4 ways a garden centre will grow with point of sale software
Manage your garden centre from the front counter checkout to the back office with point of sale software.

Let's be honest, the plants sell themselves. But the buying process is not always an easy one for your customers, or your back office staff. Why not make managing your garden center easier with point of sale software?

POS software offers: 

  • software designed specifically for the garden centre industry
  • tighter inventory control 
  • accounting management
  • faster and more accurate transactions

Plant the seeds with point of sale software

Garden Centre POS software is specifically designed for a business that deals in growth, quite literally. From point of sale terminals to the accounting back office, the software can help your garden centre be managed more efficiently, so you can get back to tending your plants.

Add some fertilizer

Garden centres normally have a huge inventory, especially in springtime. Keeping track of your perennials from your annuals can be a tangled mess. Point of sale software can help you load your products quickly as well as organize, price and track them, and reduce out-of-stock situations.

Don’t forget to water

Need to process your payroll, create ledger and balance sheets, income and expense statements, and other documents? Accounting management software is an effortless way of managing your budget without the headache of number crunching.

Smell the flowers

It’s summer and you have a line-up of customers with carts stacked with bedding plants. You can speed up your checkout line and reduce costly errors by using a barcode scanner that plugs directly into your point of sale software. You can also check received shipments in easily. A multi-functional point of sale transaction screen can be used in either a touch or click format, which makes price checking and checkout that much quicker.
