We know that last year has been very challenging and this has required us to be creative and innovative in order to remain competitive.
It has also forced us to be more moderate with the resources we have and to have more accurate data in order to optimize resources.
As we know, in 2020, a large percentage of companies, whose activity is purely physical, found it difficult to adapt and had to close or make cuts in their talent or productivity to stay afloat. Others were able to adapt to the new reality in a short period of time.
But what was the advantage of the rest of the companies that prospered?
The answer: having real-time data on all processes in the production chain.
This allowed them to make last-minute changes since they had information and figures at hand to back up these decisions.
An example of this is the Agricultural Optimization Pilot program that is being carried out jointly with the coffee producer Gomez Mora, TOSHIBA brand and ECPUNCH platform.
This innovation, which unites the coffee tradition, the experience in electronic devices with the latest in 4.0 technology, allows to remotely control human resources and to have control of the inputs used and the production rates.
Combining physical devices with the ECPUNCH platform has allowed for a 46.40% reduction in the time required to assign tasks to employees in an automated way in comparison to before when activities were distributed on an individual basis. With this tool you can access all the production data of your business, no matter where you are located. The data is protected in the cloud on AWS servers (Amazon Web Services), which allows access only to those concerned, even if they are in another country other than the agricultural production center.
Imagine the advantage of being able to negotiate production on the same harvest day! In addition, it makes it possible to make decisions more quickly, optimizing management to maintain competitiveness and improve quality.
In addition to being able to control the human resources you can have real time data such as:
*The amount of coffee harvested
*The amount of fallen beans
*The amount of coffee ripened on the tree
*And the amount of trees per lot
We know that your business also requires measuring each phase of your production process, from the cultivation, through the control of the activities of those involved, to the control of the inputs.
We also know that you are located far away from the production centers, even in another country, and you need to have accurate and updated information.
The good news is that the task of collecting data does not have to be done by you.
Having to delegate to someone else the manual collection of information requires a lot of time that this person could spend optimizing other processes.
So there is a way for plant managers, too, to save time in unnecessary areas and optimize their management.
We can help you collect and assemble the information so that you have it on your desktop, or on your phone in the palm of your hand.
That’s what the ECPUNCH Agribusiness Optimization Platform is for.
