A lot of talk is happening right now in our industry about wire services, order gathers and the general condition of the flower business. I have many opinions on where we were and where we are going but this blog really isn't about that. My main concern right now is being able to handle my customers outgoing flower orders.
Anyway, the point of this is that I am concerned that those of us truly local florists are all using a system that is supposed to allow us to send orders to each other but that system is being made useless. What are we going to do about it? Honestly, I have no idea. I have already talked to my Teleflora rep about how to block certain shop codes such as certain order gatherers but do I want to do that year round? Probably not. If anyone out there has an answer to this problem, I'd love to hear it.
