User Reviews of Lightspeed POS

Submitted on September 22nd, 2023 by Anonymous

We reviewed the system for our retail store and for the most part it was fine but when it came to the inventory and search feature, it was not in line with our business needs. We have 5,000 plus SKU’s and to have our cashiers search an item, they had to do so by description. We have building material/equipment that comes in various diameters and there is no way they would have been able to remember all of those variations for a search. There was not the option to search by part number.

We switched to ShopKeep because our previous system did not provide the basic inventory management, tracking and employee tools we need. We have been using it for about 5 years. I love that I can see how many muffins or matcha lattes I sold with ShopKeep’s mobile app.
