Flexible payment options allow for splitting customer bills, easily managing bar tabs and smooth payment processing. Users can also securely switch to EMV and integrate with QuickBooks.


Wave — Four major branches of business are covered by Wave’s products: accounting, invoicing, payments and payroll. Accounting software lets users connect all their accounts and can ease the pain of tax season. Invoicing syncs with accounting and offers ready-made templates. And payroll and payments can smooth financial interactions with staff and guests.

The company says benefits include time savings, consolidation of sending purchase orders and the ability to integrate with existing networks. There's also mobile invoice scanning, which lets users snap a photo of an invoice so the software can extract the data.
