Davidson Richards and Garden Connect to work together on customer scan-and-go project

Davidson Richards and Garden Connect have signed a deal to develop joint solutions, one of the first of which is an app allowing garden centre customers to scan their own shopping cart and to pay on their mobile.


Keith Bateman (pictured, far left), director of Davidson Richards, said: “Giving your customers the ability to scan their own purchases in-store and then pay on their phones transforms their retail experience, removing the need to stand and queue at a till point.  Alternatively, the Scan & Go App can be used with the customer still scanning their own purchases and at the payment stage, they can be requested to visit any till point using our OpSuite retail management and EpoS solution and the entire customer basket can be processed at the till with a single scan of their phone and the payment processed as usual. "


Edwin Meijer (second left), founder of Garden Connect, is excited by the opportunity: "We were in touch with Davidson Richards last year when one of our customers requested to integrate their webshop with OpSuite. Because it went so well, we started talking with Keith about a closer partnership since 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."
