“We were drowning in spreadsheets. iRely’s software will improve efficiencies across the board, reducing duplicate work and automating many of the time consuming tasks we once had to handle manually.”
Fort Wayne, IN (PRWEB) April 20, 2012
iRely LLC, a leading developer of commodity software solutions, announced today a partnership with Heartland Country Co-op to implement a comprehensive business software system.
Founded in 1940, Heartland Country Co-op, based in Westby, Wisconsin, services a variety of local industries, including agronomy, feed, heating & air conditioning, convenience store, hardware store and petroleum businesses. iRely was chosen due to its innovative technology, breadth and depth of business function, and its proven history of commitment to customer service.
With iRely software, Heartland will have access to real time data that can be used to improve office efficiencies and foster better communication between its three offices and various departments. While previous tasks like grain ticket input were done manually and reentered, operators will now be able to record this data directly to the iRely platform via an onsite terminal.
“As a growing co-op, we needed a way to integrate all the information we collect into one easy-to-use system,” Peggy Fortun, Office Manager of Heartland, said. “We were drowning in spreadsheets. iRely’s software will improve efficiencies across the board, reducing duplicate work and automating many of the time consuming tasks we once had to handle manually.”
iRely also presented the best solution as its system is well-suited to managing multiple business operations under one roof. Moreover, the platform is easily scalable to allow Heartland to seamlessly bring onboard additional users and companies to the system.
Other software benefits Heartland plans to leverage will include timely inventory management, employee tracking, e-commerce sales and the ability to send ticket information electronically.
“We are very excited to add Heartland Country Co-op as a customer,” said George Olney, iRely COO. “Giving employees and co-op members access to real time data is an essential tool for success today. We believe our software will be the perfect fit for their organization.”
