This company also produces mango pulp and Individually Quick Frozen products. These products are sold through company owned retail outlets and exports.

Challenge

  • Maintaining quality of fresh fruits was a major problem.
  • Complex activities like bagging fruit and harvesting them after specific period requires higher number of man days.
  • Physical inspection of fruits was a tedious task and there was no means to simplify this task.
  • Multiple locations make the plantation management difficult.
  • Planning and execution of activities used to attract maximum man hours.
  • Estimation of fruits yield was un traceable.
  • Tree wise observations and harvest recording was not possible.
  • Human resources and payroll functions of employees and labours were time consuming.
  • Company owned retail outlets were working on offline software, hence fruit inventory reconciliation was difficult to have.

Approach

FarmERP Experts spent substantial time studying and analysing pain area of the client. our Team devised solution to streamline complex process of bagging of fruit and harvesting it . We suggested to paste the bags with labels having week numbers printed on it. This reduced efforts of harvesting team as they can only open those bag's which are falling in the current week. Another advantage is they actual number of fruits to be harvested were recorded on the platform. This was achieved using an Android tablet to capture this data in offline mode.

Our team designed a hybrid Point Of Sale solution, which could work both in offline and online mode to keep the product inventory up to date.
