iRely i21 is an enterprise solution for the Agriculture and Petroleum industries. i21 is a browser-based platform that can provide all the needed tools to manage your agriculture business from origination to retail distribution.
The software provides functionalities for four key areas:
We have grain elevators, a fuel station, and 3 seed stores. We just recently had iGuide installed on our system 4 months ago. We have the tables set up that I want and that we use. We can look at plans and have all the information we need right there. I like that everything is there at my finger tips. In the past I would have to run 4 different reports to get the info I want.
It’s a very simple software and it’s awesome because it saves me time.
We primarily focus on manufacturing grain and retail.
As you grow you need to evaluate your software and financial programs. We were trying to bring in something for the point of sale because we have a good retail location. We needed to accommodate our retail needs and we wanted to put our hands around the cost of inventory. We needed to track a lot of lot numbers and manufacturing blends. This tool has made that a lot easier. I’m happy we made the move to this software.
My favorite feature is the inventory management. The ability to change prices and keep track of that is nice.
We were on a software system that was windows based and DOS based and we had tremendous issues with our data.
One of the ROI was the fact that we could create more efficiencies such as in settlements.
My favorite feature is that it has the F9 key which when I hit that I can drill down to see the customers information or see the settlements information for the bushels and the unpaid settlements and how much is on BP.
We were using 4 separate software packages… payroll, fixed assets, accounting, and our propane business was on a separate software package. Double posting and reporting in GL was a nightmare.
iRely has allowed us to add a lot of automation with credit cards.
The modules work great together between inventory and service stations. I love the reports, mostly the inbound tax reports, which was something we didn’t have before.
The support staff are more like consultants because they are quick to learn our business. They come up with a solution and talk it through with us so we understand.
