Worst system I ever worked with

I absolutely detest this system. It is too slow which results in a lot of time waste and irritated customers. It does not auto-finalize which results in even more time waste. The income on day reports tends to change suddenly.
Customer service is unhelpful. When asked to send somebody to explain the program, the first thing they say is “that is going to cost you.” When we finally got somebody, the person itself did not know how to operate the system... We have a contract for a year, but afterwards we are definitely changing!
