Simphony Review - Minor DKL Food Group

Overall the software is a decent POS software, the customisation ability is a good fit for our business with the ability to fluidly adjust our products and menu to maneuver our business into strong customer sentiment positions. Earlier versions were prone to bugs, however the later versions appear more streamlined and database resource utilisation is lighter than it used to be. Once knowledge base is established and internal support personnel skills are enhanced the support of the software is quite easy.

Pros

The software once configured and implemented is easy to use, it's heavily customisable, allowing the ability to adapt for changes within the business and products. The ability to update the software from the enterprise level out to all Properties\Workstations, is a convenient ability to have when managing a fleet of stores and POS terminals It ties into its own reporting system and the MyMicros App makes store sales checking a breeze

Cons

The software and the back end design is very complex, it takes a lot of training with skilled trainers in the Oracle business to build and maintain those skill sets. Cost can be quite expensive when starting out, when there is a sufficient retail footprint the pricing can be negotiated to competitive rates

Oracle = A great global partner

I have been happy with our experience with Simphony. They provide a great product

Pros

One stop shop. POS, purchasing and reporting. The software has great capabilities and covers all areas a hospitality business requires

Cons

Most adjustments to the program involve an additional purchase. Immediate support not often available

Reasons for choosing Simphony POS

Greater capabilites and were able to move with us on a global scale

Reasons for switching to Simphony POS

Bepoz did not have the all the reporting capabilities our organisation required and was not able to go forward with our global expansion.

What Happened to Micros? Oracle. Make a wise choice don't choose Simphony.

We used Micros Res 3700 and loved it had no choice but to make a switch as Oracle is not supporting Micros Res 3700 any longer. We choose Simphony because Micros Res 3700 had the best support, including live support. Micros had service was 24/7. It was a really bad choice. Oracle Simphony has basiclly no support, you call support, they issue a ticket or tell you that someone will be calling you back and you never hear back from anyone. There is no support live help desk . Since, Oracle purchased Micros, service and support has suffered greatly. They are always trying to upsell you to purchased 3rd party items, that they eluded where included in product during the original meetings. Micros NYC/Oracle is by far the worst software installers/developers that I have ever worked with. Make a wise choice, don’t choose Oracle Simphony.

Pros

The ease of menu updating and cusomtization.

Cons

There is no live support, no service, no support help desk; most times it takes days, weeks, even months to hear back from anyone. Since our installation in July, 2020, 3 months later and there are many unresolved issues, with the credit card readers, time clock, reports not balancing to each and many other among other things, that just don’t work.

Simphony

Pros

The software is amazing. It helps keep confusion down with online and dine in orders during covid. It also helps keep track of inventory.

Cons

The system is complex. It took some time to get set-up to the standards that the restaurant requires.

Simphony

effort put in on setting it up - worth it - architecture is good & functional. Never really had any down time - if internet down - all printers & KDS still work on the LAN. Have a good account manager too which helps!

Pros

Moved into teh cloud from Res to Simphony - was a great move for us - less spend on hardware, updates through icences /subscription to services. We integrate a lot through simphony with accounts, loyalty, takeaway/delievry platform, Gift certificates. Has great inventory mgt capabilities with theoreticals. We manage the one database across different concepts and countries pretty easily. Integretaed with payroll, Open table, Windcave - Tablets for servers. Real time updates pretty much on phone app. Kiosks integrated. It all works!

Cons

Sometimes support a little clunky, but we get there in the end.

Reasons for choosing Simphony POS

As a larger company - it had development of products pretty much nailed. Reliability & overall bang for buck .
