Here's what we'll cover:

What is florist POS software?

Florist Point-of-Sale (POS) systems are designed to meet the unique needs of flower shops. Florists can use POS software to better manage and organize their business as well as easily meet customer expectations. Common features of Florist POS systems include arrangement inventory, spoilage management, reciprocity tracking, florist service management, route planning, enclosure card printing and more.

Three factors dramatically impact a florist shop’s success. First, it is a relationship-driven business, and not just customer relationships. There are supplier relationships, reciprocal relationships with other florists, relationships with other businesses and relationships with national services. Second, almost the entire inventory is perishable. Third, although there is steady business throughout the year, Valentine’s Day and Mothers Day are by far the busiest days for most florists.

The stress points for a florist shop are inventory, customer relationship management (CRM), order entry, point of sale (POS) and accounts receivable. Florist shops are one of the specialty retail industries that are adopting Software as a Service (SaaS); several cloud-based general retail software supplies ofter specially configured versions for florists and there is at least one cloud-based florist shop specialty software product.

 

Common Features of Florist Shop POS Software

Florist shop owners need core accounting, but should evaluate the following functions to meet their unique requirements:

Reminders Florist shops live and die by continuing sales with existing customers, but reminders were problematic because it was difficult to send a targeted, private message to someone who lived in a household with others. Social media and electronic communications provide an answer. Customers can now receive reminders of important dates by email, text, Twitter or Facebook to surprise their partners on birthdays and anniversaries.
Fundraising support A number of fundraising organizations have tied specific flowers to specific causes. Examples include poppies for Veterans on Memorial Day, yellow roses for first responders on Patriot Day and pink roses for Breast Cancer Awareness. The system should send reminders to the organizations in advance, and prepare orders for inventory.
Florist service management Florist services, such as FTD and Interflora, are important sources of business for florist shops. The software needs to maintain inventory to fulfil advertised arrangements, place orders with service partners as necessary and accept orders from the services.
Co-op advertising In addition to the orders relationship with the florist services, there is a co-operative advertising relationship. The system should track the money spent on qualified advertising in the accounts payable and bill the service against available funds.
Floral strategies support If the florist uses or intends to use Floral Strategies methodologies, the florist shop software package should also support those methodologies.
Arrangement inventory Arrangement inventory is more than tracking the stock of flowers. The system should check the inventory of all components for a particular arrangement, including vases and any other special additions. If a particular item is not in stock, the system should suggest a suitable replacement.
Spoilage management Spoilage management has two parts. First, the system should track the items that are about to expire and notify the florist. Second, the system should make it easy to track items that spoiled prematurely. Tracking spoiled inventory can help the florist to better evaluate the quality of each supplier’s stock.
Reciprocity tracking Florists share business with other florists in their trade area if orders are too big to handle or if an order is outside of a given delivery area. Florists also work with other businesses, such as candy stores, wedding planners, funeral homes and caterers, to collaborate on special packages. The system should track how opportunities are shared back and forth between different partners to discover which are the most profitable.
Standing orders Hotels, offices and other businesses often have standing orders for fresh flowers. The florist system should automate this process by checking stock for the proper inventory, placing orders when necessary and scheduling the arrangement and delivery.
Enclosure card printing One of the hallmarks of florists is the enclosure card. It is also a heavily manual process. A florist system should print enclosure cards in a clear but stylized font. Best practice is to have the customer email or text the message, then cut and paste it into the printing system to be certain all names and words are spelled correctly.
Route planning One of the more challenging aspects of florist work is deliveries. The florist system should plan out deliveries taking into account the number, capacity and range of each vehicle. If a vehicle must make multiple runs, the system should optimize the routes to account for returning to the shop for reloading. Advanced systems can dynamically change the route to account for new orders during the day.
Trip sheet management Historically, the route is provided to the driver on a printed trip sheet that lists all the stops and projected delivery times. A desired featured is the use of electronic trip sheets using smart phones, which can track the van in real-time and adjust the route for new orders.

Expected Benefits

Florist shop software will help you to better organize your business and meet customer expectations. You should expect the following benefits when implementing and using a system properly:

  • Efficiency: Not only can software help you streamline your ordering and stocking processes, but route planning applications can help you figure out the most efficient way to organize each day’s deliveries, with advanced systems even taking into account incoming orders. The CRM and POS aspects of the software will also help your business become more efficient in its dealings with customers, while accounts receivable functions can streamline your financials.
  •  
  • Automation: Automatic reminders will help you to keep up with your regular customers, alerting them to upcoming holidays, including birthdays and anniversaries, without you having to keep track of these dates yourself. You will also be able to remind yourself about standing orders and specific floral needs for holidays, events and fund-raising drives.
  •  
  • Freshness: By tracking when your stock is going to spoil, flower shop software can help you keep track of when you need to refresh your stock, put items on sale and know which items from what suppliers have a history of spoiling prematurely.
  •  
  • Organization: Software will help your shop stay organized in a variety of ways, especially through inventory tracking of both individual items and lists of items necessary for particular arrangements. In addition, you can take advantage of the important functionalities that are crucial for any business: employee management, scheduling, accounts receivable, point of service, customer relationship management and so on.
