Features

Define a product once

Each end product you sell is defined just one time with the following information. 

  1. End container
  2. Varieties (up to 5)
  3. Quantity of each variety/container
  4. Number of containers in a sell unit
  5. A UPC for pricing
Product price is defined by UPC

When a price is changed for a UPC it becomes the new price for every product under it. This comes in handy when there are many products, e.g., 4″ Premium Annuals, with the same UPC. 

Add as many plans as needed

End products can have multiple production plans.

Create one plan for sowing and another for plugs. Create plans with longer grow cycles for early season and shorter ones for late season.

Each grow plan has the following information:

  1. Expected survival rate
  2. A starting event
  3. Any transplanting events
  4. Release for sale event
  5. Duration of each event
  6. Parts used in each event*

*containers, trays, seeds, tags

Efficiency and simplicity

Once a product is defined and has at least one production plan things get easy. Human error is virtually eliminated.

Inventory lot creation of a product takes seconds. The calculation engine does all the heavy lifting for you.

Be sure to check out the Planning & Production feature to learn how easy they make planning, production and inventory control.

Planning
Lots created in the future are used for planning. Plan an entire season well in advance of its start date.
All the information you need for planning parts usage, production schedules, sale-ready dates and more is at your fingertips.
Scheduling reports
Finding out what’s scheduled for production next week or next year takes just a few seconds. Generate PDF reports quickly and easily to see which production events are upcoming and where they’ll occur.
Record scheduled events

The core production-oriented feature of Sembrent allows users to record production events like sowing, transplanting and releasing a product for sale.

You tell Sembrent how many products you want or expect for an event and the powerful calculation engine does all the heavy lifting.

Record unscheduled events

Record losses, reallocations and subsumptions. Just like with scheduled events, a history is kept of them that’s valuable in helping to make adjustments to expected survival rates by comparing expected rates to historical ones.

Undo mistakes

Users can undo recorded events that have mistakes in them until the event that follows it has been recorded. This usually leaves ample time to catch mistakes such as a wrong quantity entered for a loss.

One Lot, Many Purposes

Lots do so much more than serve as a way of tracking product inventory.

They’re used as placeholders for planning before production ever begins.

Then they’re used as production tools before the product becomes ready for sale.

A wealth of information that’s easy to read

Displaying information is one thing. Displaying information in an easy-to-read format is another.

Inventory lot records present a wealth of information in a clean, digestible manner.

Simple & fast to create

Even new users can create a lot in less than a minute. You choose a product, choose a plan for the product, enter the quantity you want to sell and the date or week when you want it to be ready.

That’s it! The information pulled from the product template and its plan is run through a fast & powerful calculation engine to take care of everything needed to produce the product on time.

Duplicating – even faster

If you grow the same product with multiple release for sale dates you can duplicate an existing lot. All that’s needed from you is a quantity and the date you want it to be ready.

Automatic archiving

Once the last product is shipped from a lot, it’s flagged to be archived in order to reduce clutter in the view of open lot records.

You determine how many days to wait before archiving so that returns can be handled quickly.

If a return is made to inventory after a lot is archived, no problem. The return will be recorded and cause the lot to be de-archived. It just takes a couple of seconds longer and that’s why we let you decide how many days to wait before archiving a closed lot.

Part types

Sembrent tracks inventory levels of containers, seeds, tags & trays.

Planned and actual quantities

Planned and actual quantities on hand are tracked for each part. Both levels are adjusted automatically when production events are recorded that use those parts (e.g., a transplant would adjust quantities for the container it’s moved to).

Planned quantities are created automatically for events in a lot when it’s created. 

Features for all part types

All part types have the following standard features:

  • Minimum quantity alerts
  • Specs for the part type
  • Vendors who carry the part
  • Manual adjustment of quantity on hand
  • History of usage/adjustments
  • Pending usage showing quantity & date planned
Features specific to containers & trays
  • A container can be paired with a tray
  • A tray can be paired with a container
Features specific to seeds
  • Specify quantity of seeds/cell for hand sowing
  • Specify quantity of seeds/cell for machine sowing
  • Specify seeder machine for seed
  • Specify vacuum tip size for machine sowing
Smart Flow

As part of Sembrent’s customization, the administrator configures the order of locations (e.g., greenhouses) and the sections within them.

When it’s time for transplants, quality control and picking for orders, workers follow the flow to reduce or even eliminate backtracking. A simple feature that can boost efficiency in production.

Pick orders as a team

Order picks can be divvied up between multiple people who can then be assigned to specific locations for doing order picks.

This cuts down on pick times for growers whose greenhouses or outdoor lots are spread out over a large area.

When combined with Smart Flow this can be a huge time saver.

