Zone Mapping

Arbré lets users create and edit locations like zones, blocks, greenhouses, yards, or farms that hold different inventory types. Items are given a unique RFID matched to the precise location of inventory. GPS coordinates can also be recorded for efficient nursery navigation.

Integrations for Sales

We offer dynamic order building — ultra-simple revision and substitution processes. Sales are auto-populated in QuickBooks or other integrated systems to eliminate duplicate entry. Estimates, tag docs, dig reports, and invoices are generated at the click of a button.

Field Ready

Our cloud-based application functions real-time, whether you’re on a desktop in the office or in the field taking live inventory counts on your tablet or phone. The in-field app, available on the App Store, is uniquely streamlined to require minimal clicks and navigation.

Instant Visibility

Users scan the RFID tag to populate the item profile on mobile devices for fingertip access to editable data. Weatherproof scanners read RFID tags within feet or inches, depending on the use case. Long-range antennas can be used for autonomous applications like RFID portals, ATV mounts, or drones.

Costing Tools

Depending on tagging method, the inventory’s unique profile can be accessed through the zone map. The profile displays various statistics in addition to a customizable status used to differentiate inventory for sale from inventory not for sale. User-specified statistics are tracked for better costing.

Business Intelligence

Precision inventory with RFID provides invaluable data that our BI tool can drill into with a few clicks. BI helps with production planning, forecasting, and benchmarking, yielding better decision-making across all business functions — moving your business from being precise to being predictive.

Frequently Asked Questions

With anything new, there can be a learning curve. We’re here to help you take full advantage of the best inventory tracking methods no matter your tech savvy.

Is my nursery too small to see the value in an RFID tracking solution?

The Arbré Nursery RFID Inventory Management System is scalable for nurseries of all sizes. This includes nurseries as small as 20,000 trees to those with 500,000 or more. The system can track individual trees or inventory units, rows, bundles, pallets or batches depending on volumes and anticipated ROI.

Is it worth tracking the individual trees or units of inventory?

Maximum efficiency and results are realized when tracking individual inventory units, especially for finish growers that handle half-inch and above stock. Seedling growers, or growers handling shrubs or other small units, find value in tracking inventory by row, zone, farm, bundle or pallet. The system caters to each scenario as needed.

Is the system flexible enough to work with different types of growers such as seedling growers, liner producers or finish growers?

Yes, the system caters to each type of grower. Arbré Nursery is unique in that it can track inventory in batches or single IDs. For example, a finish grower may find value in tracking each individual tree; whereas, a seedling grower or liner producer will find it more economical to track inventory counts per row, block or zone. Arbré Nursery offers solutions for each type of grower.

Is the system user-friendly and does it come in different languages?

We have the best in-field application in the industry. We’ve streamlined the flow of information to make this mobile application ultra user-friendly. The mobile responsive design populates only the most essential features you need to use when performing specific tasks. The app also displays multiple languages depending on user preferences.

Can the system be used in different types of growing operations such as pot-in-pot, ball and burlap, or bare root?

Yes, the system can add value to all types of growing operations. At the end of the day, inventory is inventory regardless of the operations or flow of goods and information. Arbré Nursery is unique in that its flexible RFID technology can be applied to all growing types to track and manage unique information and inventory flows.

How can I justify the initial up-front cost of purchasing the software, RFID tags, and scanners?

The initial cost can be challenging to overcome; however, with flexible financing options and guaranteed long-term returns, the cost can be easily justified. For example, users realize time savings as high as 80% in manual processes such as calipering. The up-front cost, when spread over several years, is equivalent to pennies per tree.
