We own a boutique where we also offer screen printing and embroidery. The Clover system was sold to us as full POS system. Not the case at all. We were all excited to get started with it. It looked modern, cool, and expectations were high. When we tried to ring up our first printing order of more than 100 pieces we found our first issue. The system will not allow sales of items with a quantity of more than 100. Not a good thing when we routinely sell t-shirt orders of more than 100 shirts. We either had to make up multiple skus, which made a receipt look terribly unprofessional, or make an invoice on Word. Then I wanted to run a report on inventory value. Not possible. You can export a report to excel but good luck with that. My wife and I have both called customer support. We were both told that when enough people complained about the same issue, they may look into a fix. Until then, nothing would change. This was after going through multiple customer service reps who didn’t even understand what I was asking for help with. When asked if we could return the 2 POS systems we bought we were literally told “they’re yours, you bought them, do what you want with them, you could try selling them on ebay”. Needless to say, at this point, POS and Clover have a whole new meaning for us. Definitely not “Point of Sale” or “Lucky Clover”. We’re currently looking for another option, over $2000 and a lot of frustration later.
Clover is a very acceptable point of sale system for small businesses, as long as you understand the risks and challenges of using First Data for payment processing and hardware/software support and are pretty confident you want to use Clover for the long-haul (or you can afford to buy new equipment if Clover doesn’t work out). Also, make sure you are comfortable with the bank/merchant account you purchase Clover from because you’ll be relying on them for most support-related issues. Check out our recommendations if you think Clover is right for you.

Clover is super easy to use and get started with, even if you have minimal or no POS experience. Its short learning curve makes it easy to train employees, and proprietary features such as fingerprint login (on the Clover Station) make logging in a breeze. You don’t have to source your hardware from different places and hope it’s all compatible; Clover has everything you need to start selling out-of-the-box.
Clover’s default inventory management allows business owners to keep track of what they have and reorder supplies as needed. Each item can have variants, attributes and options and modifiers. All these features combined give business owners various ways to enter their inventory and make it easy for staff to ring up orders. As mentioned earlier, additional inventory apps are available for unique needs.

This is honestly the worst POS system I’ve ever worked on. If you have a table service place that’s busy, it can’t even keep up. I take longer editing and entering food. Every feature that comes with Aloha or Micros or any other system costs extra monthly for this system and it makes no sense. The printer is constantly going out, there’s really no rhyme or reason to any of it. If I change a name on a ticket, there’s no changing it when I print it out. If someone wants to tab out of a group, the entire ticket needs to be tabbed out or you have to create a new table and move the guest there. So much of it makes no sense if anyone who developed the app had even asked for a restaurant to beta it.

Contacting customer service was slow and painful. At 11:30 at night my job other than finishing with the waitstaff and their banks was done. The phone call to customer service took 18 mins to answer then the service person’s accent was very thick and I had to ask for him to speak slower and more clearly (I am assuming he was in India which is not a problem as long as I get clear concise answers.)

Damien CONTAT est éleveur sur la commune d’Allonzier-La-Caille à 600 m d’altitude. Il a 80 chèvres laitières (Saaneen + Alpine) conduites en 3 lots de mise-bas (février, juin, octobre). 20 chevrettes de renouvellement viennent compléter son cheptel, ainsi que 12 génisses en pension. Le parcellaire comprend 10 ha prairies multi-espèces en fauche + pâture printemps/automne et 2 ha de mélange 80% luzerne + graminées et trèfle blanc. La majorité des fourrages est produit sur la ferme. La ration de base est composée de foin/regain et d’une VL27 + maïs grain. 100% du lait est transformé sur la ferme.

La méthode « fil avant et fil arrière  » qui y est appliquée (lire en encadré) consiste en outre à faire progresser les animaux dans la pâture de manière régulière, pour éviter un surpâturage et un piétinement excessif qui abîmeraient la prairie. « Les animaux restent un à deux jours dans leur « cellule de pâturage  », puis passent à une autre. Cette méthode est issue d’études réalisées au siècle dernier par un chercheur et ingénieur agronome français, André Voisin. Celui-ci avait constaté que la pousse de l’herbe était défavorisée dès lors que les animaux la coupaient à plusieurs reprises, et que la productivité était au contraire améliorée par un pâturage bref, qui laissait ensuite à l’herbe le temps de repousser », explique A. Delpech. Autre point d’importance sur lequel s’appuie le système néo-zélandais : l’introduction de légumineuses dans les prairies (trèfle blanc essentiellement), source de protéines indispensables pour s’affranchir des tourteaux de soja. Fort de toutes ces données, A. Delpech, de retour sur son exploitation, étudie et expérimente la faisabilité de ces méthodes et les moyens de les transposer chez lui.
Clover offers expanded functionality through their App Marketplace. For example, Full service restaurants can download an app that gives them access to a table layout screen. Retailers have many apps available to them as well and are served better by using one of the advanced inventory tracking apps instead of relying on the native inventory tracker.
A. Delpech initie alors une batterie d’essais pour trouver quelles variétés de RGA et trèfle blanc sont les mieux adaptées à sa situation sur le modèle néo-zélandais. « Mes critères de choix ont reposé sur des espèces rustiques capables de résister à la sécheresse en été, afin de ne pas être obligé de ressemer tous les ans, explique l’éleveur. Celles-ci doivent en outre montrer leur aptitude à produire suffisamment de biomasse en hiver pour la pâture. Et contrairement aux idées reçues, c’est le ray-grass anglais qui est sorti du lot face au ray-grass italien, fétuque et dactyle. » L’éleveur observe que certaines variétés de ray-grass anglais se mettent « en dormance » lorsque les conditions estivales sont trop sèches, mais ne meurent pas. Et, question productivité hivernale, le ray-grass anglais se montre aussi performant que le ray-grass italien. Côté légumineuses, l’éleveur utilise le trèfle blanc, sur le modèle néozélandais, ainsi que le lotier dans les zones les plus sèches.

Avoid like the plague!!! The system itself is passable, but lacks several of the features that our salesperson assured us would be available. The main issue is the Clover Customer Service. Trying to even access your account while speaking with a CS Rep is excruciatingly difficult! We were provided our Merchant ID number, which we enter each time we call. It never works (even though we have been told it is the correct number). So they then ask you several minutes of questions to confirm your identity. I know that is for our benefit, but shouldn't be necessary each time. We have tried to change the contact email address, ("Can't help you with that"). We tried to change the business address, ("No problem.") but it still hasn't been changed. And good luck trying to get any real technical help! Sorry to rant, but we dumped this system after four months due to the extremely poor customer service and bait and switch we feel we fell for.
