FloristWare is committed to helping better prepare floral program students for a career in the industry by allowing them to acquire hands-on experience with a POS system. With that in mind we provide a free educational version of our software as part of our ongoing effort to help retail florists and the industry thrive through focusing on more than just design.
"I knew from my own experience in the floral industry how powerful having a POS is for a floral shop, and that there was a gap in our curriculum if we could not give our students access to one. Having that hands-on experience when they begin an internship or apply for a job will give them a huge advantage. I also liked that FloristWare was an independent system that gives them the full range of a POS without being tied to a specific wire service."
A variety of schools - from small floral design schools to community colleges - are already using FloristWare in the classroom and, in some cases, their associated training stores.
"We feel very fortunate to have FloristWare provided free of charge for our students to use. We hold twice-yearly sales where they are able to use FloristWare to build the orders and then ring the sales up. This sets our program apart because our students graduate with real business skills on their resumes."
If you are with a school or college and are interested in learning more, please contact Susan Page at 1-888-531-3012 x708.
"Now our trainees can get real hands-on experience with a POS that teaches them about the business side of managing a floral shop - including marketing, managing employees, financial reporting and much more."
"The system is so easy to use, we can focus on the benefits of POS technology rather spending time on how to use it."
