Fintech company Square has expanded its point of sale (POS) app with new features that move the brand beyond payments.

The location and employee management features give small and medium-sized retailers access to tech that the company said is on par with what big businesses are using.

Ben Pfisterer, Australian country manager at Square, said the company is expanding to offer retailers the ability to manage their operations from end-to-end, card payment processing to POS.

“While payments remain our core business focus, retailers need more tools and features as their business grows to help them manage their operations more effectively,” he said.

The new tools include: the ability to oversee multiple store locations from one account; employee passcodes to track transactions; customised permission levels so you can give senior staff greater access; improved sales reports; and built-in timecards so employees can clock in and out at the POS.

“As a retailer grows it often has more specific requirements to manage a growing number of employees,” said Pfisterer.

“Whether they have a shared POS in a business such as a café or bar, or via individual devices in a fleet of staff out in the field, the launch of Square’s employee management tools empowers retailers with…capabilities and tracking.”
