These days, one of the biggest costs for growers is associated with labour. It can be extremely difficult to accurately monitor workers and capture critical information when they are out in the field. Tie Up Farming has developed a full labour management module into its end-to-end software solution for Agribusinesses to take advantage of.
Roei Yaakobi, CEO of Tie Up Farming, explains that while there are other options on the market for recording labor, none of them are integrated into such a comprehensive system.
“Our system can be used in the field by supervisors and is as easy as texting. We believe it is the first software for the horticultural industry that is capable of capturing all costs on the farm using one data entry point”.
This addition to the software has been a couple of years in the making, and the initial feedback from both the user experience and user interaction are very positive.
“The horticulture industry is very labour intensive, and it is therefore difficult to keep track of labour in the field. Our system can now track labour on the farm during key task events such as harvesting, pruning and thinning as well as in the packhouse while capturing the costs and the efficacy of the workers into one platform. The flexibility that Tie Up Farming software solution offers extends to payrolls and costings, accounting for both hourly and piece rate that can be directly adapted depending on your production system”.
“Now more than ever, especially under the current COVID-19 situation, electronically capturing labor movements, harvest activities and the need for accurate track-and-trace capabilities is an indispensable tool for growers to take advantage of.”
The system can be accessed by various users ranging from, farm managers, supervisors and agronomists according to their level of permission. The new labour management module is an add on to an already elaborate platform that offers full Chemical and Fertiliser management module and Packing Shed management module. Tie Up Farming’s ability to fully capture both labour and chemical costs while presenting the information in a manner that can be easily analysed puts it on a league of its own as many software lacks in the ability to provide an all-in-one cost capturing solution.
Tie Up Farming provides an end-to-end software solution for horticultural agribusinesses. Using a full suite of modules, the cloud-based farm management software can be tailored to help agribusinesses plan, manage, forecast and budget their farm’s operation from planting to packing. The Smart Dashboard allows companies to visually map, track and manage day-to-day production activities, offering a complete overview over all farm operations.
