Demonstration Work-IT at Fruit Logistica
Work-IT is a real-time management information system that provides feedback on business processes, such as staff performance, cultivation and harvest activities, productions costs and crop health. This enables growers to easily make any necessary adjustments, enabling them to save up to 15% on labor costs. The practically-oriented software modules and smart phone apps are available in several languages and can be customized to the needs of any nursery worldwide. From 8 until 10 February 2017, Work-IT will be demonstrated at Fruit Logistica in Berlin at Hoogendoorn’s stand (Hall 3-2, stand A-05).
