Why your business needs a Clover Flex
Here’s why Clover POS is essential for your business to succeed in the digital era.
What is a Point of Sale (POS) device?
Essentially, a POS device helps you take payment from customers. If you’ve ever been to a restaurant and after finishing your meal, your server gave you a blocky handheld device to pay using your debit or credit card, guess what — you’ve used a point of sale terminal.
But there are levels to POS terminals, and the Clover POS occupies the summit. It is a powerful multifunctional device that was thoughtfully built with aesthetically pleasing design and intuitive user experience equally in mind.
Meet the Clover — A terminal that does everything
If you’re a business owner, you know how important it is to process your customer sales as quickly and securely as possible. But the Clover is much more than just a wireless payment terminal. It can also:
- Barcode scan and track your inventory.
- Help you manage employees.
- Provide insightful business reporting
- Process any form of payment
- Accept any form of payment from anywhere.
- Be accessed from anywhere via Cloud and more.
The Clover is perfectly suited for counter service restaurants, retail businesses, table service restaurants like bars, restaurants, salons, coffee shops — essentially any business that accepts direct customer payment.
Here are the top reasons why your business needs this revolutionary terminal.
Reason #1: Accepts Any Payment
Ten years ago, processing payment was simple. Customers were limited to a couple of mainstay options like credit, debit, cheques, and good-old-fashioned cash.
But times have changed. With the popularity of mobile phones comes the rise of mobile payment services like Apple Pay and Android Pay used by more people each day.
The marketing research group, eMarketer.com, reported that in 2019, there was an astounding 6.8 million mobile payment Canadian users — roughly translating to 1 in every 5 people choosing to pay with their phone.
As a business owner, you must keep up with customer trends.
Clover Flex can help. It was built to anticipate and seamlessly handle evolving customer behavior, so you’re always ahead of the curve.
You’ll love how it can process any form of payment, such as:
- Debit/credit cards (chip and PIN)
- Gift cards
- Personal cheques
- Mobile payments/contactless payments like Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, Paypal, and more
Reason #2: Insightful Business Reports
Business reporting boils down to tracking the progress of your business.
Running a successful business means analyzing your business reports so you’ll glean valuable insights like best-selling units, payment types, profit and loss statements, and other useful metrics.
After a long day of serving customers, the tedious accounting work needed to crunch business reports can turn into an entirely exhausting job of its own.
Instead, make your life easier. Instantly get numbers on your sales, revenue, and expenses on the Clover. In real-time.
Uncover your hidden business insights
Learn when your busiest times are. Monitor employee sales. Check on how many customer refunds and discounts. Organize sales by type.
What’s really convenient is that all of your financial reports can be synced and imported into 3rd-party accounting software like Quickbooks and Xero.
Reason #3: Excellent User Experience
The Clover was designed with modernity in mind, and it shows through its aesthetically pleasing interface. Navigation buttons are large and easily identifiable with high contrast and clear wording to guide customers to quick checkouts seamlessly.
But it’s the additional workplace features that make the Clover so useful and indispensable to employers and employees.
