Garden Connect to visit GLAS Show Ireland

Garden Connect is exhibiting at the GLAS Show at the Citywest Hotel in Dublin on the 21st of July for the 4th year in a row. GLAS is the biggest show for Irish garden centres so neither you or we can afford to miss this one, can we?

Garden Connect has been providing online services to many Irish garden centres for years. Among the growing customer base are garden centres like Fernhill in Athlone who have been running an e-commerce site with Garden Connect since 2012. Recently O’Mearas renewed their website with Garden Connect while Blackwater, Listowel and many others have been using the services of Garden Connect for years.

Flexible platform

One of the unique services Garden Connect offers is a fully integrated platform. In the back end, webshops and loyalty solutions can be integrated with any epos or CRM software. Garden Connect has got a team of 12 developers who are experienced making these integrations. While in the front end, integrations can be made with any payment provider, Amazon, Google Shopping and other platforms.

Garden centres are not tied down to one system but can pick the best of both worlds: an excellent epos system can be integrated with an excellent e-commerce platform.

It’s not about technique, however

The technique can be provided by a lot of companies but one of the USP’s Garden Connect offers to Irish garden centres is the content. With over 10,000 plant photos, hundreds of gardening tips, weekly news items and product range texts it’s easy to keep a website up to date: this saves time and will help to attract more customers.

Apart from content, the online marketing services of Garden Connect will help to get more traffic via Google, improve return on Google AdWords campaigns and increase conversion rates on webshops.

So whatever your ambition is: be sure to visit Garden Connect at the GLAS Show in July!
