Pros: We do multiple events every week. Stemcounter makes it easy to create market orders and account for all the bits and pieces. I can do estimates in far less time as well. There isn't the steep learning curve as with other programs. It is simple to understand and any questions are answered almost immediately. I had tried it out because we had a huge weekend coming up with so many moving parts I was at a loss how to organize and order for it even though I have been doing this over 23 years. The estimates are easy to read as are the recipes and orders. I have tried all the other programs but found that inspite of some really wonderful features and service, they were too hard for me to learn and I ended up giving up before they could be useful. I was able to use Stemcounter almost immediately.

Awsom...so satisfied.Helpful..great support. Love using it & learning all the new extras.

Pros: Easy & happy to use this. Once I learned to use it, I look forward to doing proposals & sending them to clients. It's so professional looking & useful. I'm not a programmer or a techie, so this software makes my business so much easier & profitable & controllable. Having everything in one place & accessable frees up time with family & confidence in designs. The support is friendly, quick & informative. I like setting up my flower library & practicing through the different scenarios. I appreciate the openess of O'Neill sharing their journey of how this cane to be as well as the informative blog posts & u tube training. The prie is reasonable gor all I get.

Overall: Organization, clarity of business proposals. Shopping list. Ability to cut down on product loss. Earlier to bed for sleep.

Love this program!

Pros: I have been using this program for less then a month and can already see the impact it will/is having on our business! Its super easy to send proposals and make changes when needed without having to redo it. This is a game changer for us! Their customer service is amazing too! They always respond and its faster then I even expect. I love the clean layout for proposals and the ability to create recipes and add photos. This makes it way easier for our team to all be on the same page with each bride. You can even create a proposal from your phone, which is super nice for those times you cant access your desktop but need to respond to a bride. Amazing!

Cons: Maybe someway to add team calendars/notification where you can tell your team when weddings get booked. This would be helpful for us to keep everyone on the same page especially for those big weddings when everyone needs to be there. A team side would also be helpful for when you have booked a bridal consultation. Just one more way to keep everyone on the same page with each new bride/wedding.

Overall: Ease of use and making weddings less of a dreaded task.

You're too kind Ashley! We love having you on the software and glad that you've been able to dive in so quickly. :) We do anticipate introducing additional tools for multi-user accounts by the end of the year so hopefully that will help out in planning!

Love this program and the customer service is top notch! They get it!

Pros: This program has saved my life as a wedding florist! Not only is it easy to use, but they get what I do and what I need. The customer service is beyond compare. I was trying to get some bids done on a holiday and had a small issue and they fixed the problem quickly. Who does that!

Overall: This software helps me organize my bids and eliminates the bidding process previously done by hand. I can adjust the wholesale pricing to the flowers I most commonly use at the pricing in my state. It literally has shaved off hours and hours of doing big bids for wedding flowers. They offer several educational tutorials from the industry as well. So helpful to stay on top of the trends and to more efficiently run my business.

Professionally a game changer!

Pros: The time and stress that this software has saved me in putting together proposals for clients are priceless! I no longer wonder if I am missing something or if I did my math well, nor do I have to go back and spend a morning altering a order. Everything is so thorough, and easy! Its professional looking, and I love that I can customize the invoice and proposals to reflect my business branding. Hands down great software! Customer rep has been promptly available EVERY time I have had a question or comment. Extremely pleasant and helpful.

Overall: Time, assurance, confidence, polished look!

Pros: The ease and how fast it is to use

Cons: The draft features

Overall: I love the software, it makes ordering a breeze, and I love how fast I can put together a proposal. I do not like how every time you leave or make an edit it automatically saves it as a draft- I sometimes make a mistake and have to reopen it, and if I miss a flower type or word, it considered it a new draft and I didn't really make any changes.

I wish there was a spot for ceremony and reception times instead of me having to put it in the notes section.

Recommendations to other buyers: Need ceremony and reception time slots

Vendor Response

by Stemcounter.com on April 22, 2017

Hey Kait! We love having you on the software! I'd love to chat with you about some of the issues you're facing. The only time a new version is created is when you decide to. The draft does automatically save to make sure you don't lose any of your work. :) That's why it's so quick! On the ceremony and reception time slots, you can add those in your "event details" section. We have florists from A-Z (Australia to Zimbabwe) with a wide variety of what information they want included so the event details section allows you to add any and all details to how your specific company works!

