IN the heartland of Australia, where vast stretches of land help feed the nation, agriculture is King.
For time-poor Aussie producers, every decision matters, every crop counts, every animal is valued and every dollar is hard-earned.
RCS has provided producers with cutting-edge tools and insights for agricultural economic analysis since 1993.
Two decades ago, RCS introduced ProfitProbe, a groundbreaking tool that has since become a cornerstone of economic data collection and analysis for agricultural enterprises across Australia.

Data Security and Accuracy: Your Assurance with FarmEye
We understand that your data is not just numbers; it’s the lifeblood of your agricultural business. That’s why we’ve taken every precaution to ensure its security and accuracy.
With FarmEye, your financial and production data is uploaded to a secure, independent third-party server. Access is only available to staff with adequate security clearance and only for generating reports. You can rest assured that your data is safe and confidential.
The Importance of Accurate Data Entry
In the world of ProfitProbe, the rule of ‘you get out what you put in’ is paramount. Accurate data entry is not just important; it’s the key to unlocking the full potential of FarmEye. The more effort you put into ensuring the input data is correct, the more meaningful your analytics report will be. This accuracy allows you to confidently make strategic decisions based on your ProfitProbe results.
The Power of Benchmarking
Benchmarking is a process that allows us to assess your productivity, profitability, and efficiency in running an agricultural business. RCS ProfitProbe is unique in that it benchmarks your business with other production businesses and against your specific land type. While the benchmarking components within FarmEye are still in development, we encourage you to contact us if you’re interested and would like to be kept updated on this exciting feature.
Don’t Have All the Data? We Can Help!
If you find yourself without all the data needed for ProfitProbe, fear not. In most cases, we can work with you to extract the necessary information from your current records or bookkeeping programs. Basic records and statements like your stockbook, kill sheets, branding numbers, profit and loss, and balance sheet will contain most of the information needed to complete the ProfitProbe input.
In management accounting, we focus on what occurred during the financial year rather than just the cash movements in and out of the business. This approach gives a more meaningful overview of how well your business works for you and your overall position. It’s a crucial distinction that sets management accounting apart from taxation accounting.
To delve deeper into the concept of management accounting, we recommend attending a Business Fundamentals Workshop or Farming & Grazing for Profit program. These educational opportunities can provide valuable insights into optimizing your agricultural business with FarmEye.
In conclusion, FarmEye is not just a tool; it’s a game-changer for Australian farmers. It empowers you to make informed decisions, optimise your operations, and secure the future of your agricultural business. Powered by ProfitProbe, you’ll have a complete understanding of your business’s financial and ecological health.
