talech Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about talech's features:

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

Excellent Platform, Easily Manageable

2016-11-15

And the ease of use of Talech, the customizability, and the adaptability of the team running the program from the Talech side are splendid.

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.

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.

Talech Software Review

2016-11-15

We have been using Talech for over a year now and it's been overall a good experience. There are some things I would like to be different but overall it has been a good experience.

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

I don't like the credit card reader- too difficult for customers to read- tiny print and customers don't know where to slide the card and if it should be up or down.

Overall Talech is an easy to use POS system. However, the rates are too expensive for us to keep up with and customer care can't always explain why something can't be fixed or changed.

The Credit Card rates are too high and cost the company a lot of money.
