Get a sneak peek at AgExpert Analyst 2013

Get a sneak peek at AgExpert Analyst 2013

While we were upgrading next month’s release of AgExpert Analyst 2013, we turned to the experts – you.

You’ve told us what you like and don’t like, where we should make improvements and what you’d like to see different. You spoke. We listened.

So what’s better?

Instead of having multiple data files for multiple years, now you just need one database – making year-end easier than ever.

We’ve introduced a new setup tool that lets you add transactions outside of your current fiscal year with a click of a button.

Your accountant will buy you a coffee after this: the new software is divided into a customer copy and an accountant copy. You can work on one version while your accountant makes adjustments in their copy and sends it back to you to import back into your files.

Ready to upgrade yet?

AgExpert Analyst 2013 will be available in just a few weeks. In the meantime, be sure to install and upgrade your latest data file to the latest update of AgExpert Analyst 2012-04. Also, check that your data file is in normal mode before importing to AgExpert Analyst 2013. Now you’ll be good to go.

Questions? Check out our online community at community.fccsoftware.ca. Check out searchable discussions, blogs and the Knowledge Base. Plus you can connect with other software users and our support staff.

Watch for upcoming posts detailing more features in AgExpert Analyst 2013.

Save time and your data

Save time and your data

With today’s busy schedules, it’s easy to think you’re saving time by not backing up your data. But imagine if your computer crashes and you don’t have a fresh backup. How long will it take to get that information back? Many have learned the hard way – backups are essential and save you time in the long run.

Storing your backups on a secondary drive is the best practice. The expense of the software and the secondary drive is minimal considering the time and effort it takes to rebuild your computer. To be even more effective, keep backup files in an off-site location. In the event of theft or fire, you’ll be safe. Finally, be sure to frequently perform your backups at least once a month or every three months. You’ll save time, data and a few sleepless nights.

I have my 360 GIS imagery. Now what do I do?

I have my 360 GIS imagery. Now what do I do?

The agriculture industry has seen a big movement towards the use of GPS receivers on tractors, combines, quads and anything else that travels on the fields. Some of these systems are used to guide machinery, others gather extensive amounts of information. Now there’s access to satellite imagery with geo-reference points that are loaded onto computers – rich with information. How is this going to help us grow better crops?

In isolation, this information isn’t going to grow better crops in the same way that doing field walks didn’t grow better crops. The biggest boost that all this information is bringing to producers is to let us manage large farming operations in a very precise way. The days of spending hours walking your fields to learn about soil composition are fading. GIS technology allows producers to use their computer monitor to walk their fields, gather valuable information and ultimately modify management practices, based on increasingly accurate information.
