ABOUT US


The problems facing the agriculture industry are complex and continuously changing. Globalization, technological innovation, regulatory changes, demographic shifts, and environmental pressures are continually redrawing the competitive landscape. As technology evolves and gains greater traction in our everyday lives, the rural ag community is realizing the potential software has for addressing these challenges.

That’s where MyCropTechnologies steps in.

At MyCropTechnologies, we specialize in developing, implementing, and supporting web-based applications that help differentiate agencies and authorized insurance providers (AIPs) within the agricultural insurance market—positioning them at the forefront of the industry and futureproofing their businesses.

Our software solutions can track acreage and production; analyze precipitation patterns; compare insurance plans and options; gather, manage, analyze, and simplify data; visually review and revise crop data; and enforce policy and procedures—allowing agencies and AIPs to become more efficient and better serve their farmers.

Contact us today to find out how we can help your insureds more intelligently mitigate risk while growing your book of business!

OUR STORY & TIMELINE


MyCropTechnologies (sister company of Agworks, LLC, formed in 2010 by Rafe Hargrove, Ed King, Robert Gideon, Carl Gideon, and Scott Sell) was born out of a desire to provide agricultural insurance agents and their farmers with a cutting edge yet affordable way to interface with USDA’s crop insurance programs and privately-offered insurance solutions.

OUR STORY & TIMELINE


MyCropTechnologies (sister company of Agworks, LLC) was born out of a desire to provide agricultural insurance agents and their farmers with a cutting edge yet affordable way to interface with USDA’s crop insurance programs and privately-offered insurance solutions.

  • 2010: AgWorks, LLC is formed by Rafe Hargrove, Ed King, Robert Gideon, Carl Gideon, and Scott Sell after they decide to pool their knowledge of insurance and software development and create a company unlike anything in the marketplace. They saw an urgent need for an agricultural insurance software that was in line with current technology trends and projections yet easy to use.
  • 2011: The AgWorks Application Framework is released with support for major crops. Functionality is expanded over the next few years to support additional crops, plans of insurance, and private products. Several new AIPs join our customer base.
  • 2014: MyCropTechnologies, LLC (MCT) is formed to manage the AgWorks Application Framework including the monitoring and implementation of RMA programs and their regulatory changes.
  • 2015: MCT delivers real-time support in quoting and policy processing for changes introduced with the 2014 Farm Bill. These changes include Margin Protection, Whole Farm Revenue Protection, and Stacked Income Protection policies as well as the Supplemental Coverage Option and Beginning Farmer/Rancher benefits, just to name a few.
  • 2016: MCT overhauls the user interface of the AgWorks Application Framework—improving workflow, reducing clicks, and boosting overall system performance.
  • 2017: MCT expands the AgWorks Application Framework with an integrated mapping system, optimization of the quoting module, and initial development of eSignature platform to allow insureds and agents to electronically sign vital insurance forms.
  • 2018: MCT designs the Dairy Revenue Protection policy processing framework developed by AgWorks, which is deployed in conjunction with RMA’s release of the product. MCT continues to support and improve for the DRP software to meet regulatory changes. The mapping system supports CLU-based reporting.
  • 2019: MCT implements support for Multi-County Enterprise Units, Veteran Farmer/Rancher benefits, and companion policies and continues to develop and deliver industry-leading software solutions.

OUR CULTURE


We build products we believe inthat we’re excited about. We encourage our employees think outside the box, play with new concepts, and dip their toes in the impossible as some of our best projects started with “So, I’ve got this crazy idea…”

We put in long hours but recognize the power of play in spurring creativity, inspiring innovation, and feeding passion, so the old adage “work hard, play hard” has never rang truer.

Many of us work remotely, but others work in our Texas or Montana offices. We stay connected via video and text chat, regular phone conferences, annual meetings, and email so we know more than most about how the web is changing the workplace and business landscape.
