iVend Retail is very scalable, so can be used for small retailers, as well as multi-branch retailers. As the software is intuitive, training times are not extensive and allow a user to progress with other areas as they become familiar with the software. Any retailer will be familiar with the functions within a POS package, but there are many extra in iVend.

Ideally it can work with any kind of retailer but workarounds and customisations required to handle deliveries.

  • Data Director leaves room for improvement as it can be very tricky while dealing with a large number of master data records. Sometimes it doesn't write delete actions to POS.
  • Furniture retail is another area where improvement is required to handle deliveries.
  • Newer versions don't support data replicator which was the most reliable data tool with earlier LS Retail versions. There should be a replacement for this tool.

Alternatives Considered

The alternatives in the market may be able to achieve some of what iVend does, but there is not an alternative around that can offer all options. iVend has POS, loyalty, ecom, passes, ERP and much more out of the box, without having to customise. This results in a low overall base cost.
