Software provider Square announced the release of the Square Reader software development kit (SDK), which will let developers effectively change the checkout experience on their Square Point of Sale (Free at Square) (POS) systems as they see fit. When we spoke with the company, it said this initiative is aimed at helping Square reach new customers as well as help their existing ones. According to the company, the SDK, which is currently available free of charge to developers, is already being used by major companies such as burger chain Shake Shack.
The Square POS system has had an application programming interface (API) available before this announcement. The API would let you connect functionality from third-party tools. According to Square General Manager Carl Perry, however, the SDK will allow for an unprecedented level of customization. When we spoke with him, he said he hopes the SDK will cater to the niche needs of any business and will let them create a custom POS experience by using Square’s underlying platform.
