Diversified Crop Insurance Services (DCIS) President, Ron Miiller, announced today that an agreement was made to form a strategic partnership with CropTrak, an innovative software company whose focus is streamlining the data collection process, protecting the client’s data, and helping farmers simplify the preparation of regulatory, compliance, vendor, and farm specific reports.
“Forming this relationship with CropTrak enables us to continue to provide World Class service to our agents and farming customers,” provided Jeff Baumgart, DCIS National Marketing Manager. With continued need for more detailed reporting processes required for federal programs, DCIS is taking a proactive approach to assisting farmers with the collection and organization of that data by working directly with CropTrak to provide farmers with an easy to use mobile FMIS application which will communicate directly with the DCIS Crop Insurance Advantage (CIA) program.
“We are delighted to work with a company and staff who put America’s farmers first,” said Miiller. “Working together, we can combine the data collected through CropTrak with the expertise of our crop insurance specialists to help farmers find solutions that best fit the needs of their operations. It’s a win-win and another reason why DCIS is one of the fastest growing crop insurance providers in the industry.”

To Provide Mobile Farm Management Information System
The CropTrak FMIS is a native application for almost all mobile devices and is designed for use in the field with or without cellular service. ARMtech agents will be able to utilize the system to download information from AgriNet®, increasing the efficiency of the acreage and production reporting processes. In addition to reporting, the application has been enhanced to facilitate the explosion in precision agriculture for use in USDA programs.
Referencing the cutting-edge technology, ARMtech Vice President of Systems and Software Jay Rushing commented, “The CropTrak system is one of the most innovative products we have seen and complements our reputation as a technology leader in the crop insurance industry. Given the complexity of the crop insurance program, it is almost unheard of for someone outside of the industry to develop a product to enhance our service delivery, but we believe CropTrak has done just that.”
Since 2009, Arizona-based CropTrak has developed its mobile FMIS to collect, protect, and report the electronic records associated with agronomy, food safety, compliance, and sustainability initiatives. They pride themselves on their success in reducing paper records, and by partnering with ARMtech, CropTrak will expand their capabilities with respect to selling and servicing crop insurance policies, a historically paper-intensive process.
Currently the fifth largest writer of federally sponsored crop insurance policies in the United States, ARMtech Insurance Services, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Endurance Specialty Holdings, Ltd. ARMtech is committed to providing its agents and policyholders with innovative tools to improve the accuracy and efficiency of their operations.
“We at ARMtech are excited about the new capabilities that our partnership with CropTrak will provide,” said Michael Smith, CEO of ARMtech Insurance Services, Inc. “Not only does it build upon ARMtech’s reputation as an innovator in crop insurance technologies, but it gives us yet another platform our agents can use to service their customers both accurately and efficiently.”
ARMtech and CropTrak are working on the integration of the CropTrak product with AgriNet® and the new application is expected to be available to ARMtech agents beginning in 2017.
