Helping small businesses succeed.
Our story began at a Stereo Town store in Des Moines, Iowa back in the early 1970s. At that time, there were very few technologies to help growing retailers, like us, gather information about their business. Being innovators by nature, we realized that the only way to solve the problem was to create an integrated business solution ourselves.
After using the product to successfully to run our 50+ stores, we released TylerNet to the market in 1979. Today, it’s still being used in stores across the United States and Canada. In fact, our first customer is still a customer.
Around 2007, we realized the need for a simplified solution that had all of the key features of a more complex system. Using over 30 years of experience, we created Smartwerks, an integrated Point of Sale, Inventory, and optional Accounting system that is easy to use and helps small to mid-sized specialty retailers compete with the big guys.
In 2018, we began offering customer engagement tools for businesses of all types. SmartConnect, powered by FanConnect, makes it easy and convenient for owners to reward and connect with their customers, wherever they may be. Taking advantage of text, email, social media, and almost any communication medium you can think of, SmartConnect is an extremely effective way to grow your customer list and increase loyalty.
On a typical day, you can find us 20 short minutes from beautiful Clearwater Beach, Florida. Over that time the retail industry has changed, and we’ve changed with it–while learning a lot in the process. One thing has not changed, though: our unwavering goal of providing software solutions that make you smarter about your company and help you make better business decisions. Decisions that result in company success and growth.
