I began using Trimble software in 2011, but before that I was using Trimble monitors and displays beginning in 2009.
I began using QuickBooks for my financial reporting and SMS software for my mapping. We’ve been mapping since 2002, so I was familiar with SMS software. I was using a lot of spreadsheets to keep track of things I couldn’t do with my financial software for field planning.
I was looking for something that would be fully integrated because it was difficult to piece all that together. I began my search for software that would really accomplish the integration of everything so we didn’t have double entry of data and run the risk of errors.
In that search I looked at Trimble Ag and saw it was fully integrated so I made the switch.
I’ll have to say it was quite a learning curve for me because it did so much. We use a software, we write our own scripts for fertility and we write our own scripts for corn and soy beans. The software really did a good job with that. It’s easy to use in that respect.
Trimble was doing things in the industry as far as technology was concerned long before anyone else had even thought about it.
My favorite feature of Trimble Ag Software would be the record keeping portion. As the food safety coordinator, that’s one of ht largest parts of my job and the most time consuming also. Having a record-keeping portion for our pesticides or fertilizers and everything like that helps me save time.
Trimble Ag Software to me allows me to keep global GAP audit concise and put it all in one place so you get the whole picture of what happened in that particular ranch and what is being grown on it.
