Square POS Review

#1 in Point of Sale Services

Square Pos is a cloud-based free point-of-sale solution that is designed to modernize payment options by utilizing its mobile app or cloud-based software. Its mobile app version could easily be downloaded on any mobile device (smart phone, tablet) but is more optimized for use in iPads. Features include offline payment processing, sales tracking and reporting and compatibility with existing POS hardware.

Bottom Line

Square is perfect for small and medium sized businesses searching for a modern POS solution. Its application for large businesses is limited since it lacks a robust inventory handling capability or employee management feature. Businesses could take advantage of this new point-of-sale service because it could easily be downloaded as an app or its cloud-based version. Square POS is a good choice for small businesses and those who would like a simple POS system that could be easily deployed and requires little overhead costs.
