Agribusiness Digitalization Solutions

The world’s population is growing faster than ever and is expected to reach 10 billion within the next thirty years. (1) The reduced availability of tillable land combined with the increased demand for healthy, chemical-free foods is forcing growers to use new technologies and lean on big data to help make better business decisions. The digitalization of agribusiness significantly helps optimize seed selection, irrigation, fertilization, and crop protection.

Salesforce’s customer relationship management software for the agriculture industry allows farmers to store and follow up on customer leads to facilitate finding new customers, while tracking customer behavior, crop data, weather impacts, crop disease, as well as usage and service costs of related products and services. The marketing side of Salesforce will help you build personalized messaging to cultivate better relationships with both your buyers and partners in the supply chain. In the agriculture industry relationships are key, especially the need to maintain long-term relationships with your buyers, agents and supply chain partners, while providing value to customers, increasing their loyalty and earning their mutual trust in your product.

Cirrius Solutions understands the complex ecosystem of farming equipment manufacturers, food processors, and agrichemical growers. We have built trusted relationships with many companies in the agribusiness ecosystem – from origination, trading and food processing to agrichemical companies, farm machinery and equipment manufacturers.

We are a leader in building digital business processes for the agricultural sector starting with the grower all the way through to the retailer and end-consumer. We help farmers and manufactures realize better agricultural outcomes, maintain better relationships with customers, make informed decisions driven by data, and efficiently manage inventory to increase profitability.
