Grower Management

Image

Gone are the days when growers can run profitable operations using “seat of the pants” accounting methods. Whether you are a farm manager, labor contractor, or a grower wanting to improve your profitability, these industry-specific accounting and management tools were built with you in mind.

Software that Grows with You

Start with the grower-related software features you need and then add farm management, intercompany billing, multi-company, and other capabilities as your business evolves.

Comprehensive Crop Cost Accounting

Famous Software was built from the ground up for the agricultural community. Define meaningful cost centers, manage budgets, oversee work in progress, accurately allocate overhead, and track your profitability in real time. Analyze ranches, fields, specific operations, even crop years. Benefit from constantly updated management-level overviews, and then drill down to see details.

Flexible Cost Center Accounting

Organize your bookkeeping to reflect your organizational structure. Establish cost centers for shops, offices, and even for multiple companies. Use cash, accrual, or both cost accounting methods simultaneously. Your Famous Consultant will help you establish meaningful cost centers for your operation. Typical cost centers include but are not limited to ranches, fields, crop years, shops, offices, crews, machinery, and so on.

Payroll and Crew Management

Efficiently schedule, track, and pay a handful or thousands of full, part-time, and piece workers spread over multiple states. Fully integrated payroll and crew management tools generate crew sheets, automatically calculate minimum wage payments for piece workers, and import data from electronic timekeeping devices. Pay by cash, check, electronic deposit, or any combination of these methods.

Automatic Minimum Wage Calculations

Accurately calculate and pay mandated minimum wages for piece workers who would not otherwise receive minimum federal (FLSA) or state-mandated payments. State mandated minimum wage levels can be setup for multiple states and minimum wage will be calculated for the state where the employee is performing work. Automatic minimum wage calculations simplify and speed payroll tasks. Create printed crew assignment/timesheets.

Seasonal Workers

Properly collect and save information about seasonal workers. Minimize time-consuming and error-prone re-entries for new seasons or crops when workers return.

Multi-state Payrolls

Easily track and compensate all employees even if your operation spans multiple states. Annual state tax table updates are provided to Famous customers each year. The various State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) quarterly and State New Hire requirements are met as well.

Tax Documents and Recordkeeping

Generate paychecks meeting Migrant Seasonal Worker’s Protection (MSPA) and other government regulations. Create compliant tax reports and electronic submissions. Track INS I-9 data, employee work permit expiration dates, and Alien Registration Numbers (ARNs).

Time Tracking/Data Collection

Use crew sheets as turnaround payroll input documents or import payroll information from electronic time clocks, bar code readers, employee ID badge systems, in-field computers, and third-party systems. Ask your Famous Sales representative for details.

Equipment Costing

Track equipment costs and any related labor components. Treat each asset as a cost center or combine related items if you so choose. Define hourly billing rates. Track detailed costs, profitability, and equipment/employee utilization.

Integrated Purchasing

Purchase, hold, and transfer inventory for internal use or resale. Allocate chemicals, fertilizer, and supplies.

Invoicing, AR, and Credit Tools

Get paid what you are owed when it’s due. Spot receivables problems before they get out of hand. Manage customer credit professionally and effectively. Adjustments update all related accounting entries in real time.

Food Safety

Famous Software helps you do your part to keep our food safe from field to fork. Track crews, chemicals, and other important inputs. Monitor any level of detail you desire from farm to acre to vine or tree. Famous meets or exceeds the Can-Trace recommendations right out of the box.
