Sam K.
Easy to Learn, Easier to Use Traction has simplified our accounting, field records, inventories and grain storage tracking. by bringing it into one program, instead of multiple spreadsheets. ☺I can see field by field profit and write a check with just a few clicks. ☹Adding field records would be better if I could apply to multiple fields at the same time but input a specific amount of acres for each field that was partially covered.
Hinnerk W.
Built by folks who understand farming! Good experience and they have a knowledgable and helpful team. ☺I like the ease of use; it’s easy to drill down and see the detail when you need to. Also like the crop year based accounting so I really know how that crop year performed; this is way more informative than a calendar year system. Also like that its cloud based; you are not tied to one computer and you are able to open multiple tabs. ☹It’s a young software that does the basic blocking and tackling very well, and even though they don’t have every feature today, they are listening well and building new features continuously.

Traction Review Customer support is excellent. Onboarding of this type of software is very involved and the company is well-resourced to support the customer during this process. ☺Data integrations are the best feature – with the bank, but also to automatically gather field activity data. ☹Traction is in early stages and there are several accounting and management features that they will be adding over the next several months and years.
Patrick K.
Traction software review ☺The fact that they are working toward what the old farmworks software did but making it easier to get the information the old farmworks software provides ☹As with software this new there are alot of features that need to be addressed yet and they are working toward them it just takes time

January 2023 review of Traction for our farm Staff has been very detailed and excellent to work with. They have several videos available to assist in set up, designs and functions of their software. They also will respond very quickly on the chat box or via video conference call. ☺I really like the ability to quickly enter income and expense items with full data to reflect proper inventory and financial management. Also the ability to link in to our bank accounts and upload invoices and crop settlements, which can easily be revisited and printed at later dates. Revisiting the detailed invoices on equipment repairs comes in very handy in verifying parts installed on equipment. ☹Traction is working on taking data to the machinery management level that I desire to have, such as filters, parts inventories linked to equipment models that we own. Also maintain equipment records, hopefully can tie into equipment manufacture’s maintenance record templates at some point. Then all my records would be in one location.

Great Product Customer support is excellent. ☺It is web based and integrates with JD oops center and automatically does payroll ☹It is still young and missing some functionally that I would like.
Matt D.
Newer product striving to be the best software package for agriculture. Overall, I am very pleased with traction, and I am excited to see how this software package evolves. I have tried many software packages and spreadsheets in the past, and none have come close to the ambitious goal of being the “one stop shop” for Farm management software ☺Farming software has always been segregated. Some dealt with financial data, and some dealt with field records. And for the most part, we were left on our own for accounting to use generic business software. But Traction aims to finally be the missing link between all these areas. It has an awesome accounting package, mixed with very capable field records, and a polished, completely online package. Also, they are continuously rolling out new features. ☹Like any new software, even my own spreadsheets, there is a learning curve to adjust to the thought process behind many tasks. Fortunately, Traction provides fantastic support, whether by a live person, or videos, to guide me through the learning process.

Traction Software Review It has fit the void in an easy to use ag accounting and management software. Great customer support. ☺It is easy to set up and easy to use. The software has a good basis for accounting and draws in the field operations and inventory use. The customer support is great. ☹A work in progress but worth waiting for each aspect that is coming out every couple of months.
Nathan a.
2 month review Very good customer support during trial period. Hope that continues now that I purchased the nun package ☺Ease of use and ability to link to financial accounts for auto transaction import ☹Wish there was a feature to create rules to auto categorize transactions based in store or who was paid
Brian T.
Transition from Farmworks to Traction ☺I like the ability to integrate multiple entities in one software product with one subscription. Also the ability to link bank accounts and credit cards for downloading transactions saves time. The ability to allocate income and expenses to track profitability is very important. ☹Missing some advanced features on the accounting, such as accrual financial statements, market value balance sheet, accounts payable/receivable functionality.
