Likelihood to Recommend

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
