Overall Satisfaction with MicroBiz

We use MicroBiz to run our retail store (golf store). This includes everything from the front register, pricing management, payment processing, inventory management and purchasing/receiving. This is our core store management system, and we could not operate without it. We do use QuickBooks Online and MailChimp, and both work well with MicroBiz.
  • Ringing up sales (bar code scanning, discounts, returns, holds, voids, split tenders)
  • Inventory management, including matrix products
  • Reporting (it has many filters and settings to help drill into information)
  • Missing a couple helpful features (such as a free loyalty program)
  • The formatting on some screens is whacky and the font can be small
  • It could be easier to email receipts (need to set this before the transaction)
  • Really amazing value for the monthly fees. Less expensive than other serious cloud POS applications
  • Synch with QBO allows us to save time manually entering financial data into our accounting system
  • Bar code scanning in both the front end and back end saves time and money
We looked at several systems. Some POS vendors had really bad reviews (Revel). Others had systems more suitable for other types of retailers such as kioks and quickserve (Square). Some were too complicated or more focused on foreign markets or ecommerce. We took a hard look at Lightspeed, but just liked MicroBiz better (was also cheaper).

Suitable for small and mid sized retail businesses. Many features to automate operations (bar code scanning throughout application, auto generate POS based on mix/max, stock look-up).

May not be ideal for large retail stores. Lacks integrations with ERP systems such as SAP or Oracle. Missing some specialty features such as serialized inventory.
