    Pros
    I love how wonderful the customer service is. If there is ever an issue that are quick to remote in and find a solution.
    Great little POS system and very stable. I like the program and its simplicity, very fast and does a good job.
    It's easy it impute menu changes and 86 anything that you've run out of for the day. IF your a restaurant that makes changes to your menu daily, this system is an amazing help.
    Cons
    First installed system in 1988. Went through many problems including company bankruptcy, no support, re branding, and upgrading.
    It will freeze up sometimes and when it does it can sometimes be a pain to reboot.
    It would take a book to go over all of the problems with this system so i will be short.

    Comprehensive and easy to use

    Reviewed 5 years ago
    Pros

    What I like the most about this software is the reporting function. It provides the management many options of reports that help to control the cash and inventory, including the tip distribution. The reports can be used directly for the audit work which was essential for our accounting department.

    Cons

    What I like least about this software is there was no associated mobile app back then. But now the company has developed Squirrel Mobility.

    Squirrel is a great way to make your restaurant run faster and more efficiently.

    Pros

    Squirrel is a very effective way not only to take orders from customers, but to expedite the service. When a server enters the order into the pos system, it goes directly where it needs to go.. Drink service goes to the bar, hot service goes to the kitchen, etc, etc. It's easy it impute menu changes and 86 anything that you've run out of for the day. IF your a restaurant that makes changes to your...

    Cons

    I like squirrel. There's not too much I can say negatively about it. I would like to know if we open another location, if there is a way to transfer all the menu data into the other location without having to reconfigure the system? I know there has to be a way to do it because mass restaurant chains use this system.

    Vendor response

    Thank you for your comments Jennifer! Yes, Squirrel is great when you're looking to grow! Contact us in our general mailbox or to your salesperson directly when you're ready to expand and we'll help you set that up!

    Good for very basic POS. Other than that, avoid.

    Pros

    Quite a bit of information can be entered/customised with the software, although it's difficult to get it exactly the way you want it. It's also nice that it has multiple currency options.

    Cons

    Like with anything, if you use it enough you get used to it and become quicker at it. This might be fine if the software could keep up, but unfortunately it's very slow and very inneficient. Freezes quite often. Not very intuitive for new staff, and the tickets are very hard to read. The UI is very archaic.

    Squirrel POS Review

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    We are pleased. It is a one stop shop for our business. It is nice to be able to do everything we need and have reports at the click of a button all through on location. The customer service is excellent and highly recommend if you are in the food industry!

    Pros

    I love how wonderful the customer service is. If there is ever an issue that are quick to remote in and find a solution. I like that I can see my reports throughout the day and see where our sales are at. I like that I can do payroll, daily and monthly reports all on the same system.

    Cons

    It will freeze up sometimes and when it does it can sometimes be a pain to reboot. Once again the customer service is fantastic so they make it super easy!

    Vendor response

    Thank you Natalie, for the kind review! Reach out to us if we can do anything else for you to help enable amazing guest experiences!
