Montreal-based cycle shop Fitz & Follwell was finding keeping up with back-end operations time-consuming and difficult. Incorporating LightSpeed technology established a streamlined workflow, saving precious administrative hours. The company relies on the SROs (Service Repair Order) to automate tedious processes like creating customer profiles and work orders, generating invoices, and recording payment methods. Shop founder Shea Mayer appreciates the self-service interface and remote access capabilities. “Being able to stay connected remotely is important to me,” says Mayer.
