    We use Poster at family business (two venues - bar and a pub). Overall, it has been a great experience. It is easy to record the orders (it is a great advantage during busy evenings).
    The system is stable. We haven't noticed any serious bugs, loss of data, etc.

    Pros

    * The ability to use tablet instead of the massive computer (cool for places with limited space)
    * access analytics from any device
    * Poster has almost all set of features for restaurant management
    * good API

    Cons

    Not a big disadvantage, but there are pretty few systems Poster integrates with. However, as mentioned API is well documented, so you can always connect the apps manually.

    I have been a Poster user for a few years now and witnessed a constant improvement with their product. Since Covid-19 had impacted many businesses, Poster POS, was one of the first to positively react to this, and by understanding the market contraction, it was able to offer solutions, never thought of before.
    This is one to watch!

    Pros

    This POS Software can literally run on any device you have! Even your old laptop, once it can surf the web, can open a POS instance. The way this POS has been built makes it viable for numerous applications.
    It is up there with Toast, Revel, or any other "leading" Companies, claiming to have the best.

    Cons

    Cannot send PO via email, internally. Big downside. My advice to the developers is to work on this asap. Many companies are using third-party inventory and purchasing software to compensate for this.

    It makes running our small bar very easy. We have 15 tables and a stand up bar and the system is more than adequate for that. We are using two POS registers right now. One for the waiters and one for the cashier. We sometimes add in a third POS for an Iphone if we are in high season. We love that we can pause the third POS when it isn't needed and save money that way in the low season. Highly recommended system.

    Pros

    It is easy to use. It keeps track of all inventory and recipies. I love the POS system for the waiters as it is clear and straight forward. It's easy to see what is happening via the Poster Boss app. when I'm not there.

    Cons

    Would love to see a way to take payments via the same system so it is all integrated with the accounting end. Right now we have to use IZettle to process credit cards separately. Would love to be able to take the 'PAY' button completely off the waiter POS register (Hide it) to avoid problems of waiters accidentally closing out tickets without payment. Right now it is always visible and it causes problems from time to time.

    Learning to use it is very easy and intuitive, it does not require too much time to be able to manipulate the equipment, which makes it wonderful when training a new person in the cashier area, since you can do it in a faster and more efficient way.

    Pros

    I love that I can check the status of the restaurant, the tables that are available, how long a table has been open and also get the customer's account right away.
    It also allows me to make reports by customers and waiters, as well as control the discounts or courtesies that can be granted within the restaurant.

    Cons

    The only thing I would change is to allow the tip to be added to the room charges for the Cloudbeds system.
