Great way to connect with other businesses
Townsquared is clean-looking app that allows me to stay connected with local information that’s helpful in running my business. There are safety alerts, conversations with other businesses in my neighborhood, and resources Ive found useful. I highly recommend this app.

I like this platform and the iOS app just makes it that much easier for me to work and get advice from other local businesses in my community.
