GrainsConnect Canada and GrainCorp have launched their online optimization and farm management tool, the GrainsConnect app.
Developed as a free tool, the app has been built to support area growers in their work and allow them to make smarter, more informed decisions when selling their grain.
The app will increase efficiency by offering a number of services to growers, including access to timely pricing and specials available in the area.
Additionally, the app will provide a platform to manage and administer contracts, track yield and produce real-time scale tickets, and check contract fulfillment between growers and merchants. Providing business information at any time of day and from any location is intended to increase efficiency and empower growers to make informed decisions for their business.
Since the fall of 2019, GrainsConnect has been receiving grain to all four of their terminals in Western Canada including Maymont and Reford in Saskatchewan, and Vegreville and the recently launched Huxley terminal in Alberta. Each state-of-the-art grain terminal has a 35,000 tonne capacity with the ability to load 134 rail cars in under 14 hours.
“Launching the GrainsConnect app to area growers provides even more efficiency to an already streamlined process,” says Warren Stow, President of GrainsConnect Canada. “We know that time is an incredibly valuable asset, and we want to demonstrate our commitment to growers by providing a tool that supports their daily operations.”
GrainsConnect Canada is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta and is a joint-venture of GrainCorp and Zen-Noh Group. GrainCorp, with corporate headquarters in Sydney, Australia, has been successfully providing customers with access to Canadian, American and global marketplaces for over 100 years. Zen-Noh Group, a major Japanese agricultural cooperative, was established in 1972 and has grown into one of the largest cooperatives in the world.
GrainsConnect partners with global organizations to deliver value to the family farms and communities where they operate. “We’re growers too,” says Stow. “We understand the importance and value of a partner, and we’re proud to integrate the GrainsConnect app into our partnership with area growers to deliver efficiency and speed to the way they work.”
The GrainsConnect app is free for area growers. For more information on the GrainsConnect app or operations, email Joyce Dorais.
