Pros

When I have spoken to a tech they have been excellent in understanding my question and providing a solution. At times working outside the box to create the best result with the conditions present.

TD

Todd D.

Overall we are happy with performance and support from LightSpeed. It's reliable and with the small amount of problems we have we are pleased.

CR

Chrysie R.

We love how easy this was to set up. It does not require buying $20,000 worth of equipment like our first POS system did back in 2008.

Pros

Price look up and price change is easy. This product is really good and affordable, I already have 3 stores, I am using same Product for My all business.

AP

Andy P.

The integration between QuickBooks POS and QuickBooks itself is, as one should expect, outstanding. Both programs work exceptionally well together and make accounting very streamlined.

KH

Kevin H.

This software is full-featured and really does a great job of keeping track of everything going on in your store. From inventory to sales, the information is there and easy to access.

KM

Kevin M.

Cons

This POS system is terrible for retail shops doing anything more than a standard sale. It's unintuitive, confusing, easy to make errors and very frustrating.

JN

Jenny N.

Limited options for payment processing, having to go with a non integrated payment was frustrating, and we were also limited with payment processing options for our eCommerce site.

AL

Annie L.

It’s extremely frustrating and not user friendly at all. In fact, I think the whole system is deeply flawed and unworkable.

JN

Jenny N.

Cons

It regularly freezes up and I have to back out of they system and restart the program which is embarrassing and unprofessional when ringing up customers. Beware and do not purchase this version.

I have had nothing but problems. The first day we set it up there was an error and there continues to be same error message even though i have spent numerous hours on phone with customer service.

LM

Lisa M.

Sometimes the shortcuts are not obvious, so I end up entering wrong numbers in wrong places. It is a little too quick for me.
