Linkfresh Signs Major Software Deal

Linkfresh, a provider of food supply chain software, has signed a major deal with FamilyFarms Group that could be worth up to $5 million in joint revenues.

FamilyFarms Group is a farmer-owned organization that delivers business solutions for agricultural producers with a goal of “keeping families on the farm.” The company works with producers in 19 US states and four Canadian provinces and will introduce LINKFRESH ERP software to help members improve processes, maximize profits and remain competitive, according to company officials.

“Crop agriculture is changing. To think, we as crop producers, can use old technology in a precision ag environment and succeed is a mistake,” said FamilyFarms Group CEO, Allen Lash. “At FamilyFarms Group, we researched several ERP platforms and chose Microsoft Dynamics NAV and LINKFRESH. LINKFRESH is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and has more ERP experience than anyone else in the vegetable, fruit and food industry.”
