  • We are able to communicate design ideas via a FloristWare quote, and tailor orders to fit the client's needs and budget.

  • Recorded orders make serving repeat customers more quickly and efficiently, and gives us the opportunity to get to know exisitng, as well as new customers, well in a more personal way, thereby developing stronger relationships which, in turn, creates customer confidence and the feeling of greater personal attention.

  • FloristWare is a great program, and I want to see it grow even more. With all other POS's I have never been able to collect as much customer information, and I love it.

  • FloristWare has also simplified Accounts Receivable. This is typically the single biggest benefit for any shop thinking of switching from a paper based system to a more efficient electronic system. Instead of recording an order on paper, entering it into the cash register, writing an enclosure card and delivery slip, and then – usually at a much later time or date- entering the order into an accounting program, FloristWare does it all at once. You enter the order (which in itself is easier then ever before having instant access to all the customer and recipient information) and FloristWare automatically prints the work order, the delivery slip and the enclosure card. It also provides the options of printing an invoice at that moment (formatted for a window envelope) or faxing or e-mailing it directly to the client. This feature is a much more efficient and cost effective way of managing the order taking process and keeping Accounts Receivable up to date. That translates into better cash flow and lower staff costs.

  • The thing I love best about the marketing tools is the fact that they are so easy to implement...

  • The product is easy to use and there are built in strategies to raise the average order.

  • For the longest time I thought a POS was there to organize orders and run reports; boy was I wrong. After looking at FloristWare, I now know that the greatest feature a POS should have is a marketing solution that makes money for me. After useing or testing other floral point of sales, FloristWare's marketing features are amazing, easy to use and is a lot easier to train new staff to use than other systems I have tried. One bad thing about FloristWare is, I lay in bed at night excited coming up with new marketing ideas with my wife and I am losing a lot of sleep. :)

  • We tried your marketing feature of FloristWare for the first time just in time for Mother's Day. We created a mailing list of 300 names and mailed out a postcard 10 days before Mother's day. We also did a follow up about 5 days with an email reminder. You could have knocked our socks off with the response. We had 48 orders – not responses – but 48 orders from the post cards. We are in the process of creating an agressive marketing campaign using FloristWare and will let you know the results. The extra business I'm sure is more than paying for you program. Keep up the good work!

  • I'm convinced the fundraising feature doubled my Prom business this year. I partnered with the local high school to give back 10% of all the Prom business generated by the school. They put my glossy postcard in all the Prom packets. My Prom Open House this past weekend was a HUGE success, and Floristware is tracking it all for me.

  • Being able to access a customer’s info with both their name and their phone number – this has helped save face many times when you know the customer well but can’t pull their name to mind on the spot. Also, being able to see both the customer’s and recipient’s history while taking the order is invaluable – again because it makes the client feel known to you, even if you didn’t personally serve them before.
