We offer tools and services to collect, manage, and share data along the agricultural value chain. We work with specialty coffee producers in Latin America, where we help producer cooperatives collect and manage the data that is vital to their operations using mobile phones, tablets, and PCs. Using our tools, cooperatives can make data-driven decisions and share information with lenders, buyers, and other partners in the value chain.
