FloristWare Is Pleased To Announce The James Lowe
Memorial Award

In his honor, and with the blessing of his family, FloristWare is pleased to announce the James Lowe Memorial Award: $2,500 in financial support to help a designer attend the AIFD Symposium.

Wilmington DE – January 28, 2018 – In the fall of 2018 the flower industry lost a beloved
member when James L. Lowe, AIFD, CFD of Minot ND passed away far too soon.

James was a loving son and devoted friend, a talented designer, and an inspiration to the
LGBTQ community in his home town. He made this industry a better and more welcoming place
for so many by generously volunteering his time to both AIFD and the North Dakota State
Florists Association. He never sought the spotlight and always gave more than he took.

AIFD veterans knew James as a dedicated member that gave tirelessly to the organization.
Countless new inductees have a story about James making them feel welcome, and
encouraging them to participate as volunteers. His vendors recall him as an incredibly smart
operator brimming with new ideas, and as a champion of the North Dakota State Florists
Association and their annual convention.

“James was a very talented and genuine person. His dedication to the industry was wonderful
and he always brought 110% to the table. He will be missed.” says J Robbin Yelverton AAF,
AIFD, CF, CFD, PFCI.

In his honor, and with the blessing of his family, FloristWare – a software system for florists
– is pleased to announce the James Lowe Symposium Scholarship, awarding $2,500 in
financial support to help a floral designer attend the AIFD Symposium. The goal of this award is
to encourage others to follow James’ example.

“Those of us lucky enough to have known James will never forget him, or what he taught
us about how to approach this industry. We hope to help ensure that the next generation
know his name and emulate the spirit with which he approached the flower business.”
explains Mark Anderson of FloristWare.

With that in mind this award is open to anyone who is:

1. Attending the 2019 AIFD Symposium
2. An active volunteer with AIFD.
3. An active volunteer with one other association.

The award will take the form of one Symposium registration (valued at approximately $1,000)
and $1,500 to help cover expenses – a total of approximately $2,500.

The winner will be chosen at random from a pool of seven finalists. To win a participant must
first become part of this pool.

Interested designers can enter this pool in one of two ways:

• Through an online design contest, held during March, where each participant can submit
one design. The five participants with the most votes will advance to the pool of finalists.
• Winning the Professional Division of either of the 2019 MFA or WUMFA Design Contests by
accumulating the highest cumulative point score from the three professional division design
categories.

The five participants with the most votes in the online contest will join the winners of the
MFA/WUMFA design contests to form the pool of seven finalists.
2019 MFA Design Competition
2019 WUMFA Design Competition

One winner will be chosen at random from this pool of seven and announced on April 4, 2019.

Simply, Brandon and his team at Epic provide the finest service in existence for floral websites. Their expertise, creativity, and knowledge of what attracts customers and converts sales is second to none. If you run a florist, don't use a lame wire service cookie-cutter site! Brandon will make you more money!! I've used Epic for several years now and wouldn't consider any other option.

HI Rachel! First of all, as we all get busy and don’t always take the time to say THANKS, we wanted to tell you that we are very pleased with the work you are doing and we are noticing that we are getting more traffic! Just yesterday, we added two new customers who came through our website! This week we had 6 calls from prospective customers that found us via Google and currently in discussions with the other 4 companies to quote their business! Last week we gained another large account so everything is working! We are so happy we chose you guys as a partner and excited to see where the future takes us!Sincerely, Jason and Carolyn Anderson- Anderson Pallet and Crate, Sedalia, CO

I chose Epic for their experience in the Floral industry. I wanted a custom site that continued our existing look but brought in the many backend features of Big Commerce. The four month process ended up taking eight but I spent a lot of time testing and getting any issues resolved before we went live. Epic worked closely with me and communicated well on fixes and time frames for everything. Only been two weeks but we have experience a significant increase in average order and Brandon has worked closely with MAS to integrate our site seamlessly. Orders come in quicker, enabling us spend less time cleaning up incoming orders.My experience was coming from Yahoo Store hosting to Big Commerce. I highly recommend you give Epic a shot but ultimately, be prepared to spend time testing your site before you go live. This extra four months allowed us to go live with very minor issues.Greg

The increased functionality, user friendly experience, and data tracking that an Epic website offers is incredible. Thanks again to Brandon and his team for a job well done!
