Vertical Software’s roots begin in 1983. A manager at a river elevator in Pekin, Illinois was looking for a better way to account for grain deliveries, settlements, and shipments. A group of individuals known for their computer skills were assembled to develop a product. It wasn’t long before management realized that to be successful, more experience was needed from the grain industry. Soon experts from all segments of the grain industry were added. From this group of individuals representing both the computer and grain industry came “GrainTrac”, theStandard of Excellence for Grain Accounting Software. GrainTrac is the only grain accounting software designed, developed and supported by experts from the grain industry. Soon GrainTrac was installed in a large segment of the grain industry in over 30 states and Canada. GrainTrac is used by River Terminals, Country Elevators, Grain Processors, Cereal Makers, Grain Trading Houses, Feed Lots, Flour Mills and Ethanol Plants.

This man’s desire for a faster and more efficient way of doing business is how Vertical Software got started.

A multi-user version of GrainTrac became available in 1986. Personal computer local area networks (LAN) give employees a method of sharing work details and the resulting data.

In 1989, Vertical Software added the Red Wing financial accounting system. This system integrates with the GrainTrac and GrainClerk systems to provide complete financial reporting.
