Why Electronic Reporting?

Technology provides a faster more efficient and accurate method of reporting. Both industry and states would benefit from simplification.

  • Implementation of a reporting standard across the industry will improve the process for all involved.
  • With the elimination of the current labor intensive process, states and agricultural businesses will experience significant cost and time savings.


Electronic reporting eliminates several reporting and report creation issues.

  • Multiple formats – 40+ different formats
  • Lack of consistency in data definitions from state to state.
  • High cost to generate reports – manual reporting is time consuming, labor intensive and not sustainable.


Paperless reporting helps or eliminates several report processing issues.

  • Budget constraints or reductions. “Need to do more with less”
  • Lack of consistency in companies reporting
  • Time consuming manual key-entry of data from paper forms
  • Manual processing of large quantities of reports/paper/filing
  • Hiring temporary help to key-enter data adds to cost and is error prone.
