Company Overview

Pandolfi Price is an organic winery located in Santa Inés in southern Chile, dedicated to using sustainable viticulture practices to produce its world-class, artisanal wines. Established in 2002, this family-owned vineyard hand-harvests grapes with minimal intervention, and integrates a mix of stewardship practices including, water conservation technology and solar energy to decrease its carbon footprint.

The Challenge

  • 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 Solution

 

Eskuad’s mobile app gives 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.
