Square One Systems, Inc.
Sherwin-Williams partnered with, Square One Systems, Inc., to administer and moderate the Vision Group program. Square One Systems has been widely recognized as the premier “20-Group” provider in the industry since 1988.

Elainna Sachire, President of Square One Systems, Inc. and 2007 Collision industry “Woman of the Year”, believes that success is based on two very important pieces. First, that Square One is able to improve the financial performance of the Vision Group members’ businesses. After all, everything a collision owner/manager does must be proven in the bottom line. Secondly, that Square One keeps an eye on the direction of the ball and not on the ball itself. Vision Group meeting agendas include the latest industry trends, topics, and strategies.

Looking at your business through your customers’ eyes and exceeding their expectations is critical to your success, and our success.
