ELEVATOR

Grain Management System

Full-featured software service for small to medium-scale grain operators

Cloud-based, affordable and easy to use

ELEVATOR GMS

Our software service covers the full spectrum of elevator activities from receiving grain at the scale to shipping it to a terminal. We help you keep up with each ticket from the time it is entered until it is settled and the producer receives a check. The customer settlement we produce is simple to understand and shows summary and detail information for all of the tickets that a customer is settling.

On the outbound side, you can easily see just what was shipped to selected destinations, who was responsible for the hauling, and any docks and discounts that were taken by the terminal. The inventory module allows you to see exactly how much of any grain is at your site at any given point in time and provides the details of whether the grain is on open storage, deferred pricing, or owned by the elevator. A daily position report may be produced for any time period for your personal use or for any inspection entity that might be visiting your facility.

Our Grain Management System will allow you to move away from manually tracking your grain elevator inventories with unwieldy spreadsheets and move to a reliable software solution that will increase the productivity and efficiency of your operation and the satisfaction of your customers.

We appreciate you visiting us online and invite you to explore the opportunities provided by this exceptional software product.

Elevator GMS – System Modules

ELEVATOR

The first module is called ELEVATOR and is where incoming grain is processed. This is the area where you enter customer information and incoming scale tickets, produce settlements, print incoming grain reports, sell stored grain, and all of the other functions associated with incoming grain.

Customer information, including customer names, addresses, farm information and contracts, are maintained here. Customer settlements as well as numerous other reports are also produced by this component. If you need to know how much grain was received during the last week, you can obtain that information with a few keystrokes.

SHIPPER

SHIPPER is the second major area of the system and is used to enter and maintain information about grain that is leaving your facility. It can provide you with information about grain destinations, shipping agents, freight costs associated with the transport, and many other types of data.

This component allows you to enter outbound tickets as they exit your facility and later enter the information that was supplied by the destination elevator where the grain was delivered. It is easy to see any discrepancies between what you say was shipped and what the other party says was received. This module also includes a number of other reports.

DAILY POSITION

The final component of the system is known as DAILY and is where you keep up with the position of each of your grains. Information may be automatically transferred from the incoming (ELEVATOR) and outgoing (SHIPPER) tickets so that you do not need to re-enter this information a second time.

You may also make manual adjustments to any position as are required. The main reports in this section are designed to show your position and liability information and are quite useful to the grain inspectors when they are reviewing your situation.

Pricing

Our ELEVATOR Grain Management System is offered as a software subscription and is hosted on servers in the cloud.

Our servers are maintained in a secure data center and are accessible from a Windows desktop in any location with an Internet connection.

The subscription requires an initial one-time setup fee and an economical monthly subscription fee based on the size of your elevator and the number of concurrent users of the service that you require.

Pricing begins at $100/month for a subscription with up to three (3) concurrent users. The setup fee for this configuration is $250.

Free Trial

We offer a free, 15-day trial period for you to fully evaluate the service and its applicability to your business. The trial includes sample data, a detailed instruction manual, and a link to our online training videos that we have created to help new users in the evaluation process.

If, during your 15-day trial period, you decide to continue with the software service, simply notify our office and we will set up and activate your subscription and begin billing you for the setup and subscription.

If we have not heard back from you by the end of the 15-day trial, your trial will be discontinued automatically.

Customer Support

Included in the subscription price is a reasonable amount of support and training. A detailed instruction manual is included with the software as well as a link to several online videos we have created to teach new users how to use the system.

We also provide a limited amount of test/sample data that allows you to quickly evaluate the usefulness of the product. This data can be easily removed with just a few keystrokes, and you may begin adding your own data when you desire.

Enhancements and updates to the software are made periodically and are included in the subscription price.

We do require that users have an active subscription in order to continue receiving telephone support.

We make every effort to take your calls personally. When we are not available, we have a voice mail system and do our best to respond to your call within two business days.

