Making the switch to WinTree®
The decision to switch from one computer system to another might be a big one, but the switchover itself should be simple. Such was the case in 2017 at Van Arnhem Nursery, a Surrey-based grower of hardy nursery stock for the wholesale marketplace.

allgrowth Limited is a little different from your usual tree nursery in the UK (and not just because of it's lower case "a"). allgrowth is spearheaded by Peter Middlicott who has over 25 years' tree production ans supply experience gleaned from a number of the big hitters in the industry.
It is almost a year to the day since one of the UK's leading wholesale growers and suppliers of perennials, shrubs, bulbs and grasses to supermarkets made the switch to WinTree®. "We recognised the potential suitablity of WinTree® for us from the earliest stage - and this was reinforced after a visit to see it in action at Coles Nurseries."
The Greenwood Group is a wholesale nursery group supplying plants, hedging, trees and landscaping supplies to the landscaping industry.
Based on four production sites, two on the South Coast near Chichester and two in the North West in Cheshire, the company has been growing and trading for over 30 years.
“It’s the only piece of software we have where we feel it is genuinely helping our business develop. It is logical, intuitive and adaptable – we can change parameters to make things easier, either globally or per user, too.”
"Bron And Sons Nursery Company is one of the larger container growers in western Canada. We have over 100 acres in production and over 115 employees. We ship our plants right across Canada and into several states in the U.S.A. Bringing on new software is never an easy task for any company…especially when the software has been developed in Europe!!
"WinTree® has clearly got great flexibility, allowing us to grow stock, move stock and adapt to customer, market and production demands."
“For us, WinTree® has made the whole process smooth and swift” comments Griffiths. “We find it easy to use and anyone can get to grips with it with minimal training.” He goes on to commend the software on its “visibility and transparency”, allowing them to manage their stock and transactions from order input to invoice.
“All of our transactional paperwork and customer documentation are consistent and look very professional. Overall, we recognise the strengths and stability of WinTree® software and realise that there are many functions within it we are yet to uncover!”
“The programme’s strengths as a nursery management system are immediately apparent – right through the sales order process and into the content and professional appearance of internal and external documentation.”
“We have found the WinTree® software has great flexibility, a factor which is paramount to contend with our rapidly changing market conditions and customer-specific demands.”
“Our business is now too complex to function without WinTree®! It means we can use agency staff effectively and allows us to give a clear structure to new starters. Picking accuracy is greatly improved and it saves re-inventing the wheel every day!”
“We benefited immediately from the more robust, traceable and reliable data management that WinTree® afforded us,” says Blakey. “It streamlined and automated processes and greatly improved our documentation – and the ease in which we could generate it.”
