Anything that makes a laborious, time consuming process faster and more efficient has to be good news! Our raison d’etre at Acopia has always been to see procurement from the client’s side of the table and we wanted to not only bring tremendous value to this area but to actually transform it from a tedious time consuming task to a positive time and cost saving activity. Working closely with our clients, listening to their challenges, we were able to understand and see first hand how to simplify the whole process and develop a bespoke ordering platform, My Acopia, designed for garden centres just like yours in mind.
All in one place with My Acopia
Multi-centred garden brands such as Dobbies are already using our platform, but the platform is equally at home with single site centres. No matter the size of your organisation – saving precious time and costs will be important to you. What My Acopia allows you to do is have complete visibility of our spend on all your consumables. From the trolleys and baskets, to the plant ticketing and labeling, to your irrigation systems to your point of sale materials such as plant sleeves and carry home trays – it’s all in one place for easy stock control and re-ordering. We can also supply your cafe and staff rest room with catering supplies – no more petty cash receipts to process and maverick or unexpected spending to deal with! Hassle free procurement!
How does it work?
Spend on consumables, or goods not for resale, can represent up to 25% of your operating costs so it’s important to know you are making the most of this investment. Unlocking the associated costs around procurement and gaining that control over all spend will be key for you. It puts you in the driving seat by being able to see all your products in one place, authorise all spend and decline orders where necessary. You can make repeat orders and have these delivered directly to store location exactly when it’s needed.
My Acopia also allows you to free up precious management time and resource – allowing you to get on with running your business.
