  • 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.

  • The Jewish holidays are our busiest times of the year – having the addresses and details on file for each customer’s usual list of recipients let us take down multiple orders quickly.

  • 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.

  • I cannot believe how much my customers love the e-mail invoicing and delivery confirmations... in 4 months of using FloristWare I feel so much more interactive with my customers because when I send the invoice or a delivery confirmation they usually write back with how the recipient liked the flowers or a quick thank you or even a picture that they got from the recipient... this is huge in todays marketplace... I am also impressed with the plethora of marketing tools and the possibilities opened up to have a continuing relationship with my customers, the points system is a great offer to my customers and something they don't need to track so it is easy, I cannot wait until they start seeing the benefits and really get the idea behind it.

  • We are very impressed with the FloristWare point of sale system. Mark and the staff at FloristWare provide a straight forward, easy to use point of sale to manage a retail flower shop at an affordable price. Their customer service and responsiveness meet the highest of standards.

  • 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.

  • It keeps order taking/processing consistent for the entire team and it saves time in training new staff. It's also beneficial in locating data/records in a timely manner.

  • The Budget tool in FloristWare has proven very popular when dealing with price conscious clients. It allows staff to enter the clients’ total budget (what they’re prepared to spend) and FloristWare automatically backs out any applicable service and/or delivery charges and sales taxes. This shows the sales person how much money is left to spend on product.
