Feed management system
Feed Management System
Our client desired to get brand new, innovative solution for for dairy farm management based on integration with different hardware – weight controllers, temperature sensors, etc. The main purpose for the development: collect, process, manage and analyse all flows on farm or feed center using best web, mobile and hardware (IoT) solutions. Value for business – increase profit and decrease costs.
There were 5 main stages of cooperation: development of detailed Software requirements specification (SRS) – 1 month; MVP development and integration on partners farm – 4 months; feedback gathering and support of MVP – 3 months; core development – 6-8 months; features development – still in progress (November 2020).
The reasons to develop new Feed Management System
Unable to develop or(and) support current version;
No development team for "old school" stack;
Mobile app, backend and backoffice didn’t work properly;
Bunch of new features that need to be added;
No ability to integrate with new hardware using wireless connection.
There were no analytics, reporting and notifications
