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.
Collinson has been a manufacturer of agricultural feeding solutions for over 50 years. With FeedAlert, they are revolutionising feed monitoring.
Key features and highlights
IoT-based feed tracking and management system
Users of the FeedAlert app can track the live feed levels of multiple silos. For each silo, they can see remaining feed, capacity, feed type, last filled date, usage analytics, etc., for last 7-days along with the silo location.
It’s easy to set alerts for various feed levels like 30% of capacity, 10% of capacity, empty, refilled and overfill. Users can choose to get alerts via push notifications or email, and track feed levels on the go.
Farmers can easily check daily usage analytics for past 30 days and forecasts for upcoming days. As a result, they can place their orders and replenish feeds in time and avoid delays and wastage.
Core technology and features implemented
The FeedAlert app is part of the IoT-based feed management system enabling digital feed monitoring and management for the farmers.

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.
