Need a new restaurant POS but not sure which one? Read on for an honest comparison of Table Needs vs Square and choose the best POS for your restaurant.

Why Table Needs

Table Needs is a real-time, end-to-end restaurant solution, hosting menus, simplifying sales and ordering, and managing payments — both onsite and online. Designed specifically for restaurants by restaurant people, Table Needs is the comprehensive, integration-free POS your restaurant, staff and customers need.

Table Needs vs Square

Table Needs POS does a lot, but not everything under the sun – and neither do our competitors. Here’s an honest restaurant POS comparison so you can make an informed decision. 

The real-deal on money transfers

The term “Next Day Transfers” is mentioned a lot in the restaurant POS world, but here’s the truth: even though many companies, like Square, say transfers are Next Day, it’s really 2 business days before your sales are deposited into your bank account. Square offers a quicker same-day transfer but at a cost of 1.5% of the amount being transferred – which adds up quickly! 

Transferring your money with Table Needs is fast and easy – we automatically batch and finalize your daily transactions, then ensure your money is transferred to your bank within 2 business days.

A POS that grows with your restaurant

Square is great for a food truck or a small quick-service restaurant as a stand-alone device. You don’t need all the bells and whistles at this level so Square’s straight-forward system works great. But if you have dreams of expanding (or are ready to make the leap now), Square simply can’t keep up. Square isn’t built to handle the needs of a full-service restaurant or a multi-location business. 

Table Needs grows with your business. You can start with order-and-pay and easily add more features or utilize the power of our full POS. Our team will walk you through each step, answer your questions and make sure you have exactly what you need to run – and grow – your restaurant.
