Supply chain transparency
AGRI-Food software developer KisanHub has launched reporting and analytics dashboards to provide food producers with access to supply chain data giving an overview of crop progress, weather reports, satellite imagery, stock levels, contracts and more.
The dashboards are aimed at enabling commercial Managers, supply chain analysts and procurement teams to make better purchasing decisions, work collaboratively with growers and suppliers and plan distribution with greater accuracy. Disparate data sets from growers and customers are summarised in one place to provide actionable insights to improve margins, reduce waste and streamline operations.
The dashboards also provide useful summaries of contracts and supply key performance indicators side by side so it is clear to all stakeholders how a season is progressing and where there may be shortfalls or surplus. Raw data can also be downloaded for analysis and reports can be easily shared with customers to provide a clearer picture of contract progress or to explain any deviation in quality, yield, or delivery date.
CEO Giles Barker said: “There’s currently a huge information blind spot between planting and when the crop finally turns up at the packhouse. It creates risk and uncertainty for producer groups who already operate at low margins while trying to meet the exacting demands of the supermarket chains. With so much at stake, we’re bringing together our expertise in software and agriculture to make the fresh produce supply chain more predictable.”
