    Who Doesn't LOVE CAKE?

    The data that CAKE provides me is incredibly valuable to our business. We love it!

    The data that CAKE provides me is incredibly valuable to our business. We love it!

    Pros

    We don't spend any time on training new team members to use our POS System (CAKE). Seriously, it's so easy we show them a few features and they are running it like a pro on day one. That in it's self has saved us a ton of payroll we use to spend on training.
    From a ownership perspective, we have four locations and I'm able to track them from my central office, Wonderful!

    Cons

    Negatives only fall on one piece of the equipment. The cash drawer and the insert in it are not built for the type of abuse they can take in some operations. I wish there was an option to purchase extra drawer inserts.
    There are no other negatives about CAKE.

    Reasons for Choosing CAKE POS

    To provide my customers a better more efficient experience and to allow our team members an easy to use system that we as owners could easily track.

    Reasons for Switching to CAKE POS

    Cake seemed to have a more durable product. The biggest reason was....When I spoke with all the sales staff from the different companies the CAKE representatives were the only ones that never talked negatively about their competitors. That let me know they didn't need to degrade the other guys, they had faith in the system they were selling. I now have the same faith in CAKE.

    Started out great but the recent missed credit card deposits are alarming and there seems to be a breakdown in communication internally. Might be the transition over to madmobile but something is going on. As a business owner shopping for a POS solution, I would give this time to see where this goes before jumping in. I'm in the process of shopping for a possible new solution.

    Pros

    Very easy to use and robust. Great reporting and features.

    Cons

    We are experiencing multiple instances of our credit card deposits not depositing on the days that they are contracted to deposit from Cake and it has impacted payments to vendors and payroll. There almost seems to be an disconnect between support and understanding the very real problem that this presents to a small businesses.

    Overall it's been positive. Wish there was a book/manual to refer to.

    Pros

    I am able to check see my menu entry before it publishes. This helps avoid problems that might occur through mis-catagorizing and double charging. Also can add my convenience fee to the tax line (yes, I have posted a sign!)

    Cons

    I have trouble with remembering how to structure some of the items I am entering into the menu. I have not seen any manuals to help with that.
