Comparing the MaNova system to QuickBooks is like comparing a Lamborghini to a Pinto – there is no comparison!  We didn’t notice what we were missing until we made the change.  We needed something that would keep track of the entire repair process and manage our inventory efficiently and effectively.  We found this with MaNova.  We went from using paper service orders to going almost completely paperless in under a week!

Listen to what Motorola says....

According to a Motorola White Paper, they believe this....

The next revolution in retailing doesn’t require the 

birth of new technology — but the application of 

today’s technology in new ways.

the creation of dynamic shopping pathways inside 

and outside the store to meet the needs of the 

new connected consumer. Now, consumers can 

be reached in new ways — ways that offer more 

convenience for today’s harried customer while 

substantially increasing sales opportunities for the 

retailer. Through cell phones, RFID readers and 

tags, wireless LANs, cellular networks and even 

set-tops, retailers can reach consumers anywhere 

and anytime — at home, at work, during commute 

time, upon entry into your store, in the dressing 

room and even at the checkout line. And this new 

real-time connection can increase sales and reduce 

costs by enabling retailers to:


1. Excel at customer service: With Motorola retail 

mobility solutions, the information and tools your 

workers need to best serve customers is always 

in hand. For example, access to the inventory 

database enables store associates to determine 

in seconds if an item a customer wants is in 

stock and where it is located — or if it is in stock 

in another location. And walkie-talkie style voice 

communications enable store associates to reach 

managers, product experts and more to obtain 

on-the-spot answers to customer questions. 

The result is a new level of personalized service 

that will inspire customer loyalty and increase 

customer retention rates.


2. Increase buying opportunities: To touch your 

customer today, the customer needs to either 

physically visit the brick-and-mortar store, or 

log on to a computer to visit your online store. 

With Motorola technology, you can reach out 

to your customers all day long as they move 

throughout the day, providing new opportunities 

and methods to interact with your business 

— interactions that simplify busy lives.


3. Improve worker productivity: When your 

managers and store associates are armed 

with Motorola mobile technology, the efficiency 

of many business processes is improved. 

Checking stock and verifying prices can be 

performed at the press of a button right on a 

small and easy to carry mobile device, right from 

the store floor — no need to search for a phone 

to call a back room clerk, wait for the answer, 

or walk to the back room to personally search 

for the answer. The ability to place an order 

and arrange for delivery at the press of a few 

buttons reduces wait times and frees your 

associates to offer more personalized service 

for your customers.


4. Improve business efficiency: The same technology 

you use to deliver better service, increase buying 

opportunities and improve worker productivity 

can provide the real-time information needed to 

better manage inventory, make better buying 

decisions, reduce inventory replenishment cycles, 

increase inventory turns, ultimately improving 

retail supply chain efficiency.
