"We delivered our first version in nine months—which is unheard of in this industry—because we hired 25 of the best people in the industry and gave them really good tools. Then, we converted 1,900 screens to a new UI in just two weeks. Telerik was a key component in our success.” Carl Gideon, Enterprise Architect at AgWorks

Overview About AgWorks
AgWorks was born in 2010 by a merger between Dreamscape Technologies and iNETj Communications, specializing in the development and support of crop processing systems. Both companies have extensive experience in the crop insurance industry. AgWorks has successfully implemented and managed crop insurance systems used to process more than $1.6 billion in annual premiums, supporting all Federal Crop Insurance Corporation approved crop/product combinations in the U.S.
AgWorks was tasked with building a large-scale centralized web application to meet some very immediate needs of one of its customers. However, most applications tailored for the crop insurance industry take roughly three years to develop. The application has to render intricate screens to account for various crops, specializations, varieties of crop, and state and county policies. Close to 1,000 people use the app, including agents, staff at insurance companies and farmers. Additionally, as crops are planted and mature, the app has to be able to record acres, track the harvest, and record storm data and other information that may affect the crops. It manages premium collection, as well.
AgWorks designed and implemented the application using Microsoft.NET web-based technologies, Telerik® UI for ASP.NET MVC and Telerik® Reporting. The team met the customer’s tight deadline and was able to launch the first version of the application in only nine months.
