It’s not easy being a florist these days, especially one with a brick-and-mortar storefront. With the market changing and consumers moving more and more toward online flower shops and local supermarkets to get their flowers, the local florist has had to be nimble in the last few years.
Part of staying competitive as a florist in the 21st Century is expanding your business equipment beyond just secateurs and vases. Case in point: a good point of sale system can be an invaluable tool for any florist, especially one from Clover™.

Phone Sale – Taking orders over the phone is a huge boon to any florist. The Phone Sale app lets you easily and securely accept credit card payments over the phone, great for helping customers who are ordering last-minute.
stockIt – The stockIt app provides easy inventory management, sales analytics, and best of all lets you automate the ordering process.
