TouchBistro Restaurant POS Software


 

TouchBistro is an iPad-based point of sale (POS) solution for restaurants of all types. Specifically designed to meet the unique needs of the restaurant industry, TouchBistro comes complete with food service specific features and advanced management capabilities.

For fine dining and traditional restaurants, staff have the ability to bring the POS system to each table, to allow patrons to check out. The mobile functionality of the POS allows staff to bring a register directly to patrons instead of requiring them to leave their table to pay bills or place orders. 

TouchBistro can manage split-checks and parties of various sizes. Receipts can be printed, if desired, or signed on screen and emailed.

Detailed sales reports within the system can help provide management with insight into which items are selling the best. To help cope with rushes, the POS can be removed from the counter, and move with your staff down the line.

Cons

modifier are slow to process specially in coffee shop
-not good for extended menu really hard to navigate true large bakery menu
-there is no way to input iteam in the back office ! Sorry there is no back office! so if you need to do change thing on the fly well you have to wait for and ipad to get free!
-Changing menu pricing and making the menu on touchbistro is really long since everything as to be inputted on an ipad !
-modifier are again very complicated and not intuitive what so ever!
-make sure your ipad are not on auto update since if the update without you knowing your system will stop working
-they sell you and mac mini saying you only need the display for set up! well that not true! you need it for all the update to !

Love everything about this product. Cuts down on kitchen errors because you are not trying to decipher wait staff writing. Tracks inventory so it stops orders of 86'd food. Makes billing so easy, splitting bills, splitting items. I really can't say enough good things about Touch Bistro. Would never have a restaurant again without it.

Cons

The only thing I don't like, and maybe I'm just not doing something right, but, I can't seem to delete ex-employees.

I would definitely recommend TouchBistro to anyone who is looking for a POS system.

Pros

I like the overall system, but what really stood out for me was the customer service and how helpful they were throughout the entire process.

Cons

I have not noticed any downside. Everything was smooth. If I could pick one very small thing, it would be great to have a support team locally to be able to come into site but with the customer service team being reachable and the process being simple, I don’t think it’s an issue.

Terrible Customer Service

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

If you are an IT wizard and do not require much training this may be the system for you. My fear is that when something does go wrong when I go live that getting a hold of customer service will be impossible.

Pros

The system seems much more user friendly than your typical cumbersome POS systems like Aloha or Micros if you can get it setup.

Cons

Customer service is absolutely the worst. They require a 3 week lead time for all training and install appointments, I am building a restaurant from ground up and it is very difficult to know 3 weeks out where construction will be. The only department that responds promptly is sales, no other department puts any priority on follow ups. I asked to speak to someone in executive management and was told they are unavailable. So I reached out to the CEO Alex Barrotti through LinkedIn (seems this is the only way to contact anyone in executive management) and I received some condescending reply about how customer service works comparing install and training appointments to taking reservations for my restaurant. Clearly the poor customer service culture comes from the top.

Pros

Easy to use very functional for my bar/Tavern. Menu set up was a little confusing but once we got it all went smooth. Good customer service when I have called with a question or a problem since.

Cons

Training needs to be free. I bought your product the least you can do is teach me how to use it fully.- Until I am confident I know how to use it. I got 2 hours and had to "buy" an additional hour doing it all over the phone and setting it up by myself. Not cool!!! You might want to consider that. HOWEVER. Customer rep who trained me was excellent and caring. So on a personal level that was excellent.

Hi Anthony,

Thanks for taking the time out to leave the review!

So happy to hear that you received exceptional service and feel confident using the product.

The monthly subscription fee covers the software; which includes upgrades, bug fixes and new feature launches.

If we didn't charge for the additional training we would have to charge for the upgrades, bug fixes and new features like our competitors do.

We appreciate your understanding and I apologize for the inconvenience.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Overall, the product is so far very stable and easy to set up. It always takes a time to get acclimated with new systems, but this one is pretty intuitive and they have some good videos/tutorials to get the staff up to speed. Having used it for a couple weeks now, there are a few features that are hard to work around. One is the fact that you can't have an inclusive tax on select items (alcohol). You can set up an inclusive tax, but it is either for ALL of the items or none. Big oversight as the majority of bars/restaurants that I've ever been to (mine included) have the tax included in the alcoholic drinks, but not on the food. Another major issue is you can not add a seat to a tab. A major feature I liked was the ability to preauthorize cards/tabs, but this is often nullified by the fact that I can't add a seat to a tab, and the workaround that I would normally do (attach a card to a table) is not an option either. One of these things is not good, the fact that I can do neither is a real pain.

Pros

Cost
Stability

Cons

Can't add seats to tabs or assign a card to a table.
Only offers global inclusive tax

Advice to Others

It's good for the price, just be aware of its' limitations.

