AgriFood Tech business Muddy Boots has already acknowledged the huge benefits that technology can bring when enabling its customers to pass data up and down the supply chain from farm to retailer to view, manage and report on the quality, trace-ability and compliance of their products, sites and suppliers. Its cloud-based SaaS solutions have captured over 19 million checks for customers in quality control on products and/or facilities and it expects this to exponentially increase as the company grows. The use of professional agriculture mobile applications is growing fast – but this growth relies upon a consolidated cross-platform mobile strategy and this is where Godel’s software development skills have been retained to help Muddy Boots deliver.
Built on Microsoft’s Xamarin technology Godel is helping the company engineer a single mobile solution for Android, iOS and Windows, allowing Muddy Boots to retire legacy applications and scale its business across new markets and developing geographies. The business is growing rapidly across international markets and our developers are providing a dedicated resource to deliver its strategy across all three mobile platforms. The consolidation also means that it’s much easier to support the technology too, simplifying things enormously.
Like many of our clients, Muddy Boots requires the development skills to maintain ‘business as usual’ whilst having experienced senior software developers to ramp up projects which help rapidly scale a digital business and deliver a world-class user experience for its customers. The gains are tremendous in terms of intelligent management of food from farm to fork, as well as the opening up of new developing markets for the company.
However, more widely as digitisation of the sector takes hold, some of the enormous challenges the sector faces are possible to solve with faster more efficient technology, data and decision making at our fingertips.
