Barchart and EFC Systems Announce Integration Partnership for Digital Agriculture

CHICAGO, IL - November 15, 2022 - Barchart, a commodity data and technology leader trusted by over 600 agribusinesses representing over 2,000 grain facilities, and EFC Systems, a leading provider of ERP accounting and digital agronomy solutions for Ag Retailer / Service Providers, have together announced a new partnership.

Under the first phase of this partnership, real-time grain accounting information from EFC Systems’ Merchant Ag platform will be available within Barchart’s award-winning AgTech platform, Marketplace Apps.  Data from Merchant Ag will flow between Barchart’s producer-facing mobile apps built for agribusinesses and grain merchandising workflows built into cmdtyView; Barchart’s leading trading and analytics platform for commodities.

“Simplifying the technology stack used in Ag Retail saves time and improves accuracy for Ag Retailers,” says Ernie Chappell, Founder and President of EFC Systems. “Partnerships like this are the center of data interoperability, which drives a more efficient and intelligent supply chain.”

This powerful integration of EFC Systems’ Merchant Ag platform into Barchart’s digital tools, allows agribusiness to engage more effectively with their growers, streamlines grain trading workflows for agribusinesses, and provides them with increased operational efficiency.

“We are excited to partner with EFC Systems to provide additional choice and enhanced services to our customers, and this partnership with EFC Systems enables us to further deliver on this goal,” said Barchart CEO Mark Haraburda.  “Barchart and EFC Systems are customer-focused, both with the mission to provide the best digital solutions to their agribusiness clients.  We are excited to continue growing this partnership into the future.”  

Phase two of the partnership will feature the integration of Barchart’s offer and hedge management workflows into EFC Systems’ Merchant Ag and FieldAlytics solutions.  This integration will allow users to digitize their offer book and streamline their risk management, contracting and hedging workflows.
