    POS (or just register?) Suggestions & Insight Needed

    I have researched a few different POS programs and packages. I know this has been discussed at length, but I haven't seen anything recent. Unless I missed it (too many late nights). Would you please share the POS you have/prefer and a compelling reason why or why not? Right now, I am leaning towards CSM. I have also looked into Shelby, Halo, something my credit card guy is trying to sell me, and another small company.

    And I thought selecting an espresso machine was tough.

    Quick Books?

    Ann, have you looked at Quick books? I know they have a POS, and I am considering it. At the shop at church they use a POS by Microsoft, and I must say, The POS fits, but it doesnt mean Point of Sale

    I didn't even consider them. I don't know anything about it. Hmmm...

    It looks interesting, but can it do "to go" at any point in the order?

    Be careful of purchasing Intuit products. They have a hard-on for planned obsolescence and have no qualms with disabling features just to make you purchase a new copy.

    Also they recently did away with their upgrade program, citing it was more cost efficient to charge you the full price then have them carry an upgrade for 1/2 the cost of the retail version. They see it as only having one program instead of two.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Intuits Quickbooks. I have Quickbooks Pro 2004, pissed me off though when they decided my version was too old to support emailing estimates and invoices. So they disabled the feature and told me to buy a new copy of 2007 for $200.
    Have you ever walked through the aisle of your local grocer and smelled the death of a dying bean?

    Thanks for the warning.

    I'm surprised others haven't chimed in about what they use in their cafes.

    Taste

    Ann, I will more than likely use QB, as that will also be the accounting software that I use. If you google POS software and coffee, you will find a ton of options. They go from a couple of hundred dollars, to a couple of thousand. I want one that I can use a touch screen with, I am spoiled.

    Thanks, David... I have narrowed it down to a couple I have been looking into. I was curious what others thought, if they have used them or if they know of a reason not to use a certain one.

    OK, so where are all the usual suspects I expected to chime in? If you use a cash register and it works for you, let me know. Of course, everyone you talk to has "the best", but I want to make sure I make a good decision for my business and I could use some help from the more experienced.
