Founded six years ago to increase traceability and reduce the paperwork associated with keeping track of operations, HarvestYield has been updated with a new inventory system. The key to this feature is said to be the ability to keep track of fuel, from filling up machines to keeping track of how it is being used.
“Keeping traceable records of which machine filled up from which tank helps inform job profitability calculations,” said Chris Walmsley, co-founder of HarvestYield.
With the inventory system, managers can add all fuel tanks on-farm and operators can select where fuel was taken from when filling up. Other stored inventories, like bales, can also be tracked using this feature. Operators can indicate whether they are taking from or adding to the stock at specific locations on their job sheets.
This gives clear records of where and when stock has been moved. Wastage can be accounted for and if the totals don’t add up, managers can add amends to keep track of unexplained discrepancies. Inventories can also be marked on a map to share locations with staff.
While the HarvestYield website does have invoicing capabilities, many contractors are moving to cloud-based systems such as Xero. The company indicates that millions of pounds of work have been recorded through the HarvestYield software and that quickly sending out invoices is the first step for contractors to get paid.
Now the system can be linked to Xero to further reduce the time spent invoicing. Job data is copied directly onto the invoice to increase accuracy and traceability.
