Cameron McIntosh from Total Viticulture Solutions has just completed the harvest of his second vintage - the first using TracMap. The addition of the new technology has made a marked difference across all areas of the business from vineyard to invoicing. "TracMap helps guys with rates and calibration, with the spraying and how much they need, accuracy as well. From the business side of things it helps with billing and there's just that reassurance for the client", Cameron says.
Whilst TracMap's versatility is a key benefit, you don't need a degree in computer science to put it to use. "Anyone can figure the basics out in ten minutes, send the job through to the unit and you know what to do and where you're meant to be", Cameron adds. It might be simple to use but what really sets TracMap apart from standalone GPS units for Total Viticulture Solutions is the scheduling and benchmarking capabilities. "If something changes you can update details really quickly and reschedule. You can also work out how long each job should take and plan staff and machinery requirements around that. It's fantastic and streamlines everything", he concludes.
