My experience is limited to POS and Stock Control only. We do not use the reservation function for our Guesthouse. Overall, I am happy with the product since it largely does what we need it to do.

Pros

Fairly easy to use and well suited for smaller restaurants for both POS and Stock Control. The support I have received in the past has been exemplary and problems have always been resolved fast and satisfactorily.

Cons

It would be nice to have more buttons displayed on the home screen. Having to scroll through button lists take up unnecessary time and lead to mistakes. Out of stock items are not displayed on the "Stock on Hand "report. A zero would help to assess at a glance that a product is out of stock. Dockets and Invoices are not customizable. When using formatted dockets, column widths are too wide leaving very little space for product descriptions - this, by the way, is the only support ticket that has not been resolved. I miss the ability to be able to log into the system remotely via an app in order to perform functions that are not permitted by on-site staff. Currently I need to come into the restaurant to resolve problems when I am at the restaurant.

Response from Semper

Thank you very much for your feedback.It is much appreciated.
we will make a change to teh docets to include more information as you request.
I am not sure if you are aware that we have a hosted version where you can log-in at any time and view all tables, sales etc. You can also make change from anywhere.

Good, but do feel we were promised features during sales meetings that either do not exist, does not work as advertised or and most importantly, is still in development and development is taking slower than we were told it would.

Pros

Fairly easy to use on a day to day basis for operations

Cons

Still needs some development on the back end with regards to rate management and visibility of rates when not in use, example: you cannot set rates to turn on and off as specific dates in the year and if rate is not available it is still visible and bookable on the system, but at a zero rate.

Reasons for Choosing Semper

It was too expensive, and had to pay for every feature. Also offered less integration to local OTA sites. Lastly it was server based and not Web-based so not great for remote use.

Reasons for Switching to Semper

Cost was better that Opera Support better than RoomRaccoon locally More features than NightsBridge

Sometimes the different reports relating to revenue and stock control do not provide consistent information that relate with each other, this makes accurate reporting, forecasting and revenue balancing very difficult.
