Choosing a POS system for your small brick and mortar business can feel daunting. An insufficient POS system can be at best annoying and at worst a logistical (and even financial) nightmare for your business. There are so many options out there with infinite pros, cons, bells, and whistles. So how do you choose? Clover has been getting a lot of buzz, but is it worth it? While each system Clover offers is slightly different, here are some specific perks that small business owners find particularly useful.
1. Clover can streamline all aspects of running your business
A small business owner has limited time and resources. As a result, small businesses are really appreciating the fact that a Clover POS system gives you access to their customizable apps, like QuickBooks, that make running a small business easier. These apps can help you to take orders, accept payments, check your inventory, establish customer loyalty programs, manage your team, manage live bookkeeping, and collect customer and sales data. You could also use the data collected by Clover’s data reporting tools to influence your business decisions and improve your profits long-term.
2. Clover mimics smartphone technology
According to Bank My Cell, 83.96% of people in the world have smartphones today! Clover clearly noticed this, and created POS systems that mimic the ease, intuitiveness, and aesthetics we have all become used to on our smartphones and tablets. Also, much like our smartphones, Clover syncs to the Cloud and makes the information we need available (securely, of course!) from anywhere. This is especially useful in the age of Covid-19 when anyone could need to work from home at a moment’s notice.
3. Clover is customizable
Clover comes fully functional so that you can get started right away, but also allows you to customize the hardware, software and apps best suited to your business’ needs. Clover also allows your customers to customize their orders so that they get exactly what they want! Say goodbye to the days of complicated mental math to split the check 8 ways and having to sheepishly tell your customers, ‘Sorry, no substitutions’. Clover makes complicated customer orders a breeze, and splitting the check has never been easier!
