User Reviews of The Farmer's Office

One feature of Farmer’s that I just discovered that I love a lot is the Acreage Split. Sometimes we have invoices that have to be broken down through all our ranches, and Farmer’s has the capability where you can input your breakdown and it saves them. Instead of having to manually reenter everything, you right click on acreage split, select the one you want, enter your activity, and it breaks it all down for you, which is a huge time saver.

We were at a fork in the road where we were beginning to grow and had issues with clashing software and instability. We decided to give Datatech a try and it was one of the best business decisions we ever made.

It really gave us the backbone software-wise to grow and not inhibit ourselves by using inferior software.

It’s a complete solution and well thought out in many areas.

We started with Datatech in 1984 because they had developed this fabulous customized software for the raisin industry. In addition to that, it had accounts payable accounts receivable general ledger, and it is all working very easily with our company. We utilize all of it.

It’s very user friendly to quote an old quote. The service makes our lives much easier as well. They have excellent customer service.

I love it. It does everything. I have the human resources, the payroll,. the accounts payable. The program is easy. The grower reports are essential. The growers are happy and I’m happy because they’re not bothering me.
