Prior to installing Herbst Software ERP, they were running separate and disparate systems that did not communicate well with each other. When these legacy systems came up for renewal, Padraig Tully, Managing Director and senior management felt a new, fully integrated Business Management Solution was required. Central to these requirements, Tully Nurseries wanted a system with real-time information for all aspects of their business, an increase in transparency, and user friendly reporting with more accurate data. On the landscaping side, all of the job costing conducted was recorded on paper and of the biggest complaints was the use of manual picking lists that would not communicate with the EPOS system. This resulted in the method being prone to error due to its manual nature.
Padraig Tully – “Herbst Software’s awareness of our complex and unusual requirements, and their practical ability and desire to help solve these problems clinched it for me. Other suppliers either argued whether it was necessary or offered solutions that were unrealistic”
