Cropolis Overview

What is Cropolis?

Cropolis is an online food sales management tool for small to medium sized local food-producing farms from all backgrounds by streamlining food marketing and sales. Farmers are able to send order forms and process incoming orders across multiple customer types such as grocery stores, restaurants, wholesalers, schools and farmer’s markets. The client portal allows customers to place direct orders from dynamic product lists, find new products and get seasonal updates, as well as track their orders and deliveries.

Cropolis offers a comprehensive set of backend tools which help simplify the processes of direct meat and produce sales, enabling users to create and send interactive order forms, track food sales, and get detailed reports. Farms are able to provide their customers with an order interface which securely accepts credit and debit card payments, and deliver up-to-date and interactive product lists. Farmers are able to view and edit the orders placed by clients, and automatically generate pick lists and pack lists with a single click. Automated reporting features enable users to make data-driven decisions, keep track of pricing and the farm’s progress, as well as explore trends. Inventory tracking tools allow farmers to optimize sales strategies by tracking the best selling items, updating orders when inventory changes, as well as look back at past sales to plan future crops. An email builder tool enables farmers to create and send professional, templated emails to customers to market products and seasonal food availability.

Through the Cropolis online tool for customers, businesses such as restaurants, grocery stores, and schools can stay up-to-date on what products are available, find new products, track orders and their delivery in a single place. Clients are able to consolidate communication on order changes and disputes to save time and minimize day-to-day calls and emails, track where their food is coming from, and discover seasonal food offers.

Cropolis is a Game Changer

I got a lot of great produce this summer from local farmers through Cropolis. I’m excited to get more this summer!!!

Great tool for moving products

We were trying to use both Shopify and Mailchimp before Cropolis, and between the costs, limitations and the all their bells and whistles (fancy interface and tutorials)... Cropolis by far simplified our lives and enabled us to make weekly communications without having to navigate through a complicated maze of features that we didn't use.

All around great product

Croplis has been a life saver. As a restaurant owner I try to order as much local food as possible. It’s really saved time in having to contact a bunch of different farms and have they have available.

Cropolis Makes Making Money Easier

Lettuce Heads Farm has had a great experience with Cropolis, any time there is an issue or question it is answered in minutes not hours or days. If a suggested change is made by myself it comes to fruition quickly. We have used the program for one year and seen sale increase by leaps and bounds. It make sour job of selling easier and our product more accessible to the masses.

Pros

How quick and easy the order forms are, it supports local farmers, helps me get quality produce. It also makes the farmer so much easier to work with - Farmers that use Cropolis don’t miss any emails or texts.

Cons

I wish more farmers used it, so I’d have a bigger variety of farms and produce to choose from

Cropolis by far simplified our lives and enabled us to make weekly communications without having to navigate through a complicated maze of features that we didn't use.

Pros

Simplicity. Takes 15 minutes to send my current inventory to entire customer list (or only a select group), and everything is customizable on the fly.... What to list and what to exclude.

Cons

There were some early compatibility issues with my phone (a weird one) but the team at Cropolis responded and had me up and running within 24hrs.

Pros

I love the user interface and how it is to navigate from page to page and achieve what I want to achieve!

Cons

That’s a tough question, I really just wish it wasn’t as seasonal. But that’s more of a farm problem than software problem haha

Response from Cropolis

Thank you Jordan! We love your mission with www.Revivalchili.com and are glad that farmers using our software make it easier to purchase your food so you can keep cooking!
