After only 2.5 years, their Point-of-Sale Equipment, which cost them thousands of dollars, was outdated. Coastal Cupcake needed a more affordable solution that wouldn’t be as costly to upgrade so the two female entrepreneurs traded in their expensive register equipment for refurbished Apple iPads! Not only does the iPad save them equipment costs, it frees up counter space and electrical outlets, and saves paper!
Coastal Cupcake discovered a software company called, Pos LAVU, which created a custom cupcake software for their bakery. Thanks to a USB device that attaches to the iPad, customers can make credit card payments. Customers can choose to have their receipt emailed to them too. In
the future, Coastal Cupcake hopes to make the swiping technology portable on their iPhones when making deliveries.

Kudos to these innovative female entrepreneurs and fellow cupcakeristas! 🙂
