Building small business and agricultural software since 1992

We are the only software company that delivers management, production and accounting solutions that address the four components of any farm business, being:

  • Complete financial software for farming, grazing, horticulture and other business operations
  • Livestock software for Australian & New Zealand beef & sheep producers
  • Farm management
  • Farm planning

It is our primary goal to build the capacity for our clients to recognise and take advantage of opportunities when they present.

How do our clients take those opportunities:

  • Have up to date and accurate information
  • Use that information to effectively budget and plan

Our staff and directors bring a unique combination of IT development skills, accounting, business, and importantly, agricultural skills to deliver business solutions that build farm profitability and sustainability.

Our software collects your data and analyses it to provide you with information that:

  • Shows you which parts of your business are the most profitable – and why
  • Makes it simple to manage your finances and your livestock
  • Helps your farm planning by mapping and costing your property’s operations – and test-drive improvements
