Kobey's Swap Meet, California Migrates to a Paperless Environment with Booth Tracker
BLUE BELL, Pa., March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- March 18, 2014 - E-SoftSysTM, a total solutions provider for flea markets, indoor markets, swap meets and antique flea markets, today announced that Kobey's Swap MeetTM, California with over 1000 spaces has successfully moved to a completely paperless environment with regards to their space rentals and vendor check in functions by migrating from their in house custom built application to - Booth TrackerTM, the premier management software from E-SoftSys.
According to Chuck Pretto, Vice President & Counsel of Kobey's Swap Meet, "Making the transition from a home grown system to a new application is never an easy decision. Although, we were aware of the Booth Tracker program for a long time, we desisted to switch for many years as we were well versed with our in-house developed system and our staff was comfortable with it, despite many limitations. Nevertheless, we had always kept our eye on the Booth Tracker program and have seen them constantly grow over the years with addition of various new features and introduction of several modules, which assured us that they are in sync with the evolving trends in the flea market/swap meet industry. We finally decided that it was time to make the change and went ahead with implementing the Booth Tracker program. Having used the program for some time now, the management team as well as our staff are glad that we made the decision to switch, as Booth Tracker has helped us to get rid of some of the manual processes that we had in place during our old system and helped us go paperless on the way we now rent spaces to our vendors. With the issue of vendor ID cards, we are able to electronically record all space rental transactions or vendor check-ins and completely stopped issuing paper receipts to our vendors. We are impressed with the rich functionality that Booth Tracker offers and with the professional approach of the team to accommodate some major changes in the program to meet our unique requirements. We are also extremely happy with the customer support services provided by the Booth Tracker team, which is available 7 days a week. I am happy to recommend the Booth Tracker program to other swap meet owners. "
According to Kat Shenoy, President & CEO of E-SoftSys, "I have known Chuck Pretto for over 13 years and consider him to be a very good friend. Even though Kobey's did not convert to Booth Tracker until recently, Chuck has provided us many valuable suggestions over the years, which helped us to improve our product offerings. It is very heartening to see Chuck's son Anthony Pretto, who is now taking an active part in running the swap meet operations continuing the trend that Chuck started by giving us input on incorporating new technology such as Android tablets in to our product offerings. A video created by Anthony on how Kobey's is using our Android tablet based MobilRental module to streamline their vendor check in process can be seen on YouTube at http://youtu.be/AAMgN5S8trE. We look forward to a long term and mutually beneficial association with Kobey's Swap Meet and will continue to work closely with Chuck and Anthony to further enhance our products."
