When Citri Fruit Packing on the farm Groot Patrysvlei was urgently looking at replacing its produce data capturing and management tool earlier this year, ViTrax was lauded by several users. Managing director Rentia Visser researched all available options at the time and finally settled on Farsoft’s integrated information system after strong user references.
“The beauty of ViTrax is that it works backwards. In addition, the management reports are so comprehensive that I never need to go into the system anymore to extract data. But best of all is the system’s user-friendliness and the superb backup from the Farsoft team. They certainly live up to their reputation,” she said.
Groot Patrysvlei Boerdery is a young farm with approximately 100 ha citrus in the Clanwilliam area, producing about 100 000 cartons of oranges, easy peelers and lemons. Visser explained that it had been a novelty getting involved hands-on for the first time after her father’s passing last year. “Despite the recessionary conditions, the season was quite successful. However, we’re hoping to attract more customers at our pack house next season.
