Over the past several years, AgGateway's Crop Nutrition Council has achieved notable successes, including eConnectivity for contracts, ordering, shipping and invoicing, which is complete among several distributors and manufacturers. The council has also created a return-on-investment (ROI) value calculator to further demonstrate the potential savings companies can achieve today by connecting electronically.
