The app provides real-time analytics on the performance of all your business locations, so you can make “in the moment” decisions about how to handle your business – that might mean staying open an extra hour, promoting an underselling item, or letting employees go home early on a quiet day.
Besides real-time analytics, you can check daily performance summaries and comparisons to your business’ sales the previous. It’ll also provide insight about your most popular items overtime, and you can zone in on either one location or view sales at all your businesses at once.
Square says its beta testers checked the app 12 times a day on average, so business owners certainly seem to appreciate the mobile functionality; it’ll certainly be useful to check if you’re busy running errands and not sitting by a computer.
The dashboard app is available from the iOS App Store now.
