A quick review by sean himself…
A good friend of mine owns a small shop in NYC and sought my opinion on a new POS system. A lot of folks have been talking about LightSpeed recently so I immediately floated it as an idea. He responded with, “Great! Show me how to set it up.” That’s when I realized I had never actually used it before, nor could I attest as to whether or not it was the solution he was looking for.
So being the merchant processing savvy person that I am, I got a trial copy of the software and fiddled with it for about an hour, when I decided it was just as simple, fluid, and appropriate as we both hoped it would be. I wouldn’t call myself an expert on the software now but I am confident enough to provide an introduction on what it can do.
Below is a 23 minute step-by-step video that explains the software as if you had just purchased it today. It differs from the tutorials on LightSpeed’s own website because I stripped out the demo bundled features they use to show it off, none of which would have any relevance to your actual business. I don’t normally do reviews so hopefully you can deal with my style of instruction.

There are so many restaurants to choose from that customers don’t have to bother trying a place if someone told them the food is horrible and the service sucks. Unsatisfied customers are inevitable, but how you handle them can [...]
