Apps and Management Software Resources
Rising costs combined with changes to compliance requirements for recording and reporting piece work are some of the drivers for progressive growers' current focus on technology and systems.
There are several products in the market that may assist with monitoring tasks, tracking inputs, and reporting on critical outputs such as yields, quality, and labour productivity.
Many service providers claim improvements in the management of information, reduced administration burden, improved traceability of crop inputs and streamlining of labour management. Fruit Growers Tasmania is working with APAL and other industry bodies to investigate various management software systems and Apps. A full report will be published in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, FGT has compiled a list of some of the options currently available.
