Let’s be honest - you know what Square is unless you’ve been living under a rock. It’s seemingly in every coffee shop, sandwich truck, and mall booth across the States and has grown an increasing list of fans over the years. Those of us at Cuboh are super pleased to announce that we’ve partnered with Square, adding to our already hefty list of supported payment processors.
But what does that mean, and why should you care? I’m so glad you asked - let’s dive right in.
Square & Cuboh: A Match Made in Heaven
For the uninformed, Square is a super simple POS that supports both e-commerce and brick-and-mortar stores and provides a swathe of hardware options. Each offering from Square is designed from the ground up to ensure you’re working with hardware built with simplicity and ease of use in mind.
Coincidentally, Cuboh (in case you somehow didn’t know and ended up here anyway) is a like-minded service focused on quality of life for restauranteurs across the globe. We help restaurants navigate the POS minefield and avoid human error in orders, ultimately streamlining your business through software integration.
Now, let’s dive right into what our partnership means and why it’s so exciting to us!
What Does Square Do?
In its basest form, Square is a hardware system that allows business owners to effortlessly process in-person and online payments, employ top-notch marketing campaigns, and streamline and manage inventory, staff, and finances.
And, as they’re an incredibly well-known name in the industry at this point, it felt wrong that a POS integration service like Cuboh wasn’t partnered with Square. So, we made it happen! Now, Square users can seamlessly integrate their Square POS into Cuboh’s middleware software, making online ordering more manageable than ever before.
What Does Cuboh Do?
As mentioned above, Cuboh is a POS middleware service. In short, this means we take your POS and bring it into one centralized place, allowing third-party delivery and in-house orders to merge in one easy-to-find spot (and seamlessly, at that).
This cuts out human error (something that’s surprisingly common) when taking orders, ensures your customers are happy, and guarantees your staff isn’t forced to multitask too much. And if you’re a Square user that’s been diving into the online ordering, ghost kitchen, or virtual brand trends of late, you likely know what I’m about to say.
Trying to get your orders together in a single place can be a significant issue, leading to what we call “tablet hell.” If you want a one-stop solution to this issue, integrating Cuboh and Square will make your life more straightforward than ever before.
And, if you don’t believe little old me, take it from Kaveh Sarhangpour, Square’s Head of Product Partnerships. He said, “Cuboh helps many of our largest restaurant customers reduce errors and increase revenue by facilitating the use of more platforms.”
So how does it work?
