Davidson Richards and Garden Connect to develop Scan & Go App

Davidson Richards and Garden Connect have agreed to a partnership for joint solutions.

One of the first services the companies will release is an OpSuite Scan & Go App powered by Garden Connect. It will allow garden centre customers to scan their own shopping cart and to pay on their mobile.
Keith Bateman, Director of Davidson Richards explains how this app will work. “Allowing customers to scan their own purchases in-store and pay on phones transforms the experience. It removes the need to stand and queue at a till point.
“The Scan & Go App can be used with the customer still scanning their own purchases and at the payment stage. They can visit any till point using our OpSuite retail management and EpoS solution.
“The entire customer basket is processed at the till with a scan of the phone and the payment processed as usual.”
Edwin Meijer, the founder of Garden Connect, is excited with this opportunity. “We were in touch with Davidson Richards last year when one of our customers requested to integrate their webshop with OpSuite.
“Having gone so well, we started talking with Keith about a closer partnership. It could benefit many of our mutual customers.”
“We’re both aware some companies are doing everything: EPOS and online marketing. But EPOS is not something you can do as a side job, nor is online marketing.
“So having a partnership between our two companies will give garden centres the best of both worlds.”
