Our Latest Update Drives More Flexibility to our E-Sign Application

The world is changing. Software at the elevator level is getting more integrated and more focused on workflow. Over the last five years, our clients have described challenges that arose from slowly adapting software. Our experience with integrating futures and options in risk management software has enabled us to bring a fresh perspective to the space.

One of the challenges experienced by all of our clients was lack of flexibility inside of their contracting platform. Most current platforms were designed solely to print and snail-mail contracts out. With contract offerings expanding and e-sign becoming more prevalent, current software solution response has been mixed. Our clients want to be able to offer the best risk management tools to their growers and increasing adoption of e-sign.

Our latest update addresses these concerns and takes a huge leap forward in handling flexibility and transparency. We have incorporated e-signature with a modular contracting platform that allows users to update contract language quickly, add amendments and adjustments on the fly. The platform can be integrated with your accounting software and is intended to reduce cost, streamlining the whole process and provide transparency for the grower.

Some of the features and benefits of our latest update:

  • We created a library of modern and traditional contract templates to upload your legal language into allowing you to quickly offer any contract without modifications to your accounting package. This feature also allows for custom types that allow you to define features on the fly.
  • Contact adjustment functionality that allows you to build templates for changes to the contracts and allow for instant e-signature on any changes and incorporates them into the contract timeline.
  • Advanced searching and sorting functionality inside of the contracting platform to see which contracts have been sent, are awaiting signature or have been signed. From there we can send text message reminders and follow ups to save you time and money.
  • PDF conversion of all contracts and amendments so you and your customers can see the timeline of the transaction from inception to delivery in a universal format all available on their portal and app.

We have designed a platform to move as quickly as your business does. We know new contracts and opportunities arise all the time. Our software helps clients meet these opportunities without the hassle and cost of accounting package changes. Give us a call to see what the tools in our Grain Origination Support can do for you.
