It's always exciting to announce a new customer, but with Smith Gardens, it adds a new dimension to Webalo's no-code app generation platform: meeting the needs of a complex supply chain and supporting a frontline workforce with a mobile application that will improve their customer service, reduce overstock and inventory shortfalls, and proactively manage stocking levels and movements.
Smith Gardens is a 117-year-old family-run wholesale grower. They grow annuals and perennials for home improvement centers and mass-merchant retailers, such as the Home Depot and Lowe's, in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska and Western Canada. Their "always growing, always learning" philosophy drove their selection of Webalo as a technology platform for improving their supply chain performance from seed to sale.
Webalo today announced their inclusion in Gartner's November 2018 Research Note, Hype Cycle for Frontline Worker Technologies, 2018. As Gartner states, "frontline workers' daily activities and workflows tend to be time-and task-centric, requiring different solutions than for knowledge workers...Gartner predicts that up to 70% of mobile and endpoint investments will be aimed at enabling frontline workers over the next five years."
