Vend Point of Sale Honored as Gold Stevie Award Winner in 2014 Awards(SM)

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- Vend, the world's fastest growing online point-of-sale (POS) software provider, was presented with a Gold Stevie® Award in the sales technology video category. The company received the prestigious award for its unique homepage video that highlights the creative side of the POS software company, and demonstrates its focus on helping independent retailers improve their business by streamlining operations.

Vend is a cloud-based point-of-sale software trusted by thousands of small businesses worldwide. The company offers a range of features that make it easy to run a complex retail business and enables retailers to process sales, track inventory, integrate e-commerce and QuickBooks online accounting, as well as manage customers and loyalty programs.

Vend's Stevie® Awards winning video showcases the people and spirit behind its products, introducing retailers to the benefits of cloud-based point-of-sale and illustrating the company's global focus on helping independent retailers simplify their business operations. In an effort to break away from the norm, the Vend product video was directed by independent filmmaker Sally Tran and features handmade paper props, a baby, a bazooka and lycra-clad stagehands.

"We filmed the Vend introduction video with the goal of introducing a technologically advanced product with a handmade feel. We wanted to give new and existing Vend customers a good look at the people behind our product," said Vaughan Rowsell, CEO of Vend. "The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program and we are honored to receive the gold award." The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations -- public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for "crowned," the trophies were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Friday, June 13 at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park Hotel. More than 400 nominees and their guests attended.

"It's an honor for us to recognize and celebrate such an outstanding class of organizations and individuals," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. "All of this year's Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie winners should be proud that the judges recognized their achievements and their ability to express those achievements in a way that captured the judges' hearts and imaginations."
