Pros: We like that the software is intuitive and has clean design. We like being able to arrange our products in categories ourselves, ability to sell items by singles or by weight, being able to track products sold etc.

Cons: We would like to have more control over receipt printing. Since we do a lot of deliveries, we would want to be able to set the font larger for the customer address and the quantity of the products, also being able to print double receipts right away would be great - one for the customer and one for the delivery driver (right now we have to look up the last transaction and reprint, which is at least 4 steps) We also would like to be able to access older transactions from the POS system - many of our customers want to look up what they ordered last season, or two seasons ago and to do that we have to go through a very long process in back office right now - it's requires going to "results", then "POS transactions" setting the dates manually (no easy option for 1 or multiple years), then searching for customer name, and clicking "line items" for each transaction we want to check. Aside from being a long process, I also don't find that the names for these actions fit how we think of them when we are looking them up. Also merging customer history would be nice - sometimes we accidentally create double or triple customer accounts and it would be nice to be able to combine them.

Overall: Overall it has been a great experience - we went from writing paper slips for every transaction and entering each one manually into Quickbooks to just generating a couple of reports each day in the back office and entering those. It has been wonderful to have saved customer information in the system and not having to rewrite their address again. This is saving us a lot of time and our customers are impressed with our contemporary POS systems since we're a small family business and they don't expect us to be tech-savvy.

Pros: POS software is something that you use in real time so it is essential that you be able to fix problems quickly. Their customer service is very good - they almost always pick up at once and they are always able to tell you what to do.

Cons: This is a multi-use system. As a restaurant, we had to get used to some features that are more for general retail, although it does contain things like table assignment and so forth.

Overall: This is a very affordable all-in-one system that lets us track sales, track employee hours and performance, and process credit cards. It does what it is supposed to do quite well. However, like any software, it takes some getting used to, and it is only after a few weeks that you really get comfortable with it. We live in an area where our internet keeps going down, and this system will continue to function even with the internet down. One important note for people in a similar situation is that you should not use the recommended configuration if your internet is shaky. (Their customer service helped us wit this.) They recommend a secure hard wire from the main printer to the internet modem. When the internet goes down, that interrupts communication back to the ipad, and the printer and cash drawer are not functional. Instead, as their person advised us, we use Bluetooth for that connection, and that way the iPad always is connected to the printer and the cash drawer. A minor hassle occurs sometimes when the internet goes down and devices pick up different floating IP addresses, in which case you have to delete existing connections and reconnect the new ones. I believe you can avoid this by using fixed IP addresses, but am not sure how to do that. These are pretty minor glitches once you get used to them.

Pros: I liked how easy it was to use. Easy to set up, user friendly. In the beginning when i needed help and had questions and suggetions the call center reps knew what they were doing and how to help.

Cons: In the last year or two they switched the call center to India. Since I have been using NCRSilver since 2015 I can solve most of my own questions, but when something comes up and I have to call in it is not a simple question anymore, and the employees that are now contracted to solve these issues know less about the system then I do. They seem to be reading from a script. While they are very nice it is frustrating because they cannot answer the question and it has to be put in queue and they have to get back to me. Seems like when that happens the person getting back to me just tells me what I already know. It's useless. I am going to be looking for a new software for my POS system.

Overall: Overall I used to be very happy with NCR silver. The price has crept up over time. They raised the price once and said I now had "concierage" service, but no one seems to be able to explan to me what that meansand they are not nearly as responsive with customer service as they used to be. I have complex inventory questions and cannot get an answer. When I call in (which I rarely have to do now) my issue is complex and the reps that answer are inexperienced and just tell me what I already know. They don't understand what I am asking because they don't use the system themselves.

Pros: The back office, inventory management, and customer tracking is terrific. Any system can fulfill the basic need of helping you ring up a sale, but Silver offers features that I didn't know I needed until I had them. Computing sales tax for state filing, locating past customer purchases, super useful features.

