Business Problem Solved

Field processes improved using Esri's Portal for ArcGIS and Collector for ArcGIS app:
• Enabled Esri's Portal for ArcGIS and deployed 75+ mobile devices with Collector and Explorer for ArcGIS installed
• Water pump logs now recorded through Collector apps and daily emails provided for pump activity provided to leadership. Map overview of irrigation conditions and status.
• Agriculture disease scouting with Collector apps with auto-averaging of infestation level. Map overview of possible exposure and infestation areas.
• Farm equipment downtime reporting on mobile devices with picture capability. Map overview of all “down” equipment across the farm operation.
• Canal, ditch and culvert cleaning/repairing progress is map driven by using Collector to show all progress to populate a map on portal

Technology Implemented
