Coffee shops can be strange places. Most customers either want to get in and out as quickly as possible with their cup of liquid energy, or to hunker down with their cup of joe and stay until closing with a book or laptop. Combine that with the diverse menu offerings any café needs to offer in order to stay competitive, and you’ve got a business model that demands a huge degree of versatility. (Luckily, there’s always plenty of coffee around!)
That means a coffee shop’s point of sale system needs to be versatile enough to keep up. Old fashioned cash registers aren’t up to the task any more, and despite what you may have heard a simple iPad app probably won’t cut it either. So what’s a coffee shop manager to do? Let us introduce you to Clover™.