Comments: We do over 250 weddings a year. I was using a spreadsheet through EXCEL to give my clients a proposal. My proposals used to take hours per proposal which would put me behind by weeks or even months. I needed a program to help streamline my workload. I found Stemcounter and I'm in LOVE. A few favorite things about stemcounter - it's web based and I can access ALL my orders from anywhere. Also, with a hit of a button, my flower order is generated in a second. No flowers or supplies will ever be missed again. When i send a proposal out to my client, I get nothing but great reviews on the style and format. It's above and beyond any other proposals within my area. I have a feeling we will be turning a HUGE profit in 2017. Thank you!

Comments: Although it took longer in the beginning, now that I got the hang of it, I am able to do the estimates a lot quicker. What is also amazing is the shopping lists and the recipe list. I love the fact that the client can sign online. I still have to figure out the online payment but definitely, plan to use this in the near future.
I still have to figure out a few things, like how to do discounts and sometimes I would have 2 items under 1 heading which makes it a little more complicated.
Overall I love the product!

Comments: We've been using Steamcounter at our shop for about 6 months now, and we love it. It does take some time to initially set it up with your pricing etc, but the time it saves, in the long run, is more than worth it. It allows you to focus on being creative, while still presenting your client with an accurate and professional looking proposal! We are looking forward to using the automatic flower orderer, and menu print-outs as well!

Cons: The draft feature

Overall: I do and don't like the draft format, sometimes I make a small mistake and I need to go In and fix it but it makes a new draft. That's the only downfall. I wish you could manually make it a new draft, and not automatically have a new draft every time you make a change.

Hey Kaitlyn! Thanks so much for stopping by and reviewing. We love having you on the software. We'd love to hear any ideas on how to make the proposal versioning better! Totally understand that someones little things need to be fixed without wanting a new "version." We do have some ideas in mind for this but are totally open to anything that would help.

Pros: Automated shopping lists. Instant proposals. Payment processing. Everything is so intuitive!

Cons: I wish there were an ability to set a task list for the team.

Overall: Stemcounter has absolutely revolutionized our company. We have a small event floral business and not a lot of room for wasted time and energy. Stemcounter takes up all the tedious tasks that I personally had to do and automates them. I feel so organized!

Recommendations to other buyers: Jump right in and start making proposals. Don't try to get everything completely set first because the software does a lot of the work as you're building proposals.

Finally! Software really designed for florists who do weddings & events!

Comments: I have been searching for 3-4 years for software that actually has the functionality wedding and event florists need! Especially the ability for the software to allow you to create individual recipes for each item of the wedding, keeping track of each stem, hard good, and rental item and tracking how many stems overall you have and how that relates to your stems per bunch count. The headache of doing this manually within excel with it's potential for error and the amount of time it took to do that step and then either use word, or another online system to create the proposal, (I had started using Honeybook to generate and track my proposals) was making me want to quit doing weddings!

This software allows you to do both in one step and generate nice looking proposals for your brides. Like all software these days it is continually under development, and it doesn't have some of the bells and whistles yet that Honeybook did for communicating and tracking your proposal and payment, but the absolute fundamental functionally that I so desperately needed is there! What a relief and a godsend. I can't believe this didn't exist in the market before. It took the husband of a florist to finally develop the software.

Overall I really like the software and feel confident that they will continue to add more and more functionality and make it better and better over time. I still don't like doing proposals, but they don't make me feel like I want to quit doing weddings anymore! I like the software so much, that I now use it to generate all the recipes for my studio as it gives me a shopping list at the end too, which super handy! If you are wavering about signing up and you are a wedding and event florist, this is the one that actually has the functionality you need!

Overall: Stemcounter is EXACTLY what I have been looking for, for so many years! I have been a wedding florist for 13 years and I believe we are an under-served community. Not anymore! Ryan and the folks at Stemcounter have finally delivered a product, literally made to fit all our needs as a wedding floral professional. I love the ease and features of Stemcounter, but most of all, I love the customer service! I have had many questions about how to best use this software and Ryan and his crew always get back to me right away, and most of the time within a few minutes of my query! You can tell they truly care about making the best, most helpful product out there for florists. I am so happy to have a great product like this!!

