IBM Express Advantage Works for IBM Business Partners and Customers
Gro-Rite, a family-owned garden center, wanted to continue to grow its business in the face of increasingly fierce competition from mega-retailers. To compete, the small store needed to differentiate itself through unparalleled customer service; however, the company's checkout process failed to support this goal. Gro-Rite now offers a superior shopping experience, made possible by a new checkout solution--implemented by IBM Business Partner Systems Technology Group. "Our competitive edge is that we grow and sell our own plants, said Ken Vande Vrede, general manager, Gro-Rite. "But the IBM Express portfolio of solutions allows us to provide better, faster service, and that's been a critical advantage for us in competing against the big garden chains."
