Flowers by Nattrass Reviews Strelitzia

Flowers by Nattrass is a well established designer florist based in the North-East of England. Sally Bennett, owner of the company reviews Strelitzia, and talks about how it’s helped her business over the years:

“I’ve used Strelitzia in my shop since the beginning. I would be completely lost without it, as the software looks after everything I do from accounts to my database to routing my delivery lists days in advance. It’s so easy to use, and my staff love it.

“Ten years using Strelitzia means that my customer database is HUGE. I would never have been able to do this without Strelitzia. I just wouldn’t have had the time or the resources unless technology was doing it for me. And now it means that when I send emails I get a really great response and ultimately, business out of it.

“Because Strelitzia has evolved from its users asking for specific features to be added in, the result is a platform that is completely tailored to the florist industry. I’ve asked for so many things that are now part of Strelitzia, which is really great to see. Later this year they are relaunching to become cloud-based and I am super excited for this change. It will mean that I will be able to access it from wherever I am, and on any device.

“I’ve been a florist my whole life; I took the business, Flowers by Nattrass, over from my Dad when I was in my 20’s. My career has been an amazing one, and I’ve met and learnt from so many amazing florists along the way. But honestly, without Strelitzia these past few years my business would not have been anywhere near as professional and efficient as it is today. In my opinion, this is the best software you could use for your floristry business; there isn’t anything else on the market that is as comprehensive.

“I know there are many more exciting things in the pipeline for Strelitzia, and I for one can’t wait to see, use and help them evolve!”

Here are the competitors and information about their amazing thrones:

GDPR Advice

GDPR HEADINE PIC

The information and advice available on the GDPR legal requirements coming into play on the 25th May 2018 is enough to make your head spin.

For those of you that don’t know, the GDPR is regulations on how you collect, store and use your customer data. It’s important to note that this is not a new data protection obligation. It replaces and mirrors the previous requirement to have ‘appropriate technical and organisational measures’ under the Data Protection Act 1998 (the 1998 Act).
