We have a long established and growing customer base of garden centres who see us as a trusted partner for their EPOS needs. We are also proud members of the HTA.
Garden centres benefit from our wealth of experience in the sector and our unparalleled support. We have a number of unique or rarely seen features which make our EPOS systems stand out from the crowd.
We are a UK based supplier using our own in-house developed and supported software. We prefer to keep our userbase small to provide an intimate level of support via our remote help desk, on-site trainers and UK wide engineers.Get a Quote
Our ProEPOS EPOS systems offer a number of key advantages over the competition.
Our national database of over 2 million barcode includes over 300 suppliers to the horticultural sector. Many unknown barcodes will pre-populate on first scan.
On-prem data model for resilience and security, with cloud access for remote workers.
A broad choice of integrated credit and debit card processing options at highly competitive rates.
Full installation, on-site training and maintenance through our UK wide engineering team.
Not only do we use best in breed hardware and our own in-house developed software, our solutions are designed with security and resilience in mind.
Our hybrid architecture model provides the robustness of on-prem data combined with the flexibility and freedom of cloud access. With our EPOS systems, users have the best of both worlds.
We have a growing number of larger, multi-site garden centre retailers who benefit from our own bespoke, designed and developed, multi-master data replication system, unmatched in the industry.
Most garden centres comprise different retail areas and a cafe/restaurant. Our ProEPOS software provides dedicated retail and hospitality interfaces to suit the location of the individual terminal.
Even within different sections of the store, individual POS terminals can have different screen layouts to suit the needs of the specific counter where they are located (such as the farm shop, garden supplies, etc).
We also offer self service solutions too, with cabinets produced from a substainable source.
Our systems support the issue and redemption of HTA gift cards both in the retail and hospitality (cafe / restaurant) interfaces of the software.
Both ePay and EML issued gift cards used by the HTA gift card scheme are supported.
Gift card activity is fully reportable.
Centres can also issue their own in-house gift cards through the EPOS.
A fully featured customer accounts facility within the POS screen provides a wealth of features:
• Layaway sales
• Monthly invoicing / account statements
• Pre-paid / pre-loaded accounts
• Automatic discounting by customer type (eg. VIP, landscaper, etc)
• Support for regular standing orders
In addition, ProEPOS provides a delivery and call-off feature for managing and tracking stock that has been purchased but not yet taken by the customer.
Our EPOS systems can produce barcode labels for retail items without a barcode, plant pots, etc along with shelf edge tickets and plant passports.
Direct thermal, thermal transfer, desktop and mid-range printers are available to suit the type & volume of labels being printed.
The EPOS will also print to standard, full-colour A4 printers.
A powerful, built in loyalty scheme provides great flexibility in how points are awarded and how/when they can be redeemed.
Supports both earn-as-you-spend and periodic point rewards. Bonus points days for different customer types are also supported (eg. double points for OAP's on Wednesday).
Bounce-back vouchers at the bottom of receipts encourage return visits.
A complete suite of features for managing stock in intricate detail, including segregation of front-of-house and backroom stock to aid with re-stocking.
Shelf-life tracking allows the system to monitor lines susceptible to waste and warn staff when dates are close to expiry.
Predictive ordering provides for Just-In-Time stock deliveries to minimise stock holding, maximise sales and reduce waste.
A comprehensive suite of over 200 reports, with the facility to export to PDF or Excel.
Report scheduling allows reports to be automatically generated and emailed to key staff members on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
Upload sales to the cloud to use as a datasource in Excel and other apps for more bespoke analysis.
Multi-channel sales are fully supported through native integrations with Shopify & WooCommerce.
For retailers using different or bespoke shopping carts, ProEPOS provides a comprehensive web API which developers can use to quickly and easily integrate the EPOS and website.
Our home shopping app provides an app based shopping experience for garden centres wishing to offer a delivery or click-and-collect service in addition to (or instead of) a web presence for their customers.
We have a white-label version of the app which we can brand for the individual retailer and publish to the app stores as a dedicated shopping app for your garden centre.
App based shopping increases loyalty and encourages return custom beyond that of a website.
Orders are printed on the till receipt printer and are automatically imported into the sales transaction data on the EPOS system for reporting and stock control purposes.
Flexibility through both a native back office and a cloud back-office (web portal) depending on requirements.
Our native back office software is a fully capable app that runs on both Windows and Mac. Can be used locally on-site or remotely through zero-configuration network link.
Our cloud back office provides access to most back office functions through any suitable web browser on any capable device (PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone) without the need to install any software on the device itself.
For those centres needing to track the purchase and sale of plants inline with plant passport requirements, our EPOS systems include a built-in feature for this which includes printing of the requisite labels.
Easily track the flow of individual plants through the business and onward to sale.
Our plant passports are searchable, reportable and auditable.
ProEPOS natively integrates with Xero, QuickBooks Online and Sage to upload sales directly to these packages. Uploading sales in this way ensures compliance with Making Tax Digital legislation which no longer permits manual entry of figures between systems.
We can also provide custom integrations with other accounting or ERP systems, such as Microsoft Dynamics. Please contact us to discuss.
From single centre setups to estates comprising multiple sites, ProEPOS will grow with your business.
We have a number of multi-site garden centres enjoying the benefits of our enterprise solution for retail.
Our proprietory cloud replication system, coupled with the on-prem data model, gives you the best of both worlds in terms of reliability, data security and scalability.
Your EPOS system records audio and video footage of the sales area. Age refusals are recorded and archived for Trading Standards.
Your EPOS system records prevailing weather conditions against all sales for each day. Turns your EPOS system into a powerful tool for predicitive ordering dependent on weather.
