An ERP is a model of a business in software, but businesses are unique. You shouldn't be required to adapt to the policies and workflows provided by the software vendor. ERPNext offers powerful and flexible tools out of the box, but there are limitations.
Developing custom workflows is a challenge. You need your system to actively enforce company policy and guide the user to work within that policy. Success requires business acumen, insight into how people use ERPNext, and often a deep technical knowledge of how to leverage the Frappe framework.
We can help. AgriTheory has extensive experience implementing custom business policies in ERPNext that we can draw from to accurately model yours.
Cash flow budgets convert "good ideas" into a blueprint for success. They offer insight into potential problems, years or months in the future. We're passionate about constructing meaningful budgets because they promise something no other document can: a plan to succeed, written in numbers.
Planning how much to spend on expansion before the time comes is often the difference between a productive new project and an empty bank account. We can help you through the planning and budgeting process.
Following a plan or budget is difficult without in-context guidance. Sometimes that means requiring certain roles to sign off on a purchase. Other times it means warning the user that they have crossed a dynamically-generated budget threshold. We work with you to design a system that helps users manage the problem before it actually becomes a problem.
Agricultural businesses have some of the most complex inventory management requirements of any industry. Volatile commodity markets drive both inputs and outputs. Biological inventory must be tracked accurately, continuously, and in compliance with GAAP or IFRS. These issues are in their most challenging contexts in the agricultural space, but a fluency in handling them leads to high-quality output, regardless of industry.
AgriTheory knows the tools to wrangle inventory complexity. We can help you apply advanced stock-keeping and cost accounting techniques - from automating cost allocations to creating dimensional pro forma projections - to address your needs.

It used to be enough to create a business that did one thing well. But technological advances and an increasingly globalized marketplace are changing the landscape. These modern dynamics conspire to force business owners to mange their supply chain and distribution, and sometimes own it.
Historically, agriculture has been ahead of the rest of the economy in this area, in the form of producer-own-cooperatives and market-making organizations. We'll help you track, analyze, and streamline your supply chain and distribution processes.
The cost centers within your business may not be independently profitable in any given period. How these businesses-within-a-business flow into each other is complex, especially when they utilize a shared resource base. We can help you examine your cost centers and see where your business needs to optimize, expand or shift focus.
Migrating business software is difficult and often expensive, but being locked into legacy software only works for so long. We want to help you migrate to the system or combination of systems that make the most sense for your business. We'll work to complete the migration in a way that matches your financial cycles, budget constraints, and long-term goals.
With our help, you can upgrade the parts of your system to overcome their current bottlenecks while simultaneously positioning your infrastructure for continuous improvement.
Free and open source software provides a number of benefits to its users, and by its nature, invites them into the process to cultivate new features. There's an entire community of contributors who share common needs, so you get better features faster than you would as an isolated group or from off-the-shelf solutions. You can influence the development process by bringing the tools you want to fruition, while making use of ones others have built. Your engagement in the process ensures that the software accommodates your business as it grows and changes.
Software development is hard. You can participate in it at your own pace and budget without waiting for some megacorp to decide that your needs are important. That said, our development agreements allow you to keep your secret sauce secret or make your tools stronger by sharing them with others and marshaling their efforts.
However you decide, you reap the benefits of using free software that's forged from the community and designed to grow with its needs.
We can help you move your data where you need it to be.
Modern software development offers an abundance of options for synchronizing your data across platforms. We implement organic solutions for customers that have included shipping label creation and hardware integrations like barcode scanners, scales and click-to-print interfaces. We can help you organize how your business-critical applications talk to each other on a timeline that makes sense for you.
For your business systems to perform effectively, they frequently need to communicate with software that's beyond your control. We leverage tools - such as custom APIs, webhooks, database synchronization, event streaming, and automated exports - to help your systems connect with external services. These may include shipping services, payment gateways, and specialized logistics software.
Having a unified data source for your analysis can mean the difference between timely action and a late reaction. We can help your business implement data lakes, data warehouses and/or an OLAP architecture so that you can achieve real-time business intelligence.
