Monday, 19th July, 2021, Sittingbourne, UK: Affinitus, the market leading provider of business management software solutions for the fresh produce, food, and horticulture industries, today announces further new product enhancements for its Growmaster horticulture nursery management solution.

The major enhancements facilitate the bulk processing of orders via EDI, including scripted EDI Order Processing rules for how to process the received file and the automation of associated processes such as packaging selection, stock management and haulier selection. Scripts are available for multiple customer EDI formats, such as Pomona, Primrose, Trees Online, John Hancox and Marshalls, and others.

The scripted EDI processing rules can also trigger the automation of other associated processes, such as:

• Auto allocation of the order
• Auto selection and allocation of the required packaging
• Pick List creation
• Auto allocation of Haulier

Introducing the new functionality, Stuart Lawes, Director at Growmaster said, “The fully configurable EDI scripting features will enable our customers who receive high volumes of EDI sales orders in multiple formats to efficiently and quickly process these through the system whilst automating many of the variable time-consuming associated processes, saving time and resources, reducing errors, and improving productivity. We are continually improving the Growmaster solution based on customer requirements, and this is a great example of where we are able to enhance our solution with immediate impact and benefit for our customers”.
