Aloha POS

Restaurants and bars are what I believe to be the best place to utilize the Aloha POS system. We primarily use it for bar orders, as our restaurant is prepaid buffet with cash bar. Because we only use it for drinks, it keeps the screen options to a minimum making it easier to navigate for our bartenders and servers.

Avero Slingshot

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.

Alternatives Considered

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.

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 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.
