Background

We needed a software tool that fitted in our technological ecosystem and had the capacity to evolve and adapt at the same pace the company does as well, with a great cost/benefit both in terms of economical and organizational effort. Furthermore, this tool had to cover other key necessities:

  • Mechanisms that facilitate robust and efficient integration with the rest of our technologies, including:
    • Payroll software
    • Presence Control by fingerprint checking
    • Presence Control by face checking
    • RFID traceability
    • Automated weighers and label printers
    • Business Intelligence tools
    • etc.
  • A way to improve our commercial process
  • The need for a fast and precise settlement for members, as Grufesa is a farming cooperative
  • A tool that is adapted to the specific farming area, both at the process and legal level

Scope

After a thorough evaluation of the best available tools in the market, we finally adopted 4agro, based in Tryton ERP and provided by Datalife. 4Agro combines the adaptability and comprehensive feature list that our company needed.

Datalife has the know-how in the agricultural sector and are the best suited to deploy and maintain Tryton in our company.

Which functions or modules are particularly important to your company?

Integration with RFID traceability system, the fully adapted sales pipeline, automatic new pallets registration at the end of our production lines and a very accurate farmer payments system (due to our complex market model), among other improvements.

How satisfied are you with Tryton? Would you recommend Tryton?

We are very pleased with the outcome of the project and the continuous upgrades. The system fully covers our processes in an intuitive and easy to use way.

What are your plans with Tryton in the next years?

Currently we are considering adding CRM capabilities and integrating even more with our data warehouse.
