Farmplan Announce Launch of Next Step in Cloud-Based Crop Recording Solutions

LONDON, January 25, 2018

Agricultural IT solutions leader, Farmplan, have announced the launch of the next product in its range of web-based crop recording solutions.

Gatekeeper Express Plus is now available following its launch at LAMMA 18. The solution offers users enhanced functionality which builds on the success of Gatekeeper Express, first seen early last year, offering farmers with less complex requirements a wider range of tools and features to better manage their business.

Sarah Alexander, Arable Product Manager at Farmplan says, “For Farmplan, Gatekeeper Express marked the beginning of a shift to not only modernise its crop recording offerings by going fully web-based, but to work more closely with customers and the market as a whole, to produce a solution that can offer real flexibility, mobility and time-saving benefits. Of course Gatekeeper Express was the first step towards this goal helping users meet simple record keeping requirements but now Farmplan are delighted to announce that Gatekeeper Express Plus is also available.”

The Farmplan team based here in the UK have drawn on their combined technical and agricultural knowledge to create Gatekeeper Express Plus with the support of farmers who have helped in every step of its development.

Users can expect enhanced features including stock, average pricing and trading tools to help them manage sales and purchases plus more detailed job management. In this version the team have also added in a wealth of additional reporting tools including crop gross margin, crop growing valuation and stock valuation.

Sarah adds, “Not only have Farmplan now got a range of solutions that are fully web-based but we will shortly be launching a mobile partner app too, so users can keep and review records on the go.”

The Gatekeeper Express range is available from as little as £17 per month, users also benefit from full support via Farmplan’s team of highly skilled and knowledgeable advisors.
