Enhancements to farm management platform give growers greater visibility to financial performance
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., July 8, 2020 -- Conservis, the global leader in enterprise farm management software announces enhanced financial management capabilities to its robust platform. Developed in collaboration with Rabo AgriFinance, the Financial Management suite connects the dots between an operation’s field data and its finances. The result delivers a real-time, economic, bird’s-eye view of the farming operation.
“With all the uncertainty and volatility created by COVID-19, there has never been a more critical time for growers to understand the direct economic impact of their decisions,” says Sherman Black, CEO at Conservis. “We’re fortunate to have partnered with the world’s largest food and ag lender, providing us visibility into what ag lenders need. On the flip side, we understand what growers want because we’ve spent the last decade developing farm management software with our clients to harness data to improve efficiency and profit. The fruits of this partnership deliver a new way of doing business that benefits everyone.”
Conservis’ Financial Management suite enables growers to create complete and dynamic financial plans necessary to:
● Gain visibility to field-level plans, operational plans, loan and land management.
● Make profitable in-season operational and marketing decisions quickly with less potential for error than traditional methods.
● Streamline access to credit and financial tools.
● Confidently align with business partners.
Ryan Christensen, General Manager of BKR Farms in Grace, Idaho, has experience with the enhanced Conservis platform. “In a few clicks, I can send something to my Rabo AgriFinance lender at any point in time, and they’ll have everything they need to see where I’m at, and I have everything I need to make smarter, more timely decisions,” says Christensen. “The report automation took me no time, and I was able to have more meaningful and analytical conversations than any I’ve had with a lender before.”

“Accurate, timely, relevant information is the holy grail to ag lenders,” says Curt Hudnutt, head of Rabo AgriFinance. “Even as precision ag adoption has proliferated, the industry has struggled to collect, analyze and share data, especially when a need for capital arises mid-year. It’s great to see our partnership with Conservis produce a tangible advancement in a farm’s ability to easily translate its data into financial insights. We know and trust that reports generated by our clients through Conservis accounts are high-quality and reliable.”