Pros: The shopping list

Cons: booting me out of my proposal while I'm using it

Overall: Stemcounter has been fairly easy to use, but sometimes takes me out of my proposal when I'm in the middle of working on it. I'm still not convinced that it's worth the amount of money I'm paying when I had a free program through wedding wire.

Recommendations to other buyers: Add more flowers. I hate having to add so many

Vendor Response

by Stemcounter.com on December 13, 2016

Hey Tammy! Thanks so much for the review. Love having you on board. I hate that you're having issues with the software bumping you out during a proposal. This is the first we've heard of this from you and I'm personally sending you a message to see if we can figure out whether the issue is on the software or your local computer. Also! We have a huge announcement coming up and can't release all the details, but you'll have access to a huge floral library to compliment the custom items you've built in.

Pros: Easy to get started on

Cons: Need flower images and ability to upload inventory of vases and candleholders easily.

Overall: I'm coming from another program so consider that. If I could combine both of them, it would be perfect. Theirs is too time consuming. Yours doesn't have all the images and color boards I would like. It's not "Pretty" but it is functional. The ONE main gripe I have is that I can see each recipe but if I want an overall view of the flower selections, I have to go through all the recipes. For instance, say I have white hydrangeas in my order - and I know how many. But for one reason or another I want to know WHICH centerpieces the hydrangeas are in - there is no master list. Whereas in my handwritten spreadsheet, all I have to do is go down the column where the hydrangeas are. That would make it far more appealing.

Recommendations to other buyers: See my comment earlier

Pros: Love the ease of totally arrangement costs once you have a solid "master list" of flowers.

Cons: The inability to integrate with Quickbooks.

Overall: New to the program - signed up in October. I am also new to the floral industry so I am a good "test" subject! I like the software overall but there still things that could be added to make it much more user-friendly.... A few examples are...
1. Integrate with QB - I have to double enter any payments made from a Steam counter invoice into QB in order to account for sales properly.
2. Would like to "name" deposits vs just assigning a date - i.e. "save the date" deposit, "50% deposit" etc...
3. Should include place for Grooms Name when entering new customer info
4. Would be nice for stem counter to create a recipe for you based on input of flowers being used and the overall budget for the arrangement - i.e. fill in the number of specific blooms needed based on price per bloom and overall budget
5. Would like a more consolidated, printable version for back office printing
6. Love the idea of the ability for clients to electronically sign and execute a contract from their mobile device rather than print, sign and scan the signed Steam counter proposal...

Recommendations to other buyers: Please see my comments above regarding things that can/should be added for better interface/ease of use...

Pros: It fills a real need in my business and was written by a florist for florists to use to help us preform our tasks more efficiently

Cons: nothing

Overall: I have had stem counter for just a little over a month. It has helped me give timely quotes to my potential brides now that I have my pricing in a organized system. I am writing my proposals with more confidence and seeing better results. When ever I have a question I just type it in and Ryan gets back to me with in a few hours at the most, sometimes within minutes. (The only exception to his fast response I have seen is when we should all be asleep).

Recommendations to other buyers: They keep adding new sections and making it better. They are also asking us ( the users) what other features we might like to see added.

Pros: How much time it saves and the reduction of human error. Love the recipe building and that it does all the math for me. Love that I can do flower orders and supply orders with just one simple click!

Cons: No major complaints. We notice a few things that could be better, but the exciting thing about it is that it's constantly being updated and made better and the Stem Counter team is always taking notes on anything we mention.

Overall: We are just LOVING Stem Counter. We are a weddings and events floral company (no daily deliveries) and we hand write our proposal and make meticulous spreadsheets to order our flowers which can get pretty complicated when ordering for five events in one weekend. Stem Counter is more or less going to change our lives. I think we have had daily freak outs about new features we are discovering and realizing will be insane game changers. Honestly. It's taking the tedious out of proposal writing and the rest of our designers are actually sounding excited to write proposals for clients (what!). So many amazing ways that this program will change how we do things in all the best ways and save us so much time and money. We are all extremely happy that we jumped in on this and that it exists at all.

It is absolutely going to be revolutionary for us and the floral industry in general and we can't thank Ryan and the Stem Counter team enough for all the hard work that has been put into this. We hadn't even got to a point where we had used all the features in real life scenarios (like preparing a flower order or printing recipe sheets) and we were already singing their praises to fellow designers. Hah!! We 100% recommend giving Stem Counter a try. It's easy to learn and use and will be insanely beneficial to your business.

