  1. We have been using Vectron POS systems in several branches for 4 years and are completely satisfied. If questions or difficulties arise, then the dealer is easy to reach and takes care of a quick solution or answer. For more than 1 year we have been using the marketing module bonVito for table reservations and vouchers in addition to the POS systems. Here, too, everything works very well. - from Frank McClure | 16. January 2020
  2. We have been using a Vectron POS system in our hotel for 6 months now. After a short time we bought 2 mobile devices. We are very satisfied. The installation went smoothly and the dealer is always available and can help us with any questions. We mainly decided for Vectron because so far we had only heard good things about the systems. - from Shoun Turgoose | 6. January 2020
  3. We have already bought the second Vectron POS system for our restaurant, the first one was bought already 12 years ago. We have a super service on site which you can also call late in the evening if something doesn't work, yet it was extremely rare. The most user-friendly POS system we ever had. Our restaurant has about 120 inside seats and 85 outside seats, as well as some guest rooms. Top product, I won't go away from it anymore. - from ChanGilgun | 12. December 2019
