Whether you work in the Farm Credit System or for a conventional bank with an Ag focus, Zennify has the Ag-focused team to help you take care of the farmers feeding America.
As Mark Twain once said, they aren’t making any more land. Agricultural banks know firsthand the challenges that America’s farmers and ranchers face every day. To feed our country and maintain stability in hard times, this unique set of customers—on their finite pieces of land—need customized, personalized solutions, services and support.
Ag banking is a highly specialized industry that is founded on strong personal relationships. Whether your institution is in the Farm Credit System or is a conventional bank with an agricultural focus, it’s critical to work with a technology team that understands the specific goals and challenges of the ag banking industry.
Zennify is Salesforce’s fastest-growing financial services partner in the United States, and the only one with a dedicated ag banking practice. Our ag-focused team of specialists has a deep understanding of the nuances of the sector and is matchlessly equipped to help your institution support the farmers and ranchers who serve America.

Salesforce: A powerful platform for Ag Banking
Zennify’s approach leverages leading CRM technology based on Salesforce Financial Services Cloud, paired with best-in-class financial services applications, and backed by years of experience and broad industry knowledge. Our transformative solutions have helped numerous ag banks and credit associations build on the power of the Salesforce foundation to deliver better experiences, tools, and services for customers and employees alike.
Zennify integrates Financial Services Cloud with other core technology systems, creating a single pane of glass that enables ag banking institutions to:

- Enable representatives to keep track of customer conversations and touchpoints directly from their phone, even when they’re on site with customers
- Empower executive teams and relationship managers to easily view and manage pipeline, never missing a critical moment to connect and build trust with ag customers
- Identify opportunities by territory, manage lead referrals and seamlessly assign prospects to loan officers through quick, intuitive dashboards
- Utilize business insights and automated, self-informed processes to create farmer and rancher journeys, deliver the right marketing and educational messages to the right customers at the right time—and ultimately grow relationship value
