Project Goal

The AIMS project - Agricultural Information Management System - is envisioned to support decision-making in the context of 50 000 ha of tropical plantations management (oil palm & rubber). It aims to provide daily visual information in term of organization, agronomic characteristics, tree census, production, budgets, KPIs, workforce, nutrition, costs, phyto-surveillance, traceability, heavy-duty and ESG efforts. By integrating data from different sources (ERP, mobile, drone) into analytical processes, the project will translate in better performance assessment and overall optimization of our operations, resulting in cost and time saving. Being embedded in our company intranet, it also ensures easy access to spatial information to all managers

Business Problem Solved

Automation : Reports were done manually, causing delays and errors.
Collaboration : GIS technicians struggled to work and share analyses from different countries.
Visualization : Reports were not displayed on dynamic maps and charts.
Data integrity : Lack of data visualization provoked lack of data quality control.
Accessibility : ERP was not user-friendly and was not centralized in the cloud.
Harmonization & integration : Multiple data silos and standards were co-existing.
Analytics : Reports were focusing on financial aspects only.