Best Product Ever!!

Comments: I really could go on and on and on about how much I love Stem Counter!!!! The features have definitely simplified the time I spend on everyday tasks allowing me to stay on budget, not over buy, develop a proposal by the end of the consultation, have better communication with my clients and wholesalers....like I said I could go on, so better yet sign up and see them for yourself!

Comments: As a relative newcomer to the wedding and event floral industry, I have been tearing my hair out over spreadsheets, quantities, pricing, and consolidating orders and have made a couple costly errors. Stemcounter has changed all that! An e mail from Florist Review appeared in my in box recently, inviting me to a free trial of Stemcounter. The rest is history! I am now creating beautifully formatted proposals with photos and myriad of great features. My brides are especially impressed with the live link feature, which allows them to view the proposal as a webpage and sign it right there. Mark up, recipes, order sheets, payments, it's all there! Thanks to stem counter, I can spend more time doing what I love and less time looking at numbers. Ryan O'Neil is quick to answer questions and has helped me become an effective Stemcounter user. I love this software and recommend it highly....gotta have it!

Pros: -Amazing tech support -Amalgamation of flowers through multiple events to prevent over-ordering -Easy to follow recipes -Individual rental and hard goods lists for each couple

Cons: Some bugs, all of which have been attended to. We got on early, so it was expected.... so it's not really a con.

Overall: Our switch to Stemcounter has been a massive and slightly daunting undertaking. During this switch, our staff of designers (not the most computer saavy) has received top level support from Ryan. Every single issue on our side and theirs has been remedied quickly and effectively. He's even been open to suggestions on how to improve the program.
That't not all! We've been using the program during our consultations and it has taken the guesswork out of pricing and ordering. We're expecting less wasted time & product (which means more profit) when we are 100% switched. Who wouldn't love that?

Recommendations to other buyers: Get it! We vetted multiple programs before Stemcounter and this one is by far the best.

Pros: All my quotes are in one spot. The customer service is always on top of it and love working with Ryan. I like that it does all of the calculations for me.

Cons: I have to input several different flowers and greenery. There is certain glitches at times with adding arrangements, payments, etc. It would be nice if it would connect to Square so they can be invoiced as well as sign their contract through the software. I feel for the price we pay that it should have these added features.

Overall: I truly love the ease and the recipe calculation. It is great since I just have one location for all of my quotes and I can track them there as well.

OUTSTANDING!

Pros: I like everything about this software, it has completely simplified the entire proposal, ordering, pricing process.

Cons: The credit card fee, we often need to add credit card fees after we book the job, and have to do it manually.

Overall: This software is a total game changer! It does everything for me. It takes all of the guesswork out of how much to order, pricing, everything.

Thanks so much Julie!! You were one of our first "official" customers after launch and we've love having you on board to help guide the product. We do have it on our list to add credit cards fees after. This is not the next item we're working on but the item after that! So hopefully it should help make your life easier there. :)

We Love Stemcounter!

Comments: Stemcounter is a great program for florists. Being a spreadsheet gal, this has saved me hours creating quotes, recipes, and orders. I love how we can contribute our ideas and feedback and they are very prompt at accommodating our needs.

Comments: I tried out a few other programs and what sold me was the customer service and ease of use. It has revolutionized the way I do business. My proposals are so professional and really easy to draft and adjust as needed. It helps me visually see where I was losing profit. I love how organized all my clients are now in one place.

Pros: I like how it the software and style of the proposal keeps getting more eye pleasing because I feel like what the proposal looks like matters to a bride. I also like how it does all of the math, the video tutorials, how each week I feel like there is a new feature that makes proposal faster. I love everything about it!

Cons: I wish it had a function where it would tell you how much your profit is for each wedding. So total before tax minus flowers and hardgoods and then it would show the user the profit.

Overall: I love stemcounter!! It cuts the time I usually spend on a proposal in half and it lets me update everything so quickly .

Recommendations to other buyers: no

Pros: Ease of use, low learning curve to get the hang of, constant updates on the back end that keep the frontend user experience running smoothly, and easy in which the customer sees the final product.

Cons: The only complaint I have is in the recipe section. To print out the arrangement recipes to hand to my employees, it takes a lot of paper, as one recipe prints per sheet. I'd love if there were a smaller version of this that took less paper - but that is only because I try to be as paper conscious as possible.

