WHAT IS GEOTRACEABILITY?

OPTEL’s GeoTraceability technology offers powerful solutions for data collection and analysis, providing qualitative and quantitative data to track and authenticate raw materials.

Our GeoTraceability solutions can help optimize such data as demographics, field, infrastructure, monitoring, activities and traceability. The result is increased visibility at the source and direct communication with smallholders.

WHY IS GEOTRACEABILITY AN ASSET FOR YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN?

  • Secures supplies and the supply chain by offering sponsorship programs to engage smallholders
  • Improves smallholders’ productivity with personalized business plan tools, showing them how to optimize their time and resources and guiding them
  • Tracks the movements of raw materials throughout the supply chain  
  • Authenticates raw materials and certifications, with the ability to identify any non‑conformities, status confirmation or counterfeiting alerts

For example, OPTEL’s GeoTraceability solutions would allow a mill owner to connect to many suppliers, including small producers. Along with acquiring data and geolocation on the field, the visibility provided enables them to understand their suppliers and performance when the product is moving, as well as monitor their/its social and environmental impact, from field to mill.

Thanks to GeoTraceability, OPTEL offers opportunities to smallholders, inciting loyalty and brand protection, to ultimately increase their performance and productivity.

WE BRING ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO JUST ONE SOLUTION.

All the actionable data is hosted on one single hub ready for you to retrieve, review and analyze, either online or offline.

About GeoTraceability

THE STORY OF OPTEL’S GEOTRACEABILITY SOLUTIONS

In 2018, OPTEL became the only company with the ability to provide true end-to-end supply chain visibility when it acquired GeoTraceability, a leading provider of technical solutions for agriculture, fishing, forestry, mining and other sectors.

The data collection tools, traceability systems and online data hosting provided by OPTEL’s GeoTraceability solutions enable organizations to collect, process and analyze data in a cost-effective way.

The platform makes data accessible and actionable so organizations can make informed decisions about investments in sourcing processes and their supply chains, support smallholder farmers and small-scale producers, and improve the visibility of their products in supply chains.

Solutions for data collection and traceability include GPS mappingGIS technologymobile applications and barcoding systems. Our personalized software processes and packages data so it can be stored in a secure database. The database can be accessed via an online platform, while data collection and traceability tools work offline, allowing them to be used in remote locations.

The online platform allows users to view, analyze and report on their data as well as to securely share specific data with other stakeholders.

OPTEL's GeoTraceability Solutions

SURVEY DESIGN TOOLS

Our survey design tool allows users to build a questionnaire from an inventory of pre-tested questions and answers and include additional responses of their own. Once complete, we can prepare the technologies used to collect, process, host and retrieve this data in only 30 minutes.

MOBILE DATA COLLECTION APPS

Our easy-to-use mobile data collection applications can be used to gather field information on- or offline, such as socioeconomic data, field characteristics, agronomic practices, project activities or producer behavior.

GEO-SPATIAL TECHNOLOGY

Our GIS technology allows organizations to geo-locate producer fields and important infrastructures, such as schools, water sources and health services, while also providing an accurate measurement of production areas.

TRACEABILITY TOOLS

Because every supply chain is unique, our traceability tools are tailored to each individual project. We have tested and proven traceability solutions that use barcode and scanning methodologies to trace products along complex supply chains.

SMALLHOLDER SMS SYSTEM

Using the communications platform and service provider Nexmo, we allow users to send messages to targeted groups of producers via our web platform. Users can customize their communications with producers to suit their needs and contexts.

FARM BUSINESS PLAN BUILDER

OPTEL’s GeoTraceability solutions include a desktop application that processes field data and agronomic practices to generate appropriate recommendations for individual Farm Business Plans (FBPs). Digitizing this agronomic feedback loop allows organizations to create thousands of tailored FBPs at the click of a button.

INTERFACE PUSHES AND PULLS DATA BETWEEN DIFFERENT PLATFORMS

Our systems are flexible enough to interoperate with other platforms and data sources. Data collected using other software or devices can be integrated into the over-arching database and analyzed using OPTEL’S online GeoTraceability platform.
