DALLAS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Tantrum Street is launching Cartwheel Register, a free mobile app for business owners that combines a next-generation store system, full-stack payments and a powerful social good marketing message to customers.

“We’re passionate about ensuring that Cartwheel Register eliminates the distractions and hassles small business owners face on a daily basis so they can focus on doing what they do best,” said William Cervin, founder and CEO of Dallas-based Tantrum Street. “Whether you’re a merchant at a flea market, or a store with hundreds of daily customers, Cartwheel Register is intuitive and secure, with easy-to-understand analytics for owners facing a world of complicated business, payments, loyalty and marketing decisions. Also, as more and more consumers focus their spending toward socially responsible businesses, our participation in Good Returns gives Cartwheel Register users a competitive advantage while bringing a sustainable, poverty-eliminating focus to everyday transactions.”
Cartwheel Register will be available on the Apple App Store in early 2014, with future availability on Android and Windows Phone platforms.
