    Floristware makes it easier to take orders from repeat customers saving boat loads of time especially during holidays. It also makes all orders available at your fingertips for easy reference.

    Pros

    Floristware saves time and is easy to use even for computer shy people.

    Cons

    It's designed for accrual basis accounting only.

    Customer service, although not available immediately upon a phone call, is exceptional. Extremely fast and responsive to emails and remote assistance is established easily if necessary.

    Pros

    Non proprietary software (FTD or Teleflora). Works with all sorts of hardware set-ups, easy to get started.

    Cons

    Multi screen order entry makes order taking difficult at times. Sales reports are sometimes lacking in terms of filtering capabilities. While I love the "Progress Tracker" delivery module of this system, a "Map All" function would be a nice addition.

    I have worked in a lot of different retail stores and used a lot of different software. The flower business was more complicated than other retail (you are taking orders, not just ringing up sales) but this software was probably the easiest I have used. It also helped me do the job right. I didn¿t know anything about the flower business, but this software made sure that I took orders properly and didn¿t make mistakes. And I really didn¿t need any training.

    Years ago we left our wire service system because it was too expensive and too much of a headache. Trapped to their credit card processing, membership, contract, etc. We tried another POS system (not from a wire service) but was no good for a real flower shop. It lacked too many things. Like you could not enter more than one order into a sale. Maybe OK for a shop that does less than $100K a year but not for a serious florist. FloristWare is great. All the features. Very easy to use. When you call for support you have to leave a message, but they call you back. And they are real experts on the system. Not just a call center. The support is very good.

    FloristWare is easy to use customer oriented software. Order taking process is simple. It has a suite of amazing features (Short cuts for often used addresses; Email receipts, quotes and delivery confirmations, etc.) Business reporting is top notch: daily sales report, sales by product or category; compare sales in different periods; Sales by customer). One computer/station is enough for low volume shops (under 20 orders/day). I would recommend two stations for anything over 20/day or shops with high walk-in traffic. Did I mention that this POS uses your existing computer (it does not sell you equipment, it does not sell you CC terminal and it does not sell separate module for everything that you need in your shop). FloristWare is paid on a monthly subscription basis, and the price is incredible for the value

    We have used FloristWare at our shop for several years. The software is easy to use and the people are great to work with. It is very easy to learn and new employees and seasonal hires are up and running very quickly. The standing order features could be a little more powerful but the people at FloristWare have been very interested in our feedback and are working on the kinds of changes we have talked about.

    We have been using Floristware since 2008 and couldn't be happier. Floristware handles everything from internet orders to accounting with precision and ease. Mark and his team couldn't be more delightful to work with. Lucky for us we have had so few issues over the years that other than set up, updates, and when we have added a new computer, we have not had to call for support. Floristware does everything in the florist business we need it to do at a fantastic price.

    I've used Floristware since I first opened my shop, and have never regretted my decision.

    Floristware is more than just a POS - it's also a customer service database, a marketing engine and an inventory management system. It doesn't just report our sales; it increases our sales. It does everything I need, and produces every report I want ... and even allows me to export data into a spreadsheet so I can produce reports and graphs on any aspect of my business. It's simple to use, with intuitive features to get up and running in a short amount of time. Like any powerful tool, however, the more you put into it, the more you'll get out of it. To maximize its full power, the user should be long-sighted, and willing to think strategically about their business, so as to create the sales accounts and categories that will best track desired performance measures over the long term. I couldn't be happier with the Floristware POS system. But the icing on the cake is the people who create and support it. Users will always have questions. The Floristware support team is always there to quickly answer questions and assist with any issue. They're the best.

    Everyone I have dealt with at FloristWare truly understands the flower business. They say they only hire people that have at least five years in retail floral for support roles and it shows - they understand the industry which is good because I don't want to have to explain it to them.

    Best POS System For Florists

    Our shop has used many different POS systems over the years and FloristWare is the best. It costs a fraction of what we paid for various wire service systems even though it has all the same features (and probably more). And unlike another independent POS system we tried there are very few limitations ¿ this is an affordable system that is as good or better than much more expensive options. Service is also very good and the company does a lot to support the industry.

    The software itself is easy to use and clearly designed with actual flower shop experience in mind. We have many clients using FloristWare and it has proven to not only be a very popular choice, but users stay with the system a long time and typically become ardent brand advocates.

    The FloristWare team offers exceptional customer from the initial sales process through setup, training, and ongoing assistance. They are prompt, courteous, and very invested in the success of their clients.

    Cons

    There really isn't much to dislike, and the dev team is very responsive to input from customers.

    Working alongside the FloristWare team (we have many mutual clients) we have been able to quickly and effectively tailor integration solutions to meet the needs of our users.

    Pros

    I feel that Floristware is an affordable and reasonable alternative to comparable industry products. It performs reliably, produces great results, and is an incredible value to an independent florist, regardless of size. The ability to expand to other stations as needed, and on demand is a true value. Also the basic requirements and lack of specialty demands for hardware should keep this system on the forefront for independent, value minded florists searching for a great POS.

    Cons

    Floristware performs very well and relies on user input, the more you do with your system, the more it does for your shop in the long run. Not a complaint or quality issue, just a required commitment from it's user makes it an even better product.

    The ability to see average purchases was great. Staff can easily see what a returning customer spends and then recommend similar products. Also ability to set reminders for birthdays and anniversaries was very helpful in making outbound calls.

    Cons

    The backup process was originally very slow for us. The computer we were running it on met the min specs but just barely. We changed the computer out and backups became much faster.

    FloristWare immediately simplified sales tax calculations cut our bookkeeping costs by 75%. It allows all of the customer tracking information we need including historical purchase patterns, customer contact and billing information, and customer preferences. Inventory control and sales reports are generated in an instant and things like staff performance and sales breakdowns are available in every imaginable configuration. FloristWare gave us back our Sundays!

    Cons

    A few less steps/screens in the order process would be nice, but FloristWare does have the ability to include multiple orders in one sale which is a great feature.

    FloristWare allows for easy communication of quotes, invoices and receipts. We know that repeat business often comes from a customer locating an old FloristWare receipt. The folks at FloristWare are responsive to the changing retail landscape and offer great added benefits to their clients like webinars. The service department is excellent and help is a quick call away when we have questions.

    Cons

    There is very little I don't like about FloristWare. It does everything I need. New features are continually added to the software, and older features are updated regularly to allow superior customer service from us to our clients.
