GREAT FUNCTIONING SOFTWARE FOR AN AFFORDABLE PRICE.

I HAVE A MORE ACCURATE INVENTORY WHICH MEANS THAT I HAVE LESS DOLLARS TIED UP IN INVENTORY. THE REPORTS ALLOW ME TO KEEP A CLOSER EYE ON MY SALES AND MARGINS IN COMPARISON TO LAST YEAR. I FEEL LIKE I HAVE A MUCH BETTER HANDLE ON THE BUSINESS THAN I DID WITH THE PREVIOUS SOFTWARE THAT I USED.

Pros

EASY TO SET UP, EASY TO LEARN AND USE, WHILE HAVING GOOD FUNCTIONALITY. SUPPORT HAS BEEN WONDERFUL. WE ARE ON OUR 3RD STORE WITH THIS SOFTWARE. IF I DIDN'T LOVE IT, I WOULDN'T HAVE BROUGHT IT INTO THE SECOND STORE. I WOULD RECOMMEND AND ACTUALLY, I HAVE RECOMMENDED THIS SOFTWARE. I LOVE THE INVENTORY GRAPH WHICH IS A QUICK LOOK AT MY SALES OF AN ITEM BY THE WEEK. THE SUGGESTED PO REPORT KEEPS ME AWARE OF THINGS THAT I NEED TO ORDER. I ALSO USE THE DIALS TO KEEP TRACK OF THINGS THAT I AM OVERSTOCKED WITH OR ARE NOT MOVING. REPORTS ARE GOOD.

Cons

THERE ARE A FEW REPORTS THAT I WOULD CHANGE IF I COULD TO MAKE THEM LESS PAGES AND EASIER TO USE. ALSO ENTERING ITEMS INTO THE "SALE LIST" COULD BE MADE EASIER AND LESS KEYSTROKES BUT IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT I USE EVERY DAY. I FIND THE COUPON DESIGNATION FIELD TO BE CUMBERSOME AT CHECKOUT. REALLY SLOWS DOWN THE TRANSACTION. WISH I COULD LOOK UP A LIST OF ITEMS BY DESCRIPTION AND PRINT IT.

We have used Paladin since 2013, helping us have the most profitable period in our history!

We use Paladin to assist with inventory replenishment, allowing us to have very few outs while maximizing our ROI. In addition, Paladin allows us to quickly and efficiently check our customers out at POS, enhancing customer satisfaction and keeping our personnel costs low. Intuitive and easy to learn, Paladin performs complex tasks with little effort.

Pros

Paladin is very easy to learn and use, making it a very productive package of useful tools to accomplish the goals and needs of our business. The replenishment module allows easy and accurate ordering based upon sales history, analyzing each item every time an order is being considered. The POS module is quick, very easy to learn and intuitive to use so personnel may easily and accurately check customers out. Paladin operations are very simple and quick, saving us time and effort so we can concentrate on assisting our customers. Updates are frequent and automatic, not requiring intervention on our end.

Cons

I look forward to even more multi-store capability that would make Paladin even more usable. Not much to say that qualifies as a CON. It's not for those who want a complicated system that they constantly have to tweak.

Easiest transition we have ever made. It really was so simple that "a caveman" really could do this!

Simple & Heavy Duty! A rare combination, i know, but with Paladin you can run your business, not stay on the phone with looking for answers and not getting them. It WORKS, and we use our system a lot. You will find companies telling you they can save you money get a better deal. Do not waste your time. You will be sorry. This software allows us to move into different areas and go back to where we were at "the same place without having to reopen a filed". This has been great. Many things like this you do not fully understand until you use the feature of stumble on to it. It still has areas i am sure we have not used. Customer Support at Paladin has answers to software question, when, which rarely they come up. This company is there for YOUR COMPANY. Do not wait until you lose business. Call PALADIN TODAY and move ahead!

Pros

Customer support in fantastic. Cost is a little more, but you get your monies worth.
Simple & Heavy Duty. Very, very rarely do we have "lockups or down stations".
These people have answers to your questions. They WILL CALL YOU BACK, but most of the time this is not necessary.

