Agri work isn’t insular, so why should your agri-data platform be?

August 22, 2018

We’ve just updated the ZENSIE dashboard.

The new groups feature makes it easy to share data from various sources (sensors, climate control, traceability) in its various forms (heatmaps, graphs, visualizations, single values) with individuals within and outside your organisation. Group members can follow sensors, and with live commenting, provide feedback on crop performance based on real-time and historical data on crops and environments anywhere in the world, from anywhere in the world.
From staying aware of changes in real-time, to collaborating on the best way to respond, ZENSIE is your one-stop-shop for optimising your agribusiness’ operations. Not only is it your central point for crop analytics, it’s just become your virtual meeting room.

Maximising agri-data’s value, farm to fork

How’s this for making collaboration interdisciplinary, and across the chain: you don’t need to be part of the same organisation to be members of the same group.

We talk about the chain in agriculture, but let’s be honest, it’s more like an intricate web. It’s farm to fork, but with so many stakeholders on the way. Suppliers, growers, advisors, consultants, cold store managers— the combinations of individuals interacting to solve and prevent problems are endless, and often project-specific. Different organisations and members within them play different roles, depending on the objectives (think optimising integrated pest management, reducing crop disease during cultivation or storage, or designing an irrigation strategy that’s more targeted and sustainable.)

With the ability to selectively invite external (and, of course, internal) members to groups, you can stay focused on a specific task, project, metric, location (you name it.) You set permissions and define which sensor data is shared with the group, so collaboration across roles and organisations is on your terms.

Comments: an ongoing conversation

In groups, you know you’re seeing the same data, and can arrange to receive the same alerts based on custom triggers (setting them up is beyond simple.) And with comments, you can discuss that live and historical data, together. Pinpoint and address specific problems, draw conclusions based on experiments, or simply flag issues others may have missed.

Crop data and the discussion around it shouldn’t be fragmented. We’ve brought it together in one interface, to streamline the conversation. Groups and comments eliminate the fragmentation caused by waiting for emails or meetings to address pressing crop matters. In ZENSIE, the conversation is ongoing, data-driven and annotated. Plus, it can include colleagues wherever they are.

Making groups accessible to individuals outside the organisation creates new channels for meaningful collaboration within the agricultural sector— from research and working groups evaluating crop protection methods, to growers’ organisations sharing tips, feedback mechanisms between customers and suppliers to individual growers with similar problems simply exchanging knowledge, groups might just turn into partnerships, innovation and communities.
