Pros: Easiest Software Ive Used so far!
Fast and Simple! Less for me to mess up lol! jk Ive Used a bunch of different software solutions for different applications, and this one seems to be the fastest, and user friendly one yet. especially if you have employees that you don't want going into specific areas, you have the ab slitty to block them from those places. I also like how maneuverable it is. I have 2 point of sales. one for retail, one for online sales. They both communicate to za central server located in the office. It works id say with a 99.59% success rate! and the other 4.61% is usually solves very quickly! Thank You.

Cons: If you need to open another register, it does not share the same database for your labels, or pictures. Even if you have a central server. However, its nothing compared to what you get for the money!

Overall: Ive already recomended it to friends and colleges

I use this software for a fireworks stand twice a year. I highly recommend this software.

Pros: I have used this software since June of 2016. I run a fireworks stand twice a year. This software keeps up with my sales, profit, and sales tax. I also know exactly how much inventory I have on hand. It is easy to enter the inventory and easy to adjust inventory. I use a scanner for most items, but I have buttons set up for hard-to-scan items. It is easy to see how much business that I have done at any time of the day. The software is very user friendly. The reports are easy to run. I can see my sales for one day, a month, the year, or any time frame that I choose. I can also see the difference between the cost of the items sold and the sales to give me an idea of my profit.

I am very satisfied with this product. I have also contacted Alexandria a couple of times. They have always replied promptly and given me the information or help that I needed.

Overall: - A record keeping system that works very well for a low price.
- A cash register with an optical scanner for quick and easy transactions.
- Quick access to daily and weekly sales.
- Quick access to profit margin.
- Inventory tally at any time.

I have had very good experiences with the POS Maid software

Pros: Easy use, easy setup, easy install. Great customer service. Has clocking system for employees, This makes it easy to work with payroll.

Cons: Would like to save ticket or put them on hold. Needs some work arround for creating combos. Should be able to have more than one sale price per item and give these discounts to clients.

Overall: Fast and easy setup. Payroll is easy because all employee use the time clock. I can manage permissions per user.

A little difficult to use all of it's features but we've had it for years and hardly have issues

Pros: It prints well. It is very quick and easy to load with paper. It doesn't overuse paper. Always prints correctly.

Cons: Outdated so that is why we need to get our update! Sometimes it will get stuck and not know when to print but I think it's just old.

Pros: I love the fact it has inventory and easily allows me use it to keep track of what I've got, what I've used when I make a sale. Everything is pretty easy to use, and easy to set up.

Cons: I don't need the time clock or employee records, so for me it's the thing I don't use and the only thing I can say bad about it...and even then it's only because my shop doesn't need it.

Its Easy to use.

Pros: Software is easy to use, keeps track of all sales and expenses, and stays current with all PCI compliance.

Cons: Support has a response time of about 2 to 6 hours, via email. The software still has some growing to do, like to allow more lines of text to be written on a receipt for promotion purposes.

Pros: Allows me to keep better track of my sales and inventory. I like that I use the time function to help with keeping track of my labor.

Pros: POS MAID is just what i was looking for they have thought of everything. The bar-code and coupon making, text and email sending all included. There is even general accounting But best of all is the price.

Cons: To many steps but will be OK with a touch screen. And I wish there was a quicker way to add the items in the inventory. The sale screen could have a little more color to make it easier to see. And from what i know so far there is no method for a tablet or cell

Overall: There are a lot of systems out there but this is the best for the money and it combines 4 systems together POS, Bar-Code, Email / Text, and accounting

Pros: Purchased pos software for a new startup business in a auto parts and repair business. I had some problems in the beginning but with a few emails it works like a dream. Still have a few kinks to work out but not worried. This has got to be the best customer support that I have ever had with a software program. Usually they sell it to you and forget you or it takes forever to get any messages back. I would buy from and would recommend to anybody. Thanks Alexandria Computors for making my life easier.

Pros: I found Restaurant Maid on Ebay @ $99 per station. We thought it was a bargain to set up the POS in our new restaurant.

Cons: When check is printed, server has to ask customer to write in tip BEFORE it is rung up for payment! Horrific customer service. Alexandria's recommended "Mercury Payment Services" was absolutely DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!! We replaced the system with a $16,000 Aloha system that was flawless from day one.

Overall: none

So far this product has been the best. Its so user friendly

Pros: User friend. Not complicated as others out there. Not expensive but gets the job done right. Good reporting. Tracking employee attendance. Allows you to import excel data.

Cons: Maybe I'm yet to learn that feature but even though I like the Layaway feature a lot, I still have not been able to figure of how to create a layaway payment with at least 4 different payment installment.

Overall: This software improved my business sales

Pros: POSMaid is perfect for a small business or Craft Show use. it is affordable and very functional. Allows for all monetary transactions and keeps tally. It is perfect for Entry level use. The inventory control is more than I expected.

Cons: So far I have not found any issues that I could not resolve. I did have a question about printing, but an email to the support team resolved this.

Overall: As a small business, it is hard to afford all that you need. POS software i one of those things that you think you can do without. Not true! It is truly an integral part. But affording it is another. POSMaid is the right product for any small business!

Pros: Easy to use! Right price! I love how employees can choose photos of the items for quick and easy selections.

Cons: Reports. I need more details to prove the cash drawer at the end of a shift. Other than that, it is great.
