This product is simply amazing, it is smooth running and doesn't slow down like other products I've used in the past, it has all the function my business needs, i use it for a retail clothing business and it works perfectly! don't let the pictures convince you it can only be used for a food industry! very easy to modify to company needs!

Just in the set-up process, but the graphical interface is great, and once the images are in, it is very easy to navigate.

Pros

Easy to set-up easy to use. Online interface for clients is going to be a huge seller for me!!

Cons

a little glitchy still.

Advice to Others

Great product. I think that once it is out of it's infancy it will be fantastic!!!

N/A

As a restaurant that focuses on local ingredients with constantly changing specials, the image option for ordering in Lavu is important for servers and cooks to be on the same page. When you have lots of brunch items as specials, sometimes everything looks the same under Hollandaise sauce!

Pros

Easy to split a check

Cons

Sometimes when we have bad weather the connectivity has issues. But that's not just the POS (cell phones, television, etc.) so you just need to be careful in those situations.

I've used some other types of POS' in the past (ex. Aloha) and this one was a lot easier to train on. Lavu also has helpful options like seeing how many hours you've worked in a pay period which is a nice function so you don't have to do it yourself!

Pros

photos for menu items, hourly pay review, can be multi lingual (helps with foreign tables)

Cons

sometimes it crashes but thankfully it usually saves your tables receipts

Our bistro started using Lavu before I arrived, and when I was training it was very helpful to be able to see pictures of dishes I was ringing in. While there are some printer issues sometimes, the interface is great (very straightforward). You can even send directions for delivery orders when taking an order over the phone!

Pros

The pictures are so handy for standard menu items. Obviously if we are running specials we don't have pictures of those items, but for those who are more visual this is very helpful. Also helps train new staff on what each plate looks like.

Cons

Sometimes there are a lot of connectivity issues, especially with multiple printers (kitchen/bar/etc.)

I like this system the only thing is the inventory input to determine how much we have left is a key factor we would love to see worked on or if is possible send me a video.

Very high praise for the technical software end as well and the customer support which tries to attend to all issues in a timely manner. The software is very powerful and efficient once you learn how to use it properly. The price was one of the biggest selling factors.

Likes Least

Nothing much to not like thus far! Some things did take some learning to use or at least had to make a call to figure out how to do things such as splitting checks, or processing credit cards. But once up and running everything works very well and discovering that I am trying to live up to this pos' .

Recommendations

Price is very appealing; love that this pos is spread by word of mouth more than by commercial and professional marketing or advertising routes - demonstrates the quality and confidence in the performance and power of the product, which no doubt speaks for itself when you learn to use it... and I myself am only using a fraction of its true capability but am working to use it as much to it's potential as possible. High praise for the customer technical support too who are very receptive and knowledgeable in finding solutions or giving answers to any questions and issues.

Our restaurant uses Lavu's product which has a very attractive and friendly/easy-to-use interface that amazes our customers. Lavu's WiFi based system increases workflow and efficiency and most certainly has the "WOW' factor. If you are looking to be ahead of curve, look no further than POSLavu!

To get the most out of this system you need very reliable and fast internet.

Lavu is a great POS system at an affordable price, systems like the one I have would have cost me double or triple of what I paid. Inventory, hourly sales, employee time, the list goes on and on of what it’s capable of doing Their team at Lavu are always improving on there operation system it almost seems monthly.

It would be nice if it were available on Android tablets.

Easy to use and make modifications to any menu. And the back office is unbelievable as well.

I have been a Lavu customer for over 16 months. The system is fantastic. We used to use Aloha. I have been able to cut my employee costs and increase customer satisfaction.

Likes Least

Not answering calls and having to wait for them to call back. While they did that very quickly for the most part, I sure do like when they answer. They have been working to make that happen.

Recommendations

By being able to use the iPod's, my servers don't have to leave the dining area. They are always with the customers, not running back and forth with notepad in hand, then back to the old POS computer. The customers always see our servers in dining area. They don't have to try and wave someone down when they finally walk through dining area. The system is very adaptable.
