The Clover SmartCharts templates create bar, line and pie charts. The charts use SmartCharts™, which consists of charts and key performance indicators (KPIs) that provide instant snapshots of vital business metrics and help you visually improve the communication of business information. All SmartCharts are included at no additional cost and can easily be integrated with Clover.
