Making management decisions about acquiring and financing farm equipment in today’s high cost market can be an overwhelming task, but thanks to tools like the AgDirect Mobile app, producers can quickly estimate their costs and ensure their payments align with what they can afford.
As an all-in-one equipment financing tool, AgDirect Mobile allows users to access current AgDirect interest rates, calculate individual payment quotes and compare payment options side-by-side from their mobile phone or tablet.
“When AgDirect Mobile was first rolled out in 2012, there were various payment calculator apps available, but none of them were geared toward the ag equipment industry,” says Chris Steinkamp, Iowa AgDirect territory manager.
“Our goal was to give dealers and customers direct access to all the tools they need to explore their financing options while affording them the ability to operate remotely with a mobile-friendly platform that was simple and easy to use,” he says.
Enhancing the user experience
The basic functionality of the AgDirect Mobile app allows users to calculate both loan and lease payments on an annual, semiannual, quarterly or monthly basis.
Other key features include access to real time interest rates, a downloadable lease residual matrix, cost/hour versus cost/acre comparisons, and the ability to save and compare finance options, or email and text payment quotes.
The app also includes Secure Snap, a digital tool that allows AgDirect equipment salespeople to securely send driver’s license images, financial documents and other personal information to the AgDirect finance team using their mobile device.
“In today’s business world, customers expect an immediate response,” says Steinkamp. “With AgDirect Mobile, producers have all the tools they need at their fingertips to figure out their payment scheduling using one app.”
“At AgDirect we’re always trying to stay ahead of the curve and keep up with customer demand,” he says. “We are committed to helping users get the most value out of the app so they can improve efficiency and remain competitive.”
