Agro Business System
Agro Business System (ABS) is the logistic software system for seed companies. Its flexible structure makes ABS also very suitable for other producers of agricultural materials such as bulbs, plants and cuttings. ABS covers all operational and management activities in the organization.
The system has been designed to manage each seed batch as unique objects. This puts ABS ahead of all of its competitors and makes it a perfect match for the industry.

ABS is your high tech connection with nature.
ABS is composed of modules covering:
In ABS the logistic planning is an up to date, consolidated planning that combines sales information (forecast, orderplan, orders and shipments), inventory, production and purchase to calculate the required quantities of a variety to produce.
The production module is specifically designed to manage the process of multiplication of the seeds. The administrative activities in the office are integrated with the activities in the field that monitor the growth of the crop. It includes the inventory management of the stockseed.
The inventory management has been specifically designed to handle seed. It starts with the production of a field. When the first harvest comes in, a lot number of the production field and a unique batch number are assigned. The lot number will never change and groups all batches from a field together.
The processing of seed is a very specific type of primary process. It is a mix of splitting and merging of batches of seed, which can occur at every step in the total process flow.
The route a product takes is dependent on the quality specifications and origin of the batch of seed. The processing planning is designed to have the flexibility that is required for managing the routing of a product, while a strict quality protocol can still be maintained.
The warehouse module controls the physical inventory. Batches can be stored at multiple locations and can also be spread over different plants.
Quality & Laboratory
As quality is an integrated part in all of the modules of ABS, there still is a special quality module. This module includes all the operational quality activities for handling the samples coming from inventory or processing activities. The process of testing these samples in a laboratory environment and processing the results to get the proper quality figures is completely automated.
Marketing / Sales
ABS offers the possibility to map a defined market per area, crop, crop type and customer group. This marketing planning module allows each sales organization to define the market position of all their varieties in the different market segments.
Forecasts and Salesorders are connected to the market planning.
The relations are, just as the products, entered only once in ABS and are then available for the all companies. The CRM screen gives a complete overview of historic and actual sales and the financial status of the customers.
