Square Dashboard for iPhone Launches, Brings Real-Time Sales Analytics

Square today has launched Dashboard for iPhone, which allows merchants to access real-time sales records from their Square Register iOS app. Merchants are able to easily compare sales between multiple locations, time periods and even find out which items in their inventory are selling the best, to optimize their business.

• Sales Summary: See sales, number of items sold and average sale amount.
• Sales Comparisons: Compare sales to last week, last month or last year.
• Categories: See which categories outperform others.
• Items: Sort your items to know what’s selling well or falling behind.

Square Canada provided a statement from a Toronto merchant that has utilized the new Dashboard app:

“As a business owner, it is so important to keep up to date with your sales figures in real time,” says Elias Vestis of Hula Girl Espresso in Toronto. “We use Square’s online analytics dashboard every day to track our sales and the Dashboard app is perfect for keeping a pulse on our business even when we’re on the go.”

Sellers in the beta program accessed the Dashboard app on average a dozen times per day. Looks like this is a very useful app for Square merchants to check their sales data and get analytics in real-time.
