New in Clover®

One of the greatest advantages to the Clover® family is the fact that it is constantly evolving to better serve merchants.  The automatic updates allow for you to run your business without worrying about scheduling updates, or even having to pay to keep your POS system up-to-date.  Last week, our team learned about new Clover updates that will add even more convenience to your business’ day-to-day.  With Clover® there is something for everyone.  If you already use a Clover®, you can go ahead and take advantage of these features.  Not a Clover® merchant, but want the awesome benefits?  Let us know how we can help?

Clover Employee Login Cards

Now your employees can use a secure employee card to clock in and out for their shift.  This feature adds a level of confidence for managers and owners in knowing that employees are properly clocking in and out.

Bar Tabs

We are truly excited about this new update.  No more adding an additional app to manage your bar tabs.  From within the Register app on your Clover, you and your team can add and manage bar tabs with ease.  This has been, by far, the most requested feature for the Clover POS, and now that it is here, the Clover feels like a complete package for bars and restaurants.

Clover Online Listings

Go beyond payment acceptance and drive more online and offline traffic to your business.  The new Clover Online Listings tool offers a free scan of 70+ sites across the web to check the accuracy of your online business listings.  After the scan, you have the option to manage and update any and all information found online.  This can assist in building brand awareness and turn searchers into buyers.

Click & Collect

Want to simply offer in-store pickup without adding the extra manpower to support it?  Easy.  Clover Click & Collect gives you the configurable option to let your customers choose whether to ship or pick up on site directly from the website checkout.  Your inventory is adjusted accordingly, so it’s smooth sailing.

3 Steps to Accept Payments and Boost Business: Step 3

Step 3:  Online Presence

At this point in the game, your business should be equipped with your checkout counter point-of-sale and a solution like Clover™ Flex.  The third step in accepting payments and boosting business is to have an online presence.  You can easily set up a simple online store for an added convenience for your customers and to attract new customers from practically anywhere.

Retailers

While your primary focus may be sales in your brick and mortar store, you can’t deny that having an online presence will allow for new growth that the storefront just can’t attain.  When you have a Clover POS in your business, you can seamlessly integrate your current inventory into an online store.  Once your store is up and going, payment processing is also a breeze.  Your customers will be able to enter their payment information and checkout quickly and simply.

Restaurants

Menu, please.

It’s true what they say, “if there’s no online menu, I’m not going there.”  Oh, you’ve never heard that?  Well, believe it!  In July 2015, a whopping 86% of diners said they check out a restaurant’s menu online before choosing to go.*  That was two years ago, so those numbers are likely even higher now.  Your online presence can mean big business for you, even if it is just a simple website with your current full menu.

Go beyond the menu.

You don’t have to stop at the menu–think bigger and boost your business by offering online reservations and ordering.  According to Business Insider**, “Orders placed via smartphone will make up more than 10% of all quick-service restaurant sales by 2020, Business Insider Intelligence projects. At that point, mobile ordering is expected to be a $38 billion industry.”

Let’s Do This

So, what are you waiting for?  Whether you’re only at step one, accepting payments at the counter in your business, or you’ve got your countertop POS and on-the-go payment solutions but are without an online presence, you can accept payments and boost your business with ease.  Let Targeted Merchant Solutions help you get started today!