About Us

Tom King Consulting is a small, family-based business located just outside of Denton, Texas. The business was founded by Tom King in the early 1980s. We lost Tom in early 2016, and since that time, the business has been operated by his wife, Sara, and son, Scott. Tom developed and supplied software for well over four decades, and Scott has been doing the same since the late 1970s. We have deliberately maintained our size and structure in order to maintain reasonable prices and to try to offer the kind of personal service that we appreciate from others.

A Brief Look at Our History

In the early 1980s, Tom received a request to develop a software product to help manage the wheat harvest from his brother-in-law who was operating a grain elevator in Graham, Texas. Tom had been in the computer business for well over twenty years at the time, and after a certain amount of persuasion, he agreed to put something together that would benefit his brother-in-law as well as his sister-in-law who was doing most of the office work. That was the rudimentary beginnings of the Grain Management System that we offer today.

During the next few years, there was some interest shown by other operators, and the system gradually increased in functionality and scope. By about 1988, there was enough interest in the system to gather a number of elevator operators and determine what was required to produce a commercial software product. With their encouragement and support, we went through a complete re-design and re-development of the entire system. At that time, the system we redesigned to use a relational database and was completely DOS based. As we began to see some success in the marketplace during the decade of the 90s, we were issuing new releases of the software about once a year.

In the late 1990s, it became apparent that we would need to make the conversion to Windows. That entailed another major re-design and re-writing of the system and turned out to be the most extensive conversion that we had done to date, requiring a major investment into the product. Even though we had to increase the price slightly, we continued to sell the product for much less than all of our larger competitors. Throughout this period, we continued to make enhancements and improvements to the product and maintained the ability to run under the various versions of Microsoft Windows that have been released.

In 2015, we began offering a cloud-based subscription version of the software, and by early 2017 we anticipate that all of our active customers will be using our cloud-based offering.

M – M Consulting -M – M Consulting #mm #consulting

Our People

M M Consulting is a team of subject matter experts; we give practical advice and we work efficiently. Many of our staff have been with us for a decade or more, adding further value to our client relationships.

News and Publications

Stay up to date with industry news and with M M’s original newsletter, Practical Compliance. M M clients also have access to original content including the M M Survivors’ Guides, comprehensive resource guides on a variety of regulatory compliance topics.

Our Services

M M Consulting provides comprehensive risk management services for financial institutions. Our robust audit programs go far beyond a “check the box” review at a very competitive price.

M M stands for Momentum. We help make financial institutions stronger by getting risk management right. Our company is a team of subject matter experts working collaboratively for the benefit of our clients. We go the distance every day to provide prompt, timely research. We protect the present while assuring the future.

Get the answers you ve been looking for.

If you have questions or are interested knowing more about how we can help, please add your information below:

Momentum

The feeling you get when the team is working together, accomplishing goals, free to focus on excellence. Not just meeting but exceeding expectations in multiple ways.

The work of community-based financial institutions is the important work of our time, the building and rebuilding of new economies that can compete in the 21 st century. Communities can only thrive with great financial institutions, and great financial institutions need great teams.

M M stands for Momentum. We help make financial institutions stronger by getting risk management right. Our company is a team of subject matter experts working collaboratively for the benefit of our clients. We go the distance every day to provide prompt, timely research. We protect the present while assuring the future.

FDICIA

Institutions that are approaching $1 Billion in assets need to comply with FDICIA – as part of this the institution will need to adopt a framework for internal controls – M M Consulting has helped several clients develop strategies to comply with FDICIA requirements and make the leap into this higher level of internal controls without spending a fortune or adding to staff.

ALLL

ALLL calculations are about to change with CECL, adding to the conflicts that can exist between the regulators who care about safety and soundness and the accountants who worry about compliance with FASB rules – sometimes the two interests don’t seem to jibe. M M can assist with ensuring that all accounting standards are met when calculating the ALLL and when identifying problem assets – impaired loans and TDRs. M M has also helped clients navigate the challenges of returning problem credits to accrual status and in dealing with the vagaries of purchase accounting.

