This is our stable.
This is the stable worker Stan.
Whenever Stan does anything in the stable,
he writes it down on a piece of paper.
In the office, we meet Becky, our back office
Once in a while she receives the papers from Stan and his colleagues from the stables.
She types the data from the papers into the computer.
Sometimes the data from Stan is unclear or incorrect.
Did Stan mean 3192 or 3742?
Becky is not happy, when she receives incorrect data.
But Becky eventually manages to get the correct data.
Every week Becky
prepares a nice report that she sends...
...to Florin the farm manager.
Florin is busy. He verifies the information and makes the needed decisions.
Florin reports to Holger, the production manager of the whole holding.
Holger oversees multiple farms. He receives data from all of them.
He consolidates the data, compares the farms, informs the board...
Holger enjoys spending hours drinking coffee and working on preparing the data for the board and the
investors about what has happened on their farms in the last month.
Would you like to see, how the farm changed with Cloudfarms? See the part 2 of this story.
Welcome back to our stable.
Here we meet the stable worker Stan again.
Stan uses the Smart Mobile application to capture data
The application is really simple and easy to use.
the time, the place, the worker
and all needed information about the entered activity.
To avoid typing errors, Stan uses QR codes to enter the
sow number and the location.
Still, mistakes can happen. When the application suspects an error,
it warns Stan.
The application works also without an Internet connection.
When it finds one, it send the data to the server every five minutes.
Immediately after the phone sends the data, everybody
can see and work with them. Becky, Florin, Holger - all can immediately see what happens on their farm.
Even Francesca, the farm manager on a farm in
other country in our company can see what happened, because Florin granted her access.
Limited access has also been granted to external
experts. So that the the breeding expert Brad and the vet Vera can provide their services more efficiently.
What does it mean for the people?
Stay tuned for more stories from our demo farm.
