Review of Aldelo Point of Sale Software

I've worked with the Aldelo point of sale software back to when it was branded as NextPOS and QuickPOS so I thought that I should share some of my experiences with the program.

The Good:
  • Windows-based so no unique hardware requirements like Micro's has
  • Simple to learn and use
  • Flexible for different types of bars and food service related businesses
  • Very affordable
The OK:
  • Reasonable reporting and menu changing functions with proper training
  • Basic functions for pizza and delivery businesses
  • Does a good job of handling special functions like split checks, loyalty and discounting
  • Confusing support options
The Less than OK:
  • Can go too in depth when it comes to food cost
  • Limited ability to handle physical items (ie. gum and mints)
  • Unclear future
Summary:

I really enjoyed working with the Aldelo solution and customers have had positive results using the software. However, times are changing and it appears that the software is slowly being phased out in favor of the XERA POS solution which incorporates mobiles devices and similar newer technology.
