Control is at the heart of every great operation

We understand how important control is to the running of our customers’ business. Thats why we have created a Control Centre as the beating heart of all our solutions, offering all the reports and tools you need to manage online from wherever you need to be. The Control Centre is included with all Wil-U modules at no extra charge for unlimited users.

At-a-glance dashboards allow your teams to have their fingers on the pulse

The Control Centre is designed to be specialised for each user so they have the information and tools tailored to their needs. Through simple set-up tools, you can decide on what your shop managers see, whether it be just their shop or being able to compare themselves to other shops, you decide. You also have the flexibility to have shops in different groups, create league tables and set budgets and targets; all the tools you need to have an informed and motivated team.

Finance Reporting and Exports

The Wil-U Control Centre also has a raft of exportable reports that multiple teams within the charity can use to analyse days, weeks or even months of data of various types. In the finance realm, there are a range of Finance and Banking reports to import data into numerous popular accounting packages and facilitate reconciliations backed up by audit trails. We also offer an API if you are seeking a fully automated interface to your accounting or CRM solution.

Regular Updates and
Device Control

Wil-U solutions come with built-in device control, which means you can always see where your devices are and how they are performing. Wil-U’s charity reporting solutions are provided with regular updates to ensure you always have access to all the latest features.

Scalability

Scalability

We have built the Wil-U Control Centre on the same platform as the tools used by our parent company, PXtech, which supports over 40,000 locations worldwide. So, you can be sure you always have access to your data with up to the minute performance no matter how large your operation.

It was super easy to buy and very easy to set up. We took it out of the box, went through the steps and it all worked great. We started taking sales almost immediately!

Volunteers picked up using the system within five minutes – that’s a testament to how easy it is to use! Having never had an EPOS solution before, it was big news for us. There was some hesitation from the older volunteers at first but they’ve taken to it like a duck to water!
