« An happy team work that last since nearly 15 years already; at a time where a 20 meg. hard disk was a very big capacity. A video software very pleasant to use that has been able to follow the hardware evolution and that gives us a great peace of mind. In the worst situations (very rare) it repair itself or with assistance in a jiffy and although we are 7 hours on the road distant from Programmation Ultra, we are just as close to them as the telephone and modem. 
Their service and availability are top notch. The statistics lovers will be delighted. All in all, very satisfied!»

Wow! Quelle surprise! A true story: 
.
What a terrific speed!
September 2000: The video club Vidéo 1er-Angers, in France near Paris, had to rebuild all indexes after a computer problem. That process is not an easy task with a database of more than 37000 customers, nearly 7000 film titles, plus all the current transactions. Their previous software would keep them off using any computer for many hours while the repair process was running. Their new video rental software Video Vision- installed since only a few weeks - is facing this critical situation for the first time. Everyone in the store is crossing fingers, and they start the process while preparing in the expectation of a very long wait.

BUT, imagine their surprise when they saw their new software Video Vision complete this very same previously long process of reindexing all files in less than 28 seconds!! 
Wow! You can call that performance!
------------------------------
June 2004 : This store has now almost 70,000 customers. They recently upgraded the main computer to a 2.8 Ghz and the whole reindexation process is now done in less than 8 seconds

.

 Why Video Vision ?
.
Video Vision offers you the peace of mind of a software that is solid, safe, simple and easy to use.
Moreover, this software is backed by a company with more than 25 years of experience in commercial custom made softwares.

Video Vision is regularly improved since more than 20 years to make certain it is up-to-date with the changing need of video clubs.

Video Vision protects your investment by giving you later the opportunity to update to a higher level of capacity (Customers, Film Titles or to a network) by paying only the difference plus a low update fee.
All your data are kept intact.

Video Vision is very complete. You have all the necessary tools for a precise management of the Rentals, the late returns and also the reservations. You can also sell products and services while keeping a permanent inventory of your stock. Several statistic reports are available and an excellent follow-up is made on accounts receivable and late return dues from your customers.

Video Vision is easily learned. So, you can quickly train a new employee.
This advantage is important in a commerce where personnel turn over is quite frequent.

 Boost your income and profits - almost effortlessly
Here are a few tools - integrated in the software Video Vision - that will allow you to easily raise your revenues and your profits. You just have to use them! 
  • Reservation System: many customers reveiled to us they raised significantly their income since they offer this service to their customers. A powerful reservation system in entirely integrated in the software.
  • Instant Promotion (c): this function allows you to stimulate the rentals on special event days or on calmer days. When this function is activated, each customer renting a cassette wish hopefully to be chosen randomly by the computer to win a special prize or a free rental at his next visit. The number of winners and the prizes are set by the management.
  • Bonus Points Management: this function is also part of the Customer Loyalty Program. When activated, this function automatically cumulate Bonus Points on each buy and then to exchange these points against free rentals or other special prizes. To stimulate more the rentals during the calmer days, it is possible to apply a points multiplicator. Always raise a lot of interest over the customers. Promotes and stimulate customers visit. 
  • Inventory Movement: these varied sales compilations on product and services establish with precision the profitability on each item. It then becomes very easy to concentrate on the most cost effective items.
  • Late dues Management: an excellent late returns management is essential. An important part of your income is in stake here. The faulty customer will soon realise your excellent organization, thanks to your software, and will much more encline to pay.
  • Accounts receivable Management: accounts receivables are different from late dues and much be accounted separately. Here is an exemple to illustatrate this difference. A good customer is at the counter to rent a film but he sees a DVD reader that you put on sales yesterday.  He would like to get it but only brought the money for the rental. You know the client and he tells you he will come back in a few days to pay you. Instead of slipping a note jotted on a small piece of paper, Video Vision software can manage this account receivable very easily. Just as it will be easy to manage another client that has a little less money to pay his purchases.
  • Price Automatic Switching: any commerce has lower periods. One trick that can be used is to announce lower rental prices on certain days to stimulate the rentals. For example, if you want to offer special prices every wednesdays between noon and 4:30 pm, the software will change his price grid automatically for this period. This function can activate itself on any day of the week for a designated period.
  • Profitability by Categories: the film-lovers craving for certain types of films can vary a lot from region to region. Or even from two stores a few blocks away from one another. This precise revenu report by film categories will surely guide you towards the most judicious buying choices to optimize your profits. For example, it is needless to buy fiction films if your customers are not interrested by this kind of category - with talking numbers. But if your customers are craving for drama and comedy movies you will invest in these categories with certainty.
  • The electronic watchdog (REX): REX is your best informer about any inhabitual activity in your store anytime you are replaced by an employee.  Fourteen critical operations are constantly monitorized like the unauthorized deletion of an account receivable, a customer file or an invoice. Or, the unlocking of a customer file that you had previously blocked.  Only the owner can print or erase these informations when he/she wants. This function is extremely efficient to watch the employees. Allows a close watch of the boss's interest.
These tools, and many others included with the software, will help you to concentrate naturally towards the important activities of the store that promotes a maximum of profitability.

