General accounting software works well for retail and service businesses, but lacks inventory management required for farming. FarmBooster is online accounting specialized for crop farmers. A purely online package, FarmBooster runs in the cloud with nothing to download. No backup necessary, and no installation or upgrades. Any device with Internet connectivity works with FarmBooster.
“Many farmers today use programs such as QuickBooks, which isn’t always a good fit on agriculture operations,” says Clement Gutel, CEO of FarmBooster. “We built FarmBooster from the ground up with farmers in mind. What is my exact cost per bushel, or acre, or enterprise? We let you know right where the inputs are going and give detailed reports on where the money is going. It’s the ease of Quickbooks, but specifically designed for farmers.”
Simplicity and ease-of-use is a big part of FarmBooster, says Gutel. Pricing is still in flux, but roughly will be a few cents per acre. There are no contracts or hidden fees and a grower can start and stop anytime with FarmBooster. Data sharing with consultants, accountants, or others is available, but growers have total control over data.
“Does a farmer know the exact production costs per bushel of his different enterprises? Money is often left on the table,” Gutel notes. “If you want to know exact costs and track inventory real-time, FarmBooster is a way to get uncomplicated insights.”
