About Us

Arbré Technologies, Inc. is a Wisconsin-based company that uses state-of-the-art software and innovative hardware to help horticultural businesses and other green asset companies efficiently manage inventory — improving workflows, eliminating waste, reducing time, decreasing costs, and improving margins.

Arbré Tech is committed to creating the best systems for all types of growing operations — nurseries, greenhouses, tree farms, sugarcane plantations, and more — while integrating with financial management systems.

We also customize solutions for unique nursery needs. Arbré Nursery, which is accessible via web application, is just one example of our innovative software solutions.

The data collected by Arbré software lets customers compare data through key industry reports to make better business decisions and improve overall performance — paving the way for a leaner business model and stronger bottom line.

Best of all, Arbré Tech’s hardware products — RFID scanners, rugged RFID tags, high-performance cable ties, tablets, and other components — seamlessly integrate with our software solutions.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide customers with innovative software and RFID hardware that reduce labor costs and improve margins, building your bottom line, helping you weather economic ebbs and flows, and letting you focus on what matters.

The result is peace of mind for you and your business, preparing you for economic uncertainty, succession planning, and an increasingly competitive landscape.

We believe we can revolutionize green asset management, live out our core values, and be the dominant problem-solver for horticulture inventory management challenges – including labor shortages, cost of labor, and margin compression. Arbré can give horticulture businesses the confidence to overcome any challenge, weather any storm, and exceed shareholder expectations.
