Founded in 1864 by Edwin Hillier, the company continued to expand through the 19th and 20th centuries and gained a Royal Warrant of Appointment from the HRH the Prince of Wales in 1935 and then replaced by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.

Today Hillier owns and manages a network of 17 garden centre located across the South of England. 157 years and counting, Hiller garden centres continues to provide a wide range of home grown plants and everything you need for your garden.

Review Systems Digital Signage Ltd was asked to supplied and install large bespoke design touch screen information systems in to an initial three locations. In collaboration with Terri Jones and her “Joy of Plants “, team, these digital systems provide customers with an interactive experience collating a wealth of information of stocked plants, tree and shrubs, sold in the Hillier garden centres.

The bright displays, allow customers to educate themselves and find tips on the best plant types for their garden. Located in a prominent position at the nursery entrances and within the plant areas of the garden centres, the interactive displays are an unmissable and provide a complementary addition to the plant section in each of the centres.

Helpful information is available for example, on soil type, planting location, plant sizes and sun/shade consideration, allowing customers to make an informed choice, prior to purchasing. The display systems also allow staff to advise customers with ease by providing them with a visual encyclopaedia of plant knowledge at their fingertips.

The displays are also used for internal promotions, like the Hillier Gardening club, gift cards and other helpful information and tips for visitors to take on board and assist them while shopping.

Our own cloud-based digital signage software digitalsignage.NET drives the dynamic content to the displays from a central location. The easy to use software, with powerful features, provide a fast a secure way to regularly update the displays with relevant eye catching content. Statistical data is being used to track the usage of the Plant Finder application. This allows Hillier to analyse the data that can be used for their display content strategy moving forward.

Optional paid advertisements are available in some location, given local businesses the opportunity to showcase their products and services in a high footfall environment.
