I just had a final conversation with this company. Processing my charges went fine, yet after a review with my acct exec I was promised reductions. No follow up after 6 months, switched processors. Still got charged fees for 4 months. No integrity.
Upserve makes a great, user friendly software with an easy dashboard to navigate! Their customer service has been so friendly and helpful too whenever we have any questions regarding their POS system and analytics.
I've worked at a restaurant that uses Upserve for a year now as a server and it has made my job so much easier! It was simple to learn and it's user friendly dashboard definitely sets it apart from other POS systems I have used in the past.
This company's tactics are the worst. Their sales teams, makes promises they cannot keep. Then their software has so many issues, and expect you to work around their mistakes and causes you more work! They cannot even process a simple refund same day! They charge you for services which are not completed! This company is Scam and very clear why change names frequently! Please do yourself and go with another company!
Received an invoice attached on December 5, 2017 saying we were we charged $25.00 for a "Verifone fee". We already are charged monthly for our service at $99.00. I called to inquire about the "new" fee. The rep said I was not the only one calling and that no one had been notified. He assured me that I would receive a call back letting me know why this fee was being charged. IT is also important to note we already have a Verifone account that we pay $40 a month for. I waited nine full business days and never received a call. I called back on December 19. 2017. Once again they could not answer my question. Our bill has been increased by 25% for a calendar year with no contact, information etc. I don't think this can actually be done or should be done. You are suppose to have permission to run a client's credit card for a charge correct? Thank you for your help with this issue.

Our company has Micros POS and I liked that Upserve ties everything together because it makes it easy to look in one spot for gathering of reviews and have a nice graphical representation of the sales as well. So far, I've never had any technical difficulties with Upserve.
In the incarnations between Swipely being bought up by Upserve and then acquiring or merging with Breadcrumb, it's hard to maintain and continue with staffing because things get moved around quite a bit. I'm used to that, but I would like to at least spend one season where I know the name of the person who’s handling my account and someone who knows something about my business. That would be advantageous.
But I'm very supportive, patient and understanding because I know what happens when there are acquisitions and expansion. It just took a little bit of pulling to get the support I needed. But when I got them, they were efficient. They have been very positive and very helpful. I've had a high level of responsiveness when I've had issues that have come up and I'm extremely happy with the reporting. I'm just frustrated that there's been a high turnover of account representative and I can't keep anyone longer.
I'm a season restaurant so I'm only open for five months in a year and I usually go through at least two reps so it's hard and I'm waiting again. I was not made aware that my previous account rep in May, John, left and I have a new account rep. I think it's incumbent on Upserve to reach out to their clients as opposed to me trying to shake down who my new account rep is. I would think that if you take over a position and you have 12 accounts, you would reach out to those accounts and say, “John is no longer with Upserve. I'm your new contact. I've done some research on your business and read through your case notes. I'm here if you need me. Thanks.” I'm still waiting for that.
At the beginning of 2016, I converted from MICROS to Aloha. I had looked very closely at Breadcrumb, but I'm out in Cape Cod which is quite remote and I don’t have a lot of tech support. So, although there were advantages to Breadcrumb, I felt that I needed a more robust system with actual individual who could literally drive out and troubleshoot if I needed it.
Additionally, I get invaluable information with their equipment. Prior to Upserve, I was paying for credit card processing to the tune of close to $30,000 a year and getting nothing for it. Now, I'm getting a wealth of information, on who we're selling to, what, where, why, and then when the restaurant is critical. I get a daily and weekly summary in an email which is fantastic because the reporting on Aloha can be clunky and tedious so I have to go in and pull out different reports. Plus, I like the way the information is delivered to me via Upserve. But it would be helpful if they could have 24/7 credit card lookup which is what I had with MICROS help desk. But still, I am very happy and I want to be happy. I'm not leaving but I hope the dust settles and they can get some consistency in staffing.
The Upserve equipment was easy to use and on the screen, there’s a credit card to swipe, easy to go, and no extra help lines they have to reach around in the system when you press the button. I find some of the parts of the report confusing sometimes like the productions that we have here. I feel like I don’t really see them reflected on the report and I'm not sure where they go. It could be an update thing because I’m pretty sure the software is capable of doing it. Also, I only use two pages out of a four and when I look through it, sometimes it doesn’t make sense. But it’s been a pleasant experience and it’s pretty essential to the establishment.
Our Director of Operations had used Upserve in another company prior to us taking that. We're using Aloha which we pretty much maintained because the entire group uses it and it makes it synergetic. Also, it's such a huge expense to do any kind of change and we're stuck with it. But their team is great and they have very good service. Whenever we had an issue like setting it up, they got it going. We're using the online software and we like everything about it. We like the amount of data it gives you to be able to check customers and follow discounts and it makes hedging up with daily report unnecessary. Upserve is awesome, it's running good and I highly recommend it.
We use Upserve's reporting system so that we can go in and check on our servers discounts and check averages, guest counts, etc. I like how detailed the reporting is. We're currently also doing our Loyalty Program through Upserve which we're trying to get to takeoff now. We just recently remodeled the program to try to get more people involved with it. But any interaction I've ever had with customer service representatives has always been a good one. They’ve been super helpful and I like that they’re easy to contact personally. So, any time that we have any issues we don’t wait days to hear back from them. They are very quick to get back to us with any concerns that we may have. We are very happy with our service. They are doing a great job and we are certainly satisfied here at the Winton Road Distillery. Overall, it's been a terrific experience for us.
