Surprised how easy it was to use

Reviewed on 21/11/2022

Pros

best part of this software was how quickly I can process the payments while maintaining a constant log of each sale.

Cons

no features really missing I just had to over come the learning curve to be honest.

Quickbooks POS

Reviewed on 14/6/2022

Our overall experience since using POS 19.0 has been BAD.

Our overall experience since using POS 19.0 has been BAD.

Pros

The system is fairly easy to use and generally intuitive.

Cons

Since they did the upgrade to 19.0 they removed the multiple email options. We have used Quickbooks POS for over 12 years and it worked well. There were a few minor things we had to work around, but that was okay and it served our company well. Since upgrading to 19.0 we have had nothing but problems. Feature were taken away, the screens freeze, it locks up our computers, etc. Then there is the service issue - it will shut down my entire POS system so I'll have customer calling or waiting and not POS, can't process credit cards, ets. You call for service and it 15 minutes or more to get assistance. You go online for "faster service" and get a technician that can't help. HORRIBLE customer service. Once in a while you'll get a good technician who is knowledgeable, but that is very rare.

I have used Quickbook Accounting software for over 30 years and it's worked well. I thought using the same parent company integration would be easier and work smoothly.

This program had everything that I wanted not only did it meet expectations that exceeded them and even was ahead of me in being able to navigate problems I didn't even realize I would have

Pros

They think of just about everything and they make it so easy that it almost does it itself

Cons

There's there's a lot of content so it can be a little confusing at first but once you get it going it is smooth sailing from there
