Square has jumped into point-of-sale software in Australia with a suite of back-office tools called Square Register.
The app is available on iOS and Android follows the trend towards replacing dedicated cash registers with tablets and smartphones.
Square claims it has millions of businesses in the US already using Square Register and several in Australia.
“I’ve been using Square Register for about three years now,” says Michael Cheang, owner of Frisk, a bar located in Perth, Australia, in a Square press release.
“We looked into all the alternative options, and ultimately chose Square for its simple layout. We love Register’s clear design, fast movement between screens and access to important info about my business online if I want it,” Cheang says.
Square Register includes a dashboard showing key metrics and digital receipts to email to customers. It can connect to hardware such as receipt and kitchen printers, cash drawers and barcode scanners.
An app marketplace lets retailers connect Square Register to business apps such as Twitter analytics app SumAll, automation engine IFTTT and inventory control app Stitch Labs.
Square Register is available worldwide in English, Spanish, French and Japanese, and supports 130 internationally recognised currencies including the Australian dollar.
