ARGUMENTATION ABOUT THE INNOVATIVE CHARACTER
We are committed to help the potato and onion industry with taking the first steps toward the practical use of Big Data for crop storage. Introducing the foundation for modern farming: iHotraco Storage Data. iHotraco Storage Data collects and organizes all data from your crop storages automatically, reliably and securely, using the latest data sharing technology. It provides a complete data set that is centrally stored in a standardized format, easily retrieved for management dashboards.
ADDED VALUE FOR THE USER (IN COMMERCIAL TERMS, USER-FRIENDLINESS ...)
iHotraco Storage Data enables farmers to monitor and share their data efficiently. The reliability and completeness of iHotraco ensure that all data will be stored on the cloud, even with frequent internet interruptions. The system encrypts all data before it is uploaded and stored according to the highest security standards. By combining the data from the storage with the data from the field, you gain insight into the entire process. With this complete insight, well-considered decisions can be made that lead to better results.
ADDED VALUE FOR THE FURTHER SUSTAINABILITY AND PROFESSIONALIZATION OF THE POTATO SECTOR
In the coming years, smart farming will grow exponentially. The importance and usability of Big Data is rapidly increasing. We are moving from data, to information, to insight, to action, to results. iHotraco Storage Data is created to collect data in the exact way this revolution calls for and helps growers and farmers take their next steps to the future of farming. With the correct data, growers can optimize their storage processes for the best possible storage results and for the most efficient and economical possible process. The higher the quality of the potatoes, the fewer the losses. That is good for sustainability and good for commerce.
