Maitre'D

Maitre'D is great in a shop where multiple terminals are needed. Servers and Bartenders can use any terminal they are near (there are some exceptions, but that is up to the location to make terminals tied to people or not).

On the other hand, a small single terminal shop would be a good fit for Maitre'D, there are much less expensive options for the smaller need.

Like I said before, it's great to use when you have to manage multiple warehouses, multiple stores or multiple websites, or all of the above and you need to keep an up to date inventory for all locations. Once learned it will make anyone's job much easier to do each day.

Pros

Maitre'D

  • Maitre'd allows us to use their Broadcaster module to push product and pricing updates to all five of our regions, simplifying product rollout and updates.
  • The program is versatile and allows for integration with loyalty and online ordering systems, however that does require some advanced technical knowledge to properly execute.
  • The program is easy to learn from a cashier and management standpoint, new hires can get up to speed quickly which helps minimize required training time and ultimately labor hours.

Cons

Maitre'D

  • Maitre'D could make better use of pick lists, especially when it comes to the delivery and take-out orders. The interface is out-dated and feels awkward and needlessly cumbersome.
  • When a problem (bug) is discovered, I would like to see better and more rapid response from the company.
  • Major improvements are slow to happen. I am on the same major version as I started with 7 years ago and I believe there are customers still using the prior version. This seems like too long for a company to allow old versions to live and must force them to support too many different variations. This situation has to detract from the company to develop new and better capabilities.
  • Access to raw data is not possible, custom reports are not available. I consider this a major drawback. Entering a lot of new items, or changing a lot of item information is painful. Changes are made item by item, no bulk edits. For example, let's say I want to increase the price of beer by $1 and I have 50 types of beers, I will need to modify 50 individual items, that is easily more than an hour's work.

Alternatives Considered

Maitre'D

We have been on various versions of Maitre'd for about ten years now and came from conventional cash registers. Maitre'd obviously added tremendous value in that situation. As far as looking to the future goes, we have compared Maitre'd to various competitors and found our biggest knock on it is they haven't moved to a cloud model yet.

It's been so long since we actually chose this program, I am not sure of the competitors out now. I started using it a couple years ago, but our company has used it for maybe 10 years now? We plan on reviewing other systems next year, so I will know more then.

Return on Investment

Maitre'D

  • My shop needs a POS to operate efficiently. We are too large to go manual, there would be way too many mistakes. Maitre'D is a good choice for our need.
  • The Berg liquor pouring control system has a native interface into Maitre'D and our return on investment was 4 or 5 months.

  • It has saved us time by not having to do anything manually
  • It has kept our inventory updated so customers are not upset
  • It's always worked, so not a lot of dev/support money required
