CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, US — Barchart, which provides data tools and software to agribusinesses, and Oakland Corp., a provider of software and IT solutions in the agriculture industry, announced a partnership to streamline client workflows.
With the integration, agribusinesses using Oakland’s grain accounting solutions can provide grain producers with access to contracts and scale tickets in mobile apps that are fully branded to their business.
These apps connect with Barchart’s grain merchandiser platform, through offer management, chat, grower data, and eSign for grain contracts. The partnership also allows Oakland to access Barchart’s market leading network of over 3,000 grain elevators to integrate any of these digital features into Oakland's own products and services.
“We’re thrilled to expand our best-in-class ERP connectivity with a market leader in grain accounting like Oakland,” said Mark Haraburda, chief executive officer of Barchart. “Our clients want choice, and this partnership provides exactly that, while helping us provide more agribusinesses with tools that digitally connect their business to their producers.”
Dan Oakland, director of development for Oakland Corp., added, “In the years since our first integration in 2009, Barchart has become the primary source of market-related data and services for agribusiness organizations running Oakland’s grain accounting platform, and we’re happy to announce this new connectivity between systems. By providing our common client base with the ability to easily access accounting-related data directly within Barchart services and applications, we’re able to open up powerful new options for our client companies.”
Haraburda said Barchart looks forward to growing its partnership with Oakland, and working together to drive the digitization of agriculture.
