PLANTACUS THE FIRST MULTI-VENDOR GARDENING MARKETPLACE IN FINLAND
Both owners are well established in the gardening and horticultural field. Tuomas has been developing his expertise through the award-winning and long-standing family gardening business, Heimosen Puutarha. And Pasi has been working as a horticulture lecturer in the well-known producers of gardening and landscaping professionals, Häme University of Applied Sciences in Finland. Their combined experiences are more than sufficient, but they still needed a partner to bring their digital marketplace alive.
Plantacus not only chose to work with Fiare for Agora solution’s features, but also for our extensive knowledge of the marketplace and digital industry. Fiare has been working together with the owners from the beginning. Primarily, we focused on identifying and capitalising on significant opportunities for their market. We proceeded with solution development and integrations to fit their requirements.
“When we were looking for a solution provider, we chose Fiare because they provide a customisable ready-made store platform and their extensive online marketplace experience.”
Since its launch, a growing number of suppliers have started to publish their summer flowers and plants. Other horticultural products are also available such as seeds, berries, horticultural machinery, equipment, supplies and services.
An E-commerce platform integrated with safe and secure payment options and supported by local shipping providers.
Plantacus and Fiare swiftly shifted the marketplace strategy when a health epidemic began. The initial plan to first cater to the wholesale market instantly adapted to include the retail market. The website was quickly launched in a short period.
Fiare’s expertise and vast experience in the marketplace industry enabled Plantacus’ business potential online.
