According to the owner and proprietor, Ron Scott, "This is something that we've been wanting to do for a long time." Ron claims that the entire inventory of his Zodiac liquor store encompasses upwards of five thousand items. He states, "We have a great variety and we have many selections on our shelves that you wouldn't normally find in other liquor stores. Our large number of available selections was a major hurdle in getting online."
Ron reports that he had researched a few third party services that provide online ordering as well as looking into doing it himself. He said, "I quickly found out what a difficult and time consuming undertaking that would be to do myself. I also found out that there are a lot of differences among the third party providers, with some requiring either a hefty upfront investment or having to sign a contract with monthly or annual payments and no guaranteed results."
"With the current economic situation and not wanting to lock myself into another on-going expense, I was about to give up on the idea of having online ordering," Ron said, "I didn't want to have to raise prices to accommodate the technology needed to get the store online."
"I had contacted ROLTOS towards the end of my research for online ordering possibilities before giving up on the idea altogether, when they made me an offer 'I couldn't refuse'," quipped Ron. "Their online ordering and marketing plan is results-based only, without any upfront costs or locking me into a contract. Their system is pay-as-you-go, so the only cost to me will be a small transaction fee and only if an order comes through from the website. They even take care of all the credit card costs since all online orders will come to me pre-paid. They invited me to review their online food court called Take Out Time On Line and assured me that their website could accommodate a specialty store such as mine. The online food court site doesn't have a lot of flash & splash but that just makes it easier to navigate and quickly find what you're looking for. ROLTOS offered to set up a test page with a sampling of my inventory and I really liked the way it was presented. I am absolutely impressed with the customer service I receive with ROLTOS."
Take Out Time On Line is a membership based online take out ordering system with members signing up for a free membership account to make online purchases. "This gives me the ability to offer special deals to my loyal customers plus as a Take Out Time On Line account holder, you get a dollar off your first online purchase", said Ron, "Membership does have its privileges!"
Ron was excited in reporting that, "We've already received an online order without any advertising or promotion and we don't even have all of our inventory online, yet. I am really looking forward to this new phase in my business and giving my customers what they have been requesting for a while now, online ordering!"
Now Ron instructs his regular customers to go to http://www.TOTOL.biz and sign up for a free account and spread the word! "I may even implement a curb-side service for those who place their orders online but don't want the order delivered! They can let me know what time they will pick up their order on the website when they complete the order and I'll have it ready and waiting for them when they get here!"
Now that's convenience!
