It’s hip to be Square

Three Dogs Training has moved to using Square card readers to accept credit card charges in the field.

While it’s understandable that you’d think I was tipping my hat to Huey Lewis and the News, I’m actually going to talk about something slightly cooler than 80s retro music: behind the scenes, Three Dogs has been busy migrating to Apple from Windows.

There have been some growing pains – mostly for Lawrence – but the upsides to moving over were just too numerous to ignore.

The iPad and iPhone, for instance, really are as amazing as advertised and don’t get me started on how great (and sometimes hilarious) Dragon Dictate is.

While many of the benefits are out of public view, one that we’re really excited about is that I’m now able to swipe credit cards thanks to the Square reader. By using the reader I’m now able to accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover anywhere I go.

More and more it’s becoming clear that we’re sprinting toward a cashless society, and the level of convenience Square offers is just too great for my clients not to take advantage of it.
