Florist Software Comparison Update

 

A few years back, we compared seven software programs on the market to help run your business, and are still getting questions and responses to the article years later! Well, in this day and age, we all know how quickly technology advances, so we thought it was about time to do an update.

We’ve narrowed it down to four of the most popular florist-specific programs from our original article, giving you updated features, images and more. If you’re in the market for something to help streamline and organize the business side of your company, we hope this helps in your research and determining the best program for you!

You probably know by now we have a partnership with Curate and think they’re awesome, but we wanted to be sure provide information on all available programs because we know not everything is a one-size fits all! Plus, we’ll never pass up the opportunity to make a fun infographic 😉

While these four programs are specific to floral designers, there are other programs available that are designed for creative fields in general that might fit your needs better! We have many customers who use and swear by Dubsado and HoneyBook, so take a look at those if you’re looking for something different than the above featured programs.

As floral designers, I think it’s pretty safe to say that many of you fall more on the right-brain side of the spectrum. I’m definitely not speaking for everyone – for all of you that have figured out that balance, more power to you! But for you right-brainers, your creativity is what drives your business, and is probably why many of you ended up in this industry. That being said, running a business is probably not the strong suit of every floral designer out there… I mean, who wouldn’t rather geek out over flowers than spreadsheets?!

Well, we felt it was our duty to do a little research of our own, and provide our awesomely creative customers with the knowledge of what products are out there to better help run and organize your business. Yep, believe it or not, there are apps and software you can download to help streamline all those pesky contracts, order forms, and proposals you deal with on a daily basis.

We selected these seven programs to compare, but we’re sure there are more out there, and would love to hear what you’re using in the comments below! And if you already know about some of these programs, which are your favorites?
