Vertical Software, Inc.
Vertical Software's roots begin in 1981. A manager at a river elevator in Pekin, Illinois was looking for a better way to account for grain deliveries, settlements and shipments. This man's desire for a faster and more efficient way of doing business is how Vertical Software got started.
A group of individuals known for their computer skills were assembled to develop a product. It wasn't long before management realized that to be successful, more experience was needed from the grain industry. Soon experts from all segments of the grain industry were added. From this group of individuals representing both the computer and grain industry came "GrainTrac, The Standard of Excellence for Grain Accounting Software." GrainTrac is the only grain accounting software designed, developed and supported by experts from the grain industry.
As systems were sold and installed, every new user requested enhancements. Vertical Software chose to modify GrainTrac, rather than require that the users modify their accounting methods. As enhancements were added, GrainTrac became more flexible and adaptable to a wider segment of the grain industry.
This is still our philosophy today and because of this, GrainTrac is the most flexible and powerful grain accounting system. Because grain accounting is both art and science, you need a system that will meet your specific demands. This is why GrainTrac is your best choice.
Soon GrainTrac was installed in a large segment of the grain industry in over 30 states and Canada. GrainTrac is used by River Terminals, Country Elevators, Grain Processors, Cereal Makers, Grain Trading Houses, Feed Lots, and Flour Mills.
GrainTrac is used by the largest grain companies and the smallest country elevators. In some cases, GrainTrac is used as a front end system to main frame computers. Often GrainTrac is relied upon as a full solution.
In one case, GrainTrac replaced a one hundred-year old manual accounting system for a flour mill and relays grain settlement data to their corporate mainframe payable system. For this company, GrainTrac ties all grain purchasing together for locations in five states spread across three time zones.
Vertical Software has enjoyed a great deal of success with large, mid sized, and small grain companies. Grain companies with multiple locations can bring information together from remote locations to the corporate level, and at an affordable price.
The BinTrac management system was added in 1986 as a solution for bin inventory control. BinTrac dynamically keeps running bin inventories. BinTrac's reports show bin inventory levels and weighted average quality factors. When used in combination with ScaleTrac, BinTrac will warn the operator of potential bin overfills.
A multi-user version of GrainTrac became available in 1986. Personal computer local area networks (PC-LAN) give employees a method of sharing work details and the resulting data.
The Clerk Grain Clerk system was introduced in 1987. Grain enabled Vertical Software to offer quality solutions to small companies at affordable prices.
In 1989, Vertical Software added the Red Wing financial accounting system. This system integrates with the GrainTrac and Grain Clerk systems to provide complete financial reporting.
Dell Computers, Okidata printers, and other peripheral hardware products were added in 1990. With the powerful line of products from Dell Computers, Vertical Software can provide turnkey solutions backed by a national support program at a fair price.
The ScaleTrac scale interface system was developed to eliminate the time involved and the errors created by manual scale ticket entry. ScaleTrac received NTEP approval from the United States Office of Weights and Measures in 1992. This powerful state of the art software package further enhances Vertical's product line and provides a clear advantage over competing systems.
As the result of requests from our Illinois clients, Vertical Software became an approved printer for the state of Illinois for Price Later contract forms in 1993. The GrainTrac and Grain Clerk systems produce Price Later contracts in a fraction of the time and cost that it takes to manually produce them.
Vertical Software worked very closely with ADM to develop the grain industries first electronic data interchange for contracts, farmer direct shipments and elevator load-outs. As a result of those efforts, Vertical Software released the SPEEDI product in April of 1995.
Vertical Software offers network installation and administration services. Clients can choose from either the powerful Microsoft Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003, and Microsoft XP Pro workstations for their network. These network products are industry standard and will provide consistent service for many years.
In 1998 Vertical Software released a version of the GrainTrac software that is year 2000 compliant. Work is also being done to make the GrainTrac system more internet friendly. This feature allows a farmer to research his account status from the grain elevator's web page. Other features are planned that will establish the country elevator as the farmers resource center for retrieving information from the World Wide Web As you consider your options, remember to chose a company you can trust to get the job done. Vertical Software has the people, the experience, and the product line to meet your needs.
