Agricultural organizations require ERP software that is specific to the farm and feed industry. The agricultural industry includes everything from nurseries and feed mills to cattle ranches, dairy and grain farms. This creates a very unique set of functional requirements that are unavailable in the average ERP solution.
The presence or absence of agricultural specific features such as livestock tracking or crop production will determine an ERP vendor’s industry experience and differentiate one ERP software package from another. Reviewing and documenting the organization’s functional requirements will be the important when selecting an agricultural accounting software package that provides rapid return on investment and measurable results.
