LITTLETON, Colo. — Charter Software’s flagship business management system, ASPEN, was recently certified last month on two additional interfaces with AGCO Corp. The first certification relates to parts ordering integration between AGCO Solutions Online and ASPEN, and the second certification relates to the reporting of Canadian taxes through Charter’s already certified AGCO+ Plus revolving credit integration.

“This comes as no surprise to the Charter sofftware team, as the original design and implementation for integration with parts ordering for AGCO Solutions Online was part of ASPEN during its original design,” said Kendall Edwards, lead business analyst at Charter Software. “Acquiring certification with AGCO Solutions Online for all parts order types didn’t require changing a single stitch of code. This code foundation has been in use for years. After all we’ve been working smoothly with AGCO for eons. From day one, the ASPEN system was designed to integrate seamlessly with the top manufacturers in the world, AGCO being one of them.”

Charter Software customers in Canada also have the benefit of additional certification received for reporting the breakout of Canadian taxes as part of the AGCO Plus+ revolving credit integration. This integration allows the dealership’s customers to see the breakout of taxes on the statement they receive from AGCO.

“Here’s to the continued mutual success of AGCO dealers and Charter Software,” said Anne Salemo, president and chief executive officer of Charter Software.


ASPEN was developed using Microsoft .NET and SQL Server to offer dealers strong security, a reliable, manageable IT infrastructure, and easy integration with Microsoft applications.
