Leading data insight company Proagrica, part of the global RELX Group, has today launched the roll-out to the agri-food supply chain of Agility, the revolutionary data platform which collects, aggregates, cleans and delivers accurate and timely data from multiple trusted sources.


Agility is already giving businesses, across the agriculture supply chain, competitive advantage through actionable insights and data analytics to see:

What success factors and limitations are driving their business?
Why did they happen and what data-sets can identify them?
What identified areas in their control can they and/or their key partners improve?
How can actionable data ensure these improvements are qualified and developed?
Already in use by major international businesses, Agility is now being implemented in Europe, North America, and Australasia.

"This is nothing short of a business revolution," says Nick Evans, Head of Agility. "Agility is delivering unprecedented results for the onboarded businesses so far. We already have significant numbers of new users at every level of the supply chain, using the service to give their business enhanced decision-making capabilities."

From farmers, with their advisors and suppliers, growing more productive, higher quality and more profitable produce, to processors seeing greater profits through more efficient factories and logistics, Agility has the capability to help change the supply chain like no other platform.

"Every step of the supply chain benefits," explains Mr Evans. "Agility makes it possible to anticipate and plan for major decisions that affect every business. Our fully integrated system makes sense of data from all sources whether generated by the company, its suppliers, customers or external third parties."

Bringing together the integration pedigree of F4F, now part of Proagrica, and the enormous global reach in big data experience of the RELX Group, Proagrica have now made the impossible possible by delivering a platform which:

Provides greater visibility of production practices and outcomes.
Turns siloed internal data into actionable intelligence when integrated with previously inaccessible external data.
Reduces assumptions and information gaps allowing for faster commercial decisions - confident, informed and accurate.
From farm production to food manufacturers, brands and grocers, the millions of aggregated data points Agility delivers, enable those companies to personalise recommendations for their customers, make immediate improvements to the customer experience, improve productivity and deliver business efficiency.

Proagrica have already seen huge traction from Agility in advance of the official launch.

IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts, e.g. apples with marks or color deviations. To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. IDS NXT ocean is a user-friendly all-one-one system which requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming. Only sample images and knowledge on how to evaluate them (e.g. "good apples" / "bad apples") are needed. This makes the start into AI-based image processing particularly easy. Camera hardware, software, infrastructure and support come from a single company. For beginners, IDS offer the IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit, which includes all components and workflows to create, train and run a neural net.
