VAS - Valley Agricultural Software
Transforming dairy management
We helped the most important dairy management company in the US to succeed in this digital area by modernizing their current applications.
The goal was to move their legacy applications onto a modern infrastructure with an enhanced User Experience (UX), thereby providing better opportunities for growth and scaling in business, gaining access to new markets in new countries, new segments and customers.
About Valley Agricultural Software
With more than 60 years in the market Valley Agricultural Software (VAS) is the global market leader in connected farm management systems.
VAS specializes in providing a suite of products for helping dairy farmers keep track of their cattle, their feeding, their performance and even the economics of their dairies.
The starting point
After 30 years of development, the VAS suite of dairy management products was facing some of these problems:
- Difficulties to scale
- Difficulties to synchronize the work
- Compliance-based operational problems
- Difficulties finding customers' localizations
- Limitations to expand the business
Educating our team on the field
Our team traveled to Tulare, CA in order to have on-site interviews with the main users and start with the development of our Discovery Phase. The goal was to understand how they worked so that we could detect pain points and suggest opportunities for improvement.
Exploring the agricultural field
As experts in transforming business we developed a strategic technology roadmap and uncovered many compliance-based, operational problems, especially in terms of the ability to reconcile and keep track of where customers were.
