Pros

Good idea, design is good and easy to use for the most part. As long as you are only using one Ipad it works well most of the time.
This is actually a big negative if you are wanting to run a customer loyalty program. Ambur is great with your wifi.
Any business always wants to find ways to save money and time. This is the best solution for me and I'm sure many users feel the same way.

Pros

Love the look and interface with the customer. It truly is one of the most customer friendly POS systems on the market.
Keeps my books in order at all times, Great for teaching new employees prices on all different items. Keeps all employees honest.
It is Fast and supports all the functionalities of a real restaurant POS, Happy Hours, Purchase Order, Time Clock, Recipe Costing, Inventory management, Auto creation of PO from low stock items.

Cons

It was not easy to use on the front end and the reporting functionality is terrible. The training was the worst I've ever seen.
Then Ambur blamed us for re-starting the frozen App. Then wasted more time handling chargebacks.
This is a mom and pop platform. Support is worse than that.

Cons

Customer service the worst. The first month we were on the phone everyday with problems.
Went well for a few months then more problems. I paid for this unit in our second location and it still in a box because they wouldn’t take it back and we are not using it.
Often lag or some functions not performing correctly. Fix can range anywhere from as quick as the next hour to a couple days for next update.
