This week the Tradefair and IFTF opened their doors again to exhibitors and public after 2 years. Of course we were there too! It was good to be back again and to see and speak to many acquaintances.
With a warm standby server you are always assured of a copy of the production data in a separate database on another machine. The production server can also be relieved of heavy read queries that are required for BI tools, for example. With this module you can therefore secure your data within the Postgres database on a second server, and also relieve the production server because all read queries are handled by the warm standby server.
After a year of absence due to covid-19, it's almost time again: from 3 to 5 November the IFTF and the Tradefair will take place again in Vijfhuizen and Aalsmeer. They are the networking events in the floriculture sector that you want to attend, and a great meeting place for companies in the sector.
Now that the summer period is slowly over, we notice that more questions appear about Floriday and its current status. We’ll give you a short update.
It's been a while since we featured an addon on the website. That certainly doesn't mean we're sitting still! Our web development department is busy developing FloriShop on a daily basis. A large part of our customer base uses this webshop to sell to customers all over the world. More and more smart addons are being developed and we use the latest techniques to translate customer wishes into a clear and reliable e-commerce environment.
You may have already had a demo from one of our colleagues or received information before: the FloriShop Dashboard. Research shows that organizations that use a dashboard make better decisions and therefore achieve better results. Florisoft developed the FloriShop Dashboard: this dashboard allows you to easily apply dashboard components in the CMS.
We started a customer satisfaction survey at the end of last year. This is an important study for us to find out where we can make improvements in our organization. In this blog, we will keep you informed of the steps we are taking as a result of your feedback and the results of the research. This week: #2: How do you see Florisoft? Which values do you consider important and which values do you assign to us?
As you know, we started a customer satisfaction survey at the end of last year. This is an important study for us to find out where we can make improvements in our organization.
We have received the results from the research agency and we are going to work with the feedback. We’ll keep you informed as much as possible via this blog on the website and via social media.
Perhaps you already read it in the press release shared by Floriday earlier today: the end date of March 31 has been postponed for 100% Digital. The implementation requires a new timeline.
It has been a while since we gave an update on Floriday. Floriday is still in full development with several improvements to the existing features, and new features are being added. Read more about the progress here.
Our web development department developed new screens in the CMS that allow administrators to manage pages and categories in FloriShop. We also introduce a brand new functionality in the form of CMS Links.
Recently a dashboard has become available in the Sales module with the aim of informing the seller about the status and purchasing behavior of the customers. Read more about this functionality and all possibilities here!
In a few weeks you will make a switch from the current auction process to Floriday. What does this mean for you as a Florisoft user?
You may have already read about it last week, for example via the Royal Flora Holland website. Recently, various organizations have sent news messages and emails containing incorrect information about the settlement of direct trade as of January 1, 2021. We’ll give you more information for growers and buyers.
Recently Florisoft has been working on the development of a brand new photo booth project that has now been taken into use at Royal Flora Holland. At the end of September the project went live and the feedback is positive! Florisoft is now able to photograph large tow carts in a (very) short time.
It has been a while since we posted a note about how Florisoft is dealing with the measures against the coronavirus. Hereby we give you a short update.
A while ago we started a pilot for the implementation of a Florisoft license in collaboration with Decorum. A very nice license!
Great news! Florisoft has recently become a certified partner of Twinfield. Twinfield Accounting provides you with clear real-time insight into your financial administration. This way you’re able to make the right decisions for your company and your customers!
New filter interface option
Good news from our web development department:
For FloriShop they recently designed a new stock filter interface option with filter cards and dropdowns.
Webshop users focus on the product they are logging in for as quickly as possible. To make it even easier for the user, this new way of displaying your filters is now integrated in FloriShop. The filters are fast, user-friendly and clear. This way you can shop optimally efficiently: for example, you can skip, undo or combine choices.
New design CMS!
Our webdevelopment department has applied a new design to our CMS; even more beautiful than it already was! The new design is based on the style of our website.
FloriShop addon Notification Centre
With the new FloriShop addon * Pop-up, Chat & Notification Center * you have an important tool to communicate quickly and directly with customers. The seller can come into contact with the customer in an accessible way. The opportunity to chat offers added value in terms of customer service ánd customer satisfaction!
Collaboration Gebr. Noort
Every partnership we start with our customers is unique, and they are all valuable to us. There are projects that we are extra proud of. Because a nice collaboration has been created, a good interaction between Florisoft and the customer was established, or because we delivered thoughtful custom work. One such collaboration that we are particularly proud of is the one with Gebr. Noort Flowerexport.
Accessibility by phone
For a while, we have been looking for a way to improve the accessibility of the support department. From week 20 changes will take place by contacting Florisoft by telephone.

Good news! The FloriShop addon CMS is now expanded with SEO sitemapping functionality.

Last week the RIVM announced further precautionary actions because of the outbreak of the Corona virus. Because of this, Florisoft has decided to take steps to prevend spreading of the virus. We will not make live appointments with customers and other relations until April 6th.
Holstein Flowers launches FloriShop App
Gerbera grower Holstein Flowers from de Lier recently launched a FloriShop App in collaboration with Florisoft. With the app, customers always and everywhere have an up-to-date overview of the gerbera range.
IFTF and Tradefair 2019
Last week, like every year, we were at the Tradefair in Aalsmeer and the IFTF in Vijfhuizen. We had busy days! We met many connections and made new contacts.
Business to consumer

The FloriShop addon Mobile Photo makes it possible to set up parcel photos directly from your smartphone. Immediately upload to your webshop from your smartphone!
Since 2019 we have completely switched to PostgreSQL. PostgreSQL is an Enterprise level database system and has been voted the best database system by developers worldwide. Due to the large active community, PostgreSQL will have a rapid development, which will keep Florisoft fast and stable.
Florisoft is expanding
With effect from 1 January 2020, we are expanding and, in addition to our current location at Rijnsburgerweg 108, we will also be working in the office building at number 106.
Because we are always evolving and to further optimize our growth, we choose for more space and more options. The choice to also move into the former premises of JAN Accountancy was a logical step and a unique opportunity; with more and more employees, we are growing from the current building.
From 1 June 2019, CBS Send will no longer be supported: the submission method has changed. We have made a clear manual for you, step by step indicating how you can make a declaration.