Update Picks & Ships Live

With Sembrent’s iPad version, picks and ships can be recorded in real time as long as there’s a connection wi-fi or a mobile carrier.

We know that signals can a bit slow in some locations away from the office.  That’s why we engineered Sembrent for iPad to pass off all the heavy processing to the server, making it (and you) fast and efficient.

Filling Orders

Products that are sale ready are displayed in a sliding panel that hides when not needed.

Adding products to an order takes seconds. Order lines can be edited or deleted until an order is finalized for picking.

Inventory lots are updated automatically through orders

Adding or subtracting a product from an order will auto-update quantities and statuses of the lot it’s from.

Order confirmations

Generate detailed order confirmations as PDFs that can be emailed to customers any time prior to shipping.

Packing list

Generate detailed packing lists when all order line quantities are confirmed as shipped.

Invoicing

Invoices are generated with the click of a button. Items with the same UPC code are aggregated on a single invoice line, making invoices easy to read on large orders (the packing list can be used for line-by-line details).

Push invoices to Quickbooks

For users with the Pro subscription, invoices can be created with a single click and the invoice will be pushed to Quickbooks.

Invoice generation and the push to Quickbooks can also be done as two separate operations.

Database Encryption

Encryption At Rest uses AES 256-bit encryption to protect the entire database when it’s closed. Hackers who steal copies of it cannot access it in any way with the decryption password.

SSL Encryption

Data is protected in transit between the server and users using modern 256-bit encryption.

Multiple User Roles

Sembrent provides 5 levels of user permissions. In order of most to least privileges they are: 

  • Database Admin — Top level group for owners and high level managers. Users in this group can customize the way the software behaves.
  • Office Manager — The next level down, users in this group can do everything except configure software behavior of the software.
  • Production Manager — Users in this group can perform all production tasks including creating new products and inventory lots.
  • Sales — Users in this group can perform all sales related activities, but are restricted to only viewing most production related data.
  • Production Worker — Users assigned to this group can record production events and order fulfillment (picking & shipping) events.
Runs on Windows & Mac

Businesses with a mix of Windows and Mac computers will love the way Sembrent runs on both platforms.

Power users who like to use keyboard shortcuts to get the job done quickly will feel right at home using them on either platform.

Sembrent To Go for iPad

Ditch the paper and double data entry when working out in a greenhouse or in the field.

Sembrent To Go* lets you record production events and order fulfillment events in real time.

*requires Wi-Fi or mobile carrier signal

Database-specific customization

Database administrators can customize the following behaviors. 

  1. Phone number format
  2. Invoice rounding
  3. Number of days before ship date to pick product
  4. Number of days after lot closes before auto-archiving
  5. Option to auto-archive orders upon invoice creation or auto-archive later on a nightly schedule run by the server
User-specific customization

Individual users can personalize the following behaviors:

  1. Tooltip display
  2. Landing layout when opening
Error handling

Bugs due to programming errors will happen. It doesn’t matter what’s done to prevent them. And we try really hard to prevent them, but we’re realists. They’re going to happen no matter what.

That’s why we built a robust error checking and handling system that not only seeks out bugs and catches them, but also sends us detailed error notifications whenever one occurs.

Daily data verifications

Every day after business hours a data verification is run to look for any errors that may have occurred due to a failure in one of the many complex transactions that are run on a daily basis. This is done to alert us to data problems that might not be noticed by users for months.

We think of it like a smoke alarm in a home. We’ll probably never need it, we hope we’ll never need it, but if it ever sounds the alarm in a real life situation it’s going to be invaluable to us and our customers.

Low code means rapid development

Sembrent is built on the FileMaker platform, which is recognized as a leader in low code development platforms.

So, why should you care? It means that we’re spending less time coding and devoting more time to thinking about how we can maximize the value of features in the software.

It also means that we can address problems and tweak & develop features in a fraction of the time needed by developers working with high code platforms.

Built for speed

We test performance. A lot. We do it because it’s important to you and that means it’s important to us.

Whenever we develop a feature or a user interface we make absolutely sure that it performs without lags that become annoying to users. When we find something that runs or loads too slow for our liking, we figure out what’s causing it and fix it, even if it means taking a different approach.

Software patches get replaced

Tire and software patches have something in common. They fix the symptom by covering it, but the problem remains. That might work for tires but it’s not good for code.

We may deploy a patch to fix something quickly, but we’ll replace it with code that maintains the rock solid code foundation we’ll keep adding features to for years to come.

Preventing human error

Comprehensive validation testing of user input ensures that whatever a user tries to do is valid and can be done.

If it’s not, the action isn’t allowed to proceed and the user is notified of a problem they need to correct.
