Visit an industrial plant - a mine, power generation plant or manufacturing facility for example - and automation, mechanical and digital, is everywhere. Millions of dollars are invested in machinery, robotics, enterprise and industrial software systems that run and operate a plant. However, chat with the workforce, the frontline workers themselves, and you’ll find that they’re largely disconnected from all of this automation – when they do their job, it's paper, voice or experience-based and rarely digitized.
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.
