Analytic Dashboards to use with The Game Plan
05 Oct 2022
The Game Plan is not just one function in Agvance, but rather a collaborative approach to creating a successful plan for the growing season. Agvance users refer to The Game Plan when talking about the agronomy sales cycle in which sales and growers work together utilizing Agvance tools to gather information, plan, and apply needed products. Analytic dashboards to view all necessary information help the decision-making evolve. Newly added dashboards to support The Game Plan are available as part of the library of 80+ available dashboards in Agvance SKY Analytics.
The Game Plan Benefits Retailers and Farmers
Spencer Hammer, SSI Account Sales Manager understands Agvance from the ag retailer perspective and additionally utilizes the Agvance grower portal, Grower360, as part of his farming operation. He has seen the positive impacts of Agvance tools and says, “The Game Plan is all about streamlining the process with mobile tools and capturing all that information in Agvance, so it is available not only to sales staff and the grower but also to other Agvance users.” Luke Furr, also a farmer with recent experience at an ag retailer before joining SSI as a Customer Support Advisor has seen how Agvance tools can assist, too. Furr says, “sales staff access everything on their phone or tablet through Agvance and have all information about the grower at their fingertips. They can also make custom templates that they can push to the grower, they can apply programs to fields, and have everything about the grower in one place.” Read more about the advantages of The Game Plan here: 5 Reasons that Agronomy Planning is a Game Changer.
