Gardeners to benefit from EPoS

Joy of Plants_Logo_RGB_Hi-resGarden centre retailers continue to recognise the benefits of EPoS systems in helping them to provide sufficient product information.

With many products being plant based it is important that a garden centre can offer its customers, many of whom are keen gardeners, a good level of information on the plants that they are buying.

With this in mind CSY Retail Systems, a leading provider of EPoS systems to garden centres and nurseries in the UK, has added an in depth plant library by Joy of Plants to its Vector EPoS product.

CSY Retail Systems has developed a great understanding of how garden centres and nurseries sell their products with more than 60 using its product across the UK. The new plant library, which is growing month by month, will improve plant information services, giving garden retailers access to descriptions and photos of over 9,800 UK plants. Benefits include the ability to send plant care information by email to loyalty scheme members when they purchase plants, as well as the ability to print plant care cards from the till.

CSY Retail Systems says that using Joy of Plants’ plant information will make it easier for garden centres to set up their plant list in a CSY Vector system, as well as keep existing garden centres systems up to date with new plants as they arrive on the market. Ross Pierrepont, Managing Director of CSY Retail Systems comments: “As CSY continue to extend their reach into the Garden Centre sector, we really want to offer them the best tools available to run their business. Joy of Plants is an innovative provider of information to the sector and working with them to build functionality straight into Vector has been great. I know our customers are going to see a real benefit in both customer service and improved operations.”

Joy of Plants provides plant information services to Garden Centres, Nurseries and Horticulture Colleges in the UK and Ireland. Its library claims to contain full details and photos for every plant created by a professional gardener with over 20 years of experience.
