Fancom's control computers and management software comply with the new AgroConnect data standard. This enables relevant management information such as feed and water consumption, climate data, animal weight and egg counts to be exchanged with management data systems from different brands.
The AgroConnect data standard is a joint initiative between a number of manufacturers of control equipment and suppliers of Business Intelligence systems. This signals an important step towards creating an open data exchange model within which each supplier, with the permission of the owner of the data, can make the data of their customers/users available to other parties in a secure, cloud environment.
The ultimate aim is to implement this data in services that create added value for farmers and help enhance efficiency and strengthen their competitive position.
