Increased Efficiency and Experience with FieldAlytics-AgVend Integration
The FieldAlytics – AgVend collaboration enables a seamless sharing of FieldAlytics Plans directly to any retailer’s AgVend-built Grower Portal
FieldAlytics, a comprehensive solution that centralizes field logistics and planning from EFC Systems, and AgVend, the leader in providing white-label digital engagement platforms for ag retailers, announced today their launch of a new integration option for their shared agricultural retail partners.
In today’s ultra-competitive world, ag retailers are tasked with meeting the producer of tomorrow wherever and whenever they want to do business. The FieldAlytics-AgVend connectivity enables sales agronomists to build plans in the FieldAlytics tool and then share them with customers in their retailer’s AgVend-built Grower Portal. For growers, this means quicker and easier access to key planning and decisioning resources within their trusted retailer’s native mobile app. For the ag retailer, this eliminates the need for double entry cutting down on errors and [saving the average sales rep 30hrs during peak planning season].
“Based on a recent survey of our retailers’ customers, we found that the single most important thing that producers want in their retailer’s Grower Portal is all their operation’s information in one, centralized location,” says Alexander Reichert, co-founder and CEO of AgVend. ”In this new stage of ag technology, walled-gardens are being replaced by open platforms. EFC and AgVend find ourselves on the leading edge of this effort choosing collaboration over competition and seeking efficiencies for their retailers vs. creating redundancies.”
EFC Systems President & Founder, Ernie Chappell states, “Providing innovative solutions to ag retailers and growers is what we do every day. For over 30 years, we’ve been dedicated to improving efficiencies for ag retailers and profitability for growers. The FieldAlytics – AgVend integration is the first stage in working together to better serve our customers and improve their digital customer experience.”
FieldAlytics and AgVend plan to explore future opportunities for collaboration with the shared goal of improving the digital experience for their ag retail customers and those retailers’ growers.
