NetPS is designed to fit into your website, and we do most of the work!
Even though NetPS is powered by Northscaping's proprietary plant search engine technology, it's designed not to resemble Northscaping at all! This has been designed to be YOUR search, on YOUR website, with YOUR colors, graphics and corporate identity, so that your customers will know this as YOUR tool, not ours. The only people who need to know that we are involved are you and us - plus a little tag at the bottom of the pages just in case another garden center is interested.
+ what we do
Our designers are good at integrating NetPS into your website - it's what they do. They have numerous configuration settings at their disposal that can be tailored to match your identity; text fonts, sizes and colors; background colors, bars and images; single or dual-column layouts, alternating row colors, and more. They have different ways to frame NetPS into your website so that it looks like any other page on your site. They do the work to make it look good and make it look right. That's why we charge a small one-time setup and integration fee; it covers the costs of us aligning this with your corporate identity, fitting it into your website and getting it to your complete satisfaction.
+ what you do
Your existing website will require some minor modifications to accommodate NetPS. At a minimum, you'll need to add a link in your navigation menu which takes your customers to your Plant Finder tool. You should also consider adding a feature promo or "splash" graphic introducing and promoting the new service to your customers. These and a couple of other minor technical tweaks should be easily handled by your web developer. You must also cross-reference your current plant inventory against the NetPS plant database. We recommend updating your inventory with your new plant selections at least once per year, usually in late winter. Other than that, this tool pretty much runs itself!
