the Ultimate Bean Counter

From the cab of a combine to crop genetics and drones, the agricultural industry has seen tremendous advancements in technology in recent years. But, what about your backend software? If you’re an ag retailer, it’s likely the application you’re running the business with is more than 20 years old. Our team at Stoneridge Software has taken a singular interest in ag retailers, co-ops, and processors. We went as far as creating a separate company called Levridge, dedicated to building the ideal solution to handle your complex needs. Our team has devoted countless hours and energy to this mission. We stepped up to the challenge with a team full of problem solvers who have a passion for creating a business application that will meet your needs in a modern and efficient way.

Built on top of the Microsoft Dynamics platform Levridge is a cloud-based product, so your employees and clients can access it anywhere, anytime.

The Levridge solution for ag retailers is an end-to-end accounting, operations and customer relationship management solution, aimed at modernizing the ag retail business.
