ELEVATOR GMS

Grain management software for small to medium-scale grain operators


ELEVATOR GMS

Our ELEVATOR GMS software service covers the full spectrum of elevator activities from receiving grain at the scale to shipping it to a terminal. We help you keep up with each ticket from the time it is entered until it is settled and the producer receives a check. The customer settlement we produce is simple to understand and shows summary and detail information for all of the tickets that a customer is settling.

On the outbound side, ELEVATOR GMS allows you to easily see just what was shipped to selected destinations, who was responsible for the hauling, and any docks and discounts that were taken by the terminal. The inventory module allows you to see exactly how much of any grain is at your site at any given point in time and provides the details of whether the grain is on open storage, deferred pricing, or owned by the elevator. A daily position report may be produced for any time period for your personal use or for any inspection entity that might be visiting your facility.

Our ELEVATOR Grain Management System will allow you to move away from manually tracking your grain elevator inventories with unwieldy spreadsheets and move to a reliable software solution that will increase the productivity and efficiency of your operation and the satisfaction of your customers.

ELEVATOR GMS - System Modules

ELEVATOR

The first module is called ELEVATOR and is where incoming grain is processed. This is the area where you enter customer information and incoming scale tickets, produce settlements, print incoming grain reports, sell stored grain, and all of the other functions associated with incoming grain.

Customer information, including customer names, addresses, farm information and contracts, are maintained here. Customer settlements as well as numerous other reports are also produced by this component. If you need to know how much grain was received during the last week, you can obtain that information with a few keystrokes.

SHIPPER

SHIPPER is the second major area of the system and is used to enter and maintain information about grain that is leaving your facility. It can provide you with information about grain destinations, shipping agents, freight costs associated with the transport, and many other types of data.

This component allows you to enter outbound tickets as they exit your facility and later enter the information that was supplied by the destination elevator where the grain was delivered. It is easy to see any discrepancies between what you say was shipped and what the other party says was received. This module also includes a number of other reports.

DAILY POSITION

The final component of the system is known as DAILY and is where you keep up with the position of each of your grains. Information may be automatically transferred from the incoming (ELEVATOR) and outgoing (SHIPPER) tickets so that you do not need to re-enter this information a second time.

You may also make manual adjustments to any position as are required. The main reports in this section are designed to show your position and liability information and are quite useful to the grain inspectors when they are reviewing your situation.