.
 Video Vision - the price is right!
If You believe that a "cheap small software will do the work" ? Good luck!

But you could also regret it bitterly. Let me tell you a true story. 

A few months ago, a potential customer asked us several questions about Video Vision.
Our replies convinced him soon to buy our software.

A few weeks later, he called back to tell us how delighted he was with the software and also that he was very much impressed by its overall speed. 

He then revealed to us that he had to throw away the previous software he bought right into the garbage - that he had paid a few hundred dollars. This inexpensive video rental software had many strange behaviors and lack many indispensable information reports - things that he did not see when he tried the demo but discovered after he had entered several hundred customer and really start rolling the business.

And, this is not all, he had to re-enter in the computer all the customers and all the films that were previously entered. He also revealed that he would have liked to discoved Video Vision well before so he would have started on the right foot. Today, this customer is part of our happy customers.

Conclusion?
Start right away with a complete, reliable and easy to use software like Video Vision from Ultra.

Choose a video rental sofware that stood the test of time

Often, at the beginning, one knows not much of the rental business and think that most video rental softwares are nearly the same. Then, one search for the less expensive, this is normal.

Except that one must not forget that the number of data raise everyday: new customers, new titles, new rentals, several history cumulatives, the sales journal and so on.

The more the information augment in the computer, the more pressure you put on your software.
Often have we seen competitor softwares that works quite well at the beginning with few data BUT the performance of any request is a pitty just a few years later with more data.

A network raise the challenge bar higher.
Some softwares (DOS or Windows) works quite well on one computer - but as soon as they are used on a network that becomes catastrophic.

And above all that, the challenge is even worse on heavy trafic days like the holyday period.

You know, any serious video rental software does not improvise itself.
Thousands of work hours are necessary to its conception and the several updates to be well up-to-date with the need of the customers. One must strengthen, refine and optimise contantly the software - like we did with Video Vision - to make sure the software will be the simplest possible to use while beeing very fast and reliable in all circumstances.

Too many times have we seen a competitor's software crashed while the store is full of customers. 
Can you imagine the clerks panic? And with good reasons.

Some will recognise themself here and know very well what we are talking about since in the majority of these situations, one must rebuild all indexes. And since these software are neither reliable nor optimized, they habitually take a very long time to reindex the damaged index files. Sometimes several hours. 
Ho! the salesman "forgot" to tell you about this little detail? Strange, isn't it?

But you will never experience any of these problems with Video Vision because this software is conceived to support very big quantities of data and will keep its impressive speed even if you use it in a network and that all users works at the same time

Would you like a concrete example?
Imagine that you finaly decided to change your old software and that you are using Video Vision since many months without any problem. 

Also suppose that your data contains approximately 7000 film titles, 6000 customers, 700 products/services, three years of rentals history by titles, by cassettes and by customers, 50 reservations, a daily sales Journal cumulated since more than 10 years (transfered from your old software), a data register of 6700 lines of information on the late returns due, a register of 2200 lines of information on the accounts receivables, all the current cassettes on rental and several other information files. Thirty nine (39) files in all.

And, one day, a very unusual situation forces you to rebuild all your indexes.
Obviously, it happens when you have all these customers at your counter - and you recall that this procedure was taking many hours to complete with your old software. You then pull a long face and start the total reindexation procedure asking yourself how long it will take with this new software - particularly that it contains more information than your previous software.

By the time you turn your back to begin making your rentals by hand and you hear a Bip telling you that the full reindexation process is completed. The timer indicate less than 12 seconds
I can imagine your amazement.

This execution time has been truly realized on a simple Pentium 450mz computer with Windows 98.
Any more recent computer - hence faster - will execute the process much faster.
That you can call performance! No more waiting.

Wouldn't you to use such a software in your store? Nothing easier! 
Just order below and Video Vision is yours in less than 24 hours after payment.

Obviously that a professionnal software like Video Vision is usually slightly more expensive at buying time because any complete and high quality software demand much more work to develop. But you will end up as a winner, since this software has all you need to optimize your profits every day.

Do not forget that your needs will change with time. You will need more reports and statistics to be able to manage your video club efficiently - therefore... choose a good software system right at the beginning that contains all you needs.

"A well planed software like will reduce your workload
significantly every day. Trust our experience."

One of our customer easily manage more than 70 000 customers on a network of 5 users with our software Video Vision.

Conclusion? Huge or small, your video store can use this very same solid and reliable software.
And you will have the guarantee that, whatever your growth, this software will grow faithfully with you.
