Kato’s Nursery is a wholesale grower of ornamental nursery stock located in Abbotsford British Columbia and has been providing retail garden centres and landscapers with high-quality ornamental nursery products for over 50 years. Kato’s Nursery was operating on a mostly manual administrative process for managing customer orders. As an evolving business, Kato’s Nursery recognized their need to streamline how customers ordered their products and saw how technology could offer them new opportunities as a business.
OrderEase made the transition t online ordering seamless and easy. In the same format as their print catalog, Kato's was able to get a digital catalog live and begin online transactions immediately.
Kato's wanted to further improve their customer experience by redeveloping their website and linking it directly to their online catalog, thanks to OrderEase.
Kato's quickly became an industry leader in technology and customer service. The OrderEase software allowed Kato's real-time data insights into inventory, sales and performance of reps.
Like most nurseries, the wholesale orders Kato’s receives can come through fax, phone, or email. To effectively manage their order fulfillment, they needed a more streamlined ordering process with less manual data entry for their internal operations and their customers.
OrderEase's software presented several attractive benefits to address Kato's Nurseries identified needs:
Revolutionizing the Ordering Process
Kato’s knew that they needed to help their customers transition to a new way of order. OrderEase’s ActivCatalog provided their customers with the convenience of making transactions online while maintaining the familiar print catalog format they are used to. Partnering with OrderEase as their online ordering solution was an ideal solution because it offered a better ordering process for their valued customers. They wanted to ensure that all of their customers could access their pricing and inventory availability while placing their orders online.
Modernizing Their Website
After finding success with online ordering, Kato’s Nursery wanted to further invest in improving their customer's experience and chose OrderEase to design their new website, linking it directly to their online catalog. Their modern website now beautifully showcases their products and provides their customers direct access to their online ordering service.
