TouchBistro, an iPad point-of-sale (POS) system for restaurants and bars, today announced its integration with Square, the global leader in mobile payment processing.
With the integration, restaurateurs using TouchBistro can include all services Square can offer: payment processing, accepting Apple Pay, depositing their money instantly and accessing a loan through Square Capital.
“This partnership has been many years in the making, we are excited to finally bring Square’s elegant, best in class hardware and processing to our customers,” said Alex Barrotti, CEO and founder of TouchBistro. “Together, TouchBistro and Square deliver a great combination for hospitality venues of any size.”
TouchBistro is an iPad POS solution designed to work as “the heart of a restaurant or bar, significantly increasing efficiencies and the overall customer experience,” the company says in a press release. Servers use the TouchBistro iPad POS system to take customer orders tableside, or while patrons are in line or at the bar. Orders are then instantly transmitted to the kitchen or bar for preparation.
Bills are automatically calculated and split according to the patrons’ requests.
With the Square integration, initially for US-based restaurateurs, TouchBistro venues can use Square’s hardware and simple signup from within TouchBistro. Bill totals are transferred automatically to Square for payment.
The TouchBistro POS app features a full suite of cloud reporting tools that address all the information restaurateurs need to manage the business, from seating, inventory, and sales analysis to scheduling and payroll.
