"We had been using the same DOS breeding herd software for 20+ years and with over 40,000 sows making a software change was a daunting task. Initially we looked at every available breeding herd software for its ability to convert our current database, ease of data entry, routine reporting, data mining, customability and cost per sow. We also do numerous on farm research trials for ourselves, staff veterinarian, consulting veterinarians, nutritionist and genetic company, so we needed software that we could record information & know that it could be easily retrieved at a later date. We narrowed our choices & for 18 months we did extensive evaluating of each software that had the potential to fit our needs.
In the end Porcitec was the only software that could completely convert our current databases without data loss, allow us to customize data entry and reports for each farm, follows NPB standards & also gave us a substantial cost savings per sow. At first we were concerned about trying software with a company that was not USA based, but after trying the free demo we were impressed at the quality of the program. Even during our evaluation of the Porcitec software they responded to the requests & suggestions we made. This was very important to us & something we had never gotten from our current software vendor.
Porcitec’s technical & customer support is tremendous. Questions are resolved promptly, suggestions are responded to quickly and software upgrades are effective."

"In this industry its all about controlling costs in order to compete. We looked at every software solution imaginable for on-farm data collection, sow record keeping, analysis, and reporting. We conducted a thorough evaluation and extensive testing of each. Porcitec was the only software that could handle 75,000 sows cost effectively, yet give us a truly powerful database with customized reporting capability. Even during the evaluation process Agritec provided real solutions to meet our needs instead of promising but never delivering like the big names out there. Porcitec is very intuitive, user friendly, and inexpensive, but very powerful. The total cost of ownership with Agritec was far superior to anything else. We realized a huge savings. Porcitec gave us competitive advantage in the industry and over our sister companies.
Agritec provides unparalleled support. Trouble reports were resolved in a very timely manner; software change requests were implemented promptly; and suggestions were welcomed enthusiastically. If you want to make better informed decisions, reduce your costs, and increase production you should be using Porcitec."

"I have been using Porcitec since 8/31/2002. At first I was apprehensive about doing business with a company overseas but was intrigued enough by the free demo version to try it. Since I purchased Porcitec I have been pleased with the quality of the program. The most impressive aspect though has been the technical/customer support. Agritec Software has been very prompt and polite in providing solutions to questions or problems. They have been very receptive to any suggestions and ideas which may help improve their product, even developing and incorporating several reports which I specifically requested.
I am very satisfied with my choice to use Porcitec as my swine production record keeping program."
"It is now 3/10/07. I was impressed with Agritec then and that perception has not changed in almost 4.5 years, it has been reinforced. Agritec is a high quality, high integrity company. I wish everyone I had to deal with in agriculture had the same integrity and character."

"I started using Porcitec in January 2003, and the more I’m using it the more I’m finding out what I have been missing for 20 years being with hogs. First I’m finding out it gives me a in depth look in my spending and it makes me a better hog manager and also the help I’m getting from the Porcitec people and it makes me very proud to be part of a swine program that's being built on ideas that come from producers and are welcomed by people who listen. I’m finding out if a person wants to raise hogs this is the only program a person is ever going to need, I recommend this awesome and high-tech program to anyone in the swine industry you'll never regret it."

"We were looking for a Windows based swine record keeping software that would be able to meet the North American hog production industry. This included Breeding Herd Management, NGF Management, Financial Management, Health Management, Feed Management and Reports which could be customized to suit individual farm. We were also looking for a software that could be used in a handheld computer for Event Entries while in the barns. We found that Porcitec was our answer. Porcitec has a very user-friendly interface, is easy to use and understand. The data entry is effortless. The database from other swine record keeping software can easily be transferred into Porcitec. The most important part of Porcitec is that the user needs to enter data only ONCE to get production reports, financial reports, drug usage reports and feed reports.
We also needed the software to conform to NPB standards, which Porcitec does. Many veterinarians, who we work with, have indicated that the reports are excellent and that it is easier to make a more accurate assessment regarding production in our barns. Thank-you Agritec Software for creating Porcitec."

"I had been using other software to manage my herd but was not very satisfied with it due to its high annual price. When I downloaded Porcitec Free, I was surprised by its features. Agritec imported all my animals to Porcitec from my old software. I am very pleased with the decision I made to purchase Porcitec."
"I started using Porcitec since 2001. I'm truly satisfied with the prompt and friendly technical support. The program is very user friendly. You can even produce reports written in your own language (in my case Chinese). You do not have to change your farm management practice in order to use Porcitec. The program is shaped according your farm recording needs."
