The combination of a reliable payment method and carefully selected POS apps can help you run your business and provide your customers with the best buying experience possible. If your business has been searching for the holy grail of payment processing systems, look no further. We offer the entire lineup of Clover products and services for your business, with solutions we can scale to the size and complexity of your company.
The Right Payment Hardware For Your Business
Let’s take a look at the different payment processing hardware options on offer from Clover. Let’s start with the smallest, most portable option. The Clover Go is a tiny, but powerful card reader that you can bring wherever your business takes you. As long as you have WiFi, you can use this sleek, lightweight device to accept payments via chip, stripe, and contactless, like Apple Pay.
The next option is the Clover Flex. This device features a touchscreen that allows you to accept payments from the palm of your hand. In addition to accepting the same payment methods as the Clover Go, it also allows you to accept fingerprint logins as an extra security precaution.
Next is the Clover Mini, which is a tabletop touchscreen device that incorporates the power of Clover payment processing with sales and inventory management tools. It’s an all-inclusive POS system that helps to optimize your sales and streamline your business operations.
If you’re looking for a little something extra, consider choosing the Clover Station. This is Clover’s fastest POS system and it includes everything from a cash drawer, customer-facing console, customer engagement programs, and the same payment processing power as the other Clover devices. With so many options, it can be hard to choose, but we’re here to help!
Incorporating POS Apps into Your Business
Beyond choosing the right payment processing hardware, selecting the right POS apps is a vital step for the success of your business. If you’re not familiar with POS apps, they are programs that can be incorporated with your payment processing hardware to boost sales, generate donations for your favorite charity, increase customer engagement and satisfaction, collect customer contact information, and more. The POS apps are divided into the following categories for easier navigation:
- Understand Your Business: Perform data analytics and generate business insights
- Reach Your Customers: Offer gifts cards and increase customer loyalty
- Manage Your Employees: Hire new employees and coordinate your workforce
- Organize Inventory: Manage your inventory
- Sell Online: Create websites, optimize your online presence, and sell online
- Invoicing: Create and manage invoices
- Cash Management: Save money on processing fees
- Form Building and Signature Capture: Accept customer signatures
- Fundraising: Generate donations for your favorite charities
- Customer Management: Collect customer information and receive feedback
A Few of Our Favorite Clover Apps
Clover offers countless POS apps for you to choose from, but we’ve compiled a list of a few of our favorites. One of our favorites is the Round Up for Schools app. This app is available at no cost to your business and there’s no hassle involved with the set-up or daily usage. It allows your customers to make a donation to your company’s school of choice by rounding their purchases up to the nearest dollar. Your customers will appreciate your business’ commitment to helping local schools, and you’ll be able to provide extra funds to your favorite school for supplies, academic programs, and afterschool activities.
Another favorite of ours is the Gift Easy app. Gift cards have always been an easy way to generate revenue for your business from your future sales, but ever since COVID-19 began, consumers have started favoring contactless payment options. Instead of offering a physical gift card, many companies have started offering digital gift cards that possess a multitude of benefits to both the customer and the company. Most importantly, a digital gift card allows the balance to be added to a customer’s mobile wallet, which eliminates the need for physical contact in a payment transaction and removes the cost to the company for creating an actual gift card. Gift Easy makes creating beautiful, digital gift cards easy.
If you’re in the restaurant industry, there’s a good chance that you’re feeling the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic more than many other businesses. If you’re looking for a POS app to help streamline your business, control your food costs, and optimize your labor force, consider trying out the Restaurant 365 Integration app. This app is a complete restaurant management solution that will connect your bank, POS devices, and vendors to help optimize your business efforts. It also provides forecasting and analytics to help you predict your potential costs and revenue.