Cons: I'd like to be able to add devices without additional fees. I guess I don't understand why having a second device changes anything with regard to the costs incurred. I had a copy of the app on my phone purely as a backup in case something happened to my tablet but realized it was costing me every month for something that I wasn't using.

When wifi is having problems, I wish there would be a way to cache those transactions offline for processing when wifi is connected again. As it stands, I end up using the old carbon copy forms to take and impression and running the transaction later.

Overall: Overall I've been very pleased. I think it's obvious that NCR has taken it's decades of experience working with registers and retailers, fulfilling their needs, and applied it to the Silver app. It isn't the cheapest option on the market but it's way more reliable than any windows PC based POS. I'm not worried about viruses and windows errors or even brief power outages disrupting my business. If I have a wifi connection, I'm in business.

Pros: I like that I can program in the specifics of the items that I sell. We carry several thousand sku's and I can program each barcode of each variation of each product. I also like that there are reports that are valuable to my business, such as sales reports and time clock reports.

Cons: There are limitations to the reporting that I need for my business. There is no way to show what quantity and dollar amount of inventory I have on hand during any given period.

With our industry, I need to know monthly inventory totals on hand, both quantity and dollar amount. In addition, there is no shrinkage tracking for damaged, shopworn, or missing items.

Overall: I have't experienced any "problems" with NCR Silver. I would however like to know more about what the program is capable of because I don't believe I am utilizing all of the options to the best of their ability.

Pros: I like that it's super easy to train new hires on the POS and as I a manager I love that I can access so much information in the back office so long as I have access to a computer/laptop.

Cons: There are just a few things that I wish we could change, but a lot of the software updates eventually address a lot of them. Like any software out there, there are glitches that happen but they're minor so it's not a deal breaker. Customer service is a hit or miss. Most times friendly, but a lot of times it just gets sent to a different department because they can't figure it out, which takes time and follow ups.

Overall: Overall, I feel like you get a lot for your money and the ease of training new staff on the POS is greatly appreciated. The back office reports are great and help me keep track of sales and trends.

Pros: Ease of use. Programming is simple with back office. POS is very user friendly.

Cons: Certain features need to be added to accommodate other businesses like salons. Tip feature needs to allow you to code the tip to specific employees for one example.

Needs feature to not allow cashiers to look in recall history at other employees tips. This has been an issue for us.

Would be nice if under customer info you can add multiple contact numbers like cell and home.

We are in the pet industry and it would also be nice to have a customizable customer tab, so we can add pet name and breed or pets DOB etc. under customer tab.

Certain glitches I reported keep repeating. Tech support needs better resolution and faster respond time.

Overall: Overall NCR has been great for our business. As I mentioned above there are just a few things I wish could be added and or corrected.

Pros: We really did not like anything about the solftware. It was very difficlut to operate and there are many issues that NCR is not fixing. The multiple steps to complete a customer transaction is too long. They also do not have enough employees where I have wasted large amount of time waiting for their reps.

Cons: When we call NCR as the merchant to assist on failures of the software program, they do not respond immediately. Their phone system states, if you want to wait for the next avaiable representative press #2 on the phone. This message is repeated almost every 10 seconds. This is very difficult and discouraging.... Of course I want to wait for a representative... Do I have a choice????

Overall: They are an awful company. Their support system is a disaster. I don't know how many times I called NCR Silver for support and get a recording "hello we are experiencing an extremely high call volume. We will get back to you..." IF they get back to you it's hours later when customers have already left because we could not complete our transaction.

When my system was first set up, it was set up improperly based upon their support set up. After it was up and running it caused many delays where we could not input customers information and finalize the sale. So often, we received an error message "that item already exists and must create a new ticket" We call NCR Silver and was advised to proceed in an incorrect manner where the issues were never resolved. AFTER 3 YEARS OF THIS NONSENSE, It took my representative to resolve the issue after numerous hours on the telephone.

