Producers selling grains, pulses, oilseeds, and organics to Columbia Grain International now can take advantage of an improved digital experience with a new mobile app and web portal on the Bushel platform.
Bushel helps agribusinesses quickly share accurate information to producers through a custom-branded application on their smartphone and desktop. The app and web portal are available to over 8,000 farmers selling grain at more than 60 grain storage and processing centers, spanning the northern tier of the U.S.
The new mobile app, named Columbia Grain International, is available in both Android and iPhone devices to allow producers easy access to real-time information, including electronic scale tickets, contracts and on holds. To log in to the app, the producer only needs to enter their cell phone number to receive a text with a -digit code to enter on the next screen.
"We are committed to streamlining the work and efficiencies of our producers to ensure they get the information they need to increase their success," said Jeff Van Pevenage, CEO and president of Columbia Grain International.
"Our new Columbia Grain International mobile app allows them to have intentional conversations about market trends rather than having to look up the information. We’re excited to share this technology with our growers to cultivate the further growth of our digital offerings."
With the Columbia Grain International mobile app and web portal, producers will be able to:
- View scale tickets
- Check futures
- Track grain contracts
- View commodity balances
- Receive important notifications
- See key location information
- Read the latest market news
“The Bushel app enables me to view delivery tickets almost instantaneously once the load hits the pit at the elevator. It gives me the ability to quickly view open contracts and purchase settlements. It also provides up-to-date cash bids and futures pricing. It’s a true one-stop-shop,” said Martin Poxleitner, a farmer near Grangeville, Idaho. ”I utilize the cash bid feature daily and view delivery tickets every day I haul wheat into the elevator.”
