Overall Satisfaction with Lightspeed Retail

We use it across the whole company. It makes a lot of issues quicker to resolve and easier to complete! The best part about it are the reports and analytics that it provides us. Great tools to use to further our business and to grow our business. I love that it is is cloud based and not server based.


  • Lightspeed Retail has great reports that are very easy to read and understand.
  • Lightspeed Retail is great to train new employees on because of its ease of use. There are not lots of different things that you have to learn just basics.


  • I would like to have it where returns are easier to do.
  • I would like if the inventory was not automatically added when an item is rung up and not in stock.
  • It has had a very positive impact on business. There have been fewer mistakes by clerks and therefore less money lost.
  • We have not had any instances of outage of the server. This was not the case with the last system we used.
We used Microsoft Retail Management System before this and this was in a whole other league of its own with features and ease of use. I really like using Macs also. They are much more reliable and longer lasting than IBM or Similar computers. The cloud based system is great also so you do not have to have another unit to store you database on.
Lightspeed is well suited for many applications and has the power to accommodate a small business or a large business with lots of items. I am not sure where it would be less appropriate to use it because it works well in my application here at the liquor store. It gives great flexibility to many types of businesses.
