Sai Wine LTD is a Cafe located in Ghana. They focus on providing unique wine experiences to their customers, such as wine and food pairing events, wine tasting events, and so on. We reached out to their representative, Theresah, for an interview. A meeting was set with Sai Wine LTD CEO, Nadia who shared about their experience using Loyverse.

- Why and how did you start your business?

For me, it was a spiritual calling to start the business. It was something that when I was on holiday, it got in my head that people knew about wine but didn't really know how to drink it or different types of grapes, the various tools, and the whole white wine experience. It just made sense as well to take people on that wine experience and a wine journey. So, that then prompted our business to open. Within Ghana, we are the only establishments that exist that do what we do.

 

- What makes your business stand out from the other wine businesses in Ghana?

The only other wine businesses in Ghana are wine shops, whereas you walk in and you go and buy wine at retail price, but we don't do that. People can buy wine from us, that's fine, but we also pair our wine with our food. We have wines with different grapes from both old and new world wine-producing countries. We host wine events. So we do wine tasting events, food and wine pairing, chocolate and wine pairing, and similar kinds of experiences here. And we allow people to have a bottle or have a glass.

 

- Concerning the pandemic, how was last year for your business, and how did you overcome the challenges, if there were any that you encountered?

Last year was actually a blessing for us. So, our five-year lease agreement had expired in April, and Ghana went into lock-down on March the 31st. We were locked down for two weeks. And so when the ban was lifted, we had then been able to move to our new location. And then we started renovating our space. In June, restaurants were allowed to open, to accept customers to come in and in July we actually reopened in our new location and it was just fantastic. It's a fantastic new location. We got much more Ghanaian patronage than we had in previous years and we've literally been moving from strength to strength since to be honest with you.

- I noticed that you also have a website. Did you experience an increase in online orders from your website last year?

No, but what we did experience is now people can really get a gist of what food we have and what our prices are. So we're definitely getting more website traffic now. Okay.

 
- What is the philosophy behind your business?

I believe one should never follow other people. Knowing what one’s vision and dreams are and focusing on making it happen is what is most important. Focusing on the competition is not important. Rather, focus on constantly building that vision and bringing it into real life. I don’t believe in getting things quickly, and everything takes time and effort to come to pass.

- How did you find Loyverse?

Just on Google, to be honest with you, because, I mean, there are other software companies that are here in Ghana, but not what we wanted, but what they do is that they tend to build the software for you. And we didn't want that. We wanted something that was going to be online, easy to download onto all of our devices, and then able to manage and remotely as well, or be able to see remotely. So, then we came across the Loyverse. We were using one system before, but it just didn't have the depth that we needed. But then when we came up as Loyverse, we realised that it had the capacity, especially with the different types of items that we have, it had the capacity to handle it for us. Plus, not only that, but it also had the employee management system, which helps us with our HR elements as well. So, yeah it just made sense. 

 

- Did you experience any difference in your processes, your reports...?

Yeah. In terms of inventory management, it helps us a lot. And also in terms of us being able to know where we're making money, because of the element on the items where you're able to put the cost and then the price. So then that allows us to know where we're making money on certain items that really helps us a lot. And then inventory management as well. It helps us to give reports to our suppliers much easier as well.

 

- What do you see Loyverse doing for your business in the future?

Well, we're going to be opening more establishments of the same business. So we're looking forward to having each establishment report and being able just to look at basically a dashboard of how each location is performing. Sometimes the issue that we have is not necessarily through Loyverse, but rather the users not knowing how to update the system. Once we know the staff are better trained and more attentive to how to use the system, we know we will definitely get more usage or more value out of the app.
 

- Thank you so much for taking the time out to have this brief interview with us. Do you have any words for Loyverse team?

Yeah. That's well done and just keep it up!

      ー お店の紹介をお願いします
      ホーチミンの旧名であるサイゴンの時代の家庭料理や、伝統料理を提供しています。調理場のメンバーはベトナムの著名なホテルで20年以上はコックの経験を積んだ一流のシェフです。私自身は日本で6年間ある会社で飲食関係の仕事をさせていただいて、その後独立して独自に事業を展開しました。自分だけが通過した飲食の経験を生かしたいと思っていたところ、日本ではベトナム料理の流行があったので、この事業を始めました。
       
      ー Loyverse POS を選んでいただいた理由は何でしょうか。
      10月から消費税が変わるじゃないですか。それに対応できるシステムを導入した方がいいだろうと思い、色々調べてみました。一番気になるのは毎月の料金と初期費用ですね。
      Loyverseは初期費用が安い。自分たちが持っているものをそのまま使用できることもあるので、魅力的ですよね。
      機能は正直他社と大して変わらないと思います。今時のレジの機能は全部ついているのですが、他社と比べてコストがかからないので、使わせていただいております。
       
      ー Lenovoタブレット/ソラコムSIMについて
      軽くて、今使っているiPadの代わりとしても使えそうです。それにしても、導入しやすい価格かなと思います。軽いし、色もシックですね。ソラコムSIMを使って、Wi-Fi使ってみたんですが、支障なく、Wi-Fiよりも速度が早くて快適です。インターネットで毎月かかる料金も削れそうです。

      イベント会場での販売の効率化、在庫管理の為POSレジを探しておりました。
      初期導入のコストがかからず、なんといってもオフラインで使用できる事が最大のメリットでした。おかげさまで導入後はお客様の対応がスムースになり、売り上げも平均1.4倍になりました。
      また在庫管理も楽になり、本当にloyverseを導入してよかったです。ゆくゆくはオンラインでも利用できる環境を整え、クレジット決済などもイベント会場で使用できるようにしたいと思います。

      ー Loyverse POS を選んでいただいた理由は何でしょうか?
       無料で、売上の管理ができるア プリを探していたところ見つけました。自分でカスタムできる点が非常に良かったです。商品別の売上がわかるし、指定した時期ごとでもわかるので使いやすいです。
       最初は、売上の管理のみでしたが、軽減税率対策のためレジとして使用をしています。レシートの印刷内容をもうちょっとカスタムできるといいなと思います。

      ー どういった経緯で現在このお店を経営していらっしゃるのでしょうか?
       先代が昭和44年に創業し、私は2代目です。平成24年に先代が他界したので、そのあとを継ぎました。
       飲食店とは畑違いの仕事をしていましたが、休みの日はお店を手伝っていたため、自然な流れで後を継ぎました。地域柄、猪や鹿が獲れるのでジビエ料理も取り扱っています。
