The standard procedure for agri-businesses processing their transactions is to re-key orders submitted via email into an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.
With this comes multiple risks: human error can have potentially costly ramifications and easily go undiscovered, draining resources and costing customer trust.
These benefits then affect the wider industry. By better managing rebates and encouraging retailers to sell certain products, business have a clear view and can drive customer behaviour. In turn, this helps ag retailers deliver better management of their agronomists, supporting them with a suite of products and knowledge informed by crop insight, product availability and what needs to be sold.
