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.

    Pleasant and professional staff, which is what won us over when we first decided on the program. Love that everything is cloud-based and also can be accessed from anywhere. Menus are easy to create and modify. Great overall functionality but a few improvements could be made - offering partial refunds, for example. Also, would appreciate more prompt and regular auto-batching (we have ours set up but numerous times, it stopped working and we found out the hard way when payments weren't deposited for days; also, despite the confirmation that the setting is correct, we still have to manually auto-batch daily but we're glad to do so to ensure payment). Also, not completely sure if they are exclusive to a certain merchant service provider but at the time, in order for us to use the program, we had to go forward with that one merchant service and also had to purchase all the equipment (printer, iPad stand, etc.) we did not have a need for. In addition, being tied to that merchant also meant being tied to those fees at the rates they wanted. As far as the program itself, we find that it meets our needs, is user-friendly, offers the analytics tools we like, and is offered at a reasonable rate, especially compared to some of its competitors. We do recommend it to others. Good luck!

    Quality Software for Small-Scale Inventory Mgmt./POS

    Reviewed on 2022/09/26

    Our Fishing Tackle/Outdoor storefront started small (less than 1,500 different product SKU's).
    When we first launched, Talech served our needs well, and would have continued to serve our needs. However, our business grew and we now maintain 8,000+ product SKU's. Unfortunatly for our situation, Talech's inventory management systems didn't grow with our company's growth. Large reports are difficult to obtain, and when we require special reports, it can be challenging to acquire them.
    This software is great to use if you do not plan to continually carry large quantities of inventory (Under 2,000 SKU's).
    This is not a hard rule of course, just our experience with this software product.

    Pros

    Talech can easily tackle small-scale inventory management and POS needs. User-friendly, and is easy to train new staff members to operate proficiently in.
    Software interface is minimal and easy to navigate.

    Cons

    Inventory reports are difficult to customize, but can be done by calling/emailing Talech directly. Would like to see Talech improve in their report system with more features and user-customizable reports.

    The register fails regularly and randomly will not print receipts or open the cash drawer.

    Pros

    I chose this software as it integrates sales and inventory tracking. When it works it is brilliant unfortunately it fails regularly.

    Cons

    I have had this system operational for approximately one year, at this point we’ve got about 16 to 18 hours troubleshooting on the phone. Plus countless more hours of trying to figure out how to make it work on our own when it fails. It will suddenly not take a credit card payment, it has never done a return for us even while on the phone with support trying to make it happen, suddenly the cash drawer won’t open, or it won’t print receipts. We end up trying to reboot the machine turning things off turning things back on disconnecting reconnecting sometimes after two or three tries it works also there’s a couple of different methods that we have made notes on, we spend far too much time trying to keep this thing going.They have totally dropped the ball on me as a client. Their support technicians are excellent and are doing their very best but they don’t know have much to work with. I’ve had to send countless clients to the bank machine, or send them away with a promise to come back and pay another time, we are a small business and can’t afford to do this, some people just don’t get around to coming back. I’ve been trying for a full week to talk to an actual upper level representative of the company to try to figure out if we can solve this or I need to toss the whole system out and go with another company. They just can’t be bothered to make a real effort to get in touch with me. I provided them my direct phone number & have not received a call back.
    Be wary!!

    Talech has been a good transformation from old style cash registers for our business. I think it would do Talech good to look into what reastaurants actually need for the system to really be an asset to us. While I like Talech its ease of set up for my business was very complicated and Talech support nor boomtown could really help with what I needed. I was able to figure it out but it was a long process. I have been able to help another pizzeria more streamline there system do it works better for their needs. Both Talech support and boomtown are great, they are always trying to help and most times they can this was just a new area for them. I have never had anything but an exceptional experience from either customer support. I do love the fact that Talech does listen to customer feedback and is continually improving their product.

    Pros

    It's easy to see my monthly/weekly/daily sales
    The ability to print which catafories you want in the kitchen
    It's ease of use and ability to train new employees on

    Cons

    it doesn't have the functionality for a pizza reststaurant.
    No delivery option
    Don't have the ability to add store credit without doing a refund.

    It is easy to set up your menu and make changes. It is fairly easy for my employees, mostly highschool students, to learn.

    The system tends to slow down during busy times. It takes too long to switch from one screen to another. It also takes a long time to sync when you first log in.

    The security is not very good. It is too easy for one employee to log in with someone else's id, making the security feature essentially worthless.
    Each employee should have a card to swype in order to log in. That would be a huge improvement.

    The reports are nice and easy to read.

    All in all a pretty good system but it needs more built in security.

    Pros

    easy to learn and to set up

    Cons

    The security features are weak. Too easy for another employee to log in with another persons id. The system tends to bog down when it gets busy. It takes too long to synch when you log in.

    Response from talech

    Thank you for your feedback, Bruce. I have shared your comments about security and system lag with the product team. Please continue to share feedback with us so we can work on making improvements. We love hearing from you. Thanks for being a customer.
