Overview

Lightspeed Retail is a comprehensive cloud-based POS that fits well in clothing boutiques, bike shops & pet shops. It can be used on a native iPad app, or alternatively on a PC or Mac desktop. It comes with a cloud-based back office with a strong reporting & stock control system which includes purchase ordering, transfers and stock look-up across different sites.

If you’re looking for an omnichannel solution, Lightspeed has their own ecommerce platform that integrates seamlessly with the POS for easy stock management across both channels. There are also integrations with 3rd party accounting systems, product catalogues for bike & pet stores as well as major ecommerce platforms.

Support is 24/7 phone & email and is included as standard with annual plans so there’s always somebody to help should you need it.

  • I wish we would have switched to Lightspeed sooner!

    Lightspeed Retail reviewed by Jeremy J

    Pros

    My absolute favorte thing Lightspeed Omnichannel does for our company is it keeps all our inventory correct online and inside our retail store! When we have online sales, all that data is brought into the Retail Side of the software and a new customer account is created. Even when a local, regular repeat customer makes a purchase online, the software is smart enough to match it up to the existing Lightspeed Account and just adds their sale to the list of sales they already had! Now, that is cool!

    Cons

    I know they are working on getting more eCom Support Technicians, so that is my only thing. Sometimes I have to wait on hold, but they have an accurate call back system too that is awesome! They call me back so I can move on with my day instead of being on hold! I've tested it many times, and each time they called me back and helped me out!

  • Perfect retail operating system for our small business

    Lightspeed Retail reviewed by Caroline C

    Pros

    Has the basic features and functionality that we need to run our small business with. Easy layout and navigation of the program.

    Cons

    Minor bugs and issues every so often but is usually resolved quickly if customer support is notified.

  • Couldn't Live Without It

    Lightspeed Retail reviewed by Stephen S

    Pros

    Ease of use, Access from anywhere, Access from any device, Dialed workflows for service department operations, Seamless inventory management, Stable, Reliable, Performant

    Cons

    Would really like to see tighter email integration. Ability to fire email templates base on system events. For example: send customer an email to let them know their workorder is completed when the workoder is marked as finished.

  • I was really impressed with the functionality and ease of use of the system.

    Lightspeed Retail reviewed by Tasnim T

    Pros

    It was a revolutionary tool for us in South Africa when we first started using the system in our restaurant in 2013. It eliminated errors in orders by the waitrons as orders were taken immediately at the table as opposed to the waitron memorising the order and punching it into the system. It also assisted in getting dishes to the patrons much faster as orders went directly to the kitchen with little delay. The stock functionality was also very useful to us.

    Cons

    Based in South Africa and the exchange rate being extremely volatile at the time, the monthly premium was sometimes quite expensive.

  • Its the best POS I have ever worked with

    Lightspeed Retail reviewed by Juan J

    Pros

    Is easy to use and it responds well and fast. It has great reports. For me it's a perfect solution for a small business that needs a POS

    Cons

    I can't really think of anything negative about this software but I do think it's not that easy to setup custom menus, but it's not that important cause it's something you rarely configure. What I would like it's that it let's you setup your own document number sequence and also more languages and better templates for documents. They are missing out on a big international market because of this, there are countries that have some regulations on the receipt number and also they need to add some specific things to their documents, required by their government.

  • Make checking out customers easy

    Lightspeed Retail reviewed by Constance C

    Pros

    This software allowed me to run reports which was what I really liked most. So many options for different reporting options.

    Cons

    Sometimes the checking out process took a little longer than I would have liked but overall I love lightspeed software.

  • Lightspeed Retail is one of the easiest POS systems that I've ever used!

    Lightspeed Retail reviewed by Brody B

    Pros

    I like that the software looks nice and it's very user friendly. Updates are made often to keep things getting better.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are features that are fairly industry-specific and can't be customized to work more efficiently for a specific industry.

  • REGRETFULL, and expensive because now I'm looking to change to something else

    Lightspeed Retail reviewed by Inacio I

    Pros

    IOS software, wanted to switch to iPads and mini iPads and also the idea of the cloud was interesting .

    Cons

    20 years in business with multiple locations and decided to try lightspeed at one of my restaurants because i consider myself an apple guy. Worst decision i ever made, for the most part i got the worst dealer ever, where they don't know what they are selling, most of the issues i have had to resolve myself by calling the company direct, and that sometimes is a challenge as well. A year and half later and the system is still not doing what my old system used to do, not able to print certain reports, most nights can't close out the credit cards( most times i pray that i will be able to do it ). if you own a restaurant this is not a system for you!!!!! simple retail I'm sure its fine, but busy restaurant its just to able to handle all the customization needed. RESTAURANTS PLEASE DO NOT USE LIGHTSPEED, YOU WILL REGRET IT IF YOU DO.
