We have branched out to help garden centres up their exposure in increasingly competitive markets.
Managing Director, Rob Gardner said: “We have seen more and more demand for this and with our background in helping garden centres achieve the best from their businesses through IT, we felt it was a good fit for us.
“Whether it is a promotional video for a website or a video to show in-store we’re now able to help.”
The new multimedia team will be headed up by Dave Everett who has studied fine art, film and media studies and production.
Rob concluded: “Video is a great tool to help with sales as it can be used to show how a product works or how to do something like re-potting a houseplant or planting a tree.
“They are a great way of extending your customer base as these days the general public is sharing more video footage than ever via social media. You can also use them to entertain your customers and if you can do this you’re halfway to selling to them, as people still buy from those they like even if they are buying online.”
Our EPoS software is created in-house specifically for garden centres and plant nurseries.

A bug in software used by web servers could have exposed anyone visiting sites they hosted to spying and eavesdropping, say researchers.
|The Bug has been named "Heartbleed"|
The bug is in a software library used in servers, operating systems and email and instant messaging systems.
Called OpenSSL the software is supposed to protect sensitive data as it travels back and forth.
The bug in OpenSSL was discovered by researchers working for Google and security firm Codenomicon.
The "serious vulnerability" allowed anyone to read chunks of memory in servers supposedly protected with the flawed version of OpenSSL. Via this route, attackers could get at the secret keys used to scramble data as it passes between a server and its users.
To help people check their systems some security researchers have produced tools that help people work out if they are running vulnerable versions of OpenSSL.
How does this affect Easitill Website Customers?
Firstly Easitill Ecommerce sites do not store, transmit or collect sensitive data such as credit card details.
These are all handled directly through the payments gateways we use.
These sites are secure and encrypted and meet PCI DSS compliance themselves.
The payment gateway providers our websites use are:
We at Easitill have run the checks for vunerabilities using the available tools and can confirm that the above 5 Payment Gateway Servers are not vunerable to this flaw.
