Clover Network Inc., a Fiserv company, is building a large, open-architecture, point-of-sale solution aimed at small- and medium-sized business owners. Fiserv is planning to use Clover to create the largest open architecture operating system for commerce-enabling solutions and applications for all types of business owners. Jeff Dickerson heads up the California-based company.
Clover offers a variety of software and bundled software/hardware point-of-sale solutions, including the Clover Station Solo, Clover Station Duo, Clover Mini, Clover Go, and Clover Flex. Clover uses Android as the client platform, which enables the use of inexpensive hardware.
Customers include small- and medium-sized enterprises, such as quick-service and full-service restaurants, retail stores, professional services, personal services, and home and field services.
Clover is a leading point-of-sale provider for small- and medium-sized enterprises in the United States and is expanding globally with business in Argentina, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.

In January 2019, Fiserv acquired First Data. John Beatty served as CEO until the end of 2020, at which point Jeff Dickerson took over as head of the company.
