Does your current software give your lawn and garden business the visibility and flexibility you need to be responsive and competitive, or is outdated software negatively impacting business growth and excellent service?
The retail world is becoming more complex. eCommerce has grown in the U.S.—from $42 billion to $236 billion in the last decade*—and lifestyle shopping is raising customer expectations. Having the right retail management software solution—one that can keep up with your business needs and the increasing pace of technology—is critical.
Given the recent advancements in technology—and higher customer expectations—perhaps it’s time to ask if your retail management software is up to the task of nurturing and managing your growth over the coming decade.

1. Excessive labor costs and hiring gaps
2. Operational inefficiencies
Every lawn and garden retailer wants to win—to be profitable, to grow, to be regarded as the go-to source in their community for quality products and service. Not every retailer will come out on top, though, and those who do have a secret. That “secret sauce” is what all of us strive to identify. Those who’ve done it already know there’s not a single recipe. Why? Markets, economies, locations, and competition vary—and so do retailers’ aspirations.
