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.

  • Brink could update its hardware to the sign of the times with guest interactive POS.
  • Appears clunky at times with its processes and steps.
  • Brink needs to be able to edit it reporting features to get the desired result for time clock compliance especially in CA with Meal Break Laws.
  • Brink needs to integrate its time clock process in CA, for a team member to accept or decline time clock edits and to waive a mandatory break.
  • Brink needs better integration with KDS systems to do exactly what we need it to do as our business model develops into the future.

Alternatives Considered
CitiXsys
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.

I inherited Brink and it works for us for now. But as we grow in CA and other markets, Brink maybe becomes a challenge with time record compliance and the ability to perform up to expectations with KDS systems.

  • Positive impact on its simplicity with our growth and ability to teach and transform our business.
  • Negative impact on the business with time clock compliance in CA. We need more functionality for the Team Member experience in time clock management.
