Excellent Farm Management Software

2020-11-12

We've been using Granular for three years, and our experience with the software has gotten better each year. Very happy with the continued growth and updates made to the software, and excellent support and customer service. Using Granular has greatly simplified the record keeping and budgeting aspects of our farming operation.

Pros

Very happy with the ability to integrate with our machinery and save time in manually entering data.

Cons

High cost, and could use some work in the inventory management area.

Response from Granular


Hearing from farmers about how their operation's record keeping and budgeting has gotten simpler when they adopted Granular is exactly why we are in business.

Thank you for your loyalty and continued business. Inventory management updates are in the queue to be addressed!

Granular Farm Management Software

2020-01-17

We are an organic farm, so the ability to track all of our inputs to each field, track each field activity record, and then trace the flow of grain from its end destination back to a field/seed has been an amazing asset to our business.

Pros

The best things about the software are input inventory management, grain inventory management, and field activity record keeping.

Cons

The financial side of Granular has been the most cumbersome piece of the software to use. Once you wrap your head around it, it makes more sense but getting there took awhile for our farm. Granular is always looking for feedback to make the product better, so I have no doubt that they will continue to improve this portion of their software.

Effective ERP System

2020-09-08

Our experience has been great. Granular is very agile and open to hearing ideas on how to improve the product.

Pros

It helps assign tasks, or work orders, to our team members and get them going in the right direction.

Cons

We are currently struggling with users being able to data enter receipts and returns of inputs for inventory management (there is no functionality for this).

Still Learning

2020-12-17

We are beginning to have a better handle on products used and seeing the profitability side of our farming operation. It is a HUGE learning curve, but it has value.

Pros

I like the ease of access anywhere whether through the mobile app or website.

Cons

I wish some reports were easier to generate rather than having to export the CSV file and then filter and sort with excel.

Logistics has been a huge advantage of Granular and having all employees being able to access the information from their phones on a live program.

Pros

easy to assign to different employees and easy for the employees to have all of the information and directions to complete tasks. Monitoring of progress by list and visually is very nice.

Cons

Getting all the data in initially is very time consuming, but the more accurate it is and in depth the better information you are able to obtain from it.

Pros

This software has truly saved us time and money and I would offer my recommendation of Granular to any interested party that wants to use their data to find new ways to maximize profits.

Cons

The app has been designed to serve as an access point to assign work orders to employees so employees can input scale tickets or attach themselves to the assigned job.

Granular Review in Almonds

Organized and helpful

Pros

If I stay consistent and accurate with data entry, I can access any information I would ever need in an easy to read report.

Cons

I cant say much of anything bad about the software although I wish there was a loyalty program for people to get discount after using for several years.

Granular FSA Acreage Report

2020-12-15

It is a powerful analytical tool that I learn something new about each time I access it.

Pros

One of the Granular features I really like and that saved me a lot of time was the FSA Acreage Report. Our operation has several farms that consist of multiple tracts.

Cons

I can’t really say there is anything I dislike about Granular so far. Any issues I’ve had have been quickly resolved by their top notch customer service team.

2020-12-08

Pros

Tracking inventory with multiple sources to record when inventory is coming in and when inventory is used up daily has been a great way to see your real numbers.

Cons

Being able to pull up data by clicking on a field would be helpful vs trying to filter your way across the whole program to find an answer you need now while talking through the drivers door window with your agronomist

GR Farms review of Granular

2020-12-09

For the grower that does not mind working some at data input, the reward Granular gives in a clear view of how the season went down is very rewarding.

Pros

The reports that are able to be generated are very through and can be customized to about any view I need. The mobile app is user friendly and takes a lot of burden off me when in the office.

Cons

As hard as I try, machine integration is never perfect and changes to data logged are never done.

Glad to hear that we're able to help give you peace of mind when you look at your operations' P&L, Garrett! And that at the end of the season, you feel confident in knowing how your operation did that year.

Appreciate the honest feedback on some of the areas that are a bit more time consuming for you. We're big believers in (and it sounds like you are too!) the better the data going in, the better perspective and analysis that comes out!

We appreciate your continued support and for being a loyal part of the Granular family.

Microscope for Farm Operation

2020-11-11

My customer success advisor has made sure my needs are met and if I am too busy in the field they will even add in or switch data for my operation while I am on the phone.

Pros

From documenting land rents, recording in season work to tracking grain contracts and grain inventory; it is all accessible by myself and other admin to keep us up to date while not wasting time.

Cons

One area I would like to see improved is to have the ability to load machine data from either cloud or thumb drive and program will automatically load lbs. of crop into inventory. I feel inventory and contract portion of program is almost too in depth.

I like the Customer Success Managers.

2020-11-12

I have been able to capture grain deliveries, grain yields per field, grain deliveries to specific elevators, create reports on input applications and create grain yield reports for crop insurance.

Pros

The Customer Success Managers stay connected to you and your farming operation that you get the most out of your Granular subscription. They meet with you - virtually - and ask the question to see what you need to make the Granular product useful for your operation.

Cons

it takes some time to catch on the the details of the software - like any software system - but once it clicks with you - it is very useful.

Aidan’s Granular Review

2020-03-05

Granular has the best support system of anything that I’ve used. Response times are under 2 minutes and are extremely detailed. I could say that with their help, and the frequency at which I need that help, I feel confident that I can say I am a Granular super-user.

Pros

It is also easy to create and manage tasks related to fields or farms as well as crop plans.

Cons

The only complaint that I have with granular is that depending on what you are looking for, the reports are not as easily tailored to specific needs.
