Challenges

Struggling to Identify Signals From Vast Data

Tracking data when there are just a few data points makes sense. However tracking over 50+ individual data points per role per day including crop yields, soil moisture levels, and pest infestation while finding and fixing anomalies is a mammoth task.

Reduced Wastage

Several individual products are used in farming both during the growing season and after the harvest has been collected. The process must be optimised to minimise waste, including the distribution of seeds, fertilisers, and pesticides; as well as the grain that has already been harvested.

Problem With Existing Solutions

Excel Sheets

Spreadsheets reached their limitations in handling the large volumes of data that Jiva generates efficiently. It becomes increasingly challenging to manage and analyse this data accurately using Excel alone.

Weekly Review Calls

The team at Jiva had scheduled weekly review calls to discuss how the stock was at different warehouses and how dispatch was progressing. This made the system very static, leading to delays in problem-solving and decision-making.

Arnav Pandey, CPO, on how Locale eliminated the need for weekly stock review calls.

Use Cases

Manage Stock Levels

Locale.ai generates alerts to notify the internal team about the stock levels. This ensures that the team is promptly informed about inventory remaining, allowing them to take necessary actions such as restocking or adjusting procurement plans.

Managing shelf life

Alerts are utilised to manage products with limited shelf life effectively. Locale.ai tracks expiration dates and sends notifications to relevant stakeholders, enabling them to optimise the utilisation of these products before they expire. This helps in reducing wastage and improving overall efficiency in inventory management.

Mitigated Financial Risks

Locale.ai monitors the data on financial transactions and identifies creditors who may pose a risk. In cases where creditors do not respond to updates or show signs of potential default, alerts are triggered to notify the concerned parties. This allows Jiva to take necessary precautions, to mitigate financial risks.

Impact

Streamlined operations

With alerts about the stock levels, Jiva no longer needs a regular call to discuss this specific task. This has reduced the risk of delays or missed opportunities due to stock shortages, ensuring smooth operations and uninterrupted supply to customers.
