Pros

Ive used this to help my aunt with her store, we've used the trial version but didnt continue after. Epos has a great customer support but my aunt wasnt able to continue due to wanting to convert back to her old system.

Cons

I would recommend but if you are a person that isnt technology up to date it may pose a challenge. They do give support but you still need to be patient or hire someone that knows how to follow the tutorials.

I loved that it was so easy to set up and once I got into the nuts and bolts of everything it actually made it easier to use.

I think the biggest reason I left ePos Now is the customer service, you have to pay for support even for a simple question.

More from Eposnow. They say they have called me several times. Technology does not lie. I have only one cell phone and there are no missed calls on my phone from any number anywhere.
Beware of EposNow which should be renamed EposNever.

Pros

Did not get a chance to use as they shipped me a defective product

Cons

Did not work on arrival - waste of time. Was sent a defective product - did not have a chance to try out.

Customer Support

Pros

The system is easy to use. I would love to have continued to use it....if they stood by what that tell you when you are purchasing the product and provide customer support, as they indicated.

Cons

Do yourself a favor....DO NOT PURCHASE AN EPOS SYSTEM. They DO NOT stand by what they tell you, when you are purchasing their equipment. Their support after one year is HORIBLE. If you refuse to buy their customer support plan, they tell you that they provide email support, which is a lie. They told me desktops have a 3 yr warranty on all equipment. Now, they are saying it only had a 1 yr warranty and we have to pay for a warranty, to have anything replaced now. I have created several tickets and never heard a word back or got the problem resolved. Today (Sunday at 2:00 CST) our desktop was down (which is ironic since our warranty supposibly just expired on the desktop). We had customers in our store and I needed our desktop up to check out customers. We received an error message saying the desktop could not be found, it has been moved or deleted. We called EPOS. It went to U.K. They refused to help because we did not purchase the 24/7 customer support service and said to call the US support line on Monday. Needless to say, we will be shopping for another POS system that stands by their product and customer service!

This software provides very good for generating insights to make informed business decisions. It’s cloud-based but also enables offline till operations until you are back online, then it synchronizes.

Upload of stock in bulk is challenging & laborious. You have to purchase another software from epos to enable bulk upload of new stock.

I literally do not know what I would do without EposNow, I would recommend them to anyone and have done in the past! We had a problem with our cashdrawer and it was replaced the following day. I've recently got very involved with going deeper into stock levels and master products and am very impressed with everything I can do!

Pros

Insights into sales, stock, customer loyalty all on dashboard and easy to read.
There is so much I can do in the back office, I'm still learning new things 2 years on and am still very impressed with what I am able to do!
Support are brilliant, always very friendly and helpful.
There is a feature vote where you can submit any suggestions for the system and users vote on features they would like to see.
The apps that integrate are very useful and there is something for everything you could think of!
I can access the back office from anywhere, I love this, it means I can work from home and keep up to date with sales.

Cons

Support do take a while to answer your call, although I have only noticed this recently.
Their stationary (till rolls etc can seem a little pricey) but you aren't bound to buy from them.

Great feature rich POS, and good value for money. We have managed to setup everything as required for our Dessert Shop using Eposnow system. The customer service was amazing and our implementation manager worked with us to ensure all of our questions were answered throughout the initial setup.

Cons

I still have a lot to explore on the Back Office to implement stock level controls, but I would recommend EposNow to anyone.

Pros

Excellent experience migrating from an old system to this brand new system for our cricket club. The help in the implementation phase was really invaluable and they took their time to understand our current practices and provided better resolution rather than just trying to copy what we’d done before. I just also say that the tech support and ‘live chat’ has been excellent in getting quick answers to little niggles rather than submitting endless tech support tickets.

The software is easy to use and I like being able to access my information on my phone from anywhere that I am. The email dashboards that you can automatically email to yourself are also very good, especially yesterday’s sales and last weeks sales.

Cons

A member of staff is dyslexic and struggles with the colours. We would like the ability to change the colours so that it is easier to distinguish different products.

We currently keep track of 700 members in an excel sheet and would like to find a way to manage multiple member types in different categories, and allocate each category the same price automatically through the software.

Pros

I spent a lot of time researching POS systems before opening my cafe next year and I finally settled on Epos Now due to a good mix of price and functionalities. During the first phase they walked me through the system and company and made sure I was taken care of through all stages of my signing up process, thank you! The company offers 30 days free training when you purchase the software and I was lucky enough to get allocated to one of the rep. Besides being a bubbly personality and always in a good mood (which is not so easy to find in general) she was extremely patient with me asking the same questions over and over again and she explained the software's main functionalities with clarity and confidence. In just a few sessions we set up my whole menu on the system and the way it will appear on the till so all I have left to do now is plug in the hardware before opening and I'm good to go! Based on the service received so far I would definitely recommend Epos Now.

Pros

I purchased this POS system back in June in anticipation of opening my convenience store. There wa a delay in the start of my business I was not able to setup my system and implement my training in the original time frame allotted. When I was finally able to setup, which was months later, when I contacted EPOS they were beyond helpful. The license that I have does not come with phone support, but the tech team has went above and beyond to help me get the setup over the phone regardless. I love the interface of the software and the versatility that it provides. I am truly enjoying using it and really like ‘guide me’ and the App Store.

Cons

Sometimes it is difficult to get through to a technican and I do not always receive a response to tickets that I raise.

None. I was not able to use it due to poor setup on eposnow setup team. The UK Team seems to be a little more helpful but the US branch.

Cons

Their Customer Service is terrible. They will not keep appointments, never return any support ticket requests, and never call back when they say they will. I purchased this 2 weeks ago and it is still not up and running. I emphasized how important it was to get up and running before the 2nd quarter and that message went in one ear and out the other. I can not tell you how the program operates as mine does not work. According to them, `there seems to be something wrong with your profile. [Your problem] has been escalated to the senior tech team.

I WISH I COULD GIVE 0 STARS!!!! HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! After 3 weeks of dealing with incompetence I was sent a new printer WITHOUT the cords!!! Seriously?!?!?! And when I want to speak to a manager, they tell me they are too busy with other calls-so there are that many unhappy people that I have to wait in line to speak with someone in charge? That's not a good sign. Just started with them and SERIOUSLY UNHAPPY!!!
