What is Squire?

Squire is a web and mobile barbershop management system with features for appointment and staff scheduling, reminders, reporting, and native mobile apps for customers to discover and book barbers in any city. Using the Squire Commander platform, barbershop owners can manage everything from online booking to payroll, and manage multiple locations from desktop or tablet. Additional features include point of sale, automated text reminders, loyalty rewards, and more.

Key benefits of using Squire

  • Send automated text reminders to clients when it’s time for them to get a cut, keep notes on each client, and identify VIP clients with Squire.

  • Squire's point of sale syncs with the platform's scheduling features, allowing users to seamlessly check out clients, accept payments, and manage barbers all from the same device, as well as accept chip, swipe, or Apple Pay/Android Pay.

  • The one-touch payroll feature enables barbershop owners to set up pay periods and Squire will automatically deposit those payments to the barbers' accounts. (Requires an additional processing fee of 0.5% on payroll transactions.)

  • Squire helps increase revenue by listing businesses within the client app, helping barbershops get discovered by new clients and provide them with access to book appointments directly, and while on-the-go.

  • Promote the business' brand with a custom native iOS mobile app made by Squire that can be customized with the shop's logo and color scheme.

    Pros
    From the back end user (Organization, Manager) What I like most is the ability to have more control over our brand presentation and the ability to collaborate more efficiently with our barbers.
    Being able to raise prices has been a huge help. Not only to my clients but as well as my employees by being able to track their progress.
    I love the squire supply- that’s an excellent add in, and I love that it’s one price regardless of staff- as I grow I don’t have to worry about price increases.
    Cons
    They don't give a crap about your success as long as your money cleared. I wouldn't suggest this booking app to my worst enemy.
    No hardware for barcode scanning as it takes a SKU/UPC. My staff rings up wrong items all the time.
    If you have self employed barbers, you have to ring up product and services separately. The checkout process on iPad is odd, as it forces you to have 4 options of TIPS suggestions.

    Atlanta Shop Owner/Celebrity Barber’s POV

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    In a time like this (Covid-19), having a management software that makes it easy to track business productivity is essential for finding funding. On a daily, it’s allowed me the luxury of focusing on marketing and developing my team as daily/weekly payroll operations are very simple.

    Pros

    It’s just easy to use as an individual or for an entire shop. Scheduling, payroll, marketing, mass communication with your clients, and so much more. It’s really a barbers dream operating system.

    Cons

    Initially (in 2017) there were a lot of features that were missing. That provided some challenges with client communication, but that has long been fixed. No real cons now.

    More than just a booking app.

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Being able to collect and exam data is imperative to my small business. Squire allows my to see trends and act accordingly to maximize sales opportunities, not only in service categories but in retail also. I’m able to easily check and modify inventory, and make sure the products that are top sellers are ordered on time to avoid missing sales due to being out of stock. Squire has helped my business run more efficiently Which helps my business be more profitable.

    Pros

    Inventory control, reporting features, time clock, analytics, ease of appointment setting. POS system very easy to use and collects all imperative data of sales and customer history.

    Cons

    I wish the customer service was easier to reach via phone and were more accommodating to west coast business operations. However they respond pretty quickly through the online chat support.

    Squire - beautiful but not there yet

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    Clean interface for client and admin/staff. Easy checkout with photos for products. great onboarding staffing setup. great sales team. great COVID19 policy. clean search based on BRANDS in products. allows booth rental barbers to collect their own earnings and CC fees.

    Cons

    Squire pre-authorizes the card on file 1 hour before service even though your cancellation policy is 24 hours before service, marketplace clients will book appointment with apple pay with gift cards that don't have funds and won't show up. Deletes "notes" when merging duplicates of clients. If you have self employed barbers, you have to ring up product and services separately. The checkout process...

    I can’t survive without it...

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Overall, I couldn’t be more satisfied... I have worked with several different scheduling platforms but SQUĪRE blows all of them out the water. It’s more than just a scheduling app, it’s complete management software. Fro POS to mass communication, from merchant transactions to customer care, from presentation to efficiency... SQUĪRE makes me look 20x better.

    Pros

    The user friendly easy to understand analytics. The software makes it easy for me to track my day to day operations as a whole but more importantly, from barber to barber. Also, at the week end, it allows me to see my earnings collectively on one screen to see what days were more productive than others.

    Cons

    I can’t honestly say there’s anything I don’t like about it but rather, there are some things I think should be added to the software.

    Eye Opener

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Being able to raise prices has been a huge help. Not only to my clients but as well as my employees by being able to track their progress.

    Pros

    Squire helped me realize how much money was coming in per chair and which employee had the most clients coming back. I never knew how important that information was until it was shown to me. Such an game changer for my business.

    Cons

    I’d love to have the option to collect the payment of an appointment the day they booked their appointment.
