November 14th, 2017
Hutchinson, KS - AgTrax continues to pave the way for agribusiness accounting software standards, meeting industry demands with its recently completed acquisition of KTrack from Kasa Controls & Automation. “AgTrax is tremendously excited about this acquisition as it provides our customer base with cutting-edge bin management software designed to meet federal guidelines and processor demands for grain traceability” says Gayle Lewis – President of AgTrax.
AgTrax will rebrand and enhance the KTrack software suite to provide additional functionality to the existing product. This software provides real time bin inventory management of commodity volume and average grade factors to improve operational, management, and merchandising efficiency. It will save time and increase accuracy by automatically transferring data from AgTrax Scale Interface to KTrack with no manual entry required. It will allow organizations to keep precise logs and quickly access historical information in the case of inspection or a contamination incident. Users will have the ability to manage and assign grading factors, transfer commodities from bin to bin, and customize colors of the commodities on the visual graphics of their facilities. Historical ticket data includes producer detail, field, weights, factors, and much more available at the click of a mouse.
“This field-ready software will bring a new level of functionality to our existing systems and the enhancements we have planned will excite our customer base with the traceability that will be easily accessible to them”, says Lewis. He continues, “We work diligently to provide our software users with the tools necessary to efficiently operate their organizations and the acquisition of KTrack aligned seamlessly with our existing suite of grain handling software.”

“On behalf of the Board and the company, I want to thank Michele for her many contributions to Synergex,” said Ken Lidster, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board. “During her tenure as Synergex's CEO, she has a long list of accomplishments and has received numerous recognitions for her efforts.”

“I feel confident in knowing that I’m leaving operations in the hands of a very experienced and competent leadership team, which will be led by Bill Mooney,” said Wong. She will continue in her role on the Synergex Board of Directors and as a shareholder. In addition, she will remain in her role as CEO of CleanWorld and is looking forward to spending more time with her husband, Tony.

TraxView® now integrated into Bushel™ mobile app platform

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 

TraxView® now integrated into Bushel™ mobile app platform

Partnership offers a streamlined solution for AgTrax customers
Hutchinson, KS and Fargo, ND, August 3, 2017–AgTrax®, an industry-leading agribusiness software firm and Myriad Mobile, an enterprise software technology company focused on mobile and web applications, today announced a partnership to custom integrate the TraxView® accounting software into the Bushel™ mobile grain app platform.
Bushel is the grain industry’s first automated mobile app platform for elevators and cooperatives to connect with their growers and deliver real-time actionable information via a mobile app.
TraxView® is an industry-leading grain accounting system used by more than 1400 grain elevator, cooperative and feed company locations in the U.S. and Canada.
“As we started contacting elevators across the U.S., about the Bushel platform, many were AgTrax customers,” said Dane Braun, Bushel Product Manager. “Through partnering we’re able to offer them a robust mobile app solution to add value to their client base,” added Braun.
Bushel’s secure, cloud-based platform eliminates data entry and streamlines communication enabling growers to connect directly with their elevator via the app to receive bids, track contracts, monitor markets and check pre-paid amounts. Bushel is powered by a proprietary application programming interface (API) and translator.
“While Bushel’s powerful API can work with any accounting system, it just made sense to create a custom solution for TraxView, ” added Braun. “This will enable us to bring AgTrax customers onboard and online more quickly.”
Bushel’s mobile app delivers information to the elevator’s customers including real-time scale tickets, contracts, pre-pays, price laters and cash bids. The mobile apps “sport” intuitive design, robust features, quality and best available security.
“Increased functionality utilizing API technology with our ever-growing partner network is an important aspect of our business,” said Chuck Jenkins, Director of Marketing and Sales for AgTrax. “By integrating our TraxView accounting software into Bushel’s cloud-based platform, we’re leveraging that technology while empowering our grain industry clients to better serve their producer customers through a mobile app.”
While AgTrax will be seamlessly integrated into the Bushel platform, the mobile apps will remain custom branded to each elevator–maintaining the local name with the grower.
“Our goal now is to educate our customers on the capabilities of the Bushel platform,” added Jenkins. “We share the technology-first business strategy Bushel was built-on and know our clients can leverage this new tool to deliver real-time data, empower better decisions and ultimately strengthen relationships with their customers.”
AgTrax has planned a series of joint marketing initiatives with the Bushel team to communicate the new technology to their customer base including webinars, sales training/calls and other promotion.
“We see this as a valuable new business and product development relationship as we expand Bushel’s footprint and add features to ultimately help growers meet the challenges of global agriculture,” concluded Braun.
AgTrax customers wishing to receive a sales call regarding Bushel can contact AgTrax at: 866.360.0016 or the Bushel team at: contact@bushel.ag.
