Comprehensive farming management
FarmSoft Farm Management software delivers comprehensive farm management for every aspect of the fresh produce farming enterprise. From pre-planting management to post harvest yield analysis.
Farm Record Keeping
FarmSoft makes farm record keeping easy, from your smart phone, tablet, PC or Mac. For teams without devices, you can even print out the farm tasks as a work order, and the data can be captured post task completion. FarmSoft caters for ALL farming tasks, including Spray, Irrigation, Fertilization, Land Preparation, Chipping/Weeding, Bagging, and more. You can even create your own task types, add your own fields, and specify what properties and data must be captured during the task recording process. You can attach photos and documents to tasks. For example: Bob saw some type of pest infestation on a crop, he can take a photo and attach it to a task (and make any notes as required) that he assigns to his manager. His manager will then see the task, view the photo, and possibly create a Spray Task to resolve the issue. (simply take a photo with your phone). Tasks can be monitored in real time by management. You can set who can see which task types, and even set individual read, edit, delete, create permissions for each employee.
Best Farming Practices
FarmSoft’s best farming practice module can automatically create tasks in your Farm Diary. The tasks will have suggested inventory, labor, and equipment use associated to them as Estimated values. Farm managers will then adjust tasks to suit changing weather and conditions, and when the tasks are completed, employees fill in the actual inventory, labor, and equipment used. This system ensures that the correct tasks are being performed at the correct time. Resulting in higher yield, better profit, and accurate traceability.
FarmSoft manages all farm inventory. You can optionally generate inventory labels for all inventory coming onto the farm, and capture the supplier, cost, and traceability details at this stage (saves employees having to write down batch and lot numbers in the field). When the inventory is consumed you can simply refer to its Inventory Number or scan the inventory bar code to record consumption. Perform stock takes from your smartphone or tablet, or simply print them out for entry onto your PC/Mac. Manage expiring inventory by being alerted to expiry dates in advance. Create purchase orders (optionally associate deliveries with PO’s) and optionally use the purchase order approval system. Track inventory consumption, the person/s who used it, and movement dates to determine exactly when and where shrinkage has occurred.
Exceptional traceability allows you to rapidly track all inputs (inventory, employee labor, equipment use) on any specific crop, block, patch, row, bay, section, or tree. Perform recalls on a planting, batch, section of a crop, or specific area of land. Rapidly determine where an Inventory was used, on which batches and perform a recall based on only ONE of the following elements (you only need one element, although more than one can also be helpful): inventory number, crop name, land location and or co-ordinates, bay, row, tree, name of inventory, suppliers name, batch/log number from manufacturer, purchase order that purchased the inventory, employee who used the inventory, invoice number. FarmSoft delivers levels of traceability that are simply unavailable in other solutions.
At any time, report on the cost of each crop or crops season, costs for individual plantings, costs divided by farm area of land, costs by task type by area of land and many other innovative charts and KPI and bench marking tools. All in real time.
Farm budgets can be automatically created simply by using the Best Farming Practice module. Monitor budgets Estimated and Actual values in real time, for the whole farm, site, or specific plantings. Use budget data to plan cash flow, inventory ordering, labor and equipment planning.
