We at Gylling Data Management (GDM) create, market, and support ARM software for managing and summarizing agriculture research experiments.

  • ARM saves time creating trials, analyzing data, and producing the many reports required for successful and timely trial management.

  • ARM is a recognized and respected standard throughout the crop production and protection industry.

  • ARM is used by thousands of researchers in 75 countries worldwide (more than any other integrated research trial management software).




ARM 2015 is now available!

The "ARM 2015" name identifies this ARM version as prepared for the 2015 field season. ARM 2015 contains all features of ARM 9.2014, plus many new features. (ARM 2015 was previously referred to by its internal "10" version number.)
  • Previous ARM 2015 orders were shipped as ARM 9.2014, and will automatically upgrade now that ARM 2015 is released. Just run Check For Updates from the Help menu in ARM to install the upgrade.
  • If you have not yet upgraded to ARM 2015, please review the information below about new features and benefits of ARM 2015. Upgrading ARM version 9 costs substantially less in 2015 than it will in 2016. Contact your GDM Representative to request a price list.
  • ARM Feature Comparison (pdf) gives an overview of ARM 2015 features compared to previous
    ARM versions.
  • See ARM 2015 FAQ for details on ARM 2015 questions, also support and upgrade changes.
  • See an ARM 2015 Overview (pdf) of new features, as of December 2014.
  • Use the Write to Us page to ask additional questions or request a price list.
  • GDM continues our policy that the most economical time to upgrade is always when a new version is first released.
  • For contract researchers, ARM 2015 fully supports all sponsor customizations and ARM versions, and will provide sponsors with better quality trials than previous ARM versions. Versions dated January 11, 2015 or newer are fully compatible with 2014 SCOUT_CO 2.9 version, see Contract Researchers for details.
  • Remember ARM 8 End-Of-Life was December 31, 2014. Upgrade now to receive support if you are still using ARM 8.
