Why ex-Square customers made the switch to Lightspeed
We set you up: you start on the right foot
Your success is our success. Unlike Square, Lightspeed gives unlimited personalised onboarding sessions included with any purchase.
We give you full control of your floor plan
Don't settle for Square's limited options. Lightspeed lets you build or change a floorplan to match the exact layout of your service floor in seconds.
Make better decisions with Lightspeed
Square POS only provides half the equation. Lightspeed has built-in reports that bring you valuable insight into your restaurant.
We have 10+ years of POS experience
Square is four years behind us in experience; you simply can't go wrong with Lightspeed.
Set up coursing and split-bills with Lightspeed
Square simply doesn't support this. With Lightspeed, break up your menu by course and split the bill however your customers choose.
We support you, around the clock
Unlike Square, Lightspeed sticks with you every step of the way. Get free, 24/7 support over phone, email and chat included with any purchase.
