After a year of development, the new platform has been implemented across AgriCharts' client base and is now available to new clients. The new platform takes website hosting and content management to the next level, and has made the process of building and managing a professional website for agribusinesses, like grain elevators, brokers and service providers, easier and faster than ever before.
"AgriCharts offers the latest in web technology, content and design, which has been achieved through state-of-the-art hosting facilities, constant enhancements and listening to the needs of our clients," said Eero Pikat, President of AgriCharts.

The user interface for managing a website was also redesigned to provide more intuitive displays and navigation. In addition, important functionality for website managers like integrated search was added, as well as the ability to easily import files from a legacy hosting platform.
"We've focused a lot of attention on simplifying the process for an agribusiness to build a bigger and better website, which usually involves transitioning from an old hosting platform," said Mark Haraburda, AgriCharts Managing Director. "We've developed both technical functionality and customer service procedures for making this process easy, fast and reliable," added Haraburda.
