Instore is an iPad point of sale (POS) solution for restaurants, bars and clubs, bakeries, coffee shops, retail stores, and other small-to-midsize business, which offers a range of tools for barcode scanning, payment processing, sales analytics, customer reward management, online ordering, labor management, receipt and gift card customization, business insights, and more.
Instore offers optional barcode scanning for inventory receiving and product sales. Inventory can be tracked, adjusted, and reported on, with users able to set target quantity levels and view when these are not met. Instore’s payment system allows users to accept any payment type from anywhere around the store. The offline processing feature enables receipt of payments without any internet connection, and users can open tabs for customers with stored card details to process payments when tabs are ready to be closed. Customized gift cards can be created and used to pay for purchases.
Labor management tools give the user deep insights into employees and enable the automation of timekeeping, optimization of staffing levels, employee tracking and access restrictions. Instore’s customer rewards can be used to reward clients for their spend without slowing the checkout line, using credit cards or customer names, email addresses or phone numbers for identification. Users can control how many points are offered per dollar for standard and gift card spending.
Nice folks. If not for the fact that we're tied in to the gift cards that we've sold, we would probably experiment with different POS options. We're not convinced that other apps are better, we suspect that they all have pluses and minuses. But it would be nice to have the freedom to explore a bit more.
Generally speaking, it does what we need it to do in a way that makes sense.
We often go months without thinking about it or worrying about it.
The team at Instore genuinely cares, and while they don't listen to all of our feedback, we can see that our feedback has led to improvement.
I don't think the back end is robust enough. Sometimes it's impossible to download reports because the server times out before it processes and packages the reports.
We've never felt that the "end of day" functionality made much sense.
We'd like more flexibility with how it interacts with individual staff members.
Sometimes changes are made without us being informed that don't feel like improvements.
It would be nice if there were more flexibility in settings about how the app is set up.
For the money, its hard to beat Instore as a great POS system for our cigar bar.
The user interface of Instore is very simple to use. The way it presents categories and then items in those categories allows for fast input of orders for customers. The recently added Tab feature allows us to store credit card numbers without having to hold customers cards for tabs they want to run. The ability to add employee payroll cost, as well as COGS allows you to quickly see what your true profit for the day was after each shift closing.
The reporting system isn't as robust as I'd like, however the basic reporting does provide you with access to most items. I'd like to see more details around breakdown of sales per hour and day, etc.
THANKS FOR ADDING TABS!!!!!
I like that usually when I call for assistance, I get a response within an hour. I also appreciate the ease of adjusting items through the back end of things. The ability to control tax on each item has also been vital to being able to use the system for my business.
The system isn't as intuitive as it could be. I'd also like to see more specifics in terms of back end reporting.
The folks behind this software know what they do well and understand their limitations. They do not "over sell" and provide great support.
Very Easy to Learn!
Great Customer Service!
They have a nice size install base with "real world reference cases".
Not ready for Multi-Unit use quite yet but close. Would like to see a Kitchen Video Display solution for restaurants.
At times when updates have occurred some information has been lost or repositioned
Its'simicity yet able to handle just about everything. Easy to make adjustments when necessary and communication with tech support is fast!
The lack of control we have over the rewards program, points, etc. I want to be able to handle customer issues immediately
