Understanding the Challenge

Paper-Based Systems Causing Complications & Delays

Owners of swine farms were using manual, paper-based systems and hence, they were facing utmost delays and difficulties in managing swine health and all related healthcare procedures.

  • They found it difficult to manage and store paper-based documentation.
  • A manual system also made daily operations difficult and time-consuming.
  • It was hard to manage procedures and activities such as disease management, medication management, and stock mortality issues.
  • The farm owners found it hard to track the productivity of workers in the pig farms and ranches and didn’t have visibility of what was happening.
  • Reports would always take time, since the swine farm management had to wait for the workers to return from the fields to submit any findings.

Building the Solution

Digitizing Swine Health Management

In collaboration with the team at Zoetis, the design and development experts at Folio3 developed PigWise, a comprehensive swine health management software solution. The solution included a cross-platform mobile app for swine farm management and workers, and also a web-based admin dashboard for the farm owners and administrators. The mobile app allowed the caregivers to track, record, and manage swine health data as well as all related tasks and activities, while the admin application provides real-time updates from the field as well as analytical reports.

Our Approach

  • Understanding The User Journey

    Our product development team went through an intensive digital discovery program to understand the needs of swine farm owners and the challenges they were facing with manual and paper-based processes so that they could build the perfect solution that catered to every minute requirement. 

  • Building Wireframes

    The team then went on to map the workflows and user journeys to build wireframes, so the client could understand the application before it was built and ask for any changes.

  • Design & Development

    After getting the wireframes and clickable prototype approved by the client, our design and development teams went on to build the application as indicated by the storyboard and the wireframes. 

  • Quality Control Testing, Training, & Launch

    We went on to run tests on the application to ensure perfect usability. We also got the application tested by actual users before launch so that they can give valuable feedback while the application, and finally launched PigWise.
