AGRIS 21.1.0 Now Available

With the release of 21.1.0, Greenstone has focused on four primary areas within AGRIS:

1. Regulatory Updates

Adjustments were deployed to focus on COVID and federal policy changes. These updates included changes to Payroll Employee config, 1099 PATR and 1099 MISC reporting.

2. Over 50 Enhancements across the suite

These improvements focused on your feedback on how to improve workflows, transactions processing and switching focus quickly. For example, oneWeigh introduced over 20 improvements focused on startup, processing, and reporting performance to aid users in almost every phase of their workflow. Within the Commodity management system the use of the “Go button” was expanded to aid in transitioning to related tasks and warehouse receipts is now available to store within the AttachToo document management module. In Accounts Receivable bookings can now be added by Ship-To to simplify application in complex invoicing scenarios.

3. Data Integrations and APIs

AGRIS continues to expand integrations to 3rd party systems with a new integration to COMData – a PCI compliant Point of Sale / remote fuel system. With this release optimizations were added to our Agronomy API’s for tighter farm/field integrations as well as fine tuning of a grain automated hedging and merchandising solution scheduled to release later this year.

4. Technology Advancements

AGRIS has now introduced alert reporting that can be implemented within any Active Report, notifying users via email only when a condition exists. AGRIS users can now also tag “favorite reports” to simplify sorting for each reporting area.

At the 2020 customer conference, attendees were given a sneak peek into Greenstone’s ability to enable dashboard widgets that display graphs or details for the employees most important metrics.  With the 21.1.0 release this capability will be available to a limited group of companies for final feedback before general release later this year.  If your agribusiness would like to be part of our Innovator Group, this new feature will save your team time and shortens status checks on select focus areas of the business.
