Aloha POS

Aloha POS is well suited for any kind of full-service restaurant, from high volume establishments to low volume, intimate fine dining settings. The universality to the system makes it an asset for any operation. I don't see much need for Aloha POS when it comes to fast casual, or fast food establishments, as Aloha POS is geared more toward constant communication and planning between the front of house service and back of house prep. For counter service, I believe this would be underutilized, and these establishments would be fine with a simpler service.

Jolt

Jolt is great for organizations that have a lot of consistent requirements that need to be done on a regular basis. Organizations that have a lot of changing variables daily may find it more difficult to set up Jolt, but it could be done. If you want accountability for certain tasks, Jolt is a great tool for that as well.

Pros

Aloha POS

  • Extremely user-friendly. The layout and simplicity of the program made for fast, accurate transactions. This was an easy system to learn for all of our users and made training a much more streamlined process.
  • Versatility - even in the largest of transactions, my options for payment were wide-ranging (from charging to house accounts to accepting check, cash, or card). My ability to update price keys and users was extremely helpful where other systems have proven to be difficult to navigate.
  • Great support. As we transitioned to newer versions of Aloha, we always had a great line of communication with customer support, and fast, friendly service.

Cons

Aloha POS

  • Honestly, I have yet to have an issue with any of the functions of Aloha. The only thing that was a little complex was the end-of-day functions, (as we were a 24-hr casino) as if there were any open items, it would just auto-close these and that could get a little troublesome if I was behind in closing out checks. But I am not entirely sure if that was related to how our company itself was set up to run, not the actual Software.

Jolt

  • Temp Log Platform: The platform is easy to utilize and input food and equipment temps. However, if not prompt to enter temps at the exact time needed, the window expires and cannot go back and plug the values in. Kills on the audit. We since created a manually paper log.

Aloha POS

There is no comparison. Aloha is way better in every aspect.

Jolt

Since opening our first cafe, we have had Jolt right out of the box. I have nothing to compare this to.

Return on Investment

Aloha POS

  • Positive: Assists in inventory tracking through sales.
  • Positive: Quick closeout option. Our business operates on a timed experience and the quick closeout option helps us get checkouts to guests quicker during tight turnovers.
