Working with Abletech

Working with Abletech

Farm Focus (formerly CRS Software) worked with Abletech to speed up the delivery of Farm Focus (known as Cash Manager Focus at the time). The following article appears on the Abletech website.

CRS — Farm management software

CRS Software is in the business of farming. At the forefront of the agritech sector for over 39 years, CRS continues to lead the way. Its award-winning management software, Cash Manager Focus, improves farm planning, performance and profitability.

Cash Manager Focus is built by farmers for farmers, allowing them to understand the big picture, manage risks and plan for future growth. More than accounting software, the online product gives farmers the confidence to monitor where their business is right now and envisage where they could go.

The challenge

From its base in the Wairarapa CRS approached Abletech to help speed up the delivery of Cash Manager Focus and to add features that farmers were craving. We spoke with Sally Rutherford, CRS’s Product Delivery Manager. She says they are selective about who they work with.

We wanted to speed up the development process but we weren’t prepared to just bring anybody in. We wanted a good fit. The dynamics are really important when you’re working together

The Abletech difference

They do their homework. They show up at meetings prepared and well researched. They learn what they can before they get into the work which we’ve really appreciated

Abletech fits in just like another one of CRS’s own squads.

They’re just really easy to get along with. They’re very friendly and have built a great rapport with our team. They’re really good at communicating and that’s really important for us

The result

From managing income and expenses, to planning and reporting, Cash Manager Focus puts farmers in the driver’s seat. With this innovative product farmers can sort out their finances and get back to what they really enjoy.
