Why not Smart Livestock Management?

Smart Farming,” contributing author Federico Guerrini wrote “The agricultural sector is going to face enormous challenges in order to feed the 9.6 billion people that the FAO predicts are going to inhabit the planet by 2050: Food production must increase by 70% by 2050, and this has to be achieved in spite of the limited availability of arable lands, the increasing need for fresh water (agriculture consumes 70 per cent of the world's fresh water supply), and other less predictable factors, such as the impact of climate change, which, according a recent report by the UN could lead, among other things, to changes to seasonal events in the life cycle of plant and animals.”


Guerrini wrote further, “One way to address these issues and increase the quality and quantity of agricultural production is using sensing technology to make farms more "intelligent" and more connected through the so-called "precision agriculture" also known as ‘smart farming’.”

This is the problem Outsource Technical Concepts is addressing with AgVis, their precision livestock monitoring solution. And they are doing so with ViziApps for the mobile app.

Check out a new case study we want you to take a look at. We think you’ll be suitably impressed.

This case study involves a large retailer operating many department stores and a sizable online business, worldwide. They had a problem they wanted to solve. At its many warehouses, the retailer looked to replace a time-consuming and labor-intensive process used to report on and launch corrective action with the correct product supplier for quality and damage issues of incoming goods -– a process that involved three workers, a camera, and a clipboard.

Sounds like old school, doesn’t it?


Delivery Error Corrections appThe retailer's Operations Logistics team used ViziApps to rapidly create a mobile app that replaced the clipboard, camera, and three workers with one worker and a smartphone -- reducing their inspection and reporting times and costs as much as 65%. And, they did it while leveraging their Quick Base® investment.

Sandeep Raut, in his CIO Watercooler article , User Experience Design – a key to Digital Transformation, published 6th September 2018, writes “A UX design can supercharge productivity, add immense value to customer interactions, and help employees love their jobs. He goes on to say “Overall UX design should have short navigation steps so users require very few clicks to get the information they want. It should be based on responsive web designs so applications maintain full functionality, usability and appeal on different browsers and screens from desktop to laptops to tablets to smartphones.”
