About Us

Square Stack was created for Small Business Owners by Small Business Owners.

SquareStack started with a small group of Business Owners, called our SquareStack Circle, who were all concerned with the effect of technology on their industries. Among many concerns, the loudest was the difficulty of integrating all their current technology tools into a universal system.

Bill Furlong, the Founder and CEO of SquareStack, took these concerns and decided to find a solution. Over the last few years he has created and developed the brand new SquareStack “Business Apps Command Center”, a universal gateway for all your technology tools. The SquareStack Circle has stayed involved with the project, creating the basis of our focus groups and and iterative beta testing, as we scale our solution. We invite your feedback too when you join SquareStack.

Community

SquareStack was inspired by small business owner’s desire to better leverage their technology to help move their organizations forward. The founders of SquareStack created an SMB Owner Collective called the SquareStack Circle, who contributed to focus groups, beta testing and its iterative feedback. We’d like to thank these companies’ CEO’s and partners for all their help as they continue to be our best advocates.

Here at SquareStack, we believe in Small Business and are dedicated to giving back on the street level. We are interested in working with chambers of commerce, business clubs and events, and charities that are directed and run by small business. Please share with us some of your favorite organizations!
