Square Releases New Register Design

SAN FRANCISCO – November 20, 2013 – Today Square, the company helping local businesses thrive, unveiled a brand new design for Square Register, the complete point-of-sale solution. The design’s refined aesthetic introduces a smoother, more intuitive experience for both merchants and their customers, and optimizes for efficiency, simple customization and ease-of-use. It also provides a consistent experience across Android and iOS 7, and with Square web dashboard, Square’s back office solution.

Square Register’s simple, beautiful design improves the seller experience in a number of key ways.

Built for speed
For many businesses, speed and efficiency at the counter is critical. Square Register’s new navigation is intuitive and ergonomic for a faster workflow that keeps the line moving. Design details improve the interaction between buyer and seller; for example, the timing of how Register screens change is designed to correspond with how customers naturally order during a lunch rush.

Knowledge is power
Square dashboard, Square’s reporting tool, surfaces the most crucial information for a business, such as what has been sold, when, and how customers paid. The new design of Square Register features a full-screen dashboard in the app that makes sales and activity available at a glance any time.

Square designs for its customers
Square’s new design smoothly integrates gratuity, allowing employees to collect more tips for their work. Tipping is effortless for customers – no disruption to the payment flow or the connection between the buyer and the seller.