After all this, I asked for a partial credit to my account as they were responsible for the horrible software program. First, a manager would not even talk to me and flat out refused any credit. Then I asked for her manager. He did not even reply back to me.

This company is supposed to be a publicly traded company. Their program is horrible and customer support is equal par. HORRIBLE!!!! Ger professional NCR and the managers need to start getting involved with a customer instead of acting like they are holier than thou.....

Recommendations to other buyers: Get a real software program where customer do not have to lose business.

Vendor Response

by NCR Silver on April 28, 2017

We apologize for the NCR Silver experience not meeting your expectations. Not sure what happened with the "item already exists" issue, but it should never take that long for a problem to get resolved. Thanks for pointing it out to us.

As with any call center, sometimes reps get busy. That is why our award-winning customer support team also offers text, chat and email support. A text for example can solve simple issues substantially quicker. We also, by far, have the most extensive customer support team out of any cloud POS provider and offer live 24/7 support in addition to free set up, monthly menu maintenance, training and more. It's truly a comprehensive service.

As for transaction speeds, the UI in version 4.0 is extremely fast and it vastly streamlined an already quick customer checkout experience.

We have sent your comments to our customer care department, which will be reviewing it.

Pros: The software is easy to use for both employer (inputting information, printing reports, etc.) and employee (operating daily transactions).

Cons: The system only keeps transaction data for 13 months. While it is easy to understand that not keeping a lot of information will help the system run more efficiently, there are times when it would be an asset to be able to pull a customer's previous sale no matter how long ago it was.

Overall: The system and software itself is good. It does what I need it to do and it does it efficiently and easily. Their customer service, however, is not always so good.

Pros: It is very easy to use the menu at the POS. The back office is very user friendly as well and can be accessed from anywhere on any device.

Cons: The problems we have had with this software are mostly with the scale integration. The software does not fully support all the scale features we would like so we have had to work around those things. We had issues with the small scale and NCR Silver Quick Service. However, once we switched to NCR Silver Restaurant Pro and the GRS-60 scale we have had much more success.

Overall: My overally experience has improved once we got the right equipment for our store. I can always reach a customer service rep when needed. I think that the price for the equipment and monthly service is fair.

Pros: Transactions, and reporting, are very easy to use. Reporting is excellent.

Cons: There is zero inventory functionality. You can add inventory, but as a retailer I need to be able to track my inventory to monitor when, and what, I need to order. Silver does not offer such a feature. This is a common complaint amongst other retailers that use Silver that I frequent with my personal business.

Cons: Customer database. It isn't easy to send emails to customers with the marketing tool. There is no course break. When I enter multiple courses the system does not have a button for a line break.

Web sales don't connect to my system. When I asked if system could tell me what my best selling item was I was told no.

Overall: It gives me some information I never had with a cash register.

Pros: NCR is very easy to use, both at the iPad and in the back office on the computer.

Cons: Because it's geared towards shops and cafes, sometimes it doesn't do or have exactly the feature I want, but it's pretty easy to figure out how to make it work.

Overall: Overall, it was very easy to get started with NCR and it's always been easy to get help when I need it. Usually, the help section of the back office answers my questions for me.

Pros: The system is pretty east to use. I figured it out by myself with little help from NCR.

Cons: The overall experience with customer service is the problem. We actually switched and we are still paying for our NCR program. It is solely because of the service. I guess you guys would rather have reviews like this than to make it right. When it comes to a point that a small business like ours would rather pay and not use your product I think it is time to look at yourselves.

Overall: Product is Ok. Sometimes takes hours to get someone on the phone to resolve an issue

Pros: I like the simplicity of the system. Using an iPad is convenient and doesn't take up much room on our counter and it's portable. I also like the option of paying on a month to month basis, not being tied to a long contract.

Cons: The reporting, especially for the sales related inventory portion, is not as in-depth as I'd like. I would like to be able to pull a report of the items sold by vendor name as well as be able to look at a specific item and know it's detailed sales history.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you have a good idea of what kinds of things you're looking for in a system- reporting features, special features (i.e. do you want to use layaway, do you sell items on consignment). Know how much you're able to spend on equipment, definitely use the trial feature, and be realistic about whether you think it will work for your specific business.