AML

M M staff go the extra mile on AML validation audits — Regulators are looking more closely at the automated software that institutions use to assist in their anti-money laundering efforts. If the system is not set up properly then it won’t give meaningful alerts – it will produce either too many or not enough. Increasingly the regulators want to see an independent audit of the AML software. M M staff took this to heart and attended user conferences for several of the leading providers of AML software. We wanted to truly understand the way that these platforms are built in order to help our clients get the best results from these powerful tools.

TRID

TRID – it’s complex and sometimes frustrating – some lenders have even taken to calling it “DIRT” – M M was ahead of the curve on TRID by providing conferences, webinars and guidance documents in 2014 and continuing through the October 1, 2015 TRID implementation date up to today – M M even published The Survivor’s Guide to TRID” back in the summer of 2014 and trained our 2015 Compliance Conference participants on TRID for a day and a half. Our Answer Person hotline was fully staffed for the implementation date and remains available every day for M M clients to pose questions and get answers in writing.

Compliance Audit

Regulatory compliance is changing – quickly. M M’s staff is constantly adding to its audit templates to not only keep up with the regulations but to perform valuable and meaningful services for our clients. M M was an early adopter of the Compliance Audit frameworks that regulators look for today. Our audit programs meet regulatory standards and have been accepted by all of the federal regulators and by state examiners as well. But M M also believes in education and advice; we help our clients avoid the pitfalls and violations in the first place!

Welcome to Open Campus! #mcse, #mct, #mcp, #microsoft #certified, #systems #engineer,

#

Our Mission.

The mission of RCCD Distance Education (formerly Open Campus) is to extend access to learning through distance education. Objectives: To facilitate learning at a distance, Distance Education provides:

  • Educational technology to the colleges, faculty, and students to support the delivery of online-based courses and services
  • Professional development and training for faculty
  • Expertise and experience
  • Blackboard management, production and problem solving.

As of April 21, the Open Campus department has changed its name to Distance Education. We thank you for your patience as we work to complete the changes to website by the middle of summer.

What Are Online Based or Distance Education classes?

Online-based courses, also called Distance Education classes, may take two different forms:

Online classes are taken exclusively over the Internet. Please note that, while some online courses provide all instructional content over the Internet, others may require some on-campus meetings. Please see the course schedule or WebAdvisor for more information.

Hybrid classes meet both on campus and online. Think of them as a combination or blending of online classes and face-to-face classes.

In a hybrid class, you will attend meetings on campus during the dates and times listed in the schedule of classes. Since the on-campus portion of hybrid classes could take place at any of our three colleges (Riverside City, Norco or Moreno Valley), hybrid classes are listed in the schedule by the college where the on-campus meetings will take place.

Are there Face-to-Face classes that use the Internet?

Web-Enhanced classes are traditional face-to-face classes that are supplemented with course websites and the use of Internet resources. Unlike hybrid or fully-online classes, all web-enhanced class meetings take place on campus.

Where Do I Start?

These organizations support diverse causes such as medical research, support for animals, women’s rights and healthcare, early childhood education, support services for veterans, as well as many other causes.

A new benefit introduced to all employees in 2012 allows each employee to choose a charitable organization for Sagacious to make a donation to on their behalf. As Sagacious has continued to grow, this has allowed the amount of contributions, as well as the organizations benefiting from these contributions, to grow substantially over time. Please see the graphic to the right for Sagacious’ annual contributions since inception.

“This has been a very positive impact to our organization and I do feel that we would not be so successful if he would not have been part of the project.”

“She hit the ground running. Her experience paid immediate dividends.”

“As a former Epic TS, he was effective and productive for us from the first hour in our organization. He was always finishing ahead of time or on time.”

