I like the fact that the POS station is portable, as well as modernized and easy teachable to new employees. I also like that receipts are attached to the system so you do not have to have separate boxes for the receipt paper. The payment processing feature is such a great future especially for business upgrading to the new chip readers!
I don't like that things such as the card readers are sold separately for first time buyers. By offering sold separately and as a bundle would be more effective.
I think that making this compatible with other financial software or minimizing the need for other software would definitely elevate this product.

I use ACME POS integrated to AccountMate software, and it is one of the best integrations I have ever worked with. The software is easy to setup and learn and is well-supported. It has so many features and customizations. It has great credit card processing and integrates to several Accounting Packages. I would recommend this POS to any company.
There is nothing negative I can say about the product or vendor.
Don't waste your time. I explored several other solutions and this was the most flexible and easy to learn.

We interface with AccountMate as the accounting back-end, and that's seamless to us. Another plus is that it even works remotely (when at, say, a trade show).
I can't think of anything I don't like. The product and vendor are both exactly what we need and reasonably priced.
If you're evaluating an external POS application then you need to look closely at two things:
1) Ease of integration with your accounting system; and
2) Ability to work when not connected (such as from a trade show), because sooner or later you WILL need to run it when not connected in realtime.
Acme excels in both areas.
