  • Time Clock
  • Server/Bartender Check Outs
  • Ease of use
  • Clunky
  • Outdated
  • Reporting functionality is limited.
Restaurants and bars are what I believe to be the best place to utilize the Aloha POS system. We primarily use it for bar orders, as our restaurant is prepaid buffet with cash bar. Because we only use it for drinks, it keeps the screen options to a minimum making it easier to navigate for our bartenders and servers.

It is used throughout the company in a variety of restaurants and event centers. This has been used for completing transactions through payment, as well as reporting on the back end for sales and labor tracking. It was a crucial part of the sales process in every environment in which it was used.
  • Extremely user-friendly. The layout and simplicity of the program made for fast, accurate transactions. This was an easy system to learn for all of our users and made training a much more streamlined process.
  • Versatility - even in the largest of transactions, my options for payment were wide-ranging (from charging to house accounts to accepting check, cash, or card). My ability to update price keys and users was extremely helpful where other systems have proven to be difficult to navigate.
  • Great support. As we transitioned to newer versions of Aloha, we always had a great line of communication with customer support, and fast, friendly service.
  • Customizing receipt settings, such as messages to be printed on receipts, seemed to be one feature that was lacking throughout the time that I used Aloha.
  • A more detailed error message that does not simply provide a code, but also potential troubleshooting tips or a general category under which the error falls.
  • The Aloha server was frequently down at a couple of our locations for the entirety of my tenure. The problems would always be resolved quickly, but not without phone calls to our support team, or the Aloha support line.
In a fast-paced, high-volume environment, this simple POS is a perfect solution to completing sales transactions. However, for establishments that would like to truly customize what their staff is seeing and ringing in, and what the guests are seeing when receipts are printed, this POS does leave something to be desired.

There are just too many specifics to talk about. I would just say that overall Aloha POS is a great product, easy to learn and will not disappoint.
