• Extreme weather
• Poor Connectivity
• Lost Field Data
• Slow Data and Report Generation
• Equipment Delays
• Operational efficiencies
Life in the field is never easy. This is especially true for natural resource companies with field teams operating in extreme conditions. Distance, climate and connectivity take a toll on operational efficiency— especially data collection and report generation.
Pandolfi Price used paper records to track its fieldwork operations. The lack of a digital platform to capture information in real-time and run reports limited the company’s ability to measure inventory, control fuel costs, and improve overall productivity..
Lost paperwork due to weather conditions also made it difficult to track machinery maintenance, prevent failures, monitor fieldwork, and streamline employee payroll payments.
The Eskuad forms in the mobile app give Pandolfi Price the capability to immediately—and reliably—capture and expand the range of data it needs, eliminating lost paperwork and creating historical records which facilitate better decision-making and improved real-time management of the vineyards. Having access to Eskuad data reports and feeding data directly to a data visualization system, allows them to streamline their field operations and cut costs.

“Eskuad is a very user-friendly system. Having this system for collecting data and reports in an organized and easy-to-understand way is helpful in stressful times. It provides me with good information about the work carried out in the field. Whenever I use it, I can log in without any problems.”
