Automating community bike shop information flow with a freeware system
A demonstration of a virtually free hosted web platform for entering, tracking, and reporting your shop's major transactions related to bikes, people, and money. Enter bikes into inventory, print sales tags, email donation/sales receipts, track visitor hours and credits, track expenses and sales, publish your bikes to a searchable catalog on your website, collect email addresses, and more. An account for using this system is available at no cost to non-profit community bike shops, however donations from financially sustainable shops are welcome to help offset operational and development costs.
This workshop is a demo of a custom system used by a few shops in Delaware and New Jersey. The workshop might be more useful and complete if others wanted to join to share what tools they use for shop management.
