EFC Systems Inc., a provider of software for agricultural retailers, announced it has purchased the assets of AgSolver Inc. in Ames. The move establishes a new Agronomic Planning and Sustainability Division at EFC Systems that AgSolver co-founder Dave Muth will oversee as vice president. The technology and team of 12 that comes to EFC Systems from AgSolver will be a significant expansion to its efforts to help agricultural retailers and growers in both planning and sustainability efforts, EFC said in a release. The acquisition also establishes an Ames location for the company, allowing for expansion with additional merchant ag and client services team members. "We are excited about this strategically important acquisition as it accelerates our presence in more sophisticated agronomic planning, capitalizing on our wide market access and making use of information from both our ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and Precision solutions," said Ernie Chappell, CEO and founder of EFC Systems. The company has clients in 47 states and in Canada through a related company.
