ESE™ Aqua Solution modules

The SourceTrace ESE™ Aqua solution is designed specifically for your market and business processes. The core modules of Aqua solution are:

Farmer, farm and pond enrollment

  • Farmer, farm and pond data are collected and a unique profile is created in a Centralized Database
  • Profile data comprise elemental information from the farmer and detailed information for Certification Standards such as BAP, Naturland or others.
  • Geo-referenced farm data including pond plot area and perimeter can be captured during the enrollment process with the mobile application

Pond Monitoring

Keep track of the key operating indicators of the pond

  • Through pond monitoring ensures proper handling and quality. Estimated volume of produce is also known through pond enrollment
  • Deliveries above expected volume can be spotted using ESE™ Aqua Solution during procurement transaction (comparing estimated volume Vs. delivered volume)
  • Seedling data
  • Daily feed data
  • Sample growth monitoring
  • Water quality
  • Disease and remedial measures
  • Harvest information
  • Useful to keep track of new farming practices and experimental ponds

Input Distribution

Inputs distribution allow to keep track of the transactions specially under “contract farming” where farmer receives inputs from the organization:

  • Electronically document inputs movements
  • Track sanitizer, disinfectants, deodorizers, oxygen generators, probiotics (Soil/Water/Feed), feed additives, fish stimulants, fish hormone and any other input.
  • Monitor stocks, improve processes, and prevent leakages
  • Accurately calculate the inputs cost in overall of production cost
  • Control the amount of delivered inputs Vs. the number of ponds and area

e-Traceability

When dealing with a large small holder farmer base and a complex upstream supply chain traceability is one of the hardest goals to achieve. ESE™ Aqua, Farmer Centric Approach organization can achieve traceability from pond to table.

  • At the time of enrollment process, farmer, farms and ponds profiles, along with aquaculture practices are recorded. A unique ID is generated which identifies the source (Farmer) of the produce and links it with all the Farmer Centric data, like certifications, farming practices, and other information like GPS co-ordinates
  • Upstream traceability is unique for each supply chain but SourceTrace ESE™ platform has the flexibility to adapt to many different scenarios

Procurement and Payment

  • Procurement transactions recorded and transmitted in real-time, digital + printed receipt ensures highly reliable process
  • Quality, quantity, and price are captured and associated to the farmer
  • “Farmer Accounts” can be settled instantly (delivered Inputs Vs. Procured produce)
  • Payment process can be automated and expedited at procurement time
  • Procured produce is automatically added to inventory stock
  • Procurement is a key link in the traceability chain, since connect origin of the product with upstream processing

Certification (ICS) BAP

  • Certification application enables farmer organizations and individuals to create and maintain a digital Internal Control System (ICS) to support Internal Audit process and comply with external certification audits
  • Ready to use certification templates like BAP, Naturland and other standards can be added upon request
  • Collect data directly from the field saving transcription time and increasing data integrity and quality
  • Geo referenced data and pictures of the farm/pond for source traceability
  • Keep track of non-conformities

Advisory services

Voice and Text Based services

  • Disseminate all information about management to the field staff
  • Weather report
  • Messaging details about meeting and other information related to the field activities
  • Farmer can share his observation using voice messaging, which the farm management can listen and act accordingly.
