Trouble on the horizon
This cattle company has more than a dozen properties scattered across the continent where over 450,000 cattle are bred and grown. This beginning step of the supply chain is crucial for overall success of the company’s supply chain and eventually for its bottom line. Each property therefore plays a key role in the company’s ability to deliver high quality beef to the market. In order to manage this important business function, the business has invested in people, process and systems.
StockIT was one the key field operations systems used for capturing data related to each individual animal, including biological data (breed, genetics, age, etc.), medical history (pregnancy testing, deaths, medication, etc.) and movements (movements within or outside a property).
In 2017 the software vendor behind StockIT made a decision to sunset and stop supporting the StockIT application from March 2018. This presented our client with a serious risk not only to operational efficiency but to business continuity itself.
