‘Dozens of companies can collect and present data, but few can make sense of them – and convert sense making into hands-on, sustainable improvement.’

Jeroen van der Hulst, Managing Director of FlowerWatch

Identify even the smallest weaknesses in your chain

In order to take your performance to the next level, you need to analyse your current practice – and see what’s going well and what needs fixing. Our experience shows that even seemingly insignificant performance ‘leaks’ can have a major impact on quality, vase life and margins. Our specialized monitoring teams conduct on-site tests and interviews for customers around the world, providing them with razor-sharp insight into every key aspect of performance. With FlowerWatch Monitoring, you can identify even the smallest problems – in-house as well as up and down your supply chain.

Performed on location at your sites, our Quality Controls are tailored to your specifications. The results are compared with the benchmark FlowerWatch Quality Standards. This means you will be able to recognise the inefficiencies that hinder your growth – as well as identifying changes and new tools you need to improve. You can access the QC results in your own database environment, which includes a user-friendly dashboard for quick-and-easy insight into every aspect of your supply chain performance

Cold Chain Analysis

With graphic overviews, optional airplane-proof tracking systems, and your own service platform, our Cold Chain Analyses will help you pinpoint every weakness in your cold chain, all the way from farm to florist. 

With graphic overviews, optional airplane-proof tracking systems, and your own service platform, our Cold Chain Analyses will help you pinpoint every weakness in your cold chain, all the way from farm to florist. We work with a Score Card, highlighting the hotspots on route, and letting you know exactly where and how you can enhance your cold chain. Our analyses are based on the 500-degree hour norm that underpins the FlowerWatch Quality Standards, a proposed industry norm that guarantees longer vase-life and is based on extensive scientific and field research.

Vase-Life Tests

Our Vase-Life Tests are a reliable and highly compelling way of visualising the results of supply chain performance. 

Our Vase-Life Tests are a reliable and highly compelling way of visualising the results of supply chain performance. Using our high-quality chain simulation models, including vase-life video’s, you can gauge how each specific link in your chain affects the vase-life of your flowers. With access to your own database, you can use the exhaustive data we collect to reach a higher level of performance – and thereby increase and guarantee vase-life.

Facility audits

By examining every facility in your supply chain, we can recognise inefficiencies impacting the quality of your flowers and potted plants. 

By examining every facility in your supply chain, we can recognise inefficiencies impacting the quality of your flowers and potted plants. Think, for example, of pack houses, cold rooms, airport facilities and so on. The performance of each facility is benchmarked against our detailed FlowerWatch Quality Standards, showing you how standardisation will improve your supply chain performance. And with our zero-point measurement, you will have a clear starting point. With that, you can begin to upgrade your supply chain straight away. Many of our customers soon discover that relatively simple measures can have a huge overall impact.
