Interveg started working with Farmforce in 2013, with aim to improve their internal processes.
Farmforce at Interveg:
GlobalG.A.P. is the world’s leading farm assurance program. Their compliance standards involve the need to meet a checklist of requirements and provide evidence in the form of documents and photographs. Farmforce has helped to simplify the GlobalG.A.P. processes by recording and storing the data in a digital form. There has been a 50% reduction in time taken to complete the necessary digital checklists, now taking around 4 hours.
Evidence of hygienic procedures, personal protective clothing, harvesting containers used exclusively for harvesting, plant protection products storage and fertilizer storage to name a few need to be recorded. Photographs of examples such as those mentioned above can be taken using a mobile device and stored directly into Farmforce as evidence to meet compliance. There are many farms needing certification, which require a large amount of storage and organisation. Farmforce enables Interveg to store all audit reports in an organised and digital format in a centralized, safe and secure system.
Farmforce has proven to be a valuable investment for Interveg. Thanks to Farmforce, Interveg have a better overall transparency of their operations at a farmer level and have further ensured data integrity, with traceability being tracked via GPS and photographic evidence.
Farmforce provides Interveg with a view of information and allows them to receive alerts in real time, giving them the power to act upon this immediately and therefore further saving themselves from damaged crops or failing compliance and inspections.
GlobalG.A.P. checklists now can be completed in 50% less time, with automated processes now meaning a 60% reduction in packhouse processes. These processes have become electronic, meaning that data is stored safely and securely.
Working with the Farmforce system allows Interveg to work more efficiently, with data now being secure and having an increased degree of accuracy and an improved way of working. Customers are confident and trust in Interveg. The improved working via Farmforce helps to maintain great customer relationships.
