About

History

Oakland Corporation was founded in 1982 by Roger Oakland. Roger had successfully developed and sold grain and fertilizer applications for programmable business equipment from 1976 - 1983. Oakland Corporation was formed in order to expand these applications into the new personal computer industry. By 1986 Oakland Corporation offered a PC based system with up to 16 users connected to a live multi-location Accounting and Grain system. We specialized in providing onsite installation and training for multi-location grain cooperatives. Presently, half of our employees have over 150 cumulative years of experience as merchandisers, controllers, assistant managers, and managers of cooperative grain companies.
 
Our goal is to provide the best customer service available in the industry. Most customer calls are answered when the call comes in, and our average response time to calls left on our customer service voicemail system is about 20 minutes. All calls are returned before our employees leave for the day.

Employees have to enjoy their job in order to provide this kind of service, and that's why Oakland Corporation has a goal concerning our employees. We want to be the best employer that our people have ever had - or would ever want. We take care of our staff, our staff takes care of our customers, and our customers take care of our company. And it works!
