Bushel’s ERP Partnership Philosophy: The Three C’s that Connect Agriculture



In the ever-evolving landscape of agriculture, staying ahead of the curve is not just a preference, but a necessity. As markets shift and technology advances, the importance of data, collaboration, and customer-centric solutions becomes more pronounced. At Bushel, we take pride in our partnerships and our commitment to connecting the agricultural industry through ERP integrations. Our partnership philosophy revolves around three key pillars: Collaboration, Customer Obsession, and Data Centricity.

Collaboration: Strengthening the Supply Chain Through Integration

In today’s fast-paced agricultural environment, data reigns supreme. It’s the key to making informed decisions, optimizing processes, and succeeding in the industry. We firmly believe that the best innovations happen through collaboration. That’s why we actively seek partnerships and integrate with various systems to create digital solutions that not only streamline operations but also provide the infrastructure and information needed to help your business grow. Our integrations are designed with one goal in mind: to strengthen relationships across the entire supply chain.

Customer Obsession: Putting Our Growers and Retailers First

Our commitment to partnerships and integrations stems from our unwavering dedication to serving our customers. We recognize that these collaborations create efficiencies and simplify processes. Ever integration we undertake is centered around how we can best serve our end users. It’s about making their lives easier, their businesses more efficient, and their operations smoother. Many of our integrations are started with our customers being a part of the conversation and wanting to see their systems connect. 

Data Centricity: Empowering Agribusinesses with Accessible Data

In the digital age, data must be easily accessible and seamlessly connect to existing systems. We understand that collaboration is essential to harnessing the power of data. By integrating the most vital and integral systems, we empower agribusinesses and farmers to access the information they need precisely when they need it. Data centricity is at the core of our approach to partnerships, ensuring that data is not just a valuable asset but a readily available resource.

Bushel’s Newest Integration with Oakland

Our latest integration is with Oakland, who serves many customers in the Iowa region. Scale tickets are now live for those using this ERP system, with contracts and settlements to be integrated by the end of this year. 

“This integration is another step towards providing Bushel users and customers a best-in-class experience and solution. Scale tickets were the first release, and we made sure to deliver those during harvest, the most critical time for our customers.  scale tickets available at harvest for most of our customers.  We continue efforts to deliver even more value in the coming weeks,” said Ford Kirk, Director of Partnerships at Bushel. 

The connection between Oakland’s comprehensive ERP System and Bushel’s platform allows companies to easily locate contracts, storage balances, customer statements, and records in the Bushel mobile apps and desktop portals, which are populated by the Oakland system.

Other benefits include: 

  • Effortless Access: Agribusinesses can easily locate contracts, storage balances, customer statements, and records within the Bushel mobile apps and desktop portals, all populated by the Oakland system.
  • Streamlined Communication: Send push notifications on important changes, such as harvest hours, discount schedules, and event information, to communicate with farming customers promptly.
  • Enhanced Efficiency: Give growers access to their grain accounting features from anywhere, at any time, reducing the need for manual record-keeping.
  • Digital Contracts: Streamline the contract process with eSign and digital contracts, saving time and effort for both parties.
  • Extended Offer Hours: Take and fill more offers, even outside of office hours, thanks to the convenience of the integrated platform.

With the integration with Oakland, we look forward to unlocking even more potential for customers, empowering them and their farmer customers with seamless access to the data they need.
