Sarah Alexander, Arable Product Manager at Farmplan says, "For Farmplan, Gatekeeper Express marked the beginning of a shift to not only modernise its crop recording offerings by going fully web-based, but to work more closely with customers and the market as a whole, to produce a solution that can offer real flexibility, mobility and time-saving benefits. Of course Gatekeeper Express was the first step towards this goal helping users meet simple record keeping requirements but now Farmplan are delighted to announce that Gatekeeper Express Plus is also available."

In this version the team have also added in a wealth of additional reporting tools including crop gross margin, crop growing valuation and stock valuation.

Sarah adds, "Not only have Farmplan now got a range of solutions that are fully web-based but we will shortly be launching a mobile partner app too, so users can keep and review records on the go."
