We're now nearing the end of level three, six weeks since level four lockdown here in New Zealand. Over the last six weeks we've had twenty nine staff working from home, and our production (manufacturing) team began working at our premises from the start of level three. We would like to thank all our customers, suppliers and resellers for your cooperation and support over the last six weeks. As of the eighth of May we have all backorders sorted and return to normal shipping timeframes, although we are still seeing some delays with couriers who are experiencing massive freight volumes.
Air Quality Monitor
We are pleased to announce the imminent release of our air quality monitor which uses a Swiss designed particulate sensor. The monitor is designed for use as a monitoring and compliance solution specifically for PM2.5 and PM10. Detailed information about the system is included on our webpage.
DTS Milk Vat Monitoring Data Integration
We are pleased to announce Harvest can now offer integration of DTS milk vat monitoring data. This integration means that customers who have chosen DTS to monitor their vats through Fonterras MVMS programme will now also be able to see vat data on their Harvest site.
Please contact our sales team for more information.
Council Data Integration
A much requested feature has been the integration of council monitored river levels and flow rates. Recently we have been working with Greater Wellington Regional Council and Marlborough District Council and are now able to integrate their data. This integration means we are now able to show river information on your Harvest site. As part of this display we can setup any alerts that are required by your consent. See example below from a GWRC site that is used to decide on whether Masterton urban residents can use water around their property.
"We put in 4 soil moisture and temp probes last year and pretty much paid for them with one decision. We are used to it getting dry in October but the probes told me it was quite a bit drier than normal and getting worse fast. We brought forward our planned store lamb sales by 2 weeks and this allowed us to generate a good return for these lambs. Two weeks later and they would've been worth $30 grand less. The original cost of the probes was repaid many times over!"
