Nursery Sales & Inventory is the most comprehensive software on the
market for managing a wholesale plant growing or re-wholesale operation.
As you view the feature descriptions in this website, you will find that we
have every feature offered by the most expensive software systems.  In
addition, the features listed below are not available anywhere else.  We
hope you will give us a chance to do a live demo with one of our
management consultants to explain further.
 
This feature gathers data from your sales records, accounting module and production work schedule
to offer specific net profit for each individual plant size and grade sold in any accounting year. 
Click the accounting button (above) to view screen shots.
When plant material is first propagated, we forecast a future saleable inventory based upon a normal
size and grade distribution for this particular plant species.  We then split that normal growth range of
plant product across the number of sale seasons that harvest would normally cover.  This yields a
future inventory forecast that can be used by customers and sales staff.  In addition, we offer a
planning module that allows you to set total desired sale quantities for a future period.  We then match
propagated material to your future need and provide a list of plant material that should be in
production to meet these inventory goals. Click the inventory button (above) to view screen shots.
Just prior to shipping season, when grading is complete and our final inventory numbers are in,
we typically need to review oversold plant sizes and grades.  You can change several orders from one
screen.  Your changes are remembered and printed so that clients can receive an order status update
and/or be phoned to confirm that order changes are OK.  This feature has trimmed weeks off the time
required for this process at some nurseries.  Click the sales button (above) to view screen shots or;
better yet, call and let us show it to you.
Other software may claim to be customizable, BUT try asking them to do it!  It’s not what they do. 
At ACS we have learned that "off-the-shelf" software rarely matches individual business operations. 
Each business has a unique way of tracking inventory and dealing with customer accounts.  We
have at least a dozen distinctly different versions of our nursery application that can be modified to
accommodate individual business differences. 
The best way to get the look & feel of our Nursery Sales & Inventory Management is to call for a demo. 
Here is a sample taste...
Many rudimentary inventory systems are developed in Microsoft Excel.  While Excel allows a complete
list view of your data, it does not allow sorting or reporting.  It’s just a list.  We have retained that
complete data list approach to viewing your data and have given you a whole new level of sort & report
capability.
The screen below is a typical inventory screen and it is typical of the look & feel of most screen displays
in the software.  The inventory data columns that display are selected by the user in program setup. 
There is a wide variety of data that can optionally display.
”Drill down” detail is available by double clicking most any number in the data display.  For example,
these 3 columns show inventory graded, forecast (but not yet graded) and on order via a PO from
another grower.  If the user double clicks the count detail, another screen pops up to show the physical
location of the inventory.  A double click on purchase shows what vendor(s) have our pending orders.
Our unique filtering toolbar allows us to show any columns or data within the columns.  We can then
click to export that filtered data set to an Excel spreadsheet, if desired, or to one of dozens of pre-
defined report layouts located in the reports list in the lower right corner of nearly every screen.
Buttons like these open supplemental data processing screens and are included when your operation indicates they are needed.
No two nurseries (that we work with) have inventory screens that look alike.  Each company assembles the data in a somewhat different
manner.  We built this system to expect differences.
