"The other option that I love is Lavu Pilot, the app on my phone where I can see where my stores are at. If I am looking and see that one location went from $300 in sales to $600, I know that they are probably hammered and I need to get down there."

"We love Lavu. It has been easy to set up, easy to use. No paper, no scribble, the orders go right to the kitchen printer in a consistent easy to read format. The back end is terrific. You can view real time sales totals any time during the day to see where you stand. Reconciliation and closing are very easy.
I travel, and through the control panel, I can login and download the time clock data from anywhere. This solves huge problems for us when I am on the road because I can fully manage the business from anywhere. We think this is the direction of things for the future. This idea of having a high-cost, server-driven system is a thing of the past. If you are thinking of giving a POS system a try, I can’t think of a more cost effective solution. You owe it to yourself to give Lavu a try."
