Where Can I Learn More About the Ag Industry Identification System (AGIIS)?

By Chris Crutchfield, AgGateway Member Services

While our column this month is for anybody who wants to learn more about AGIIS, I want to start with a quick request to current AGIIS subscribers. If you rely on AGIIS, would you please consider providing us with a quick testimonial sentence or two, so we can share your successes and promote wider adoption? Contact us at Member.Services@AgGateway.org – it’s easy and quick!

And now, a message to those who aren’t as familiar with AgGateway’s Ag Industry Identification System (AGIIS). AGIIS is a database that houses unique identifiers and common data elements to help facilitate eBusiness within the ag industry. If you want to better understand AGIIS, how it works, and how other organizations are realizing cost savings, reduced labor hours and reduced data entry errors, you can find a wealth of information here on the AGIIS page of the AgGateway website.

Here are some of the helpful resources:

  • The AGIIS 101 presentation gives a basic understanding of unique identifiers, the building blocks that enable eBusiness.
  • A helpful 2-page fact sheet explains what AGIIS is, what it is not, and further explains the benefits of using AGIIS.
  • Want to hear how others in the ag industry are using AGIIS and how it has improved their operations? Take a look at this short video with testimonials from AGIIS users.
  • For more detail, this AGIIS whitepaper describes how eBusiness in agriculture has evolved over time and how AGIIS is a key part of the solution to the challenges facing ag partners today.
  • Explore AGIIS: You can also explore the AGIIS database without making a financial commitment. Everyone has access to Global Trade Items Numbers, Global Location Numbers, and their associated demographics. For more, check out our Non-Subscriber access to unique identifiers.

I encourage anyone who wants to learn how AGIIS can serve your business to visit the AGIIS webpage.
