TouchBistro, a leading iPad point-of-sale solution for restaurants in 37 countries, announced Monday its integration with Square, a global leader in mobile payment processing. With the integration, restaurateurs using TouchBistro can expand their capabilities to include all the services Square can offer—whether payment processing, accepting Apple Pay, depositing their money instantly, or 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,” says Alex Barrotti, CEO and founder of TouchBistro. “Together, TouchBistro and Square deliver a great combination for hospitality venues of any size.” 

“Today’s partnership with TouchBistro is a natural fit for our hospitality companies and means that more sellers will have access to a greater range of software solutions, payments and financial services to reinvest in their business,” adds Francoise Brougher, business lead at Square.

TouchBistro brings mobile innovation to the food and beverage industry with an iPad POS solution that is designed to work as the heart of a restaurant or bar, significantly increasing efficiencies and the overall customer experience. 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 U.S.-based restaurateurs, TouchBistro venues can use Square’s hardware and simple signup from within TouchBistro. Bill totals are transferred automatically to Square for payment, thereby minimizing order errors, increasing operations efficiency, and improving the overall customer experience.

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.
