SignalFx, the leading real-time operational intelligence solution for data-driven DevOps, today announced that it was selected and deployed into production by Square to gain real-time visibility into performance.
“SignalFx was purpose-built for organizations like Square. Their customers expect their products or services to perform every time, all the time,” said Karthik Rau, CEO and Founder of SignalFx. “In a connected, always-on world, where customer experience defines how a brand is perceived, companies have little to no margin for error. They need to know how well their products and services are performing in seconds. SignalFx provides our customers with real-time visibility into the performance of those mission-critical products so they know and can remediate what’s happening everywhere.”
Square creates tools that help sellers start, run, and grow their businesses. Square enables sellers to accept card payments and also provides reporting and analytics, next-day settlement, and chargeback protection. Square’s point-of-sale software and other business services help sellers manage inventory, locations, and employees; access financing; engage customers; and grow sales. Square Cash is an easy way for businesses and individuals to send and receive money, and Caviar is a food ordering service for popular restaurants. Square was founded in 2009 and is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia, Ireland, and the UK.
