What do you like best?

What I like best about Conservis would be it's ease of use and the ability to track numerous things such as inputs, activities and costs during all seasons, both production and harvest. With so many inputs coming in and out of our doors every day, it is crucial to be able to monitor them. It's also a great way to monitor activities- whether that is production/planting activities or harvesting. Conservis provides an easy way to get an overview of where we are in our day to day processes. Everyone I've come in contact with at Conservis operates at a level of excellence.

What do you dislike?

It would be helpful if there was a "clear filters" button anytime there is a filter option. Currently you have to manually clear out the filters when using them. Also, it appears that you are unable to delete an input, you can only deactivate it. It would be helpful if deleting was an option in the event you no longer use the input and it isn't tied to any tickets, or if it was created in error. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Having the ability to easily track inputs, activities and costs makes Conservis a valuable investment for your company. It provides an excellent way for production activities to be communicated back to your office. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are monitoring inputs, applications and costs. It would be very easy for costs and mistakes to slip through the cracks without the ability to closely monitor them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Response from Lisa Hines of Conservis

Kimberly - Thank you for the great feedback! The positive is always great to see, but understanding some of your dislikes is just as important! I've shared your overall feedback with our product team. They did mention the delete input feature you wished we had is actually developed and in the release queue. Stay tuned!

What do you like best?

I like that I can see the products and amounts applied to each field. Tickets are automatically created for every application (i.e. seed, fertilizer, chemical, harvest) if you are integrated with John Deere or Climate FieldView that you can refer back to and see exactly what is happening, soon after it happens. All of these tickets then create reports that you can view telling you how much has been applied per field or farm, inventory remaining, and many other different aspects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

For me, the planning and budgeting is the least useful- so many things change throughout the year and most doesn't go according to plan. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Conservis has allowed us to keep all of our information on the farm in one place. We can access prices, products, all of our applications, analytical reports, purchases, cost per acre, and cost per bushel, among many other things. We really enjoy using the platform, and the customer service is remarkable. If you have any problems at all, the support team will walk you through it step-by-step. I highly recommend using Conservis as a platform to organize your agricultural company and make decisions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to quickly see and manage our inventory, and pull reports much faster than if we were to just use Excel or do it manually. We can make decisions much quicker. We are able to evaluate if field applications are cost effective, and analyze field trials with ease. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Response from Lisa Hines of Conservis

Thank you for the great review and honest feedback McKenna! It is great to see your farm getting great value from Conservis. I've shared your feedback on the planning and budgeting. We've actually released some new financial tools that tie the operational picture with the financial picture that may be helpful to even as your plans change. Your CSM will be reaching out.

Tracking grain inventory, work orders, new CDMS in Inputs Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not having a drop down for the crop year. Creating a login to track truck drivers or operators who do not use the system. FSA reporting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Utilize your support. They are right there to help. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking of grain and inputs. The need to review data entered for accuracy or the lacking of data is essential for the quality of the data. Once this is done, field application records are used for custom operations performed and tracking of inputs applied vs. physical inventory. Keeping track of the grain inventory is an essential piece for marketing and accounting for each load delivered. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are prepared to make an investment of your time, you will reap the return. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With the use of Conservis in our farming operation we have been able to create field plans and work orders, increasing organization, efficiency, and productivity, track inventory, creating ease of accounts payable and receivable, and develop an accrual budget, allowing our business to gather financial data for the crop year.

With the data we have gathered we are able to realize our actual cost of production per field. This provides our business the opportunity to optimize our grain marketing strategy. In addition, we are recognizing areas which require improvements, as well as areas which we are performing well. Overall we can use this as a tool to increase our profit margin while producing a quality product.

Conservis has also saved time with the reporting capability, including an FSA report. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Our record keeping is much more streamlined and efficient. I am easily and instantly able to access records and data that may be months or even years old. Before Conservis, accessing such archived information was very time consuming. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
