On Wednesday, 25th of May, Limerick based Digital Transformation firm, ActionPoint was awarded Private Sector- IT Project of the Year at the Tech Excellence Awards at the Royal Marine Hotel in Dublin.
The award acknowledged the cutting-edge software and use of Cloud in ‘FarmOps’, a decision support app for dairy and beef farmers commissioned by Agri- firm Munster Bovine and developed by ActionPoint.
ActionPoint CEO, David Jeffreys believes that this award highlights the importance of Digital Transformation in business and credits those who embrace it:
“This award is a credit to the ActionPoint team who continuously strive to deliver these transformative digital projects to our customers. Munster Bovine is a prime example of an innovative organisation who understands what Digital Transformation can do for businesses, improving not only internal processes but also Customer Experience.”
Munster Bovine’s vision was to build a unique app for dairy and beef farmers that would interpret their herd data and present real insights and recommendations, creating meaningful value for the farm’s bottom line.
The objective was to deliver a novel herd management technology that combines data interpretation and decision support for all farmers and would be scalable into the future.
Dr Doreen Corridan, CEO at Munster Bovine noted that ActionPoint’s passion, in-depth knowledge and experience in software development has been an important success factor in the commercialisation of FarmOps.
“Munster Bovine wanted to channel our veterinary expertise into an app that presents task lists generated from complex data that guide the farmer in their day-to-day management. Since the app was first launched, the feedback has been hugely positive. Farmers depend on FarmOps at key times of the year such as during the breeding season or at dry off, to make better decisions and achieve the best outcomes. ActionPoint’s Software team were pivotal to the delivery of this project, from architecture and design, to testing and deployment on the Azure platform. They are a trusted partner. This accolade, following on from the Microsoft Partner of the year award last year, recognises FarmOps as a world class AgTech solution.” Doreen commented.
