Ken Wedig, who was retired from John Deere after 30 years, partnered with Everett Chambers in 2003 to create AgCompass, one of the pioneers in the technology which supports businesses by hosting their software on a remote server so they can access their data from multiple locations. AgCompass can host nearly any windows-based software and specializes in hosting accounting software such as FBS Systems, Red Wing and Quickbook, as well as mill software from Vertical, trucking software such as ProMiles and more.
“A farmer may have a farm in Wisconsin, another one in Illinois, another one in Iowa, with people distributed throughout, and once they are on the server they can all access the same set of data and keep it updated and simultaneously maintained,” explains Wedig, who holds a degree in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin and lives in Iowa.
