Our products for data collection and traceability include GPS mapping, GIS technology, mobile applications and barcoding systems. Our bespoke software processes and packages data so it can be stored in a secure database. The database can be accessed via an online platform, while data collection and traceability tools work offline, allowing them to be used in remote locations. Our online platform allows users to visualise, search, and report on the database as well as share specific data, securely, with other members of the organisation or other industry stakeholder.
survey design tools
Our survey design tool allows users to build a questionnaire from an inventory of pre-tested questions and answers and include additional responses of their own. Once complete, we can prepare the technologies used to collect, process, host and visualise this data in only 30 minutes.
Because every supply chain is unique, our traceability tools are tailored to each individual project. We have tried and tested traceability solutions that use barcode and scanning methodologies to trace products along complex supply chains.
FARM BUSINESS PLAN BUILDER
The GeoTraceability digital agronomist is a desktop application that processes field data and agronomic practices to generate appropriate recommendations for Individual Farm Business Plans (FBP). Digitising this agronomic feedback loop allows organisations to create thousands of tailored FBPs, at the click of a button.
MOBILE DATA collection apps
Our easy-to-use mobile data collection applications can be used to gather field information on or offline, such as socio-economic data, field characteristic, agronomic practices, project activities or producer behavior.
Tailored Web Platform
Our web-based platform will host all project information and provide flexible tools to analyse and visualise your data. Data can be queried in a number of different formats, including a pivot table, heat map, table and chart.
APIS TO PULL AND PUSH DATA BETWEEN DIFFERENT PLATFORMS
Our systems are flexible enough to interoperate with other platforms and data sources. Data collected using other software or devices can be integrated into the over-arching database and analysed using the GeoTraceability online platform.
Our GIS technology allows organisations to geo-locate producer fields and important infrastructures, such as schools, water sources, and health services, while also providing an accurate measure of production areas.
Smallholder SMS SYSTEM
Using the communications platform and service provider, Nexmo, we allow users to send messages to targeted groups of producers via our web platform. Users can tailor their communications with producers to suit their needs and contexts.