Cons: Overall software is very basic and fine for someone who's looking for a simple plug and play solution for a business similar to a coffee shop. NCR Silver offers no intgrations to Shopify or other major sites.

Overall: Customer service has gotten worse of the last few years and most have no knowledge of the product. NCR Silver and NCR Counterpoint should be merged but within NCR neither business unit has any clue what the other does for customers.

Comments: Horrible company stay far far away

Pros: The sales staff is very well trained at making their system & staff seem competent. While the reality is you are basically on your own with a mob of indifferent outsourced support reps who could care less about their jobs.

Cons: Reports are broken, support is unavailable 99% of the time, estimated call back times for messages from our experience were 3-7 days for a standard issue, their staff asks you for extensive notes when creating issue tickets yet somehow other support members will call back with no idea what the problem is beyond the basic description. No chain of command so when a lazy support rep hangs up on you after being on hold for 30 min you cant even submit a complaint.

Comments: I love everything about NCR Silver except more features such as layaway or special orders would be nice. In today's economy customers don't always have the immediate funds to purchase higher end items and without a layaway feature it's very hard to meet their needs.

Pros: I love the ease of stocking in new merchandise. It is the easiest system I have ever used when it comes to that.

Cons: The lack of layaway or house account options.

Recommendations to other buyers: For a new business, if you are selling products directly off your shelf, you won't find a better system. It makes keeping up with inventory a breeze. The assistance it offers for scheduling and payroll is wonderful.

Comments: I don't like that they say 24 hour customer service and live chat. I cannot tell you how many times they don't answer the text help line they brag about, NOR do they offer 24 hour Live Chat. Further, the system doesn't even do things like calculate over time. And everytime I call for help I don't always get anyone who knows how to actually help. I will say also if you aren't too experienced with computers they talk down to you and get over the phone visibly irritated with you. I would not recommend this system just yet for what they charge per month

Pros: Not big upfront costs like if you have a hard wired system.

Cons: There's a lot you cannot do VS a hard wired system and the customer service is lacking along with their tech knowledge on how to help you

Comments: The system is not what I understood it to be when the salesperson came and brought the demo. For one, she told me repeatedly that the demo didn't have the feature, but my system would be able to perform the functions I needed. It does not. The scanner has no screen and can only receive or count inventory while you have the iPad (your register) with you. Which means my pallets of orders have to wait for after hours to be received. That is, when the system will allow me to receive at all. The newest problem is that scanning an item crashes the app. I have been waiting for 3 hours now to have someone call me back because customer service only knows how to tell you to restart your iPad. If that doesn't work, you're out of luck. My last issue, 2 days ago, took over 24 hours to get a simple answer. My bank recommended this system for my retail business. I regret every moment since I agreed to try it.

Pros: It is easy to use...when it is working. The price point was appealing, but you get what you pay for.

Cons: Customer service does not know how to help and escalating to a supervisor takes hours and even days.

No initiative to fix the problem. No apology for setting up the loyalty program wrong and creating a mess. You will spend hours setting up and fixing all the mistakes these ppl make.

Pros: I like the Idea and the cost of the loyalty program, but other than that the service and supports is a joke

Cons: The customer service is a joke at best. Do not use NCR. I will be looking elsewhere in the future. Save yourself some time.

Pros: POS system seemed easy to use and get the hang of. Adding inventory was simple and creating the main POS screen was a quick process.

Cons: Lied about e-commerce capability, no account services or layaway. When asked to for reduced payout of contract they will not budge and are just looking to get people in a contract and get paid. Even after buying additional items as an additional wasted expense that cannot be returned.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you not only ask to make sure the system is capable of what you want. Go through everything in trials before buying into the cheaper year term contract. My suggestion is pay the little extra to be able to cancel at any time because most likely you will.
