We believe that garden centres are now destination retailers which have to offer a mixture of retail, leisure, events and education to fully meet the expectations of their customers, all while managing a rotation of products and themes according to the time of year.

With more than 70 garden centres and retail nurseries using Swan’s solutions, we fully understand the requirements of this sector. The Swan Retail solution offers a high standard of performance and functionality, covering virtually every aspect of your garden centre business, increasing your control both in-store and online. The EPoS system easily handles mixed merchandise ranging from pay-and-take items such as live plants to large, special order items such as greenhouses with all their options.
