Last weekend the Strelitzia team set sail for Leicester and pitched up at BFA Vision 2018. We had a fantastic weekend meeting lots of you wonderful florists and enjoying all of the speakers on Sunday. The speakers were all incredibly interesting so we thought we’d go through each to give you a flavour of what went on.
I hope you’re all gearing up for a super busy bank holiday, but not so busy there’s not time for the odd drink or two!
Here at Strelitzia, it’s been a crazy few months, and we re-launched at BFA Vision Business Conference with our brand-new logo, and the first sneak-peak of our new software. It was so great to see so many like-minded florists at what was, the best Vision conference yet.
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).
As you may be aware, Strelitzia is undergoing a rebuild to modernise the software, to include more features and to be on the cloud.
As I’m sure you are all aware, there is new legislation coming into action next month called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We’ve had a lot of questions about this and hope we can reassure everybody that Strelitzia will be fully compliant. For extra clarification we have explained in more detail below why Strelitzia needs to comply and what we have done to ensure we comply.
It’s the news you’ve all been waiting for… Strelitzia is relaunching late Summer 2018 with brand new software on the cloud!
Strelitzia will be accessible anytime, anywhere and on any device
We will be fully compatible with Apple products, meaning no more clunky Parallels.. phew…
The software will have a new modern look and feel, while still being super easy to use
We’re got a pile of new features that we’re so excited to be sharing with you over the coming weeks and months, so keep a look out for update emails

As many of you know, we have been in talks with Florismart regarding a collaboration between the two companies for some time now.
Due to differing priorities, Strelitzia’s Board of Directors have come to the regrettable decision that the company should carry on without Florismart. This is within the best interest of the software, and you, our customers.
It has been a hard decision, but one that we feel is right, and we are now putting everything into rebuilding Strelitzia so that it will be on the cloud, and encompass many new features that you are asking for. We will update you in the New Year as to a time-scale for this.
Mark and Katie are now working entirely for Strelitzia, with Matt here for help and support when you need him.
Thank you for your continued support, and if we don’t speak to you soon, good luck with Christmas and we hope you get a good rest when it’s all over! Please don’t hesitate to send us an email at [email protected] or give the office a call on 01325 722398 if you have any questions.
Check out our latest blog in which Katie gives us the low down on both the RHS Chelsea Florist of the Year & the RHS Chelsea Young florist of the Year. I think you’ll agree that some of these designs are truly stunning!
Happy Sunday everyone, I haven’t written a blog for a little while so I thought I’d pen one this afternoon.
The Strelitzia team were out of the office last weekend, visiting BFA Vision 2017. It was a fantastic weekend, with so many inspirational speakers with reams of useful information to help florists run their businesses better.
