Modernizing Oil Palm Plantations

QuartoConnect, a new application by LintraMax (M) Sdn Bhd, helps oil palm planters streamline work processes at their plantations. The new application, which runs on mobile devices functions as a tool for planters to digitally record data of activities on the field and have them stored in a cloud-bases system making it easier for managers at the main office to access field data. The application which is now available for palm oil plantations in Malaysia and Indonesia, would no longer need planters to rely on log books or other manual methods.

Khor Kheng Khoon, founder and managing director of LintraMax says, “LintraMax’s goal is to digitize agricultural practices. In 2016, we launched Quarto which was a catalyst for customers to embrace digital solutions for their plantations. We saw there was still an information gap between field operations and monitoring, and that is why we have come up with QuartoConnect.”

Among the key features of QuartoConnect are the monitoring of worker attendance whereby the application is integrated with a biometric device to read fingerprints. The application can also monitor crop harvesting by recording crop production with GPS location tagging. Apart from that, the application also allows crop evacuation by monitoring crop evacuation efficiency to improve crop freshness and reduce crop backlog and losses.

Users can record data even when the application is offline in plantation areas where there is no internet connection. All data will be uploaded to its cloud-based central system once it is connected to the internet. Khor hopes the digitization of these processes will help improve trace-ability and monitoring of field operations.

QuartoConnect is available directly from LintraMax via a subscription basis.
