    It has transformed my business. At times, though, customer service lacks. Hard to get a hold of and rarely is there follow up, even when it is promised. The easy of use makes it easy to fix things yourself.

    Pros

    The ease of programming allows you to make changes on the fly.

    Cons

    It can be inflexible, especially some of the new features. Particularly the Tip Pool

    So far my experience has been very good. I really like to be able to search for items if I am unable to find the item I am looking for instead of having to look through multiple tabs. I also had a great experience calling customer service, they were very knowledgeable and friendly while helping talking me through how to solve my problem.

    Pros

    Very user friendly when adding or changing menu items for management use. Easy for servers to ring in orders and make notes on dishes to communicate with the kitchen.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of anything I don't like. It is much better than previous software that I have worked with.

    This is the easiest POS system to use I have ever encountered. It is super intuitive. The reports are very customizable. The refund procedure is super simple.

    Cons

    The Ipads require updates sometimes in the middle of the shift. It is also hard to keep them charging. We have had to replace multiple cords.

    Has allowed us better accuracy in entering orders and increased speed of service. I enjoy the ability to remotely track business in real time and make adjustments to labor as needed. Product mix report has been advantageous in developing new menu.

    Pros

    Very user friendly! Most user friendly system I’ve ever used. Easy for my employees who have never used a POS system to learn in a day.

    Cons

    Does not have the ability top track half hour sales.

    Pros

    Great for a restaurant. Features and functionality are exceptional and has way more than I thought I needed.

    Cons

    Very few cons. Recently they had a spike in users and this caused some crashes, but this has since been fixed and I have experienced no issues

    Overall the customer service is usually stellar/top-notch. The program is easy to use and to teach.

    Pros

    The program is easy to use and functional. Being able to open search for items on the menu is very nice. Easy to teach and it is nice being able to put recipes directly into the menu.

    Cons

    Creating menu items is a hassle if you're making multiple changes. It would be nice if you added some filter options for creating and editing the menus, employees, and labor options. Separating large checks and collecting payments needs work it is definitely one of the worst point of sale systems in that regard.

    Pros

    The software is definitely user friendly when using the back end. Unlike other programs that are difficult to access and to navigate. We are able to easily add categories when need be without any issues.

    Cons

    The only issue is when editing an employee's time it automatically makes its own changes while I am making mine. For instance- If an employee forgets to clock out the time will look like so: Clock in: 4:00 pm Clock out : 5:00 am - since it automatically clocks the employee out at 5:00 am the next day when I go to change it it changes the clock in time to whatever it thinks I am going to change it to when in actuality I am not changing the clock in time at all ONLY the clock out. It is difficult to explain without a visual. It just a quirky little glitch that happens.

    We can track sales and labor costs through Breadcrumb. We can add and archive items very easily.

    Pros

    Easy to learn and add items to our menu. Transition from no POS to a POS was super easy for all the staff and ourselves.

    Cons

    The software loads easy and can be accessed on my home tablet as well.

    We really enjoy all of the features Breadcrumb offers. When we first got the system, we were only using it to ring items in and take payment. We have configured it to now accurately give us our sales reports as well as clocking in our employees.

    Pros

    We really like how intuitive the system is. Staff training is really simple and menu set up is great.

    Cons

    The software updates typically happen at not-so-convenient times (like on a Friday at 4:00 in the middle of our happy hour rush).

    Pros

    The mobile app and reporting make immediate data easily accessible. The reports are presented simply & cleanly.

    Cons

    It's not very customizable. The software or the software developers, are unable/unwilling to adjust to varied needs of different types of restaurants. While this is likely the case for most POS systems, we've found that other software integrations we use are much more readily willing to adjust and make custom improvements that directly benefit our restaurant.

    We also found that the on boarding process lacked a bit of personalization. Had our contacts taken more time to discuss with us our needs and understand how we operate, it would have saved us a lot of time and effort in having to redo the way things were initially setup - especially in regards to the menu databases.

    Lastly, while this wont be an issue longterm, in our first year using Breadcrumb, it's frustrating that there's no way to import our previous years' data. Rather than being able to compare numbers year-over-year, we can only see week-over-week and are forced to fall back on our old tracking methods such as a separate spreadsheet in order to measure the bigger picture. What seems like it should be a simple data pull that would help us run much more efficiently was shut down by the support team who told us it was not doable.

    Quite good, but better integrations would allow me to get data across the various software pieces that I use. The system is super stable and reliable, so it's honestly hard to complain too much.

    Pros

    Easy to use and train FOH staff. Backend is intuitive and easy to use

    Cons

    Not quite perfectly setup for fine dining, and we don't have great printer control or ability to control how the kitchen chits look or are laid out. I'm still waiting for an promised integration with SevenRooms that hasn't happened.

    My favorite feature on Breadcrumb POS is open tab pre-authorizations. Removing the aspect of responsibility for a customer's credit card is a very underrated aspect of running a bar. Customers appreciate it and it just makes keeping tabs open a more favorable option for us as well as the customer.

    Cons

    Syncing across devices can be spotty at times, especially if the device is sleeping.
