Project summary

Feed management app for smart monitoring

Collinson has been a trusted manufacturer of agricultural storage silos for more than 50 years. They were looking to develop a silo monitoring system app for iOS and Android for FeedAlert, their IoT-based feed management system.

Without a monitoring app, farmers, who use the silos for animal feed, could only determine how much feed remains in their silos by manually looking at the levels through the windows.

We designed and developed the FeedAlert app that allows farmers to remotely monitor their feed 24/7 remotely, get timely alerts, forecasts, calibrate the device and share data.

Client review

I'm really impressed with how enjoyable they've made the whole experience for us despite the challenges we encountered. I'm also impressed with their ability to understand what we were trying to accomplish and how much they contributed to our efforts. They didn't just do what we asked of them — they were proactive in providing recommendations, and that has resulted in a better product overall.
