Details Flowers Floral Software Vs. Curate.co Florist Proposal Software

Details Flowers is a florist proposal software similar to Curate that serves professional florists in running their weddings and events. We love the team at Details Flowers and definitely recommend florists to try out each floral proposal software before they settle. 

So what’s the difference between Details floral software and Curate florist software? We're similar in our pricing and have several features that are similar such as payment processing, stem counting, and proposal creation. Here’s what you should keep in mind if you’re choosing between Curate and Details Flowrs, or planning to switch from one service to the other. 

  1. Which is easier to edit?
    With Curate, you are able to directly edit items on your proposal. Curate used to have multiple steps and pages to get to the final proposals until we did a massive overhaul to allow users to directly work on what the final product would be.

  2. Which is better for new florists?
    Curate.co is focused on tools that assist professional designers and does not provide pre-built recipes. Details does provide some pre-built recipes for those wanting them.
  3. Which has a better floral library?
    Details has an extensive floral library with photos as well as pre-built recipes from other florists. Curate gives you access to the legendary Mayesh floral library as well as drag and drop directly from Pinterest for inspiration photos or for flower photos for your items.

  4. Which allow clients to view the proposals on their phones?
    With Curate, you're able to send proposals that optimize to your client's device: whether they are on a mobile phone, tablet, or desktop, they'll have a proposal that looks like it belongs there. Details Flowers and Curate both have the ability to generate the proposal as a pdf.

  5. Which allows you to combine multiple events into one wholesaler order?
    With Curate, you're able to combine all of your events from a given time frame into a single wholesaler order, which allows you to order exactly what you need and saves you a ton by not overordering. Details only allows you to submit one event to your wholesaler at a time.
  6. Which allows for recipe sharing?
    Details Flowers has the ability to add your recipes to a database to share with other floral companies. Both Curate.co and Details Flowers have a recipe section where users can save their reusable recipes. 

  7. Which allows multiple recipes on a single proposal item?
    In Curate, you're able to add multiple recipes to a single proposal item for things such as a head table.

  8. How do markups work in each?
    Details Flowers allows users to give specific markups for all items in different types of arrangements. Curate uses a proprietary system to allow florists to markup each arrangement with a specific markup and also allows hardgoods and florals to be marked up at different rates.

  9. How do you add event specifics to each?
    Details Flowers gives a wide variety of fields for users to insert the details. Curate takes a broader, modular approach giving users the ability to enter details into a larger event details section. Some users have said that Curate could use more fields for data and some users have said that Details has too many boxes for data that they don't want displayed. As an example, Details has specific field for "Gown Store" that is on every proposal. In Curate, if you wanted to list what store they got their gown from, you'd enter this data into the "Event Details" section along with other data that you'd like to include.
  10. Which is more affordable?
    Affordability is contingent upon what you need, so we encourage you to try both and see which fits better. Curate starts at $75/mo (for the annual account) with no additional fees for payment processing beyond the 2.9% + 0.30 charged by Stripe. Details starts at $99/mo with a % fee charged on invoices paid through the system with a discount for an annual account.

We hope this document helps. As a side note, we personally focus on building Curate and are giving these differences based on the best information we have available from users who have elaborated the differences. If we can update anything on here to make it more accurate, please comment below!
