Floral Computer Systems (FCS) has been in business since the late 1970’s when John Henderson, contracted to develop floral industry distribution and inventory control software assisting IBM Reps supplying computer hardware. FCS was incorporated in 1986 and restructured under Advanced Software Designs, Inc. in 2003.
We are fulfilling our goal to provide business owners and managers with tools to operate more efficiently, to improve business performance, reduce errors and streamline operations. All of this is done by using state of the art, high quality Software, Services and Hardware in a “Three-tier Market” that includes Growers/Suppliers, Wholesalers and Importers.
In 2003, our floral distribution software was re-written from the “ground-up” using the latest Microsoft technology, C# programming language and standard SQL database. Utilizing this structure, the software is designed for the growing floral industry, future technologies and planned expansion into other industries, such as the Produce Industry. Over the years, Floral Computer Systems gained recognition for the “Best New Product of the Year” award from the Wholesale Florist & Florist Supplier Association at two different conventions.
