“AgriSmart simplifies my day and helps me get back out in the sunshine. It is a user friendly system and they have a great back-up team that are very quick to respond to my blonde moments. You don’t have to be tech savvy to use the system and I love the fact that it can be accessed by employees from their phones. The timesheet component is excellent and I refer to it daily to track employees hours and monitor overtime. I have also subscribed to the Health & Safety component this year and although I am not using it as fully as I’d like at present, I can see that it is functional, accessible and thorough in dealing with H&S. I would not hesitate to recommend the AgriSmart system to other dairy farmers as a great tool for streamlining ones business and particularly for tracking hours, and ensuring hourly rate and overtime are paid correctly.

“AgriSmart has provided us with such a simple, easy to use system to control our rosters and timesheets.The roster builder is quick and easy, we can create a full season roster at the click of the mouse and this is viewable immediately for all staff on their smartphones. Tasks can be added and all staff can view these, making a more efficient use of time. Paper timesheets are a thing of the past, these are filled in on their phones, meaning they are accurate and up to date. Through the dashboard, either on our phone or computer, we are able to see an overview of staff Annual Leave, Sick Leave and RTO balances, as well as see how staff are tracking against minimum wage for each pay period. Paying wages is easy with the programme giving us all the required information we need to pay our staff, including when we need to top up wages and how much this needs to be. All of our records are on the system, meaning that we don’t have piles of paper to file. Mark is open to questions and the follow up and support provided is fantastic. Updates and upgrades are frequent and the team take on board any feedback and suggestions to make the programme work even better for us. We would highly recommend AgriSmart to any dairy farm looking for a complete system that’s simple, quick and easy to use.

“From staff timesheets to rosters AgriSmart has removed the need for endless paper with it all being online that employer and employees can access whilst still maintaining confidentiality. The support from AgriSmart is amazing they will assist you through whatever question that you may have and can look at the same screen as you and make adjustments where needed and this is a credit to their programme. I would highly recommend this programme to anyone wanting to streamline their business.

“In May of 2016 we started using AgriSmart as a way to keep a more accurate record of our staff’s working hours on our dairy farm.

It absolutely ticks all the boxes for us. Staff need to push one button on their phones to start work for the day and another when they go home for lunch and the same in the afternoon. Rostered days off, annual leave days, sick days and stat days are all accurately recorded and easy to look back on, as are previous years info.

When new employees come on board they are quickly set up and in the system without any hassle and quickly get the hang of using AgriSmart. The support team is awesome to deal with and always deals with queries quickly and efficiently.

We would highly recommend AgriSmart to any business like ours to eradicate the endless piles of paper, timesheets were creating for us prior to discovering AgriSmart.  The real time data of holidays, sick days and minimum wage calculations are also great.”

“Am just letting you know, that as of June 1st 2018, we will no longer need AgriSmart as we are employing contract milkers.

Our current Manager is to be our Contract Milker. He is taking up his own licence with AgriSmart. 

I have to say, though this is the best tool I have used. It’s simple to use and not full of complicated components I would never use. I just wish it had been around years ago!

Thanks so much for making life so much easier this past season.”
