    Employees were very nice, prompt and knowledgeable about their products.
    It was very easy to understand the online presentation and make a choice for purchase.

    Cons

    So far I am 100% happy with the product and customer service. The equipment came nicely packet and was all brand new, and the employees have been helpful and friendly every time we speak!

    Pros

    The customer service, while not 24 support, is extremely responsive. I have felt like I am part of my POS team instead of just an end user of a purchased product. The software is reliable and flexible.

    Cons

    The lack of 24 hour support has been difficult at times, but very rarely.

    Pros

    The web dashboard is easy to follow and provides just the right amount of information and tools that I need (changing menu and prices, employees, locations).

    Cons

    A recent update resolved the issues I had. Before, there wasn't an offline mode for processing transactions.

    There's not much I like about Instore.

    Cons

    There are all kinds of glitches with the software in addition to simple common functions not included that make using this product difficult and provide a less satisfying customer experience, which in turn affects sales, repeat business, and tips for the staff.

    Pros

    The Instore team is responsive to our needs and problems. Many times when I have had an issue, I have called to find them in the final stages of an update to resolve that very problem. They have a robust system that is very easy to use for our coffee shop. Menu updates are simple and can be pushed out immediately. Employee timesheets are kept automatically. They are worth every penny of our subscription, and I especially appreciate the use of third party hardware. We saved literally thousands of dollars in hardware alone. Bottom line: Instore is clean, easy to operate, easy to update, and simple. It's one less thing to consume my very limited time.

    Cons

    Some of the finer points of the software are a little clunky, such as item modifier management, and some of the backend is less user-friendly than desired. But again, I've been informed that a major backend overhaul is in the works to address these very issues. As far as complaints about the Vendor themselves, I have none!
