TSD IT develops software solutions for companies in the horticultural and nursery stock sectors. Their flagship WinTree software suite helps companies with business administration, project management, customer relationship management, accounting, plant and stock data management and landscaping in Europe.
TSD IT has more than 20 clients across the UK, including growers, traders, tree nurseries and cash and carry companies, such as Cheviot Trees, Coles Nurseries, Boningale, Europlants and Four Oaks Cash and Carry. The company have also recently added Nicholsons Nurseries to their list of users.
The number of plants within Cheviot’s species batches is often in the thousands, which requires a high level of traceability and control to comply with Forestry Reproductive Material (FRM) legislation. Cheviot is also expanding at its Berwick site.
Cheviot Trees office manager Katherine Short said in-house preparation of data and staff training helped when changing their software to WinTree: "The intuitive nature of the software meant that we quickly had almost all aspects up and running within a matter of weeks – all down to a plain-English approach from the TSD team. Within days of the install, we knew we’d made the right decision. Our colleagues were able to complete tasks within a fraction of the time."
