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

The customer service is great, the features keep improving and the sales process is great. Gift cards, set up, customer records- all awesome.

KM

Katherine M.

Ease of use and the ability to teach a new cashier quickly. Compound report excellent so we can quickly see our on hand, sales over a certain period, what's on order and what we need to order.

RN

Ray N.

Good sales and monthly reports. Great customer service-they are always willing to help.

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

However, I think my biggest dislike is the inability to get a beep when a negative item is scanned and we're not looking at the screen.

Not being able to adjust the spacing on a label is a pain especially when the label is cut off.

I really wish this worked on a mac. I hate that I have to use PC's at work when I use macs everywhere else.

Pros

It is extremely easy to use with functionality that works for my type of business and probably any retail business

Retail Edge has been a great system for our stores.

Pros

We like the simplicity and cost effectiveness of Retail Edge. It is also very robust. We have never lost a transaction over the past years.

Cons

The report interface is not the best. We end up exporting our raw data and using other reporting software.

Retail Edge is great for my business!

Reviewed a year ago

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was great helping set up the software, training me on how to enter inventory and use it for everyday use. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was also great along the way answering all my questions and helped us order our gift cards, which we love! The technical support team has been amazing and is always eager to help! They even find problems before you do. Everyone I have come in...

Pros

Retail Edge is so easy to use! The checkout process is straightforward and hard to make a mistake. The integration with Shopify is great for my business because I have the same inventory instore and online. The reporting is amazing to help analyze my business. The gift cards Retail Edge offers are nice to offer to customers and easy to use when checking out. The purchase order section is great for retail because you can easily see what hasn't come in and what you should cancel. I also like that the Retail Edge team is constantly updating the software and staying up to date so you don't have to. I have used most features that Retail Edge offers and I love most of them!

Cons

I love so much about this software but if I had to change anything it would be to make the security feature easier to use. I want to be able to lock the sales manager so employees can not see how much money is made, which you can do, but every time I lock it, I mess something else up. Also, one thing I have run into with the online integration is when people buy gift cards in store and want to use them online and vice versa. If there was some way to make gift cards able to use both instore and online, that would be awesome! So, just making those things easier would be so helpful and make this software perfect for my business!

Pros

Great customer service. Easy to use functions. I like the retail island, I can check my sales remotely.

Cons

When looking up a customer, if the customer isn't in the system you need to start over again. ie; What is your name...my name is Philips...you look up Philips and he's not there...it should then say do you want to make Philips a customer, rather than making us retype Philips...which is an easy last name .

Depth of data; real time data.

Pros

Retail Edge provides excellent communication between back-of-house preparation and store-front pricing. The ability to customize labels, SKUs, and clerk screens are essential.

Cons

I'd like to see reports as downloadable files instead of pdfs. Otherwise, it has been a useful and worthwhile investment.

Retail Edge is so easy to set up and use, and if I ever have a problem, the reps are super helpful!

Reviewed 5 years ago

I can track my stock, issue Gift Certificates...thinking about it, we have 2 locations and we don't utilize a way to be able to track gift certificate sales over both registers. It would be nice to be able to accept our other location's GCs without having to go in and adjust the sales later. I don't know if that can be done or not.

Pros

I like the interface between Retail Edge and my credit card system. I don't have to enter the amount twice, which prevents errors in charge amounts.

Cons

When an old record is deleted, sometimes you can't re-use the stock number or it warns of a duplicate entry. If I deleted it, it shouldn't be there at all!
