3 reasons operators prefer Ambrook

It’s simple yet comprehensive

My accountant likes QBO, but I can’t figure it out.

You should never feel lost managing a fundamental piece of your operation. That’s why we designed our software farmer-first. It’s a full-featured program powerful enough for an accountant yet simple enough for the everyday operator.

It’s built for agriculture

QBO is not geared toward our industry.

On a fundamental level, QuickBooks Online is incompatible with ag tax forms. With Ambrook, you can personalize your setup to track what’s meaningful to you, knowing that under the hood tax prep is happening automatically.

It makes insights accessible

I couldn’t get anything out of QBO, so I stopped.

Ambrook makes capturing and preparing financial data easy and efficient, which unlocks useful, accurate reports, like enterprise-level P&Ls, your balance sheet, and more. Finally, you can get more out than you put in.

    Customer Story

    JG Livestock

    275 acres · Madison, VA

    Now, if I have downtime, I pull out my phone and just start tagging expenses. I can say this was a feed expense and it was tied to the Stocker enterprise and all of a sudden I can start doing managerial accounting looking at each enterprise and determining which is the most profitable. And I can do it out in the field.
