automated supply chain

Watch this short video!

Working with our partner Zag, Ballance Agri-Nutrients, the New Zealand-based farming co-operative used Neptune Software’s low-code rapid application development platform, Neptune DXP, to automate their supply chain processes and build an app to speed up collections and enhance Health and Safety at its service centers.

Integrating with the existing SAP system, the app delivers a digital shopping cart directly to Loader drivers, so they no longer have to leave the cab to deal with paper-based dockets.

Watch the video and hear how Neptune DXP is so intuitive, it took no training to get started on building apps.

“The Neptune Software solution was perfect for us. The flexibility and power of the app mean we can develop on the fly.”

“A software system that is so darn simple it doesn’t even need to be trained.”
