Lost sales from slow support and legacy system downtime

A need for fast answers comes with the territory of operating a quick service restaurant, but Aubert Prévost, president at Koeppel Companies, found himself wasting time and money when his legacy point of sale system would periodically go dark. “Customer service with Oracle MICROS was a big issue for us. We spent countless hours on the phone. The whole system would be down and we couldn’t reboot, so when we faced major issues, we had a tremendous loss of sales.”

Same-day solutions with Lightspeed’s 24/7 support

With Lightspeed’s reliable system and 24/7 support, Prévost said they’ve been able to handle issues as they arise instead of opening support tickets and losing crucial transaction time. “I’m very grateful to have our Lightspeed agent. He’s assigned to us—which is something we would never get with MICROS. When I send him an email, he responds right away.”

Plans to expand with a dedicated team

With plans to expand, communication is key. Prévost said they’ve built a strong relationship with their assigned Lightspeed rep. They’re comfortable to seek advice, resources and support to pave the way for growth and ensure they’re operating efficiently. “We’ve been having weekly calls, touching base on what works, what doesn’t work and what we can tweak, etc. So we’ve had a really good channel of communication.”

“The Lightspeed team including the customer service specialist and developers have helped us build our business to what it is now with ease.”
