A Fantastic System for all Retailers, big and small

Reviewed on 08/06/2020

From the initial Sales manager, to the Implementation Manager.... all staff were fantastic, enthusiastic and more than capable of handling any questions/issues I had.

Pros

The easy to use system means my staff picked it up quickly.
The detailed Back of House reporting is a managers dream.

Cons

The only thing I've seen missing is an ability to sell an item via weight ($$/per kg), but it's minor. Our previous system never had this either so we're well placed to get around it. Would be great in the future.

Reasons for Choosing Retail Express

MYOB was great..... in the 90's/early 00's. We needed a POS software program that was more up to date with the current technology we use. It's allowed us to have a second register again without much effort at all.

Reasons for Switching to Retail Express

1. Staff all have retail experience.2. Your [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has extensive retail history.3. Easy to use program with heaps of features.

The Overall Experience has been great very easy to transition . The On-boarding Program for Training was Great and the Access to Resources Fantastic. The Implementation Manager and other Points of Contact were all great to deal with.

Pros

Modern Cloud based system that has all the Reporting Requirements needed but all the Functionality of a Modern System in a Age of Technology Advancement . It seems as though it has been designed for this Purpose not the " that's something we are going to develop in the Future attitude" that other Systems seem to have.

Cons

At this stage I believe it is still the Honeymoon Period so just " Training Training Training" to get the Most out what we can Do with Retail Express

Alternatives Considered

Vend

Reasons for Choosing Retail Express

The Server and POS Systems we were using were very powerful and great for reporting . But was very dated and had no cloud based functionality and there was no bridge to be able to set up an online presence.

Reasons for Switching to Retail Express

Seems like Retail Express was the best option providing all the Power in Reporting and great Cloud based Functionality and Performance with a very sleek modern styling . Best Option Hands Down.

We have found that the lead up to going Live and the learning process has been very well supported by the Implementation Team. The tutorials are extremely helpful and very comprehensive. The responses to our emails are always very informative and the telephone conferences with an Australian based expert is ideal.

Pros

Retail Express is easy to use and integrates well across our online platform and accounting software

Cons

It would be very helpful if the accounting utilised both Cash and Accrual, not just Accrual.

Excellent service, quick responses to queries, very helpful support. Updates are provided via overnight uploads done automatically with no downtime to your system. New update information is provided in detail via email. They respond well to customer suggestions and are constantly improving the system.

Pros

The implementation of this software is fantastic. A team of experts is available to help you transfer your database of stock, suppliers and customers with ease. Retail Express has a comprehensive knowledge database including video tutorials and instructions which all staff can access. The software is friendly, easy to use and navigate with email and internet integration.

Cons

Special customer orders are tricky to handle. We are yet to understand how to order/manage customer orders and are currently doing this through the lay by option which is difficult unless you have one staff member managing this are (IE: you can over order stock). Back orders are a little cumbersome but can be adapted to suit your business needs. Overall though the positives of this system outweigh the small negatives.
