Square for Restaurants, is the latest product of Square from its suite of tools, which was designed specifically for the restaurant industry.
Colin Birney, Square Australia business development lead, told ZDNet, "We know Square has always been a great fit for cafes and quick-service vendors but we haven't always been able to meet the needs of larger full-service restaurants. These businesses require deeper functionality, such as table mapping or course firing, which is why we have designed Square for Restaurants as a completely customisable solution for their needs."
The custom-built cloud-based point of sale system was designed with large-scale and multi-location restaurant operators in mind, according to the company. With this new system, managers can remotely update menus and floor layouts across multiple terminals and locations, track staff time and performance, split bills and tips, and protect themselves against fraud.
Birney, said, “Currently, businesses in the hospitality sector make up around a quarter of Square's seller base in Australia. We have also seen average year-on-year growth of 60% in the number of hospitality sellers signing up to use Square. Now with Square for Restaurants, we'll be able to cater to many more businesses in this sector."
Aside from Square for Restaurants, Square has announced Square Loyalty, enabling businesses to run loyalty programs from the Square Point of Sale app.
