This product works very well for me and gives me a great value at the price point of the equipment.It is very customizable. I'm a midsize family business and the cost really hits the sweet spot. The fact that they use apple only products forces me to pay a premium price for the hardware but I know that the equipment will retain its value. They always end up answering my questions even if it takes a while but I can make changes and check the numbers instantly.

Lavu is a great POS system at an affordable price, systems like the one I have would have cost me double or triple of what I paid. Inventory, hourly sales, employee time, the list goes on and on of what it’s capable of doing Their team at Lavu are always improving on there operation system it almost seems monthly.

Benefits: It was a band-aid for when I didn't have anything. LAVU has now become an albatross around the neck of our business. Generically, the price is what what the draw for me an my small Craft Beer bar. I even recommended it at the beginning to a few other customers, but it was a mistake.

Very high praise for the technical software end as well and the customer support which tries to attend to all issues in a timely manner. The software is very powerful and efficient once you learn how to use it properly. The price was one of the biggest selling factors.

It's a very nice system. Easy to use and a better cost than others. It needs a lot of work providing more flexibility in changing features that your place might need more than another. The front end interface for the servers is great. It makes order taking simple and organized. And prints out very nicely for the kitchen

Lavu ... Not For U

Reviewed 2015-09-06
Review Source: Capterra

Pros: If you are running a simple quick serve model restaurant (or another retail business with perhaps one terminal) then the software is easy to program and the system will probably allow for simple modifications to fit your business. Additionally, the pricing is fairly competitive for a single license. Beyond that limited use I would strongly suggest looking for an alternative. We used the software for more than 2 years but are aggressively looking to replace. *Literally dozens of server crashes... 100% preventable *Unusable features (delivery, CRM, inventory) - for clarification all of these features are promoted and are in fact inside the package - however none of them did what we expected. None. *Anytime there is a problem software support is very nice, and quick to point the finger at someone else (internet speeds, credit card processing, etc.) *Promoted (not sure if they still do or not) that user devices were unlimited. ... turns out not to be true... if your user is processing sales (as in point of sale) then that device will require a paid license... *Doesn't appear to be supporting new CC processing technology and no communication about if they will Overall a bust and in the three years we have been open it's the stand-out worst decision we've made.

New employees have no problem using it right away. Very intuitive. It makes other super expensive systems like micros and aloha dinosaurs. I had a couple of issues at the beginning but all were easily resolved. Technical support has been great too. I love the backend real time reports and how easy it was to set up and change menu items. My servers are also very happy with poslavu and they love taking orders on iphones. I don't understand any of the bad reviews, I believe the issues must be user error not the system itself. POSLavu is releasing updates all the time and I'm excited to see what else I'll be able to do in the future. I believe this is a great company who is dedicated to improving an already great pos system. I do recommend getting a Mac mini local server.

Best Customer Support I've Every Had

I am very happy with my Lavu system. I had some initial troubles, but the support team spent a good amount of time helping me identify the problem. My network was a mess. We didn't have something that was solid enough to run Lavu. Now that the setup is done right, I have had little issues with Lavu. In fact, my floor is running more efficiently then it ever has. I highly recommend this product. A couple tips: 1) Get a Lavu Specialist. I didn't have one at the beginning, and it cost me. If I had gone through a Specialist, and not a DIY, I wouldn't have had so many problems at the beginning. 2) Get to know their support staff. They are really nice, willing to help, and very (very, very) patient.
