Why Digital Records Are the Way to Go

Why Digital Records Are the Way to Go

Increased Efficiency, Accuracy, and Data Accessibility

Digital records can streamline data entry and retrieval processes, making using them faster and more accurate compared to manual record-keeping, especially in a sector like agriculture where employee turnover rates are high. Digital entry reduces errors associated with handwritten or paper-based systems. Having the ability to search for all current and past employees with a couple of keyboard strokes is much more efficient than digging through the old filing cabinet or, worse, a garbage bag full of punch cards.

Authorized personnel can also access digital records simultaneously and remotely. On 2nd Sight’s portal, you can make several users for each portal account, with each user assigned different roles. This facilitates collaboration and decision-making across different departments or locations, leading to more informed and timely decisions.


Data Analysis and Compliance

Digital records make it easier to analyze large data sets. Agricultural companies can use data analytics tools to gain valuable insights into crop performance, resource utilization, and overall farm efficiency. This, in turn, enables data-driven decision-making and precision agriculture practices. 2nd Sight labor tracking systems such as FairPick and FairTrak allow the user to add trackable metrics such as block, variety, location, and many other customizable options that allow administrators to dig into their processes and analyze their data.

Additionally, many agricultural operations are subject to regulatory requirements and reporting obligations. Having digital records can simplify compliance by automating the documentation process and ensuring that all necessary information is readily available for audits or reporting purposes.

Traceability and Inventory Management

Having access to digital records enables better traceability of products throughout the supply chain. Being able to track items throughout the process while simultaneously recording this information on an online portal is not only convenient, but is crucial for meeting quality standards, ensuring food safety, and responding quickly to recalls or quality issues.

Digital records make it easier to manage and track inventory levels, helping agricultural companies optimize their stock of inputs (seeds, fertilizers, etc.), manage harvest output, and monitor nursery stocks.

Cost Reduction and Scalability

By automating record-keeping processes, agricultural companies can reduce the time and resources spent on manual data entry and paperwork. This can lead to cost savings over time. For example, products such as FairPick, our automated harvest scale, often pay themselves off in as little as one season! This quick ROI results in year after year cost reduction in labor and maintenance for paper records.

Digital records can be easily adapted to changing business needs and can scale with the growth of the agricultural operation. New data sources and technologies can be integrated seamlessly. Often price is the upmost concern. 2nd Sight recommends incorporating one or two systems first to see the plethora of benefits that we offer. Once consumers can see the benefits firsthand, they can scale up quickly and affordably.



Consequently, the adoption of digital records in agriculture can enhance operational efficiency, provide valuable insights, ensure compliance, save money, and contribute to sustainable and precision farming practices.
