Unlocking agrifood data potential

Digital readiness level one

  • Agrifood businesses often have disorganized, unstructured data in isolated silos, hindering its utility.
  • The Yield offers a Precision Yield Management Platform to establish a solid analytics foundation swiftly.
  • Using The Yield’s Mobile App and Analytics Portal empowers teams to make data-driven decisions, boosting effectiveness and confidence for on-farm and off-farm success.

“It’s always amazing when we sit down with customers and their key people at this stage. There’s no shortage of problems to solve and there are many opportunities to use data. The exhilarating part is when data ceases to be the focal point. The minute we get a standardized view of customer operations in place, we can focus on tackling challenges and generating immediate value.”
Darren Clarke

Chief Customer Success and Operations Officer, The Yield

How The Yield can help your business get to the next level

Once you have the Level 1 digital readiness foundation in place, you’re ready to move to the next level. We use a Vertical Slice methodology to deliver solutions to high-value problems. A vertical slice uses all aspects of The Yield’s platform – data ingestion, model deployment, delivery of insights – to provide an end-to-end solution. This creates value faster, builds confidence and gives you the power to incrementally build value at the same time as controlling costs.

“We love working with customers at this level — getting the data they have in one place and making it accessible. It’s like getting a new pair of glasses. Suddenly you can see all the things you’ve been missing. We focus on delivering quick wins and building confidence.”

Ros Harvey, founder and CEO, The Yield

“Digital enablement projects at this stage often result in great user benefits with relatively low cost and low-risk technical changes. Our platform makes it easy.”
