Kwekerij Wouters is one of the largest nurseries producing annual potted and bedding plants in the Netherlands. Based in the Dutch province of Overijssel, its glasshouses are home to primroses, violets, fuchsias, geraniums, chrysanthemums, seed and plant cuttings, and many other products. Since 2010, Wouters has been using ALFA PRO IT systems. This was when the company started to automate its cash & carry activities. Later we were able to equip this arm of its operations with a webshop.
Kwekerij Wouters worked for many years with our tried and trusted hand-held terminals to their complete satisfaction. However, in order to improve efficiency yet further, the company recently transitioned to modern tablets for this process. Amongst other things, tablets give direct access to the web and therefore to email and webshops. Furthermore, anything sold at the sales meeting can be immediately processed in your administrative and stock systems, which mean they are always up-to-date.
Kwekerij Wouters’ early impressions of this new way of working are positive. ‘We thought long and hard before we took the decision,’ Gouke explains. ‘But up to now we’ve had no reason to regret this. It gives us great savings in time every time an order is made.’
