Janice on KOUNTA POS Software Review - Read this Before You Buy
I absolutely agree with this review. What Kounta is, is a prettily packaged product that disguises many poorly put-together features. It performs the basic functions well, but its not great if you want a point of sale that can scale with your restaurant. In fact, based on personal experience, I feel that Kounta actually prohibits your restaurant;s growth once it gets to a certain stage.

We never got to a point where our issues were resolved. One correction would cause another problem.

poslavu has released their product way before it’s time. Untested in a real scenario, they are using real customers that are stupid enough to buy it as beta testers, and the sales department is pushing this as the next great thing that ISN’T. 24 hour customer service is a joke, “no operators are available, please email your questions” at 10PM when we are the busiest.

Happy to have your comments re POS Lavu. I have very pleased you are having a positive experience. Would you like to put in a "plug" for your restaurant and tell us the restaurant name and location? That way people local to you could visit and see POS Lavu in action otherwise some readers may believe your comments are from POS Lavu themselves.
