Staying on top of current technology & customer demands.
At AgVantage, we pride ourselves on taking the time to fully understand our customers and their needs. This understanding sets the foundation for the work we undertake to help clients build strong, vibrant and sustainable businesses through innovative agribusiness software and services.
How It Works
Our CDD process begins and ends with you, our family of customers. Customer Feedback drives our development process every day. Our Support Specialists talk about the tasks you do and the steps you take and discuss ways to improve the process and run more efficiently. We learn from each other about new ways to gather and analyze data driving good business decisions. We release solutions back to our users with routine implementation and training. It’s all about you.
Robust Product Platforms
AgVantage applications are designed for our clients’ technical preferences.
Skilled Development Team
AgVantage Software is unique in the industry in that software enhancements are deployed every week and follow the seasons of the ag industry. This philosophy allows our customers to have input regularly and receive solutions routinely. Our Skilled Development team and Support Specialist work together with customers to design, test and deploy the latest in technology.

You won’t even notice that the system is miles away!

Training is a very important part of implementing a computer system. At AgVantage, we take this very seriously, and not only when you come onto the system as a beginner, but throughout your lifetime. We will hold training at your offices, group training at local spots, right at your desk with e-Training or at our office. In addition, we have the BEST training in the industry at our conferences each year.
If you are going through a merger, starting a new company or whatever your next endeavor is, let AgVantage help you with the task. We have many years of experience at our fingertips and always love to consult with your team.
Our e–training classes provide education in your office via a website and a conference phone call. E–training classes are interactive, allowing your employees to ask questions that are specific to your needs.
Unless your company is signed up for one of our unlimited e-Training packages, there is a $100 per class per connection fee for attending a class.

Our associates will provide your staff with the training they need to operate smoothly and efficiently. New customers, mergers, or new releases may require on-site assistance, and we’re available to help. We will work with you to plan a convenient and timely schedule. We also have laptops that can be shipped to your office for "hands on" training.
AgVantage is a trusted partner in the industry and regarding the unfortunate chance of a disaster is no exception. Just like insurance policies, which are there to protect you from situations that we hope never happen, we have put a disaster solution, or High Availability (HA) system in place. In simplest terms, every time a transaction is written to the production system, within seconds, it’s also written to the HA system.
AgVantage customers have several options: customers may replicate to their own CBU system, have their entire system replicated to a partition in our office in Rochester, MN; or just replicate their AgVantage data to a shared partition in Rochester.

We use AgVantage Software for all our services and financial activities…it’s the true backbone of our company when it comes down to software. If software won’t interface with AgVantage, we won’t use it.
