Aloha POS

Aloha is great. The system is designed for very high volume use, it is pretty secure, and it is ridiculously easy to learn and navigate around in. In a casino, I am on the terminal constantly, as well as the other servers on their terminals, and very rarely do we have any connectivity issues, it never freezes on us, and it gives us solid reports at the end of the night

If you need to have a visual front end for anything that is not hard to set up then this is the product to use. It does require someone with some coding knowledge but if you don't [have that] I am sure support can help as needed. The 2-factor authentication is great once we went live.

Pros

Aloha POS

  • The setup and ease of use is a huge plus to me. It is very clearly organized, supports high volume use, and gives us a lot of options as servers, to keep track of our schedules, sales, tips received, and tips paid out.
  • One cool function that I like is the recipes function. We had ours set up to where if you held down the button of the item you are questioning, for example, if I needed to look up the liquors in the long island iced tea, then it would display the recipe that I am looking for. Saves a LOT of time when you are busy or need an answer quick for a customer. This IS a function that has to be set up with the initial setup, from the back end, which I wasn't a part of but it was great having it available to us for food and drink menu items.

Alternatives Considered

Aloha POS

Aloha is much better than Revel and MICROS. Revel is not set up to handle very large volume of transactions & use. Aloha has many more features than the other two, with more thorough reports, etc. I personally have used ALOHA at several restaurants through the years, but I have never been a part of the implementation process.

Avero Slingshot

Overall reviews and after speaking to several companies using Avero it was the clear choice. We looked at many more than just the couple we reviewed but those 2 we narrowed down due to similar cost and features. Slingshot was just easier to understand and implement into our environment.

Return on Investment

Aloha POS

  • Aloha POS has had nothing but a positive impact, as its efficiency allows for more organization and communication for all staff involved, ultimately requiring less staff to operate the restaurant, and allowing for a greater ROI.
  • Specifically, with this system, a server can confidently service an 8 table section due with so many duties streamlined. Without this system, a server would have many more steps to take in executing service, and would only be able to effectively service 3-4 tables. This allows for greater ROI in reduced labor for the establishment, and greater ease and income for the server resulting in higher employee satisfaction and lower turnover.
