Why ex-Clover retailers are falling in love with Lightspeed

Built-in inventory control

Unlike Clover, Lightspeed offers a complete inventory system integrated into the POS. Sell serialized items, create bundles and organize products with many variations.

Process special orders / layaways for free

With Clover, you can't offer this to your customers. Lightspeed lets you order products that aren't in stock and put them on hold, all for free.

Integrated omnichannel systems

Our system enables you to run your retail and online store from the same user-friendly interface (the way it should be). That means less work for you.

Customer-centric tools

Order special items for your customers and put them on hold, all for free. Offer services and repairs and more with easily-managed systems.

All the support, all the time

You shouldn't have to pay for support. With Lightspeed, you get free 24/7 phone, email and chat support built-in.

In-depth reporting

Pull detailed reports on profit, sales, customers, employees and anything else your POS touches. Clover can't tell you that much.

With our previous POS, it was just like a hamster wheel, just trying to get questions answered. We had simple questions like how do we delete this inventory or add this? We hardly ever got answers. It was a lot of trial and error on our part. Working with the Lightspeed team has been a lot more enjoyable. Just that has made the experience a lot better.

Why ex-Clover restaurateurs are falling in love with Lightspeed

A POS built for restaurants

Unlike Clover, Lightspeed offers a full suite of software that scales with your business so you don't have to rely on third-party platforms.

One-on-one onboarding to get you started

Lightspeed helps you get set up with your new system, for free. Clover doesn't.

Intuitive coursing and bill splitting

Easily manage the flow of checks and let your customers split the bill however they want.

Access your data wherever you are

Track your operations and log into your back office on the go—that's the power of the cloud.

Keep serving even when your internet is down

Lightspeed Restaurant uses blockchain technology to store and protect your check data, so your business keeps running smoothly even when you're offline.

Round-the-clock support

Unlike Clover, Lightspeed sticks with you every step of the way. Get free, 24/7 support over phone, email and chat.

I can look at the pub or at home to see what’s not selling quickly and what’s selling really quickly; it really helps me with my ordering.
