Square is a financial services company that provides payment aggregator and POS services. From side hustles to enterprise level businesses, Square allows merchants to accept credit and debit card payments for online and in-person sales. Its dashboard feature provides basic analytics helping users to track sales trends and identify repeat customers, but users will find the data from Square alone is insufficient to gain a full picture of their business’s health. With the help of Panoply’s code-free data platform, merchants can finally get a 360 picture of their business. Panoply allows merchants to sync, store, and combine their Square data with other data sources like Facebook Ads, Google Analytics, PowerBI, and Shopify, revealing game-changing analytics and visualizations that go far beyond Square’s basic insights.
