CenterEdge Advantage

Any FEC small or big can benefit from CenterEdge. It pulls your entire facility together under one point of sale. Groups, redemption prizes, Bowling modules, Laser Tag modules, webstore, kiosks...just to name a few. As CenterEdge is relatively young they are growing and expanding at a rate that can not be ignored and we are glad to have them back at our locations.

Square POS

Perfect for small and medium sized businesses with a customer-facing function that require a system for collecting payments. It is both a credit card processor as well as a simple till for cash transactions. It integrates well with certain e-commerce providers, allowing you to sell website stock in person and thus prevent double-selling of inventory. We had a mixture of website items pre-programmed into the system, as well as some fixed price buttons for commonly sold items, and for the rest we simply entered the price. Super flexible. We could use it when we travelled away from the shop and relied on 4G connectivity. We had separate accounts for separate team members. I hear it works well for restaurant-type businesses in terms of its options but it's not something I have experience of

Pros

CenterEdge Advantage

  • Point of sale. The interface is very user friendly and can get very granular on how you want to ring in guests not only at the point of sale but from a groups perspective as well.
  • Modular. There are so many great integrations with CenterEdge from inventory tracking to Laser Tag modules and if they don't have it, chances are they will very soon.
  • Groups. This is how we make a good amount of our income and CenterEdge really helps us deliver a great guest experience from the time the sale is made to the time the guest leave the building after their event.

Square POS

  • After you set a daily processing deadline time, charges processed by that time are deposited the next business day.
  • The reporting dash board looks overwhelming but that's because it has all of the the information that you've processed before. That was invaluable when we recently went to look at the detail on a two year old transaction and were able to find the information by ourselves.
  • The ability to use multiple devices is great. We can process charges on a computer, a tablet, or even a smartphone.
  • Receipts are automatically sent to the customer's preferred email or texted to their phone.

Cons

CenterEdge Advantage

  • External Employee Scheduling. CenterEdge has its own scheduler but in today's high tech world there needs to be more integration with big companies like When to Work and HotSchedules.
  • F&B Recipe creation and management could be a little easier but it still does a good job.

Square POS

  • If you have to enter the card manually, the transaction fee is 1% higher. We keep cards on file for wholesale orders and often run them through this way. Using Square Invoicing (having customers pay on their end) can avoid this problem.
  • Using the app on a phone, you can't access sales summaries. You have to download an additional app, Square Dashboard to view these things.
  • The chip card reader we use works well sometimes and seems to go in and out other times.

I have never had a negative experience with the support team for Square POS. They made the whole setup easy for me and answered all the questions I had when comparing payment options at the beginning of my search a couple years ago. I have nothing negative to say about support!

Alternatives Considered

CenterEdge Advantage

Micros is great for the restaurant industry, but we're not that. We are an FEC with MANY activities under one roof including F & B, but Micros just could not handle keep track of everything we offer to our guests. Centeredge does that and more. If you are a bar/restaurant then Micros is for you. But if you are an FEC with many different offerings and you want to have control over your sales, don't think...choose CenterEdge.

Quickbooks GoPayment was not easy to integrate with its software. We were still having to manually import all transactions just to track the income. Square makes it easy to organize all the data at your fingertips and easy to download the info in different formats for easy import.

Return on Investment

CenterEdge Advantage

  • Reporting. We can see exactly where our income is coming from and going with how granular the reporting is. No losses here!
  • Coupons and Discounts. We are in full control of our discounts and how often they are used, something that our previous POS could not give us.
  • Ease of use. I said it before and I'll say it again because it is true. It's easy! And who doesn't love easy???

Square POS

  • We are able to track our clients' and customers' spending habits, and cater marketing to different types of consumers easily.
  • No hassle; the flat fee, while seemingly steep compared to other merchant service providers up front, is just that, flat. There's no extra costs or service fees attached to the processing fee, and the services available more than make it worth while.
  • Invoicing and payments online have added a more secure option than taking payments over the phone.
