“The addition of Square Assistant has made running my business even easier,” said Diana Sanchez, owner of Gentlemen’s Hair Co. in Gleneden Beach, OR. “My clients receive quick responses and solutions regarding their upcoming appointment, minimizing their wait time, directly from me. It’s really like having your own personal assistant that can direct clients instantly and efficiently.”
