How to Seamlessly Switch from Lightspeed to RepairDesk

If you’re a repair business and have been using Lightspeed for a while, chances are that it has started to feel generic or just not what you really want. On top of that, you are not getting consistent customer support, and your enterprise-level operations are not being streamlined. 

We totally understand. While Lightspeed has got you covered with process optimization and helped you automate operations, the journey has been tedious.

You’re hesitant to make the shift because of all the ticketing, invoices, and customer data that is hosted in your Lightspeed account, as well as the time and training required to get your employees onboarded again. It’s quite normal for service businesses to switch POS software in order to find the right solution that helps them grow. 

RepairDesk makes the process seamless and is here to take you much further.

Switching from Lightspeed to RepairDesk will not require any extra effort. For instance, you might be asking:

  • How do I set up RepairDesk POS?
  • Will I be able to import my customer information?
  • How will I manage inventory with RepairDesk?
  • Will I be able to get the right payment integrations?
  • Will I have to provide additional training to my repair shop employees?

We’re here to ensure that your transition to RepairDesk is frictionless and get everything you need right from the start. One of the perks of cloud-based POS software for repair shops is that it can automatically access data from remote servers, meaning you don’t have to worry about that part.

Here, we break down the different areas you might need help with:

Sign up and Run RepairDesk

Setting up RepairDesk on your business system is super easy. Once you show your interest, our Product specialist will reach out to you and set up a discovery call to find out your pain points and customize the trial account to serve your specific workflow needs.

You can stop worrying about stock-outs and take full control of your inventory. RepairDesk assists you with the ordering of spare parts and keeping stock levels steady at all times.

RepairDesk notifies you whenever a spare part reaches its reorder point, so you do not have to keep a customer waiting. As a result, you can prevent inventory leakage and issues like administrative errors and vendor fraud.

Get Help with Staff Training

Running your repair business successfully requires you to keep your staff motivated and updated with the latest market trends. More importantly, they need to be trained on how to fully benefit from the POS software they are using.

Skipping staff training often leads to problems like delays and miscommunication among employees, which ultimately results in delayed repairs – something you really need to avoid.
