It’s hard not to be involved with the Ag industry in the central valley. We work with a number of growers, packing houses, and supporting services for Ag.

We have worked with AgStar and Famous for growers, and Nutware for Pistacio packing.

We have developed and supported custom software for several packing house clients including Nichols Farms and LoBue Bros.¬† We are familiar with installing and configuring NAV, Great Plains, and Best’s MAS accounting software. We have set up and provided support for complex Payroll systems, integrating biometric readers used in harsh environments.

We have set up remote access system for work in the field.

We have assisted with setting up RFID systems and wireless networks with barcoding.

We have found ways to get internet access to packing houses well out of town, and work closely with local Wireless Internet providers to troubleshoot connectivity issues.

We have worked with clients to develop online websites with shopping carts, and integrated them with their financial systems.

“I am particularly impressed by the broad array of skills and services you provide. Hardware recommendations, purchasing, installation, and setup have saved us from overpaying for unnecessary equipment yet met our needs. …Our network conversion from Novell network to Microsoft Server has been painless and safe, as you methodically moved applications from one system to the other.

… The last database project has truly shown off your skills. Not only is this project difficult from a databases programming standpoint, it involved integrating numerous hardware solutions into a user friendly system operated by non-computer literate (and often, not English speaking) personnel. Some of the hardware solutions provided by you included computer cabling recommendations, hardware, and installation (a combination of fiber optic and cat 5 cabling) interfacing a 2000 lb. scale with the database program, selection and installation of rugged environmental computers, touch pad screen installation and associated database programming, and selection of scanning equipment, label printers, and scanning software. This has truly been a large project, and one in which we have saved much time, money, and headaches by your research into both hardware and software solutions. In addition you forced us to truly define what we wanted to accomplish before we got too far down the wrong path.”
