Manyavar store was set up in Varanasi by Sanjeev Yadav, in the year 2007. The store brings an exquisite collection of ethnic wear for both men and women, making this label the most preferred choice for fashion lovers in Varanasi, for their special occasions. Sanjeev Yadav expanded his store to three locations within Varanasi, building excellent infrastructure spaces for this brand, with a wide collection of fashionable ethnic wearables that cater to everyone's preferences.
Though Sanjeev Yadav was willing to embrace the latest technology to make payments smarter, his basic challenge was equipping his staff with hands-on knowledge related to the use of POS technology and empowering them to use, keeping in mind the business advantage. Cashiers and other staff members knew how to operate on a basic level but found themselves stranded, when faced with an unexpected situation, where the receipt doesn't print, or when they need to re-visit the last transaction. They also found it difficult to use POS machines to accept all forms of payments and would be okay accepting cash payments.
"Pine Labs has best-in-class technology, which not only helps us accept payments, but translates leads into business. The only challenge that I faced was in understanding all the features and processes that their POS machine offers." - Sanjeev Yadav
Pine Labs' POS technology is robust and designed to help merchants grow their business. However, the scenario where a store cashier has to struggle with the machine, to accept different types of payments and/or complete the transaction, can be disastrous for business.
Experts at Pine Labs understand that it is important to introduce new technology to help scale a merchant's business as well as provide training to help merchants equip their staff on how to use it.

Six staff members from the Manyavar store enrolled for the courses on the Academy portal and received training on the nuances of the Pine Labs POS machine that they are currently using at their store. The training helped them understand the features and benefits of using Pine Labs POS machines better.
"The only challenge that I faced was in understanding all the features and processes that their POS machine offers. However, this too was addressed by them through their Academy training programs. Six people from my team enrolled themselves for the training program of Academy by Pine Labs, which explained all the processes to us, step by step. Today, my workforce is empowered to quickly perform various forms of transactions and we are able to deliver a better customer experience" - Sanjeev Yadav
