Clover Review & Alternatives (2021 Guide)

Clover is a popular restaurant POS system that works well for small to medium-sized table service restaurants, and quick service restaurants that specialize in counter, curbside, and delivery orders. 

Clover offers several options to help restaurants. Users can choose between different products, based on their needs.

The first product is Clover Station, which is an all-in-one POS large touch screen that comes equipped with a cash drawer and receipt printer. This system allows you to take custom orders quickly and efficiently. Customers can split checks by any percentage. 

The next option is Clover Station Pro, which enables additional features, such as a built-in customer loyalty program and the ability to accept payment in a variety of ways, including by swipe or tap. The Station Pro is also the fastest Clover product.

The Clove Mini may be small in size, but it allows full service restaurants to manage an entire staff. You can also use the Mini to keep real time inventory and alert you when you run low in stock.
