Agricultural Cooperative Programs

Cooperative farming holds the most potential for rural farmers to lift themselves out of poverty through their collective expertise and combined efficiencies. For many farmers, discounts on inputs and increased market access have resulted in unprecedented increases in income.

However, cooperatives become exponentially more complex to manage as they scale. The administrative burden of large memberships creates an artificial limitation to their size. Management applications and mobile tools help cooperatives reduce this management burden, allowing them to dramatically increase memberships without increasing complexity.

Benefits of Mobile Data Collection in
Agricultural Cooperative Programs

Complex calculations and data tracking help cooperatives with data-driven financial planning

Offline capabilities allow the application to be used in even the most rural, underserved communities.

Mobile workflows can virtually consolidate bulk selling and out-grower schemes to move cooperatives higher up the value chain, improving margins.

Multimedia capabilities allow for the distribution of best practices amongst cooperative members for improved and more consistent training.

Case management capabilities allow cooperative administrators to keep track of individual farmer needs and outputs.
