ConvergeHub

It is really well suited for clients looking to automate the process with a budget constraint and that is inline with most small and medium enterprises, startups as well as entrepreneurs looking for a productive environment to grow their business in.

Square Customer Engagement

[Square is well suited for] Any small business / independent contractor with little to medium business flow where a monthly fee just doesn't make sense. If you are performing large transactions or have a lot of business / a lot of people using square readers then an actual flat rate from a bank / provider would likely be a better option.

Cons

ConvergeHub

  • Customer support isn't that great, takes a lot of time to respond.
  • Notifications are not on time, i.e. they are delayed and not real time.
  • Lack of integration with other applications.
Prashant Choudhary | TrustRadius Reviewer

Square Customer Engagement

  • Some of the build quality on the peripherals could feel a bit better.
  • Have more options for businesses with more credit card transactions such as monthly or discounted per transaction once a certain number is reached.
  • Have functionality to allow for a typed card number without the higher fee if the software verifies there is a hardware/read error with the card.

Alternatives Considered

ConvergeHub

ConvergeHub offers the best set of features and the interface that it does at a price that is by far the best out of its competitors. This has been an easy-to-sell product as the maximum amount of clients are startups or SMEs and budget is the main constraint for them, with which the views of ConvergeHub creators seem to align well.

Square Customer Engagement

The only other service similar to Square I have any interaction with is PayPal here, it works in a very similar manner, and at the time had the same exact fee schedule. It has the added perk of going directly into your PayPal account if this is a service you use a lot of for your business. It (at the time) did not have any additional readers or peripherals such as NFC or Chip readers, but that may have changed now. Over all I'd say they are pretty close to each other performance wise, but Square has a bigger user base for the card reader specifically.

Return on Investment

ConvergeHub

  • It helps increase the overall productivity by automating daily routine tasks.
  • Sales & marketing process becomes easier and more productive.
  • Workflow management is easier.
  • Overall productivity increases many-fold.

Square Customer Engagement

  • This has allowed me to accept credit / debit transactions without having to have a monthly subscription to a service and lose money on times of no to little use, allowing me to have a broader customer range as checks are risky.
  • All of my initial equipment was free and there were no startup costs so my return was immediate.
  • The small fee taken out of the transaction is very much worth the ability to accept nearly all plastic transactions.
