Ranch Manager - Cloud Services
The Ranch Manager Cloud Service allows wireless transfer between devices. Synchronize any device running Ranch Manager through the Cloud. Unlike most Cloud services, the RM Cloud works at the record level, which means conflicts are minimized. With this service one user can modify an animal's tag value, another modify the same animal's birth date and the data is merged without conflict when synchronized.
The world has become increasingly mobile and Ranchers are taking advantage of this mobility to make their lives easier. Take your data with you, rather than rely on an Internet connection to access your data while you are on the go. Use the Ranch Manager Cloud to synchronize your data with any device running Ranch Manager. Whether it is your mobile phone, a laptop computer, or a tablet, we are developing solutions that work for you. Participating devices can be Apple iPhone, and iPad Devices; computers and tablets running the full version of Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X computers.
Your data is encoded and securely transmitted to the cloud, and can be retrieved by the remote device at any time a connection to the Internet is available. Make changes on the go from multiple devices simultaneously and synchronize them back to your master database for consolidation. You do not need to be connected to the network to enter and view data once synchronization has completed from the RM Cloud.
This service is ideal for those that use multiple devices, or have multiple people that need to be able to enter or view data as part of the ranching operation.
The Ranch Manager Cloud requires a single computer to be designated as the 'Master' device. This computer will hold the master copy of your Ranch Manager data and will be used to reconcile any conflicts that arise during synchronization.
The RM Cloud requires a yearly subscription service that costs $39.99/year for each Child device you register. You do not purchase an RM Cloud license for your Master computer; so only 'additional' devices require the $39.99/year.
To participate in the RM Cloud, start on your Master computer and Register for the RM Cloud as the Master:
- Start Ranch Manager on the computer you will designate as your Master.
- From the RM Cloud menu select Register this Computer with the RM Cloud.
- Click Next.

- That's it! At the confirmation page click Finish.
Now that you have registered for the RM Cloud, you can manage or purchase licenses. Here's how:
- Start Ranch Manager on your Master computer.
- From the RM Cloud menu select Manager your RM Cloud Licenses.
- You will be taken to a web page where you can add licenses or renew existing licenses.
Note: You must be connected to the Internet on your Master computer to complete the steps above.
Finally, if know your RM Cloud License Number (you can get the value from your 'About' window on the Master computer), you can enter it below to manage your subscriptions from here.
