Grain Accounting

Cloud ERP That Supports The Nation’s Agricultural Sector

 

Agriculture, food and related industries contribute more than $1 trillion to U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) annually, with America’s farms contributing $132.8 billion to this sum or roughly 1% of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP).

Within this sector, grain milling represents a growing industry that’s ripe for a technological overhaul. Most grain in the U.S. is used as animal feed, while slightly less is converted into ethanol.

 

Catering to the Agricultural Community

Focusing solely on NetSuite solutions, The Vested Group has worked with a number of grain milling operations and related agricultural entities. This expertise allows The Vested Group to address the unique set of challenges companies in this market segment face.

At the same time, The Vested Group is well-equipped to handle the demands and complexities that much larger companies face and can also facilitate a successful NetSuite implementation for this sector.

“Here at The Vested Group, we provide a high-level of service to agricultural companies whose existing systems keep them from growing and serving their customers.

We work with NetSuite to develop solutions like Grain Accounting, Inventory Traceability, Scale Integration and Commodity Management on a unified platform to provide a complete, scalable solution that helps our customers make order out of chaos.”

Companies take a “crawl, walk, run” approach when implementing a new system with The Vested Group. After the initial project is complete, there is usually a list of high value items that were excluded from Phase One due to reducing cost or risk concerns. Most companies never actually complete these tasks and as a result never fulfill the vision they expected.

The Vested Group addresses this gap with its dedicated NetSuite support practice - inVESTED. The inVESTED team of NetSuite consultants will help you add new, value added functionality post go-live to ensure you get the highest return on your NetSuite investment as possible.
