Challenges
1) Annual Trial Planning
They struggled with organizing and planning their trials on an annual basis. Coordinating resources, timelines, and data collection processes proved challenging without a centralized system.
2) Data preservation
They relied on multiple sources, including pen and paper, to record trial data. This approach posed problems with data aggregation and the retention of institutional knowledge, particularly when employees with valuable expertise retired.
3) Knowledge Sharing and Flow
The flow of information between field-level agronomists and executives was inefficient. The lack of a structured platform hindered effective communication and collaboration, leading to several inefficiencies and delays in decision-making.
4) Workload and Personnel KPI Tracking
It was difficult for team members to track their individual workloads and key performance indicators (KPIs). Without a centralized solution, monitoring progress and performance was cumbersome and time-consuming.
Results
1) Accelerated product development times:
Agmatix's trial Management solution streamlined their product development process, making it more efficient. The company reduced its time-to-market, improved resource allocation, and enhanced overall project management. This efficiency can result in cost savings and increased productivity.
2) Streamlined Trial Reporting
Trial reports that previously took several days to produce now require only a few hours. The platform's intuitive interface and automation capabilities enable quick and efficient report generation, which shortens their registration preparation processes, freeing up valuable time for other tasks.




3) Enhanced Data Visualization
Agmatix's Trial Management solution provides powerful data visualization features, allowing the team to view trial results and detect anomalies in data collection in real-time. Data visualization offered immediate insights, facilitating prompt decision-making.
4) Paperless Operations
The transition to a digital trial management platform eliminated the need for separate spreadsheets and hand-written notes. All trial-related work is now documented exclusively within the platform, ensuring data integrity and centralization.
5) Efficient Task Sharing
The platform enables seamless task assignment and tracking between team members. Collaboration is simplified, and progress can be monitored in real-time, ensuring efficient and effective workflow management.
6) Executive Dashboard
Agmatix's Trial Management solution offers an executive dashboard, providing a clear overview of workload distribution and allowing executives to monitor personal and departmental KPIs. The dashboard enhances transparency and accountability within the team.

Cost-effective cameras: More options for automation

Budget-friendly cameras can be considered an important growth driver for automation. IDS Imaging Development Systems has developed several camera families for this purpose, which are available with different resolutions, housings and lens mounts in order to optimize the development of machine vision projects. IDS' low-cost cameras of the uEye XLE, XCP and XLS series are, like all IDS cameras, characterized by "quality made in Germany", user-friendliness and long availability. The models are equipped with the basic functions for high-quality, industry-standard image evaluation and avoid unnecessary over-engineering. Furthermore, their small size makes them well-suited for embedded vision applications. One of the latest additions: a 20 MP onsemi sensor that makes it easy do discover tiny details.
