Product updates?

One of my software development advisors told me that a database is never finished. After working with ScoutSMART since 2009 I whole heartedly agree!! I am always thinking of ways to make ScoutSMART handier and thinking of new tasks that I would like to have ScoutSMART perform for me. We would also like your ideas so that we may incorporate them into the software package you are using. You can contact me at any time at: mkottmeyer@gmail.com

Are soil sample results integrated into ScoutSMART?

No, but we really enjoy using our companion database, SampleSMART, in conjunction with ScoutSMART as we write fertilizer recommendations. SampleSMART is the best place to store, find, sort, and analyze all your testing data including soil, tissue, manure, slurry, disease, and nematode tests. Test data can be imported to SampleSMART via multiple file formats – eliminating the need to manually enter data into your SampleSMART database
