Official Press Release
Game-changing farm management software company Aglive officially launched its forever-free IntegriPro® subscription package for all cattle, sheep and goat producers in Australia today.
This revolutionary software is poised to provide a ‘one-stop-shop’ for managing livestock accreditations and collecting of on-farm data, enhancing production management efficiencies and food traceability.
The Australian, Geelong-based, business is offering its Aglive IntegriPro® software system free to all red meat producers for the Mob Basic package, with the option to up-grade via a paid subscription for more sophisticated features, including individual EID management.
Aglive IntegriPro® digitises on-farm compliance requirements with integrated farm accreditation paperwork capturing livestock and farm data onto one platform, via the cloud, to provide a completely portable, digital resource accessible via a user’s smartphone, tablet or desktop.
The app is a new version of the company’s former farmer software app, with added features for farm management and the completion of electronic National Vendor Declarations (eNVDs) and National Cattle and Sheep Health Declarations.
The launch of this innovative new product will be accompanied by a national awareness advertising campaign being rolled out across digital and social media channels as well as events.
Unlike other farm management software on the market, Aglive IntegriPro® enables producers to complete industry and commercial certifications in one central spot, including unlimited eNVDs and National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) compliance.
Capabilities to complete Meat Standards Australia (MSA), European Union (EU) and National Feedlot Accreditation (NFAS) declarations are expected to be added in future releases.
Certifications are then automatically sent on to the next receiver in the food supply chain, whether that be saleyard, transporter, processor or feedlot, or they can be printed if needed. In December 2016, Aglive was licensed by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) as the first provider of an eNVD for use by producers and processors in Australia.
Aglive Managing Director Paul Ryan says the technology was designed to support product integrity and traceability for the red meat industry while also simplifying the process.
“Producers can now manage industry declarations, see livestock lifecycle treatments, manage paddock movements and more, all wrapped up in one powerful platform, in the field, on a mobile device and via the cloud“.
“The platform allows you to manage your farm by mapping your paddocks, assigning animals, monitoring feed and treatments and integrates RFID wands for full animal traceability. This allows for improved stock inventory management, ownership audit and control. It provides a complete accreditation umbrella, capturing certifications on the one platform and sending them on to where they need to go.” Paul said.
Aglive recognises that producers and the red meat supply chain need to improve efficiencies and boost traceability as it moves from a paper-based system to a digital future.
“We are the pioneers of this technology and Aglive IntegriPro® is the first and only digital software application in Australia to offer a completely paperless, Bluetooth service that integrates seamlessly with national quality assurance programs, to capture your livestock data” Paul said.
