Lavu doubles as a business tool and a teaching module.

As a culinary and pastry arts instructor I use Lavu as both an instructional tool as well as the POS system for our in-class restaurant. I find the back of the house/management part of Lavu is an excellent hands-on tool to teach all the parts of restaurant management theory. It provides students with a real-life application that helps them understand the theory better.

  • The Lavu system is incredibly easy to use in both front and back of house operations. The format of both sides is very intuitive.
  • Lavu makes it very easy to add real life application to teaching inventory control, schedule control, etc.
  • The fact that it is cloud based makes life much easier. I can make changes on the fly and they update very quickly.
  • The only issue I have had with Lavu is that when my IT department makes changes our filters make it difficult to edit/update the system. Lavu's technical help has always been great.
Lavu is very easy to teach to new employees. I use it to teach high school students with little to no previous experience and they pick it up very quickly.

We use Lavu as the Point of Sale at our brewery to manage all sales including food, swag, and beverages.
  • Setting up menu items in POS
  • User-friendly once everything is loaded
  • Easy to make changes to menu items on the fly from any mobile device
  • Initial training
  • Split check credit card transactions, seem to have issues with some of the checks not closing out properly or being charged correctly
  • Servers being allowed to run server summary even though they have unpaid checks (not supposed to happen)
  • Have had the system go out on a weekend and took 20 plus minutes to get back online
  • Calling the help desk on the weekend is a joke, takes 45 to 90 minutes to get help
This product is well suited if you need two supergroups, need to manage inventory, and need be a POS.
