Aloha POS

In a fast-paced, high-volume environment, this simple POS is a perfect solution to completing sales transactions. However, for establishments that would like to truly customize what their staff is seeing and ringing in, and what the guests are seeing when receipts are printed, this POS does leave something to be desired.

Jolt

Jolt works well at creating some basic scheduling and assigning different shifts. I like how each member can have their own sign-on, but I think this is one of the parts that are a bit clunky. Could use some cleaning up here.

Pros

  • 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.

  • Scheduling because it is very simple to show available shifts, days, times, and assign as needed. Then distribute the entire schedule to everyone.

Alternatives Considered

The simplicity of Aloha is something that I will always speak highly of - Conqueror cannot compare in that regard. However, Conqueror is something that was designed as an all-in-one system for bowling, food and beverage, and many other things. The fact that it is all-encompassing, and is very easy to customize, sets it apart from Aloha in the environment I am currently in. I love the functionality of Aloha, and believe it is a much better training tool than anything else I have used.

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

Return on Investment

  • This was used in a large company, so the ability to use the same POS throughout the company surely saved money, and allowed the company to be fully aware of forthcoming updates.
  • The primary use was in a traditional restaurant setting, and I still have not found a more cost-effective POS system, that is this user-friendly.
  • The ability to track our sales and labor numbers on the back end was invaluable in running a smart and responsible business.

  • Helps make food prep go quicker which makes service faster.
