The International Nursery Planning Solution

New VersionHortiBench is great planning software which assists you, the nursery or greenhouse manager, with the production- space- and financial planning in your nursery or greenhouse. HortiBench can reduce costs through better allocation and management of resources, reduced waste and higher utilisation. In mid term planning and daily resource allocation and job scheduling, HortiBench helps you to identify and quantify the best solution, providing an optimised plan of attack to achieve the best results for your nursery. HortiBench lets users maximise profits by identifying the best mix of products for fixed capacity nurseries. HortiBench is ideal in a situation where a nursery will grow multiple plant varieties, each with their own growing characteristics, requirements and market possibilities; and where nursery management has to make allocation decisions concerning their fixed capacity and capital-intensive greenhouse space, skilled staff and the use of costly energy resources

Modular

HortiBench is a modular software application which offers everything your nursery needs whether you are a small self employed grower or an international professional nursery with multiple sites. While the basic HortiBench Production Scheduler will suffice for the smaller nursery, we have a range of add-on modules for the bigger ones. The modularity also provides for a gradual learning curve and a spread financial investment

Simple to use

HortiBench has intelligent routines hidden behind a simple and intuitive user interface. HortiBench is developed for the grower and nursery manager who normally is not a computer expert. You therefore don't need to be a computer expert to use HortiBench because it has a visual and intuitive interface and is therefore very easy to use.