Easy to use, difficult to get help

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

TouchBistro is relatively easy to use for someone who has little to no experience with POS. It has a lot more functionality than something like Square, but it still utilizes the familiar iOS user interface and makes training staff/customers easy. Additionally, set up is easy, as it uses Apple Airports and a mac computer, which are all easy to purchase and use. However, if you want to get more technical, TB is not for you. I work in a large restaurant, and we wanted to build a better wifi network for customers and our office as well as POS. As part of this, we installed new access points to provide a strong signal for a very large room. When we wanted to set up TB to work off of the new APs, their customer support refused to provide assistance, and will only work with you if you're using Apple gear. Not only that but the support was slow to respond throughout our time using TB and often didn't provide helpful advice. Usually, the errors we'd experience would correct themselves after TB's engineers released an update (i.e. after a new version of iOS would come out), but we'd lose a lot of money in the process, with system outages and bugs. Overall, I would recommend you either stick with the tried and true simple solution (square) or spend the money and go up to one of the traditional POS systems. If you're set on a more advanced tablet system, I would recommend Toast over TouchBistro.

Pros

-Easy to use (for the most part)
-Easy to setup
-Replaceable hardware (Apple products)
-More features than many similar competitors

Cons

-Poor customer support
-No setup options
-Some functions difficult to access/not intuitive
-Bugs/issues when iOS updates - unreliable

Advice to Others

Definitely, check out Toast, they more effectively combine traditional POS options with a tablet system. Also, I'd definitely advise going with a cloud-based system if you decide not to go with tablets. Check out Brink for a good example (that's who my company switched to).

Pros

TouchBistro has been an amazing tool for our cafe. I love the ease of use, how easily we are able to get an overview of the cafe at any one time, along with performance, financial reporting, and all the rest. We keep discovering new features that allow us to be more and more accurate and efficient behind the counter. Support is also always really helpful and available whenever we need them!

Cons

Some of the features seem weirdly incomplete, like reporting having some types of reports available and not others. Also, we have had to source a secondary POS system to use for our retail inventory, as despite having the capability for things like barcode scanning, there is no way to quickly or easily update our inventory--with a stocklist of over 2000 items, having to create each item individually and update them manually is too much of a headache to bother with.

Ease of use. Valuable synthesis of information from sales and labor hours.

Pros

Ease of use (changing menu items, viewing labor hours, etc is very easily done).
It's easy for employees to use the basic functions of this program.

Cons

It freezes up frequently and requires that the app is closed and re-opened before it will work again. There's also an annoying delay after orders are sent through, while they're printing in the kitchen, during which time nothing can be done. This only last a few seconds, but a few seconds is too much for a busy restaurant to have a delay every time an order is sent.

TouchBistro is central to our restaurant operation. Our servers are happy with it, and overall administration is easy and effective for our needs.

Pros

TouchBistro is very easy setup and use and is truly designed for restaurant use. The cloud reporting feature and customer support are also excellent.

Cons

The one downside for us is that you can't do any real administrative activity without disrupting service, so you have to do it on one of the iPads outside business hours.

We like that it is easy to input, change and delete. They covered everything! The setup was easy and they are very quick to help with any issues that arise.

Cons

we would like to see more custom features for the icons and it would be nice to change the size of the borders on the graphics. We have not yet found any real cons!

Pros

Very easy to use, very easy to make changes quickly. Set up and hardware set up is easy as well. I also feel it is great to have the mobile reporting

Cons

Reporting can be a little quirky, and programming inventory is time consuming. Compared to other systems for the money it's a great value

Easy table side ordering, easy menu setup and changes, good reporting system.

Pros

Fairly intuitive, easy to program and make changes quickly. Provides significant helpful reporting functions.

Cons

There are a few features we would like to see that currently do not exist but they are not major ones. We have offered suggestions to the company and expect to see some of those ideas in the future.

I is more efficient than a regular cash register and allows us to track our sales and tax instead of trying to calculate it after.

Pros

That it uses an existing IPad and can be stationary or mobile. Also it is great for tracking sales so that we can keep track of trending up and down of our menu items> It also helps use with ordering and inventory

Cons

That it doesnt include a rounding function for places that have phased out the penny. Sometimes the modifiers are a pain and could be better to add if you could choose all the menu items that could use the same modifier,

Having everything inside of 1 program
Ease of Use for staff to quickly learn
Ease of edits

Pros

Ease of use and includes most features needed to run a large 175 seat restaurant and bar. The features I would like to see developed have been given to the TB Team for consideration.

Cons

Not being able to access the program remotely. The reports are available on the Cloud but to remotely access and make changes to the program would be awesome. I understand they are working on this.

The ability for my front of house staff to serve customers quickly. We no.longer have a problem with them stacking tickets on the kitchen because they ring the orders in right there.

Pros

The functionality. Very easy to train new staff on the system even if they have never used a.POS system before.

Cons

That it does not close out the day automatically. We have to pay a manager to close down everyday to ensure it is done before the morning shift. The other systems we have used automatically closed down at a certain time.

Reports, labor, food, remote report etc.....

Pros

Everything makes sense, very user friendly. Servers and bartenders who have never worked with this system can pick up right away, little or no training.

Cons

It does not have the capability of putting in counts on menu items, i.e. starting the night with 8 fish and having the system do the countdown until it's gone.
