Pros

I love the app and gives me accounting on the go. Helps me track invoices and profits with ease.

The ease of use and reputation are by far the greatest part of this product. In addition to this, the range of potential integrations is fantastic.

RC

Ryan C.

Really easy to submit expenses, categorise them and check the progress of you submitted expense - super easy to do all from the app.

Pros

Love the software and so does our staff. Expansion options were a major consideration as we have more takeout locations opening so this was a winning solution for us.

Rex S.

What I liked about Toast was how easy the integration was for our management team and staff. I would highly recommend.

Toast is a very easy and user friendly way to order food for our office. I like how straightforward the steps are on the app to order.

Cons

There are no delivery notes/packing slips. They tout a "workaround" but be warned, it's exactly 10 extra clicks so it's really not an option if you need this feature.

FM

Fergus M.

Our main complaint is that Xero stopped doing payroll in 2018, so now you have to pay an additional fee to a payroll processor such as Gusto.

Craig F.

Changing accounting software from Xero is a horrible experience. They make it very difficult to pivot to other software.

CB

Chaz B.

Cons

I've been trying to set up online ordering for weeks now. It's been counting a lot of problems because of the basic lack of customer support.

AM

Andrew M.

The worst was the display screen and the use of it on the line.

Toast's NEW online ordering has a complicated drop down menu that causes guests to struggle.
