CRS Software Ltd has been developing farm management software for farmers since 1981. It has thirty staff, based in Masterton, comprising a development team, support staff and sales.
Its flagship product is Cashmanager RURAL - Financial software that helps farmers plan. It is much more than just GST or accounting software and is used enthusiastically by thousands of farmers and rural professionals because of its unique ability to help with farm management.
