Square has delivered a cutting edge point-of-sale solution to physical retailers with the unveiling of its new “Business in a Box.”

According to the mobile payment processing company, the product acts as a full point-of-sale system for retailers. The platform allows users to do everything from accept payments to perform analytics on their businesses. And it’s all done from just one device.

Square says that its “Business in a Box,” which starts at $299, works in conjunction with Square Register, Square’s popular app that enables vendors to input custom product inventories and accept payments with Square’s credit card reader.

In short, “Business in a Box” supplements the set up with a traditional cash drawer. There’s even an option to toss in a printer. Hardware packages are customizable according to customer needs and Square says there are no commitments.

“Neighborhood merchants are increasingly adopting Square Register for its simple interface, smart analytics, continuous updates, and low processing fees,” the company announced Wednesday. “With Business in a Box for Square Register, merchants can now simplify their countertop with an affordable and comprehensive package that includes two Square Readers, an iPad stand, a cash drawer, and an optional receipt printer. All work wirelessly with Square Register.”

    The register is too general, it won't be a good solution for customer service nor retail unless they spend some serious time on researching and developing versions focused on multi-industries where credit cards are often used. For example, a simple restaurant needs many features then most people realize (eg department store or a grocery). And, I think a "Register" just is not going to do all that. This is a clever idea, but it's not brilliant. Anyhow, I am an mPowa (www.mpowa.com) user and a small business owner, and I think this is not enough for Square to win me over.
