With innovations like Square’s iPad register, small businesses and retailers face a slew of options for how to manage in-store sales without having to pay thousand of dollars for older point-of-sale terminals.
But many of these newer offerings don’t do the tracking that many small retailers need after the transaction happens.
That’s where a new YCombinator and Yuri-Milner-backed startup called Cube comes in. Calling itself the “Salesforce for point-of-sale,” it provides a suite of analytics that lets small business owners track their workers and manage their inventory and multiple business locations.
First, it offers a basic credit card terminal that you can plug into your iPhone or iPad’s audio jack (like Square) and a free point-of-sale app.
