GrowData - Handheld - Harvest App
Planning, scanning, tracking, completing inventory, recording and reporting made EASY. Will store data collected in the field and syncs automatically wherever the internet is in range or through your phone using 4G.
All relevant information is downloaded from GrowData’s database. The app is then ready to go. Properties, Blocks, Employees, Bin Types, are at your fingertips. New pickers can also be entered directly into your phone in the field or if they have an induction card you can simply scan the QR code and their information is stored in the phone then synchronised back the GrowData. The supervisor can pre- set the harvest screen to default to the block, the bin type, the method of payment and the $ rate. All they have to do is scan the bin card and barcode sticker that the picker attaches to the card. The bin card also has a tear-off stub with a matching barcode as a receipt for the picker.
What Will it Capture?
The app is designed to be flexible as everyone’s harvest systems are different. The harvest screen has the following data entry fields: Date & time, Bin card number, Bin type, Rate type (per hour or per bin), $ Rate, Block, Employee, Crew (or team if they are team picking). Bin card numbers can be scanned by your phone or can be entered manually, Pickers can be selected manually or they can stick their barcode onto the bin card. You can also allocate a fruit quality descriptor as well as identifying the row. A percentage slide allows you to enter a part filled bin and the picker is charged accordingly. Pickers can be linked to contractors and they can also work as teams. The app will track by bin and by hour methods of payment.
All reports are live and reflect what has happened to the minute. These include Individual picker tallies, Total bins per block, Total bins per contractor and Total bins per supervisor. All this data is synced back to the GrowData base in the office. If there is no connection in the field the sync will take place when the phone is back in range. GrowData then has a suite of reports including information for uploading into payroll or for contractors. There are two in-field levels of authority: Users who only have access to the data they have recorded and Supervisors who have access to all users data.
Totally Paperless Data Management
No more double handling of data, no more paperwork, no more arguments with pickers. Pickers can be handed a tear off receipt from the bin card which has a copy of the bins barcode. You can create non repeating bin tickets and each picker will have their own barcode, which is stored in GrowData.
Once you establish a process which works best with your harvest system you will be delighted at the time saved and the hassles avoided. The system is very intuitive and you will see from the testimonials that the field staff find the process very easy to adapt to. ‘Simple Input – Smart Management’
There are no expensive programmable scanners required. You can simply use iPhones, iPads or even simple iPods. Because the mobile app is linked to your GrowData Database, all the necessary data required to record harvest details in the field is downloaded into the app.
