Can anyone recommend a good Point Of Sale System?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.

I have not posted in a long time, as we are no longer in the cake business. We have grown into a small French patisserie... It actually kinda happened fast and naturally. We no longer make many cakes, so my postings are no longer relevant here. But, I have missed all of the great support from the community here.

I now have a mor general question for our shoppe. We currently use square register to cash out customers on our iPad. This has been fine for our small shoppe, but now that we are planning to open a second location in an upscale mall, we are looking for something a bit more classy.

Hoping someone has some solid recommendations, from personal experience.

We hope to find the following:

Create barcodes for our products
Scan barcodes
Touch screen check out
Basic reporting

Looking to lease the needed equipment and software as a package.

Any suggestions?

for a bookstore with coffee & snacks we had a separate store pos for bar coding, inventory, sales, gift cards etc, and then quickbooks for accounting--i wish we had just gone with qb or one system for everything including the swipe machines & all but it worked at that time--the pos dumped into qb--i shudder to think of it--so many brick walls and falderal. all in one is my favorite! since i know qb i'd stay there myself

 

love it when the technology does my thinking for me

 

bar codes--easy

touch screen is just a one time purchase

I got more reports than i knew what to do with

 

and research the gift card (swipe card) aspect as well--follow all the way through the process as to how much they cost you to purchase and how much to maintain gift card program monthly--varies tremendously--but once you're in with that you're in

 

AND you can link to both stores too wow cool

 

i don't envy you the task of making this decision--maybe it's different now --mine was set up six years ago-- but it seemed like you couldn't get to know what you really wanted until after you'd gotten your feet wet & made the choice--i would so go interview other similar restaurant owners--esp those that just set up. technology is moving at tsunami speeds--and you'll want to have tipping on there too-- miles of minutiae

 

good luck!
