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.

TouchBistro

After a month or two, we thought that TouchBistro wouldn't be well suited for our business because we don't function like a typical restaurant. However, after having some time to really explore all of the features, AND the fact that TouchBistro is often adding new features and updates, we have been really impressed with the control we have over our business because of using the TouchBistro system.

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.

We have not used other products, but when researching other products, the TouchBistro interface seemed much more user-friendly and that is why we selected TouchBistro.

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.
