About talech

talech is an iPad point of sale (POS) system which includes tools for taking orders, managing inventory, processing payments, running promotions, tracking employee hours, taking and managing appointments and timed-service and more. The software is suitable for a range of restaurants and bars - full service restaurants, bars, cafes, casual dining & quick service restaurants, outdoor venues - retail outlets including apparel stores and service businesses such as salons, hairdressers, spas, nail bars, barbers, pet grooming and so many more.

talech allows users to manage their inventory in real-time, with the ability to add products and edit costs, prices, and quantities. In retail outlets, barcode labels can be printed and barcodes can be scanned to add items to orders, and product variations can be created for different sizes or colors. For restaurants, talech can connect to multiple printers, allowing users to send orders to kitchen and bar printers. Bills can be split, part-closed and left open for other customers. For services, appointment scheduling is available alongside timed-services, a customer-facing booking website and staff profiles to showcase your services. Across the board, multiple payment types can be accepted, including cash, checks, credit cards, and gift cards. Discounts can be applied to whole orders or individual items when running promotions, with options for dollar value and percentage discounts, and users can view a detailed breakdown of the discounts applied across all orders. Detailed reports give users insight into sales, transactions, top-selling products, and employee performance, allowing the identification of patterns or trends. Daily summaries are also generated at the end of every day.

talech includes an integrated time clock, which allows employees to click in and out at the POS and generates timesheet reports, enabling users to track the hours worked. Employee permissions can be used to control who is given access to the cash drawer, and users can track all transactions including pay-ins, payouts, and drops.

    At first, we all loved our new Talech POS. It is very easy to use and train new hires on. Then all these updates rolled in and some of the features didn't work for us. First, employees were able to print out their daily time sheet that included their sales for the day. This was not a good thing for our company, because we work as a team and we have people on the sales floor making the sales and then people processing orders at the end of the day. Of course, processors would seem like they made the most money that day. I have tried to get this changed, but was told it couldn't happen in the near future, but it was noted. Then, we experienced some glitches in the discount button. last week, we tried to apply a 10% discount, and it would register as giving a discount in the $1000's. This was really frustrating and I haven't had a chance yet to call tech support. Shortly there after on a busy Thursday, we were unable to process credit cards because that option was down in the system. Luckily, we had an analog credit card machine that we were able to use. I tried calling tech support for 4 hours, and couldn't get through. We had to wait to process orders until the next day when the system was up and running again. Another thing we have issues with is finding tickets to reference an open order. Apparently, it purges from the system after 3 months and we have to call tech support to retrieve it. There are a few other issues that I have that I am unable to articulate right now, but that is the bulk of my frustration with the program. Please take these responses into consideration. Having my concerns addressed and fixed would be amazing as I love this program and I want it to succeed so that my business can succeed as well. Thank you for taking the time to read my review. Please contact me to discuss further.

    Pros

    That it is cloud based and we use apple ipads

    Cons

    It is glitchy at times, the time sheet with individual employee sales needs to go.
    Purging 3 month old tickets and we can't find them unless we call tech support.

    We have used them with two separate businesses. One was a quick service, and the current one is a full service, fine dining environment. The register works with both of these. I was surprised at how easily we were able to expand and control our in-house systems. They have become so feature-rich over the years. Staff train quickly on it. Price point is competitive. Customer service is very good.

    Pros

    Discounting weekly specials - set once and done
    Tagging for specific printers, discounts

    Time Clck and time sheets

    ICMP readers are sometimes an issue

    The new house account stuff seems to be a benefit for someone like me. I let folks run a tab. The software has gone down on me a few times during a shift and Talech just asks you to be patient. The lack of knowledge from the help desk is frustrating.

    Pros

    Easy to navigate, fairly straight forward.

    Cons

    If there is an issue, it all goes down and customer service is not helpful usually. I have had to call other IT people in to get us up and running because help desk usually can't or they take an hour for a one button fix to a problem.
