Garden centres looking to run a full Electronic Point of Sale (EPoS) or labelling system without the effort of building a plant database can now do so with the help of Easitill (April, 2014).
The company’s expert EPoS team has created a database containing more than 20,000 plant records and descriptions and 15,000 photographs to help garden centres create plant labels and EPoS systems.
Managing Director, Rob Gardner explained: “Our database includes ornamentals, trees, shrubs, herbs, climbers, aquatics, vegetables, fruits, ferns, wildflowers, orchids, palms, cacti, mosses, hedging and houseplants.
“We’ve created the resource so that garden centres can run a full EPoS System without the effort of building a plant product database. The Plant Database System can be used in conjunction with our new drag and drop label designer software within Easitill EPoS or as a free-standing labelling system.
“Any garden centres looking to set up a website quickly can use our plant descriptions and images to create their own plant catalogue or garden shop online.”
The plant labels can be provided as an integrated package or separately.
Easitill are the UK distributor for Floralabels who are the leading horticultural label media manufacturer for great quality and durability.
The family-run business, has assisted garden centres with their EPoS requirements since 1988.
It helps small to medium-sized garden centres and plant nurseries with EPoS, website, mobile and mail order solutions to improve the profitability and quality of their business operations.
Rob added: “Garden centres can use our plant information as it is or edit it. Our database is a great way to save time and money for anyone looking at setting up an online route to market.”
Easitill’s EPoS and labelling software is created in-house specifically for garden centres and plant nurseries.
