Clover is well suited for high-volume environments where quality and dependability are paramount. The hardware can scale easily and always looks good on the counter. I have even seen Clover hardware used in small mom-and-pop type stores. The ability to swing the monitor around for signature is really nice. Customers appreciate the ease of use. The stations we have to use nice large bright screens. Not familiar enough with the Clover product line to know if the smaller screen sizes are available for applications where space is a concern.

Kounta is particularly well suited to small to medium sized hospitality businesses. It has a great many number of add-ons and integrations that enhance the user experience and its general usefulness from a back end perspective. For example, there is the ability to program automatic menu surcharges for certain circumstances, such as public holidays. It also handles bill-splitting well. It could possibly be less appropriate for venues that need extremely detailed sales data, or for those venues that have very complicated menus or ordering options.
Read full review Pros BluePay has been very responsive when we've had questions and gone out their way to make sure that users understand the answers that are given. During our cut over to BluePay we found that there were reports that our users were used to having that didn't have an equivalent on BluePay's site. Our account rep went above and beyond to make sure that our users had the information that they needed by having custom reports sent on the schedule that we determined. Overall our interchange rates are much lower with BluePay than they were with our previous gateway provider.

There are numerous aspects to Clover's usability: the usability of their point of sale systems, the usability of their CRM and web dashboards, and the technical side of integrating with other third-party services. All are top tier. Clover's usability is excellent and I have never had a problem figuring out how to use their services at any level. The POS system has a very low barrier to entry and an easy learning curve for newcomers.

We rarely have problems, but when we do, they are major and the system becomes unusable. While Customer Support does eventually respond and fix the issue, they can take a long time. If a major problem occurs on a weekend during the dinner rush, it can be catastrophic to sales and customer returns.

None are available on the list. Clover competes with HotSauce, Paradise, Poynt, and many more POS systems. We easily sell Clover more than anything else and everyone loves it. It's easily one of the best products I've seen since I have been in integrations. The sales managers love it, our sales reps love it, and most importantly our merchants love it.

We moved from
to Kounta because of Kounta's enhanced functionality for the hospitality domain.
was, at the time, more oriented towards the retail industry and so it lacked key features that would have allowed our business to grow and become more efficient. Over time, Kounta has continually improved and adapted to better suit its customers' needs.
Read full review Return on Investment Definitely makes us look more professional, and we are able to handle products much smoother and faster The reporting allows us to see what is really selling and how much money we have actually made, which is also great, especially when you are selling things you have made or grown because you may not always have an inventory, but you can tell how much you've sold. We can't pause the fees for the "off-season," so it definitely is wasted money during those times. Read full review I find the program expensive to use Read full review ScreenShots
