Square: Pixelbooks and Figma improve productivity and design workflows


Square, the financial services technology company, needed to help employees remain productive as the business grew globally—while also keeping workers and their data secure. In addition, Square’s design teams wanted to solve design workflow challenges caused by siloed software environments. Pixelbooks with Google Workspace are now offered to new employees, reducing IT management and easing security concerns. As Square’s design teams adopts Figma, the browser-based design tool, designers can now choose Pixelbooks as an alternative to MacBooks.

Since the IT team doesn’t need to image drives or install applications, Pixelbooks can be set up in about 70 percent less of the time needed for other devices. Now that Figma has added the ability to use custom fonts with Figma Organization, Square’s designers use Figma on their Pixelbooks to collaborate on projects and get faster approvals.

Pixelbooks help us scale the business as fast as we can hire people, with less operational overhead.
