TRIMS helps with Garden Centre Development at Wm Wheat
Wm Wheat & Son is very much a unique destination, combining traditional garden centre quality and values, and an expert florist service with an on-site nature trail around Bourne Pool.
Established in 1937 the Wheat family have built an enviable reputation for the highest quality plants, many grown on-site and others sourced from leading specialist growers. The biggest development at Wm Wheat over recent years has been the launch of their Waterside Café. Built from scratch at the side of the lovely Bourne Pool, the café provides customers and visitors with the chance to complete their visit with a meal or a snack from the mouth-watering selection of fine food and drinks.
When looking for an EPOS system for their business it was important to be able to provide café functionality (including kitchen order printing and drinks prep order printing) as well as a simple garden centre system for sales analysis, integrated accounting, integrated EFT and special voucher tendering.
Touchretail’s TRIMS system was installed prior to the café opening so that menu items with options and modifiers could all be set up prior to go-live. TRIMS Vision was set up with a daily scheduled report so that management could see quickly exactly what was popular to enable them to react quickly with menu choices.
The TRIMS framework provides Wm Wheat Garden Centre with the ability to combine their café functionality with targeted unit stock control and general garden centre inventory management and accounting - all in a single EPOS system.
