G2 reviews:

"SpotOn support was a huge factor in making the switch because when you call, you speak to a human in minutes or sometimes less than a minute, and 9/10 times, your problem is solved very quickly so you can get back to running your restaurant. SpotOn support is always available, and when they say they will call you back, they actually do."

– Connor Perry, Tuscano's Italian Kitchen, Monroe, WA

"SpotOn is the first POS/BOH Management/Scheduling system that works seamlessly with our business model. It really frees up our management team to focus on the guest experience rather than hours of paperwork."

– Trey Dyer, President and CEO, Mesero Restaurant Group

"The success team has provided valuable insights on menu, pricing, and user experience for both the front and back of house. Additionally, the reporting was redesigned and allows us to monitor trends closely. I highly recommend SpotOn!"

– Paige Keil, Mangrove Mike’s Cafe

A Good System for the Money

"The sales and install team were extremely helpful. The onsite training was very well done."

Bill L., Owner, Restaurants - June 1, 2024

Customer Support Is Always Amazing

"I find all the tools I use to enhance my marketing campaigns to be fantastic. I begin by sending emails, and then we implement a reward program that people can enjoy through discounts. Additionally, we have tools that allow customers to make reservations online and a waiting list (which helps a lot on busy days). SpotOn offers numerous benefits, including integration with Doordash, Uber Eats, and other platforms for receiving online orders, e-gift cards, and much more."

Stands Out from Others

"SpotOn has allowed me to consolidate multiple processes into one manageable platform. I can run 90% of my financials off one program that has been tailored to my needs by the SpotOn crew. Its completely customizable dashboard allows you to have it your way. The ability to set reporting is also a huge plus. Once set up the way you want it, it becomes second nature, and its ease of use is superb."

Brian B., Food & Beverages

SpotOn is Exactly What Restaurants Need

"SpotOn is easy to teach, easy to use, and easy to customize on the fly for our daily changing business. After using another Restaurant POS system this one is what we should have started with. Wasted a ton of money with another vendor prior to finding SpotOn. This one integrates with my payroll company seamlessly. The online ordering platform used was ridiculously easy and provided a more polished seamless look for my company."

Brandy R., Restaurants

Premium Features and Unrivaled Transparency

"SpotOn continues to be an invaluable technology partner that listens well and proactively presents innovative solutions to drive our business forward. True, cloud POS with the flexibility to run on a myriad of different hardware devices. It just works. Low-maintenance and reliable even at high-volume restaurants. An innovative and evolving platform that adapts quickly to the changing needs of the restaurant industry."
