I would be interested to hear software recommendations from anyone providing bookkeeping & BAS Agent services to small cafes currently using pos software.

Hi Cheryl,

Are you looking for Browser based programs.  If yes, & for a price on the lower scale, then Vend or Kounta.

I use Xero for my small cafe customer, but they don't have a POS system - just use a register. My bar client uses Revel POS system (I can't remember the pricing), which uses an iPad linked to the register and EFPTOS machine and it works well for them.

I'm looking for time & attendance and HR (ie. award interpretation) add-ons for Xero for both clients - currently looking at KeyPass and Tanda - don't suppose anyone has used either of these?

We have a restaurant client that uses Revel for POS and Deputy for rostering and timesheets. Revel sales and receipt data integrates with Xero and Deputy timesheets can be exported into Xero with Award interpretation happening along the way, if the pay items are set up in Xero with the correct syntax. It might take you a while to get your head around it, but it's pretty awesome stuff.

Hi Carmen, I'd like to help you and because I am also a restaurant owner, I would prefer to use POS system on iPad, which is much lower cost and more convenient as well. Maybe Web-based software like Vend soft or others are also okay, but I choose Magestore POS ipad for my little iPad device. Don't know if it would help you or not, please tell me.

Hi Bruce

Our experiences with Revel since that post have been less than satisfactory. It really does not integrate well with Xero and has lots of problems. We have also terminated our services with this client in the interim due to a change in management that wasn't beneficial for the continuation of the quality of service we aim to deliver, so we don't currently have a need to develop our understanding of POS for the restaurant industry. This client had fixed terminals for sales and wasn't really keen on iPads. I guess it depends very much on the restaurant.

Kind Regards
Carmen

And I also used Magento 2 One step checkout extension, Magento 2 Gift Card extension and Magento 2 Affiliate extension to help my restaurant, too.
