Landscape & Nursery overview

Customers who visit a nursery or landscape yard know what to expect. The sales area is usually rather large, open, and can be a mixture of weather conditions.

Using a mobile device like the Idealpos W1/W2 tablet, you can walk around with your customer, adding the order to their account as you go. Sometimes delivery is required and you can get all the information during the sales process.

Printing labels and reading barcodes would also be a great feature to have. Use the W1/W2 to scan the items as you walk, or to enter the cubic measurement of ordered soils and landscaping supplies. Promotions would be instantly displayed as well as looking at orders yet to be delivered and stock that is currently on hand.

Customer Accounts

Customer Accounts

Customer accounts are generally an often used feature in nurseries and landscape yards. A lot of customers are actually other businesses buying repeatedly and other returning customers. Accounts allow you to offer customers the ability to take goods on the day without paying, and send them an invoice at the end of the month for the total goods purchased.

Customer accounts also work well with pending sales. Pending sales allows customers to order products where you can put together the order and it can then flagged as an item t be delivered or picked up at their convenience when it is fulfilled.

A good customer database enables you to easily see sales trends and anticipate sales based on purchase history. When you have your customer's contact details you can then add targeted marketing to your sales arsenal. Customers can be sent promotions such as coupons or gift vouchers which will have them coming back into your store for years to come.

Gift Vouchers

Gift Vouchers

Gift Vouchers can be sold through Idealpos and redeemed at a later date which you can decide. Gift vouchers enable you to keep track of purchased vouchers in case of loss or theft. Gift vouchers can be linked to your custom stationary, gift cards or Idealpos can print the voucher out of the receipt printer.

All Gift Vouchers are tracked and monitored through Idealpos, making it easy to replace a lost Gift Voucher.

Each time a Gift Voucher is used, the amount of the sale will be deducted from the original voucher, and a new voucher will be printed with the remaining balance. The expiry date will not change on the voucher unless it is edited by a Clerk.

Mobile Sales Tablet

Idealpos now supplies a mobile 7" tablet running Windows 8.1 that includes a full install of Idealpos 7. This allows you to record the sales and add customers all while walking around the yard. Pending sales can easily be entered and attached to customer accounts for delivery.

The tablet is a rugged design and is also IP54 water and dust proof. You can even add a barcode reader for quick identification of the products throughout your store.

Mobile Sales Tablet

Pending Sales

Pending sales are primarily used for when you are walking around the store taking an order which can then be flagged as pick-up or delivery and then added to a customer account. An A4 invoice can be printed to go with the items which can be signed as a delivery docket.

Pending sales are also very useful for saving a sale halfway through the process while more information is sought for the customer, or the customer looks for more goods to purchase.

Pending Sales

Stock Item Alert Levels

Stock item alert levels work by letting your staff know an item may be running low and can no longer be purchased, or needs to be ordered. Product buttons can display how much of each item is remaining in stock.

When an item gets to the alert level, a message is displayed on screen. This prevents disappointing customers by pre-empting the number you have to sell. It is very useful for promotions or if you only have a minimal quantity of an item in stock.
