Clover = A decade long game changer

Beginning in 2012, a New Point-of-Sale vendor leaped onto the market, and Clover Station was the name. Clover’s design and software platform transformed an industry and enabled merchant service providers, on the First Data processing platform, to hold a distinct advantage and a compelling story that merchants openly accepted. Finally, there was an a-la-cart POS product, that was web-based, and it allowed businesses to change items remotely, collect transactional behaviors of customers, and integrate marketing, payroll, inventory and so much more. Below we discuss the value of the Clover Station, now on its 5th version.  Clover is the leader in modern Point-of-Sale for merchants across the U.S. and The Payment Exchange team are Clover experts. 

Clover POS is generally considered a reputable and reliable point-of-sale (POS) system that offers a range of features and capabilities.
