Farmable has been working with fruit and tree crop growers for a little over two years with the goal of building a farm management platform that is easy to use. With over 2,500 growers already using Farmable around the world to digitize their farms and capture their farm activities, we are deeply grateful for enthusiastic growers who offer their valuable product feedback. This reinforces our commitment to building software by growers, for growers.
We have calls every day with Farmable users across Australia, Germany, Spain, UK, and many more, learning things like,
what they like and don’t like about the Farmable App,
how the job tracking system works,
recording harvest records,
importing spreadsheets of historic data or viewing spray records in our newly launched Web Portal.
The birth of new features often comes directly from our users! Being able to have a conversation with a grower about what would improve the functionality of the App for their farming enterprise and then have a return call with a demo of the newly developed feature to make sure it has hit the mark is very rewarding for us.
This month we launched a new feature, called Multi-Location Jobs, based on strong grower feedback. Imagine the challenge of the Farm Manager who has a collection of broken fence posts, irrigation leaks, rabbit holes, dead trees or branches, soil test sites and other tasks on the farm which need to be organized and assigned into a workflow.
Watch how to plan and delegate multi-location jobs
With Multi-location job the farm manager can save multiple locations for a job using GPS coordinates until they have all the points covered, and then delegate it to a team member to complete. The team member will receive the job with a description and see the map of the saved GPS locations to perform each task. As they get to each point and finish the task, they can tick them off as complete. As each task is completed, the point changes colour letting the user know which ones are completed and which ones are pending.
Tap the Create (+) button, and create a job. Select Multi-location job, the nature of the job, add locations, assign the job to a crew member, select the date, and delegate.
