Sage ERP

What a ‘true’ ERP system for growers means

My name is Baroness Anastasia Genevieve Vanderbilt-Rockefeller, and I am the Supreme Ruler of the Known Universe. Ok, you got me. That’s not my real name. And despite my sometimes over-inflated ego, that’s not my title either — although when I tell people I’m the marketing director for a software… Read more »

What do concrete and greenhouse growers have in common?

For those who follow our social media (Twitter, Facebook, Linked In, this blog, or what have you), you may have raised an eyebrow this week. The last few weeks, we’ve been all about Grower Vertical, as our Sage ERP team exhibited at MANTS. We then followed some of our friends… Read more »

Gearing up for the OFA Short Course

ERP serves a wide range of companies

Have you ever thought of a punchline the next day? Don’t you just hate that? Last November, Greg Lafferty and I had dinner with some of the great folks from the OFA, the leading horticulture educational association in the United States. They were in town for their Grow & Sell… Read more »
