With help from First Data and Clover Station™… this restaurant increased sales and business efficiencies too!
For a great example of what First Data and Clover™ Station can do for small business, look no further than Carter’s.
The restaurant implemented Clover and now has quite the appetizing tale to tell.
“I popped into Carter’s to see how they are doing, and they are LOVING Clover,” Amanda reported about her happy client. “The manager says she and the owner are watching their sales on Clover’s reporting tab ‘like a stock ticker’ and are so excited they finally know how much they are making. Their sales have skyrocketed.”
Can a solution like Clover Station really have that big of an impact on sales? You bet your barbeque it can. In Carter’s case, here’s why:
Speedier service = higher sales
Much of the client’s business is carryout. With Clover’s easy touchscreen software, the restaurant is moving customers and their orders through the line more quickly, and the parking lot is clearing out faster. So when people drive by and see the place isn’t overflowing, they realize they can get their food faster and are more likely to stop in. Essentially, the volume of business they were doing on Fridays and Saturdays is now happening every day of the week.
“The quicker turnaround has made their customers happier, and it’s made a huge difference in sales,” said Amanda. “They are making 30-40 percent more every single day.”
Clover’s integrated payroll functionality is a far cry from the restaurant’s old, highly manual system. Employees were clocking in by writing down their arrival times on a whiteboard – an imperfect tracking system to say the least. Now, workers clock in with Clover.
“They are already noticing that the workers are more likely to show up on time now that they know they won’t get paid for the time they are late,” Amanda said.
Similar to the payroll situation, Carter’s was manually tracking inventory – literally, with pencil and paper. Not since Clover Station arrived, however. Now, rich inventory functionality is integrated right into the solution, providing a level of visibility the restaurant has never had before.
“Clover has totally changed things for them, in a matter of about 10 days,” Amanda said. “It’s incredible to watch. Now they really understand what’s going on in their business.”
