Nightly Tip Outs

We set up a system for nightly closers and jr. managers to use the software, and the GM audited their work every morning. Auditing was easy, and mistakes were rare. It's easier and faster than counting and redistributing cash and correcting mistakes is as easy as just distributing money a little differently the next night.

Pros

In an increasingly cashless society, this app allows you to continue tipping staff out nightly. It works great.

Cons

Once the money is out, it's gone. So don't make a mistake

Game Changer

From Sales to onboarding and daily use the experience was/is fluid and repeatable.

Pros

We don’t have to keep as much operating cash on hand in the restaurant.Payments to employee in near real time is a game changer for employee buy in.I have referred Kickfin to a similar establishment in a neighboring county.

Cons

Ease of search optionsThe online experience is website based and does not adjust to smaller screen display on computer, loose edit buttons outside the fold.No app. But bookmarking website to Home Screen on phone is a decent work around.

First time kickfin user

Pros

Once employees have been entered into the system, Kickfin is super easy to use. No issues with paying employees.

Cons

KickFin has a strange recharge system. Sometimes it takes days for money to hit the account. We have been noticing the lag in recharge happening more often. It's frustrating when the KickFin account doesn't have enough money but they've already taken the money from your business account. For someone who uses KickFin and also does staff payroll, I wish there was an easier way to pull employee wages. The reports show the day to day reporting, rather than a grand total. KickFin pulls it's own pay periods rather than me allowing to choose my dates. I have to go through an add each employees tips for each day of the pay period. Not a huge issue but a little annoying.

Kick Fin is a Cash Saver

We are very happy that we started using Kick Fin for processing tips.

Pros

In the restaurant industry credit cards have become the predominate method of payment. The tips that are reported on the credit cards most often exceed the cash receipts causing our cash to fall negative. Using Kick Fin allows us to track our cash with out running to the bank and it keeps the employees happy because they are still getting paid every night.

Cons

Reconciliation can sometimes take some time.

Village Brauhaus

Overall positive. When I've needed assistance in the past, customer support was very helpful.

Pros

Direct deposit is a huge plus. Their ability to change their pay method when needed is also really handy.

Cons

It is annoying having to do the 2-step verification. Didn't use to have to, but I understand the security of it. Just not a fan is all
