Why Choose Thrive Over Lightspeed Retail Inventory Management
The purpose of this page is to differentiate Thrive and Lightspeed Retail when it comes to inventory management. We’re not here to tell you which is better for your business because the truth is, it depends. So if you’re looking to figure out which platform is right for you, you’re in the right place.
Yes, there are inventory and product differences between Thrive and Lightspeed Retail, but our biggest difference is at our core.
Thrive was established to provide merchants with the confidence to run and grow a healthy and successful business through inventory management. Husband and wife team, together with their friend, started Thrive to better track inventory for a boutique store in San Diego, CA. Created by retailers for retailers, Thrive remains committed to offering powerful inventory tools for merchants of all sizes around the world today.
Top 3 Reasons Growing Businesses Choose Thrive Over Lightspeed Retail
We Let You Decide What’s Best For Your Business
Because we know your retail store is unique, we’re not going to force you to run your entire business a certain way. Thrive was designed for retailers that want flexibility. After all, your business in five years might not look like it does today, and we get that.
With Thrive, you can connect a number of POS systems and e-commerce platforms we believe are the best in the industry (and we’re always adding more). Lightspeed Retail users have to go with their entire product suite, including their POS and e-commerce platform. More power to them, but that makes it hard for you to really control your business.
Inventory Capabilities That Inspire You To Diversify Your Sales
Thrive was built to break down barriers to growth. Small business owners need new channels which contribute to a stronger, diversified business. You need a platform that keeps up with you and your growing inventory.
With Thrive, easily run a wholesale operation or design your own exclusive product line. Our platform provides specific tools to track inventory from production to sale. When it comes to Lightspeed Retail, they’re a generalist which means they aren’t able to track your inventory when it starts to get complex.
Support That (Actually) Supports You
Sure Lightspeed Retail offers free support, but their customers often find they’re non-responsive and when they do get ahold of them, they’re more talk than help. We get that Lightspeed Retail support is divided between their entire business, but that’s not our style.
At Thrive, we’re only successful when you’re successful. That’s why you’ll never catch us making empty promises or leaving you hanging. Our team will be by your side during your entire 30-day free trial (because we know 2 weeks is not enough time to try out an inventory management software). Whether you want someone to help set up your account, show you everything Thrive is capable of, or just answer a question every now and then, we’ve got you. And it doesn’t stop there. No matter what plan you’re on or how long you’ve been a customer you’ll still receive the same great service.
