10 Bbbb bbb Case Study: Compania Argentina De Granos Vvvvvvvv Vvvvv Vvv Vvvvv V vvv Business Challenge: Compañia Argentina De Granos (CAGSA) wanted agricultural producers in Argentina to have a better way of communicating throughout the supply chain that affects the time to market for their crops Argentina is second largest country in South America (1 million square miles) with many agri-producers working daily in fields sometimes 125 miles from home but dependant on copper wire connections from home or satellite services Solution: CAGSA worked with their carrier, Telecom Personal, and a developer, Syncrologix Mobile Solutions, to adapt Syncrologixs SmartTasks application. Agricultural producers use the application on their BlackBerry® smartphones, which connects with CAGSAs ERP system, to arrange for grain pick ups, track shipments, request fertilizer and supply delivery and check market and weather conditions. Results: CAGSA is perceived as a market leader leap frogging many of their Western counterparts Agricultural producers are more loyal to CAGSA since the system makes them feel secure about their grain shipments Many agricultural producers use the BlackBerry smartphone for their families, instead of phones Offers a simple method to offer information and make wireless business transactions. The BlackBerry solution was accepted by agri-producers because it meant they could always be in touch. Not needing a wire to send an or make a phone call was a huge advantage to them because they work in the middle of nowhere and had been totally disconnected until they got their BlackBerry smartphones. - Gaston Kauer, CIO, CTO, COO, CAGSA - An agricultural broker for agri-producers across Argentina, supplying a variety of information and services to this community of farmers
