Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Good system, reporting needs to improve
We mostly use the POS. Easy to set up, easy to use. Great support.
Only gripe is reporting. It’s not all that useful for decision making.
Improvements would be to allow reporting by tags, and better product groupings (restricting by category and reporting group is seriously limiting).
Need more exception reporting. Need to be able to export all data without having to go through the paid API (csv download for sales lines)
This is a powerful app that is easy to use and allows business owners to get up-to-the-minute sales information from anywhere they have an internet connection. My only request would be that the product tiles are scalable so that they can be enlarged on the larger iPad Pro screens, making ordering in fast-paced environments quicker.
Good for a cafe not a restaurant
I’m only giving three starts due to the fact that they haven’t done any change or update on hiding/locking lunch menus after certain time and also not being able to creat a feed me option were you click one button and the set menu is already ready to print. They take forever to introduce new features. App keeps crashing randomly. Costumer support isn’t great.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
