The ABECAS™ Insight Greenhouse and Nursery Management Software is an enterprise-level system that provides full operations, management and accounting support for horticultural and floricultural businesses. It is particularly suited to growing, wholesale, re-wholesale, and landscaper supply nurseries and greenhouses. Being modular and configurable, you build the system to meet your requirements.
It allows you to begin with sales, purchasing and inventory and lead into production management and end with the financial and cost accounting associated with all aspects of your business. It is strong on business rules and with flexible reporting, management and analytical tools, and dashboards, the system provides the capabilities required by progressive and demanding managers.
Production Management allows you to manage the production process from planning through production into “ready” inventory. Inventory provides product availability at an item or lot level with quantities updated based on the transactions. Lots allow you to track by ready date, planting batch, plant source, size, and other defining attributes. Sales orders can be taken as quotes or orders, confirmed, picked and invoiced. At the same time, commissions and payables against sales can be generated and deliveries managed. Drop shipments, consignment sales, specialized pricing, freight, royalties, EDI with trading partners, web access, handhelds, and other features are available. Purchasing can be managed through requisitions or directly as purchase orders with receipts immediately updating inventory availability and cost. Accounting includes Receivables and Payables along with General Ledger and Cost Accounting. Payroll is useful in collecting and allocating labor and equipment costs.
Typically, ABECAS™ Insight Software is implemented on an incremental basis. This allows the initial modules to be set up and implemented to the needs of the business before moving onto the next modules. From a resource and risk perspective, this spreads the process and is more manageable. In addition, this gives more time to review your business processes and to re-engineer for improved performance.
Nurseries and greenhouses deal with unique production, sales and distribution requirements. These require software tailored to the industry with implementation and on-going support by knowledgeable specialists. Argos Software has the green industry experience to meet these requirements.
