STORIS, Inc.

STORIS is a great solution for all aspects of a retail furniture store. It is well suited to incorporate modern technology for better communication with customers and vendors. We also use the STORIS website module to advertise our business, and it synchronizes data from our inventory module enabling automatic updates to the website. Transitioning from our previous software provider was a bit difficult because we were used to doing things differently for almost 35 years.

TouchBistro

TouchBistro has a very nice and user friendly point of sale system. They also have a very nice online ordering platform that integrates with the point of sale system. The customers are happy with the online ordering system and find it easy to use. The problem we have is that TouchBistro sent us a very small card reader and cumbersome to use for the clerks and customers. We have tried to get a card reader from TouchBistro that better suits our business but have not had any luck and little response

TouchBistro

  • The best thing about Touch Bistro is how user friendly it is! Works just like an iPhone. My younger employees hardly need any training on it.
  • Touch Bistro is very easy to set up and to maintain on a daily basis. Putting in my specific products and ingredients was simple. Adding modifiers, pricing and descriptions was simple enough. We have specials that change daily and updating the system in the morning is fast and easy.
  • Employees can clock in and out with Touch Bistro. Inventory can be tracked and updated.
  • Running reports is important in my business. Touch Bistro allows me to easily track my sales, for any period of time. I can easily find the numbers I need to pay my sales tax or do payroll. With just a few clicks I can compare my sales from month to month or year to year.

Cons

STORIS, Inc.

  • Currently the client platform has to run in a Windows environment. But I understand they are starting the address this.

TouchBistro

  • Online ordering can not be added on to once the customer arrives, can’t edit or change anything once placed
  • Slow speed to place next order, and syncing with debit machines
  • Frustrating that screen needs to be closed until payment goes through, hard in a very busy restaurant
  • New updates always cause glitches in the system. The last update I now have drinks printing to my kitchen that never did before.
  • Admin and servers not being able to do printouts
  • Discounts not displaying on day printouts

    Usability

    STORIS, Inc.

    This can be an overwhelming experience if you are new to point of sale software. There is a lot of information and decisions that have to be made as you set up this system. I highly recommend the in person training to get a better idea of the process. With that being said, this is the reason you want a system like this, it gives you the ability, control and support to build a system that meets your needs with the flexibility to make changes as you grow.

    First of all, I hardly ever need support for Touch Bistro, that’s how well it works. In the very instances over the years where I did need to call, customer support was easily accessible and fast and accurate with their responses

    Alternatives Considered

    STORIS, Inc.

    I don't think this company exist any more. But at the time we did an evaluation of the two companies to see which came out on top. At the end, it was clear that Storis was a much better transaction based system. It focused on functionality that would help you take care of your customer. The other focused more on reporting and executive level information.

    Toast does their own credit card processing in house, so we didn't have to deal with a third party. It streamlined things for us and gave us access to options that we didn't have with TouchBistro as a quick service Taproom. Again, both are great, it truly comes down to your setup and needs.

    Return on Investment

    STORIS, Inc.

    • STORIS has allowed us to continue to have excellent inventory control. We have always had virtually no problems with not-in-location merchandise, and we have maintained that level of accuracy with Storis.
    • We have improved efficiency by eliminating manual postings for certain receivables, payables, and sales information. We require less staff to handle the day to day processing.
    • We also use the optional module for delivery truck routing, which integrates well with the STORIS system.
    • The website integration with the STORIS system has enabled us to show products much easier than we did with our previous software solution & web host provider. There is no longer much manual updating required.

    TouchBistro

    • The ROI is fantastic. Before TouchBistro we used a cash register with a paper tape and stand-alone credit terminal. Average transaction times were around 30-45 seconds. A long awkward time for a customer to stand and wait.
    • Because of the ability to almost instantly bring up the day/week/month’s metrics, I can plan and accurately schedule labor to accommodate the ebbs and flows of customers.