We have been using Paladin POS for almost 10 years. We have watched it grow to become even better.

Quick to train employees because it is so user friendly. Quicker ordering process. Everyone at Paladin has been great to work with.

Pros

I find the software very easy to learn and use.
Can be customized for our ordering process: inventory can be set as ...seasonal, limit quantities/set minimums and max on stock, ratio items. This makes suggested orders easier to do a quick review to speed up the process of our weekly orders.
End of day cash out is simple to read to do our deposit.
And gross profit reports are broken down by department.

Cons

Putting in items on a sale list could be a little quicker, but that feature we don't use to often. It does print a nice listing of the items for posting reference.

A lot of bang for the buck.

Makes it easy to run my business.

Pros

I like that it not only has a simplified front end, for less technical users, but that it also lets you export and import the database to work on it, offline. We like to do export the inventory file to make mass changes and then we import it back in after we've made a backup and have done whatever it was we needed to do.

Cons

I wish reports were more configurable instead of having to make everything a special request. I wish there were more inventory and margin troubleshooting reports that approached the capability of Margin Master.

Paladin has been a great partner to work with.

They can not be quantified. Paladin does a great job and they have developed an excellent product.

Pros

The software is easy to use, they are very friendly, and if there is a problem they get it fixed immediately. It is intuitive to use and almost anything you need for a report is available at a few clicks of a button.

Cons

There isn't a whole lot of things I don't like. One thing that comes to mind is it is difficult to data mine my own data. You can pull up tons of values by the day, but it would be very useful if it could be done by the day for the entire month at a click of a button instead of going through each day individually. However, this probably isn't a feature demanded by very many customers.

Our experience in converting to our new Paladin has been very positive.

Pros

Ease of learning and use.
All Paladin personnel have been very professional and yet also understand that a pos conversion is extremely stressful for our entire store's staff.

Cons

Would like a calendar on a page of daily sales figures for quick comparison against previous years.
This would enable our staff to quickly so how they have done in sales versus previous figures, sort of like a daily score for them to track. Yes, we can go through REPORTS portion to get these daily comparisons but our previous pos software allowed staff to click and see a calendar of each days sales all on one page for the entire month and to toggle to previous year or previous months.
Seems trivial but since we switched, our staff doesn't do this.
If this is the only negative I can come up with,
think of how much we love this new Paladin point of sale software! :-)

Best Hardware Store POS Software

We saved more than half on our monthly software maintenance expenses when we initiated Paladin POS and that is a lot of savings over three years. The customer service is excellent and their online tutorials and help files are idea.

Pros

The folks at Paladin made it really easy for us to transition from our old, clunky, multi-site software to a single site POS, which is what we really needed for our small mom and pop hardware store.

Cons

We have been using this software for more than 3 years now, and I haven't found a thing I don't like.

Quoting features make me miss Bms.

Pros

Easy to train employees, email invoices, integrate credit cards, track purchases and inventory. We are very happy with in the POS side of this system.

Cons

The main thing everyone using this system complains about is not being able to add in a item once you realize you made a mistake and you need to put a certain product with a like item or add a note for the customer. We were told when we purchased the system that they would continually update issue's. So far, we just learn to live with them.

Seamless, easy, I forget its actually there.

My sanity and approximately 8 hours of productivity per week. That is roughly how much time I had to waste per week being on hold with Epicor and trying to implement their updates. Many of those hours were spent after hours.

Pros

the updates are uniform , automatic and well communicated. We really don't even have to train new employees. It is so intuitive that they just watch for a few minutes and get going

Cons

At times features have been delayed due to Ace bowing down to Epicor. The credit card and gift card transactions at times are bumpy.

paladin review

They are great until you need customer service. Downloading is hard if you don't belong to ace or another group that is big.

Pros

This software is easy to use and easy to teach your employees. -

Cons

Great until your server goes down, then wait and wait and you can't help your customers because everything is on your server. 3 times in 11 years. Every time it is at least 1 hour to 1 1/1 hour wait. What to do with those customers, well that is your problem. Paladin is supposedly doing everything they can.
