Grower Vertical

What can you invest in? … Technology — invest in ways to drive efficiencies through technology, like ERP systems to track your cost of doing business.”

Abe Van Wingerden, Metrolina Greenhouses
Grower Talks Magazine, January 2012

Is your business growing?

What software system did Abe Van Wingerden invest in? In 2006, Metrolina Greenhouses partnered with Practical Software Solutions to improve their Sage ERP software. Our relationship grew, and together we developed Grower Vertical, the greenhouse software specifically geared toward the horticulture industry.

  • Is your business suffering from disjointed or outdated software systems?
  • Is your reporting suffering because your system isn't fully implemented or integrated?
  • Are you struggling with a small vendor who has growing pains of their own?

Most systems available for the horticulture industry lack complete integration between financials, production, inventory, shipping, and other business processes. Nor are they backed and supported by a $2 billion software company like Sage.

Access your entire system anytime, anywhere

Grower Vertical is available in a web-native format, which allows your entire business management system to be accessed anytime, anywhere from any connected device with a browser. This means all of your business can be mobile, instead of just a handful of apps. Whether you grow and sell ornamentals, plugs or vegetables, Grower Vertical gives you the capabilities to handle financials, inventory, shipping, logistics planning, production, and wireless warehouse management all in one system.

Grower Vertical is available exclusively from Practical Software Solutions. Click here to request literature or click here for more information about Grower Vertical.
