In the world where we have an endless array of gadgets and gizmos at our fingertips, making communication and data analysis easier than ever, paper is a sign of inefficiency.
Think about your paper trail as it relates to treating seed. A customer orders a batch of seed to be treated, which is typically initiated through accounting procedures. That order then must be transferred to the seed treatment facility/operator. Once complete, it must be passed back to accounting for billing. Then there’s the inventory component. That’s a lot of paper — and probably a lot of manual and/or double-entry of data. Without thinking about it, you might not consider how much time is spent tracking, reporting and sharing information as it relates to a seed treatment order.
