Following the COVID-19 pandemic, cloud technology was deemed one of the top 3 technologies to invest in. While 44% of SMEs use cloud computing, most of them have not adopted cloud software as a service (SaaS) to drive software process improvements. Using a central platform like Quarto by LintraMax however, interconnected technologies can potentially increase yields by 7-9% and add on $500 billion to global agriculture value by 2030.
How can integrating Quarto’s cloud technology benefit the oil palm industry?
Cost-effective deployment, operations and maintenance
Quarto’s cloud-based infrastructure frees businesses from specialised infrastructure and hardware, such as servers, dedicated workstations and wired networks. By extension, it also eliminates the necessary setup and maintenance costs.
Reduce losses from theft
By using the Quarto Connect app for field data recording, crop harvest and evacuation details from estates can be compared with mill data to identify and curb theft which can account for up to 5% in estate revenue losses.
High performance tasks on any smart device
Without a central integrated plantation management solution like Quarto, estate management requires multiple separate software on dedicated workstations. With Quarto, however, users can perform tasks on any laptop or tablet from their web browser, no installation required. These include accounts closing, worker checkroll processing, inventory management, production monitoring and reports generation.
Future-proofing your business
With legacy silo systems, performance degradation is a common problem as hardware and software become outdated. As the technology powering cloud systems becomes more powerful, users can instead expect improved performance over time. In addition, this results in long-term savings on hardware upgrades.
Enterprise-wise data awareness and interconnectivity
By integrating production data from estates into Quarto, management gain a big picture view of their entire operations in near-real time for more timely problem solving and long-term planning.
Securing peace of mind
With multiple redundancies, Quarto will continue working even in the event of equipment failure. To minimise data loss the system automatically backs up data at regular intervals daily, weekly and beyond. Lastly, Quarto ensures that system users only have access to functions relevant to their duties to prevent records tampering.
