Anyone using a "Farm Management Software" such as 'Granular' or "AGworld" Thoughts? Worth it?

Looking into some farm management software such as Granular or Agworld. Really like the Granular set up and the ability it has in finances, planning, tracking etc but not sure its worth the price. Was wondering what kinda systems people are using and what you suggest? 6000 conventional tillage acres of small grain, cow calf operation, grass hay.

    Anyone using a "Farm Management Software" such as 'Granular' or "AGworld" Thoughts? Worth it?