Overall: I had been complaining and whining about the lack of product on the market to help me run my business. I needed a way to make a beautiful proposal and do the numbers for ordering and pricing at the same time. Stemcounter has done this in spades. It took a very menacing task, which would take me hours and has cut it down to a matter of minutes. The best part, is that the time saved is not just on the proposal side, or stem counting side - it's also in ordering, being able to reallocate tasks to employees, and customer transparency.
Ryan has taken the time to talk to me in depth about changes and updates, and implemented so many of them. I cannot honestly imagine how my business would be running without it at this point.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a game changer for the floral industry. I am so glad they have taken this on.

Pros: The shopping lists.

Cons: Wish you could click on the photos to see them full size.

Overall: Really enjoy using this program. By putting in the stems when you write up the quote it lets you know how much an item really costs. No more under quoting yourself. It also helps when you go to order the flowers because you just generate a shopping list. The program is constantly evolving with suggestions from florist who use it. Great tech support.

Recommendations to other buyers: I tried a couple of others and this one really fit my needs and was really easy to use.

Appreciate the review! Glad we're able to make your life easier. The great news is that we just recently released a new feature where the public links you can now click on the photos and they will blow up to full size!!

Pros: Stem counter has helped me feel more organized in my design process and allows me to keep track with my events and flower orders. When a client has updates or changes I can make them and Stem Counter updates my shopping list and hard goods list at the same time, therefor saving me valuable time and energy. As I become more comfortable in the process I can spit out estimates much quicker based on previous designs and then add more details once someone decides to book. I use it daily and it is a huge and helpful part of how I operate my business.

Cons: Since it is a newer product that is continually being developed there are sometimes a few hiccups that occur. However these are solved really quickly and the team is quick to jump on any problems that arise and give you a temporary fix to your problems in the mean time and then often have the solution in a day or two which is not too bad.

Overall: I have really enjoyed using this software. I started using this initially as a better tester and have seen it develop and grow. They are working out the kinks and I think anyone using it now will really enjoy the experience, especially as new features are added and developed.

Recommendations to other buyers: Now that the software has been developed further I have realized items that I may have entered incorrectly when initially setting up my items and flowers etc. I would like to go make appropriate updates and changes to several items because of this but simply have not found the time yet. Those items are things like flowers and the numbers per bunch etc. When we first set it up my employee was not aware of the future feature for the shopping list so she just put 1 for several items and this causes trouble with the shopping list. This is at least easy to see and restive, I just need to resolve it in the original location. I also think there may be plans to have an inventory tracking system added at some point, although I have not asked Ryan about this yet. I do know that with my rental items it asks me how many I have of each item when I enter it in and this make me think that will be a further feature.

I appreciate your understanding of any hiccups as well. :) We go by the motto "every software has bugs...every company just doesn't admit it." We know that issues arise in a growing software so we seek to resolve those very quickly.

Awesome program!

Pros: I can attach pictures to the descriptions!

Cons: I wish the proposals looked a little more up to date, placement of the logo, email, etc. or it would be nice if we could format it ourselves.

Overall: Ryan is always super helpful and fast with responses! I feel more organized sending my brides a quote with this program. It also looks professional.

Recommendations to other buyers: I kind of like the old version better!!

Thanks so much for the review Lauren!! We love having you aboard. We hope you've had a chance to check out some of the features that we released in the last few days to make your proposals even more customizable! As we begin to release more features, it will start to fill in. :) The software is responsive so even if your brides are viewing a proposal on their phone, it will optimize to look great their screen. This is probably the biggest challenge that we have...how do we allow the software to do it's magic for tablets, phones, or desktop and still be able to let florists manually move design elements around? As we move forward, I promise this will be something we'll continue to look at!

Love it! Life is easier with Stemcounter.com

Pros: 1. Ease of creating and changing arrangements
2. Ability to add my own rental items
3. Professional looking proposal
4. Streamlined experience so that any of my employees can learn as input data and create the same proposal (that does the work for you)
5. It's always being updated with new features
6. Populating the flower order, the estimated cost and the excess....that's worth every penny by itself

Overall: See my pros; I love this software. It makes the business of running a floral/event design company so much more efficient.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you have a lot of your own items like we did, it does take some time in the beginning adding items and getting it tailored to your business, but once it's there, it makes everything easier and more efficient! Totally worth it.
