Cogent3D, Inc. has been awarded a contract to assist USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service to re-engineer their mobile workforce with a new Mobile Conservation Planner App using iCropTrak to allow NRCS staff to spend more time with client collaboration and conservation efforts in the field.
The Natural Resources Conservations Service is re-engineering their core client facing business processes. The contract is to identify improvements to their current application systems to improve work quality and consistency, reduce program cycle times and improve the effectiveness of the agency by allowing it to “get more conservation on the ground.”
To achieve these goals, NRCS will re-engineer the planning and programmatic data, reduce redundancy in planning tools and data entry, segregate planning and financial functions, streamline current workflows to free up resources and make new tools that are easier to learn and operate for the conservation agents.
iCropTrak was chosen for the new Mobile Conservation Planner portion of these efforts because it can help NRCS achieve these goals as well as help:
- Redefine “work” as an activity, not a “location”.
- Enhance collaboration between workers and leadership.
- Provide information in-hand and on-demand everywhere.
- Reduce time spent travelling and commuting.
- Improve customer satisfaction thru increased customer accessibility and accelerated service delivery.
iCropTrak is a user customizable mobile application designed for in-field farming applications including field boundary management, scouting, sampling, documenting and tracking farming operations. All this power is easy-to-learn and easy-to-operate by design, so you can spend more time farming and less time managing your data. Unique to this technology is the ability for the software to be customized per field-user based on a number of variables including their roles and permissions in the organization and based on personal preferences like language. iCropTrak comes with Amazon cloud support for centralized data and user management, reporting and collaboration.
