Excellent Platform, Easily Manageable

2016-11-15

The overall experience has been very positive, and the platform is excellent for managing the menu list, structure, and for culling information for reporting from a distance.

Pros

Flexible, easy to understand, intuitive, easy to modify, easy to pull reports, manageable from a distance, continuously improving and updating.

Cons

Inability to have a common pool of inventory for different categories to pull from with respect to inventory management; new beta interfaces have splendid reporting capacity but need to become the standard rather than the tested exception.

Christi Whatley

Good system, but has its limitations.

2016-11-15

However, the purchase order feature is worthless. POs do not include the item number, which make them useless to vendors.

Pros

Inventory tracking and reports

Cons

Purchase orders do not include item numbers

I am sad to leave this review but it is the truth

2016-11-05

After fighting tooth & nail for several months to get a general yearly tax report and all the other reporting issues I am sad to say not all of the issues have been resolved.

Pros

I love some of the reports provided.

Cons

I am unhappy with the inventory management, I would like date as to when inventory originally came in and when additional stock was added.

Great POS system with top notch customer service support

I have been happy with the program and really pleased with the tech support!

Pros

It keeps up with product inventory levels and gives decent reports.

Since I am not familiar with any other POS systems I can’t comment on the cons other than it is geared to restaurants and merchandise retail and not necessarily wineries....

Not fully baked for a full service restaurant

2017-06-27

Can order from the table.

Pros

I like that the software utilizes iPads at table side, enabling orders to get entered and executed more rapidly than with a stationary POS.

Cons

We were told to use house accounts, which did not work correctly for tax reasons, then told to use discounts, which we are now using.

talech Review

2019-09-08

Talech has made it ten times easier to track inventory...that was our number one time killer.

Pros

Its very user friendly. Super easy to set up and all I had to do was send them a spreadsheet and they entered most of my info for me.

Cons

When in talech.com I wish there were more custom reports.
