How CropTrak Helps You During These Changing Times

How CropTrak Helps You During These Changing Times

No one can argue that we live in changing times. Technology moves at a frantic pace, and many of us struggle to keep up with the advancements and new knowledge that develops faster than we can assimilate it.

The Ag world is not immune to this – knowledge drives change in our industry. Some of the practices that were acceptable and codified into law 40 or more years ago are now known to be dangerous to consumers, the land we use to grow food, and indeed the farmers growing the food. So how DO you protect yourself against practices that were once considered state-of-the-art?

The answer is to document everything! In our litigious society, you MUST be able to show “good faith practices” that are in compliance with all regulatory requirements at the time of use. And CropTrak’s suite of products makes that easy to do. We help you efficiently collect data in the field, track chemical use, safety training, work orders, equipment maintenance and much more.

Contact our team to find out how we can help you limit your liability in a changing world!

Do You Need a Personal Assistant?

Do You Need a Personal Assistant?

We all wish we could have a personal assistant (P.A.) to make our daily work lives easier. The good news is CropTrak can give you a virtual P.A. by leveraging a whole suite of tools that allow you to easily automate tasks including alerts, reports, broadcasts and more.

Here’s a quick list of some of the top tools in CropTrak that will make your job easier today:

Mobile Feature InfoViews (FIVs) – these in-app mini-reports are a very powerful way to monitor and compare recent data without having to go to an external reporting solution. More info on our support portal.

Mobile FarmEngine – lets you automatically identify which fields need to have things done, drop a pin on the map and color-code those fields – even send yourself an email reminder or text message when things are overdue. FarmEngine is a decision support platform designed to help users make repeatable and timely decisions. Just set up the rules (no programming required) and let CropTrak do the work.  More info on our support portal.

Action Items & Work Orders – forget having to send a memo and remembering to follow up on that memo. In-app Action Items & Work Orders function as direct “heads-up” indicators that allow you to assign “completable job” tasks with deliverable deadlines. More info on our support portal.

Web Dashboards – the main feature of our newly released CropTrak Web, dashboards give you an immediate view of the health of every facet of your organization. These can be viewed on a form, map or image basis. More info on our support portal.

Web Broadcasts – never again will you have to manually send reports to a list of recipients by hand. CropTrak Web allows you to set up automated broadcasts to any number of distribution lists. More info on our support portal.

Mobile Worklists – See a grid table view of work, status, and values to speed you thru a days work and make sure you never miss a task again. Part of the Spring 2019 release.
