WinField and Agworld Team Up to Address Retailer Challenges
Agworld helps improve the people, processes and measurement systems of your business, and is catered to your location, size and business needs. For smaller locations, the software functions as a collaborative platform for farmers, consultants and other stakeholders. For larger locations, Agworld is more of a built-to-scale system that offers tools to enhance work in the field. “We understand that no two businesses are the same, so we built Agworld to be flexible. The technology works to fit you—not the other way around,” says Zach Sheely, Agworld president.
Wilco, a WinField cooperative partner, has been using Agworld since 2013 and the results have been overwhelmingly positive. All of the co-op’s 26 agronomists use the tool every day on approximately 270,000 acres, which is roughly 25 percent of the Wilco market area. Jeff Freeman, Wilco marketing and supply manager, notes, “Agworld, at its heart, is a grower-based program, but it’s also a valuable tool for the ag retailer.”
While working with Agworld offers several benefits, here are the top three based on user feedback:
- Creates efficiency
- Demonstrates retailer value
- Standardizes services
If your retail location is considering Agworld, we encourage your team to first identify the most important areas of your business that need improvement, and consider what would provide the most value to farmers. Because the software is flexible, there is not a one-size-fits-all approach. “I highly recommend Agworld, but having the right business model is crucial. You need to have a system that is easy to use and mobile, because Agworld has web-based and iPad app components,” says Freeman.
We recommend retailers look into using Agworld, a preferred WinField partner, to find out how it can help your business.
