Likelihood to Recommend

Clover

Clover is perfect for restaurants, as well as any customer-facing company (whether a restaurant or other retail, etc.) that has multiple employees thanks to its shift management. Clover is great when you are trying out different promotional offers and discounts as well, such as happy hours at restaurants. It is less appropriate for a small business with very few employees, or a sole proprietorship, which might not use all the extra features Clover has to offer.

QuickBooksPOS

QuickBooksPOS is an awesome tool for small businesses, the system is not that complex and it can be managed by non-tech associates. It comes along with a tutorial section which was very complete and understandable. Dashboard is well designed and organized. Overall the experience of using the software for the first time was very comfortable.On the other hand, I wouldn't recommend this software to big companies that manage a lot of inventory. I don't feel that the software can handle a lot of data on the inventory management. The limitations that the software has may cause confusion for big companies.

Cons

Clover

  • The setup of the app could use some improvement.
  • I feel like the app is a little confusing to navigate.
  • This may be difficult for older users who are not as comfortable or savvy in an app setting.

QuickBooksPOS

  • Synchronization with the credit card company is weak and very difficult to configure
  • Customer support is a long wait. First 5 min of a call is a machine directing you to a waiting queue. Total waiting time for 1 simple questions was 20 min
  • Allows double entry codes or SKUs
  • Delays in the process of purchase in the customer experience

Usability

Clover

Clover 9.3
Based on 3 answers
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.

Support Rating

Clover

Clover 8.3
Based on 3 answers
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.

Alternatives Considered

Clover

Clover is great because they have their own equipment, but it would be nice to make it more mobile and use it on an app from anywhere. Sometimes we go to events and have to use Square, which is another great option. For small businesses I would definitely recommend using something like Square because it doesn't have the monthly fees, it is by transaction only.

QuickBooksPOS

QuickBooksPOS is the only desktop version of the type of program. The reporting is on a complete other level compared to these cloud technologies. Inventory and ingredient breakdowns are some things that you cannot find in a user-friendly system, which QuickBooksPOS does lack.
