The secret ingredient to running a successful bar is more than just good drinks—you need good customer service, incentives, and management to keep even a well-oiled machine running.

As a merchant, there are a number of pain points to address especially if you have heavy foot traffic (and we hope you do!). Clover can help take your business to the next level with amazing apps to integrate into your workflow and customer service. Here are six Clover apps to get you started in managing the bar of your dreams.

Authorizations

If bar patrons are ordering aggressively and you worry whether they can afford the tab, this app has you covered. Clover’s Authorizations app lets you know if there are sufficient funds on a credit card before charging the final amount.

Happy Hour

As the saying goes, it’s always happy hour somewhere, and with this app you can do it right. Happy Hour allows you to manage discounts for categories of items depending on the time and days of the week.

Clover Dining

This app is the digital manager you never knew you needed, but always wanted. Create the vision of your perfect bar by customizing floor plans, managing bar tabs with ease, communicating with your kitchen and floor staff all through an intuitive interface. This gives you more time to focus on building a profitable business.

Clover Rewards

Grow your clientele by creating incentives that keep them coming back for more! With this app you can transform first-time visitors into regulars by creating a custom loyalty program specific to your bar.

TipHaus 

Bartenders and waitstaff are not the only people keeping your bar running, but making sure everyone gets a fair share of tips can be complicated. TipHaus syncs with your POS and allows you to customize tip distribution according to your bar’s needs. The employee-facing app lets employees understand their tips in real time, send money back and forth, and even get tipped out on the same day.

Table Pay

With this app, organizing different breakdowns of payment has never been easier. You can easily separate tickets on one bar tab so customers only pay for what they ordered. Made for the Flex, Table Pay lets your staff handle complicated transactions quickly and easily.

Don’t forget that the best way to navigate a busy bar and keep orders accurate and easy is with a Clover Flex in your hands.
