First National helps you focus on what you love about running your business

Karen Able is passionate when talking about The Fat Mermaid bar and restaurant, and why not?

Entrepreneurship often comes with rewards and the kind of perks that make getting out of bed each day worthwhile. But the need for managing day-to-day details that take time and energy is also part of doing business.

However, the times, they are changing because Clover™ is here.

With the security and reliability of a terminal coupled with the flexibility of a cloud-based point-of-sale (POS) system, Clover is the first solution to meet the complete spectrum of small- to medium-sized business owners’ needs. Ring up sales, view inventory, track revenues, manage employees and view reports – anytime, anywhere. Clover replaces the cash register, payment terminal, receipt printer and barcode scanner with an all-in-one system.

Able started using Clover at The Fat Mermaid earlier this year after trying two other merchant systems. She was close to trying a third Lower 48-based POS when First National Bank Alaska Valdez Branch Operations Supervisor Sonja Hursh paid a visit.

Hursh told Able about Clover.

“It didn’t take more than a few minutes for me to realize this is what we needed,” Able said. “We really like Clover. It tracks everything from orders to invoices much better than previous systems and has been a real valuable addition for us.

“It also pays off in convenience for our customers because we’re much more efficient.”

Clover is powered by intuitive, cloud-hosted software that comes with everything a business owner needs in one convenient package. It’s ready to work right out of the box.

“As we learned more and more about Clover, we knew it could be an integral and welcome tool for many Alaska businesses,” Hursh said. “The hardware takes up very little space and features a small footprint and state-of-the-art design.

“It really sells itself and provides tremendous value.” Clover is ideal for quick-serve restaurants and retail businesses. Key features include:

  • Ability to conduct transactions even when the Internet is down
  • Clover App MarketPlace that allows POS integration
  • Merchant analytic tools to access and use customer data
  • Payment card data securely stored with TransArmor service
  • Live 24/7/365 customer support
  • Easy set up – no IT person required
  • Cash drawer, receipt printer and barcode scanner
  • Customizable apps to fit your business needs

“I’m glad we put Clover to work for our business,” Able said.
