Not Your Grandfather’s Tractor: ERP System Manages Growing Complexity of Farm Equipment
The agricultural industry is of vital importance to keeping us all fed, and the distribution of farm equipment plays a key role. Just as newer equipment may incorporate the latest functionality – such as computer-controlled engines, onboard GPS, sensor controls – while older ag equipment is maintained in top shape, your dealership operations need to be streamlined for maximum efficiencies.
An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system helps to optimize every aspect of your business, including the relatively higher-margin areas of parts and service. ERP software functionality will ensure that you always have the right part on hand for the customer, and that your field service technicians are fully enabled to conduct real-time transactions for customers at their farms. Other software functionality to help you get the most profit out of your dealership include:
Parts functionality that includes: replenishment; the ability to import various manufacturers’ price tapes directly into the ERP system (costs, pricing, automatic calculating); and inventory management of the myriad of components and attachments relating to agricultural equipment.
Service functionality that includes: dispatch board; service contract management; technician availability; WIP order and labor; field service; and planned maintenance.
Rental contract management, logistics/warehousing, shipping, and more.
