Problem – Operational Overhaul
Capturing standardised research data
Inefficient KYC data collation
The need for field management coordination
A lack of enablement tools for sales and merchandising operations
- Lack of Standardised Data Capture: Seed Co faced challenges in digitally capturing research data on product, seed, and crop performance in a standardised manner.
- Inefficient KYC Data Collation: There was a need for efficient collation of Know Your Customer (KYC) data across the country for prospective and existing growers and farmers.
- Field Management Coordination: Seed Co required a field management solution to coordinate and track field/customer visits by its representatives.
- Enablement Tool for Sales and Merchandising: The sales and merchandising teams lacked an enablement tool for generating orders, tracking stock levels/movement, and managing customer delivery quality.
