We all remember a time when a cash register was the go-to POS system for florists. Just like all other modern devices such as TV’s, telephones and computers, there has been some major technology updates.
Thankfully the till system has been one of those to see a significant transformation, with more advanced systems now available to serve your customers. As technology has become more advanced, we have seen the introduction of card payments, and now even cashless payments. Meaning it’s increasingly easier to make customer purchases and the customer experience more efficient and easier. Over the recent years, technology has continued to catapult forward, meaning that even this technology is becoming outdated. The good news is it’s being replaced with the cloud POS system, which Strelitzia started to roll out earlier this year.
Here at Strelitzia, we understand the need for more advanced tools that are easy to use and specifically for florists. We run a florist business too, and we understand that technology really is a powerful tool which can make huge changes to the way your business is run. And even better, enhance the quality of life you have outside of the workplace. Sounds like a no-brainer, right?
A POS system that is specifically designed for florists is a must needed tool to help you realise the goals of your shop. Strelitzia have hundreds of users across the globe, and with so many florists now using the latest technology, it’s time for those who aren’t to adapt.
Still unsure if a POS system, created by florists, for florists would improve your business? Then here is some extra information which may help you decide.
As one of the leading floristry software providers, Strelitzia has more features than you can shake a gerbera at. One of the biggest advantages is that it’s very easy to use and links to your main Strelitzia system. All of your data is stored online, which means you can remotely access on any device using the cloud. Your computer screen or tablet acts as the front end of your till, while the till draw fits neatly and discreetly below the counter, saving valuable space, especially in smaller shops. The whole experience makes running your flower shop as flexible as it’s ever been.
Another advantage of your data being stored on the cloud, means that no matter what life throws your way, we have all of your data backed up safely.
Here are some more ways moving to a cloud-based POS system could help you and your flower business:
- All your products are organised into categories, in an easy to find format. The front end of your EPOS shows categories, for example ‘Bouquets’ and ‘Cut Flowers’, which then open up to show specific products, for example ‘Gerbera’ or a certain type of bouquet.
- You have the option of paying by cash, card, and cheque or, if the customer has an account with you, you can put the amount owing onto their account. A receipt will then print out, listing the exact products the customer has bought.
- Cashing-up at the end of the day is quick and easy – all you have to do is enter in your end of day float, and the cash, cards and cheques you are putting in the bank. The rest is automated and will work out any errors for you. Simple!
- A florist POS software is generally cheaper than the most traditional systems. This is essential for small flower shops that need a more extensive solution with low monthly fees.
If you are still using even the latest traditional POS system to run your flower shop, then give Amy, Matt or Archie a call to see how it will work for your flower shop. It’s time you switch things up and reap all the incredible benefits of a cloud-based florist POS system.
If you’ve still got that big old bulky till that occasionally conks out, we’ve got the solution for you. We don’t tie you into a contract, and there’s no huge upfront fees or hidden costs.
