Cloud or local installation
A single system from field to fork, no matter where you fit in.
Buying Direct From The Field
Companies that buy direct from the field, where the purchase price is based on the packout or applied from a sample of the load. Tickets identify the purchase amounts and compute taxes, deductions, and other company accruals. Ticket data is used to create all the regulatory reporting.
Manufacturers & Value-Added Processors
Companies producing WIP products and finished goods, including combining multiple items to produce one or more finished goods. Production management and costing are critical. Products are often transferred between multiple facilities, requiring real-time inventory in each facility.
Distributors, Importers, & Resellers
Companies buying bulk product for sale out of multiple 3PL facilities. Visibility to inbound purchase orders is key to managing real time inventory. Flexible costing is required to provide accurate profit analysis. Easy access to the sales system to manage complex brokerage, rebates, and delivered freight is essential.
Generic business software doesn’t understand your fruit, nut, &/or vegetable business, NorthScope was built for it.

Your job is more complicated than just taking care of customers and buying, processing, and selling fruit, nuts and vegetables. You also need to prioritize keeping your farmers, harvesters, and haulers happy, so they stay with you and not the “other guys”. Your Grower Accounting software should prioritize this as well.
- You don’t just need an AP system; you need a Delivery Ticket System that manages Delivery Tickets including purchase price, taxes, and deductions.
- You don’t just need a Ticket system; you need a Ticket System that automates all your price lists, deductions, and accruals.
- You need a Ticket System that manages harvesting and hauling expenses.
- You don’t just need to manage grower balances; you need to easily process Grower Settlements.
- You don’t just need to process delivery tickets; you need to reprice them throughout the season.
- You don’t just need an accounting system, you need a fruit, vegetable and nut processing ERP system that can track your inventory, manage your sales process, and auto-calculate brokerage to avoid overpaying.
You need accounting software, grower accounting software, inventory software, sales software, lot traceability software and more all rolled in one. Read More
