New & notable in the Clover App Market: September 2017

September 18, 2017

Most Clover merchants rely on a few key apps to boost their speed and accuracy. Others regularly test and adopt great new software being added to the Clover App Market—and save themselves even more time and effort.

Don‘t get stuck in a rut. Whether you’re developing a customer loyalty program, booking reservations, handling deliveries, or marketing with social media, there’s a Clover app that can help you do it faster and more effectively.

Check out the Clover App Market for a full listing of free and fee-based apps. Read on to learn about three intriguing apps developed for specific markets: golf courses, cigar shops, and businesses that collect lots of signatures, such as shops that rent canoes or bikes.

Link Quick18 reservations with Clover check-outs.

Now that customers can book tee times online with Quick18 Teesheet, it’s never been easier to organize an outing. The software has been a boon for the 15,000-plus golf courses now operating in the United States.

Many of those courses also use Clover to process customers’ payments for time on the green to food and drinks at the bar. And that’s where technology can frustrate—you’re forced to use different systems for different functions.

Quick18 Teesheet integrates the two systems. When a golfer with a Quick18 reservation checks in, the data automatically transfers to the Clover pay screen, where you can quickly check them out.

The Clover screen lists the rate the golfer was charged—including member price, PGA discounts, or public rate—whether the player has requested 9 or 18 holes, and any taxes due. Handling complete transactions is a breeze!

Merge the ease of DocuSign with the convenience of Clover.

In fast-paced settings like a check-in desk, speed and simplicity are critical. But for many small businesses, taking shortcuts can lead to lost investments and legal exposure.

A family of four, for example, arrives for their helicopter tour, while another group wants to rent surfboards for an afternoon on the waves. Protecting the business means lots of waivers, agreement forms, and general chaos at the start.

Fortunately, most business have moved away from paper and now automate the process using DocuSign, a popular e-signature service. To make it even easier, Clover has teamed with DocuSign to integrate the SimpliSign app.

Simply upload agreements, release forms, and other documents from your DocuSign account to the Clover station. Clover automatically fills in key information, lets you gather signatures digitally, and stores the information to your DocuSign account.

By blending technologies into a seamless experience, check-in becomes quick, secure, and reliable.

Bring your massive cigar inventory under control.

If you own a cigar shop, you need more than a breathtaking variety of stock. You’ve also got to know exactly what you have and where to find it. But with tens of thousands of individual cigars, that’s a lot of inventory to keep track of!

Cigaratory was developed to tame the madness. Using your Clover device, the app lets you manage inventory, break boxes into multiple types (sample packs, singles, etc.), create sample packs of different types of cigars, generate purchase orders, and gather information on vendors and customers.

Using the Clover station as a command center, Cigaratory handles the nitty-gritty of running the cigar business—letting owners focus on acquiring great products and sharing expertise with aficionados.

Clover helps you get things done. From taking orders to keeping track of inventory to scheduling employees, the sleek POS and array of apps are great for automating tasks, reducing errors, and eliminating extra steps. Make your life easier—with apps.
