“Every single project is important as it helps to establish a new relationship or strengthen an existing one,” says Sarvesh. An example of one such relationship is with a client who is a national, farmer-owned food and agricultural cooperative with sales in excess of $12 billion. The company does business in all 50 states and more than 50 countries. It is a leading marketer of a full line of dairy-based consumer, foodservice and food ingredient products across the United States. It serves its global customers with a variety of food and animal-feed ingredients. It also provides farmers and ranchers with an extensive line of agricultural supplies and services.

The Challenge with the client was using a web tool called the R7 Tool that helped in marking the field area on a map and creating a variety of analytical maps. The different maps gave insights into the quality of the field, the type of soil in the field and others. They also showed the performance of various hybrid products (feed/seeds/crop protection products) across a specific region and on particular kinds of soil. The client needed a native app for iPad so that sellers could Visit the growers’ location, educate them on field conditions, suggest products & their quantities they could use on their fields and have access to information in offline mode. There were a number of challenges relating to user Interface and app performance as it involved large amounts of data.

Tavant’s solution ensured the drawing of the field area on the map became easy, the app was faster more responsive compared to web tool. The new user interface was highly appreciated, and the new graph component added marketing value. The app provided offline support when the connectivity was not available and the caching of the product images made the browsing enjoyable.
