Teleflora and Beneva De-Mystify Marketing with Floral Prodigy
LOS ANGELES - (Jan. 15, 2014) - Florists have long struggled with how best to spend their marketing dollars but that puzzle can now be solved thanks to an innovative new service offered exclusively by Teleflora and Beneva Solutions.
Teleflora and Beneva have joined forces to offer Teleflora members Floral Prodigy - an innovative tool that tracks a florist's marketing efforts to learn which ads, direct mail, online campaigns or any other marketing tactic generates the most orders.
"It's great to have a program that lets you track where your marketing dollars are being spent," said Bill Horeth, Kittelberger Florist & Gift. "Floral Prodigy is very easy to maneuver and the daily emails let you take a quick glimpse and have detailed reporting within seconds."
Floral Prodigy is the brainchild of Beneva Solutions's Founder Arthur Conforti, who first developed the system to track his own flower shop's marketing efforts. The tool, which can integrate with Teleflora's RTI point-of-sale system, provides florists with statistics including the number of phone calls, average order value and repeat customers from each marketing campaign. In addition to an easy-to-use reporting portal the system sends a daily email report to keep marketing results at the flower shop owner's fingertips.
"I could have never grown my companies to where they are today without this information," said Conforti.
Hortensia Trias, who owns Trias Flowers in Miami, has used Floral Prodigy for over six months. "When I first heard about it, I could hardly believe it. This marketing data was not something I could ever imagine having and now I wonder how I lived without it!"
"Floral Prodigy was built by a florist for florists," said Teleflora President Jeff Bennett. "Finally, our members have an easy way to track all their marketing efforts - from direct mail to the local newspaper to online campaigns. This product takes the guesswork out of marketing."
