TSD IT, a Total Specific Solutions company, strengthens its position in the horticultural sector with the acquisition of Passfield Data Systems Ltd

Nieuwegein, 2 February 2022. Passfield Data Systems (“Passfield”), one of the UK’s leading horticultural nurseries solution suppliers, has joined TSD IT (“TSD”), a business unit of Total Specific Solutions (“TSS”). With this acquisition, TSD expands its position in the horticultural segment in the Netherlands and the UK.

Passfield’s fully integrated software system gives horticultural nurseries complete control over all their operations, from sales and stock to production planning. The solution suite can be configured to suit each nursery’s operations, hiding unnecessary features. It covers all sales and customer-related needs such as order processing, electronic trading, pricing and contact management. Its features cover all inventory and logistical needs such as purchasing, barcoding, plant labelling, production and stock control, including planning. And for internal and management processes, the solution offers work schedules, document design, security, and different reports and analyses.

Gert Koster, Business Unit Manager at TSD: “We also have a long presence in the UK and Ireland with our products (such as Wintree). Passfield Data Systems has an impressive list of clients, ranging from small family businesses to larger national suppliers, and from single-site to multi-site businesses. Many clients have been with them for more than 10 or even 20 years. That means they understand their vertical needs and challenges and have a customer-driven approach to their operations. TSD has been part of TSS for a few years now and knows the value of vertical market software ("VMS") solutions, catering to the needs of a particular group of customers.
We will work closely with Passfield to secure continuity for their customers and pass on our VMS knowledge. I look forward to the cooperation between TSD and Passfield in the English-speaking geographies and welcome Passfield’s committed team to TSS."

Joost van Haarlem, Portfolio Manager at TSS: "We are pleased to welcome one of the top nursery software suppliers of the United Kingdom and Ireland to TSS. I believe Passfield is a perfect match with TSS. Together with the Dutch company TSD, we now have a solid knowledge base of the horticultural sector.”

Tim Lamb, Business Manager of Passfield: "Over the years, we have developed a software solution that covers the needs of the horticultural sector, and we have built long-lasting relationships with our customers. To continue delivering the right products and services at the highest standards in the future, we are looking forward to our cooperation with TSD. By joining TSS and TSD, we now are part of a large group and have access to all the best practices and knowledge. This will give us the backing needed to continue delivering high standards to our clients.”
