Agriculture, forestry, fishing, and mining software

Agriculture, forestry, fishing, and mining companies all deal with the utilization of natural resources. This one common factor has major accounting implications. The needs of agriculture, forestry, fishing, and mining companies often far exceed the basics of simply tracking financials in accounts payable, accounts receivable, and the general ledger. Tracking inventory, land usage, and processes related to the tending, discovery, extraction or processing of resources creates the need for software packages that can integrate the financial and operations sides of the business.

Delivering goods to market

For any business dealing extensively with raw materials, there exists a need to maximize the efficiency of moving those items downstream. The next-step in your case might be in-house processing or it might be another business or even the end-user. Regardless, you’ll likely require software that will assist you in maximizing your logistics to effectively deliver goods to market.

Advanced requirements

Keeping up with the utilization of natural resources also frequently introduces a number of more advanced software requirements such yields and wastage calculation, lot or batch-based inventory tracking and unit of measurement conversions, and joint interest calculation. These are but a few of the advanced features that solutions targeted toward agriculture, forestry, fishing, and mining businesses will provide that may not be found in more industry-neutral packages.

The need for customization

The need for customization is especially important for companies conducting agriculture, forestry, fishing, and mining business. You need software that speaks your language and refers to processes and physical items using the language your company’s employees use. The ability to define fields and reports is therefore extremely important. Finding a solution that allows for these customizations and a solutions provider who can assist in implementing them is of critical importance.

Budgeting, planning, and forecasting

One of the most underrated requirements of companies dealing with the utilization of natural resources is strong budgeting and forecasting software. Aside from the challenge of predicting demand, agriculture, forestry, fishing, and mining companies often face uncertainty on the supply side. Incorporating planning and budgeting software can help prepare your business for what-if scenarios.

Find out more

There are of course many more ways that agriculture, forestry, fishing, and mining businesses have unique needs beyond the brief discussion here. Connecting with the right provider is first and foremost a matter of being able to locate a solutions provider who can help you with your specific needs.
