Denkavit had used JD Edwards for back office administration since 2005 with business intelligence at the center of their operations.
Denkavit needed a strategic partner to help them future proof their systems and implement a customized solution to monitor the animals at their research farms.
The customized solution had been in use since 2012, and combined the back-office system with the Veal Farmer Portal (VFM) accessible on iPad. The iPad allows the calf specialist to request and capture data while in the barn. The dashboard information is also available in PDF format so that it can be presented off line to the veal farmer. The system allows Denkavit to monitor the health of individual calves in real-time, and to monitor feed stocks and administration.
One important success factor was the clear definition of measurements so that all data was entered consistently, for unambiguous reporting. The Calf Value Rating was a good example. This figure is measured by calf based on average daily growth, and compared with calves in other herds.
