SST Software is an agricultural software
development and information services
provider with 38 employees and
customers in 42 states, eight Canadian
provinces, and 22 countries. Its principal
offering is FarmRite, a Web-based data
management and processing service used
by SST’s customers, who themselves
are service providers to growers. Based
on lab results from soil samples, SST
creates map books that run from 27 to
500 pages for each farm. SST compiles
the map books digitally—each of them
consuming as much as 110 megabytes—
and furnishes prints-out for clients to use
in meetings with growers. The company
uploads the map book files to the site
of a courier service, where they are
printed, bound and shipped overnight.
The information generated by SST, in the
form of data tables, also is shared via the
Internet with SST’s customers.
•	 Hard copies of maps required several
days to print and deliver via courier.
•	 Some geographical areas did not have
overnight courier service available.
•	 Client e-mail systems often accepted
attachments only as large as 5 to 10
megabytes. If a customer requested
a map book in electronic form, SST
would have to send the document in
pieces—two or three pages at a time,
in separate e-mails.
•	 Customers were demanding delivery of
electronic versions of map books that
could be reviewed while waiting for the
printing of hard copies.
YouSendIt Corporate Suite
Deployed to six FarmRite staff members,
YouSendIt Corporate Suite allows
fast, secure and easy uploading and

Web site. Efficiency has improved with