“Not all Epic consultants are created equal and he definitely can cover a wide array of topics.”

“He has a very in depth understanding of the Epic system and was able to apply his knowledge to help us with many issues.”

“Her deep knowledge of Epic Willow has made her an extremely valuable member of the team.

“Extremely efficient and thorough.” “Very efficient, effective, knowledgeable, thorough.”

“He has been so willing to take on as much as we give him, with great outcomes.”

“I was not expecting to be able to complete as many issues as we were able to.”

“Willing to help on issues not assigned to him and able to provide details of issue that we would get from our EPIC TS. This saved us time on resolution.”

“She was extremely helpful to everyone.”

“He was constantly finishing issues that needed to be completed regardless if it was for Claims, HB, or anyone else that asked for his help

Sagacious Consultants has worked with over 100 Epic healthcare organizations across the nation. These organizations range from the largest of hospital networks to smaller, physician practice only organizations. The projects range from full life-cycle implementations to upgrades and from big-bang installs to rollouts. We have provided clients with consultants in nearly every application. We are more than happy to provide referrals upon request.

Blue Sky Consulting Group #advanced #analytical #consulting #group

#

The Blue Sky Consulting Group is a public policy and economics consulting firm specializing in strategic and analytical services for public, not-for-profit, and private sector clients. Our team of subject matter experts and staff come from the highest levels of government, academia and the private sector to assist clients with strategic or analytical challenges across a broad range of practice areas. From providing strategic advice to elected officials to analyzing complex programmatic, fiscal or economic issues, the Blue Sky Consulting Group brings an unrivaled level of experience, analytical rigor, and strategic problem-solving ability to bear on the most challenging issues our clients confront.

Featured Publication

Accountable Communities for Health (ACHs) are place-based initiatives in which community, clinical, and policy strategies are coordinated with the aim of improving health outcomes and controlling health care costs. The multi-sector nature of ACHs combines strategies addressing specific chronic diseases or other health conditions in a mutually reinforcing way. The framework provides a methodology or “road map” for communities, funders, or government agencies interested in conducting an evaluation of local ACH initiatives or understanding and interpreting the results of such an evaluation. Click here to read the full report.

Featured Projects

BSCG assisted the State Treasurer s Office with an analysis of affordability and financing issues related to the Bay Delta Conservation Plan Conveyance Facility (aka the Delta tunnels). The BDCP is an ambitious and controversial habitat conservation plan proposed by the governor involving the construction of two large, underground tunnels intended to transport water from the Sacramento River around the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Our report was intended to provide a context for better public understanding of the potential costs of the project and an assessment of whether those costs are affordable for the water contractors and their customers who are expected to pay for the project. In addition the report explores a number of critical issues related to financing the cost of construction through revenue bonds and risks associated with that financing.

Addressing poverty is one of the most important and most challenging issues counties confront. This report identifies several promising, research based strategies that can be employed at the county level to reduce poverty. This report further examines the impact of a county-level living wage policy, including information about the number and types of workers affected and the likely cost to the county to implement such a policy.

The managers of the state s 529 college savings program, known as Scholarshare, sought assistance in estimating the fiscal and economic effects of adopting a tax credit to encourage additional saving for college. Our analysis showed how many additional Californians would open accounts in response to the tax credit and how much more existing participants would save. We also estimated the economic effects of such a program, and determined the cost to the state s general fund.

The State Treasurer’s Office is relying on the regulations and evaluation criteria we helped develop to award sales tax exclusions to qualified manufacturers of solar panels, fuel cells, electric cars, and other alternative energy and advanced transportation technologies.

Next 10’s Budget Challenge engages Californians in the state’s crisis-plagued budgeting process. The nonpartisan internet tool allows users to call the shots on how much to spend on schools, prisons and other state programs – and how to pay for them. We have provided up-to-date policy options and budget figures for the project since 2007.

Uncover Hidden Revenue in Your Dental Practice
