Better before the buyout

2017-01-05

We have used this in a pub setting for 4 years. The pricing structure changed along with the owners about a year ago. It went downhill after that.

Pros

Very customizable.

Cons

Their customer service is awful.

Recommendations to others considering Ambur

Turn off automatic updates and don't update until the update has been out for a few weeks. They seem to put out new versions with many issues.

Nightmare from Day 1

2016-08-10

Now it works better, but the reporting is very weak.

Pros

Attractive layout of menu items.

Cons

Bad, weak reporting, difficult to get accurate sales data. Very slow customer support, some of them are good, some just blame the user for problems.

Recommendations to others considering Ambur

Get a very good router and it might work. We are high volume restaurant, and thyis system, while very inexpensive, is not robust enough for 40 employee operation.

There is no customer support

2017-06-13

Support is worse than that. Design and usee of system is there, but this company doesn't understand the urgency needed for support.

Pros

Good idea, design is good and easy to use for the most part.

Cons

Whenever it doesn't work...there is literally zero customer support, even for mission critical events. Sales data is NOT reliable.

Stay Away

2018-11-19

Pros

None, this thing is a disaster for restaurants. I installed it and switched it off within 48 hours. Stay away

Cons

It was not easy to use on the front end and the reporting functionality is terrible.

I hope to see Ambur come up with an app that allows customers to order from their mobile device from anywhere that would connect to my system outside of my wifi.
