Breeder or agro-technician, you are using a plant breeding software for your daily activities in breeding, testing, analytical. You run digital tools to collect data, validate the information, take decisions and monitor your activity. The plant breeding software is not only your daily work instrument, it provides also the dashboards to organize and monitor the breeding programs.
Keystone of the seed company's innovation center, your breeding department is connected to all the actors of the research department, from the objectives setting up to production. You exchange information and work closely with the other activities, and have much to gain in sharing information fastly and securely. With a groupware such as RnDExperience®, the plant breeding software can get integrated throughout the whole department, it becomes a collaborative IT system.
How the plant breeding software satisfies every user's needs, and enables the whole research department to work together securely and efficiently ?
All along the breeding program, you follow several operations: Crosses and hybridization, Inbred line production, test crosses and trials, reporting... The plant breeding software supports you and your team at every key stage thanks to specific tools. The plasticity of the software enables to configure it according to your corporate standards and also with your own customs. With tools based on your own methods, the plant breeding software enables you to make the most of your expertise in agronomy and breeding.
When you choose parental lines for your next crossings, you like to do it your way: Select a list of males and females with your own criteria, give attention to specific traits and combining abilities to make your selection. And you can do the same in the plant breeding software, quickly, without hazardous data manipulation, on a powerful crossing matrix. Every step of your breeding program gets optimized by a tool configured to your use preferences. You may even discover new useful features included in the system and start using it !
New technologies bring innovative features to the plant breeding software. At Doriane, with our 30 years of agro and IT expertise, we have noticed how breeders and agronomists benefit from interactive graphics and instant reporting for instance: Free from individual data, you can focus on key performance indicators and general trends. Liberated from repetitive tasks, you get more productive and responsive. An example is how Caussade semences optimizes field monitoring with a synchronized fleet of scoring apps.
Working at the heart of the research department, you depend on other activities to conduct your breeding studies: laboratory, testing department, research management, IT department, warehouse stocks, product develoment... If every activity has its own software delivering heterogeneous information, you can always import it manually or inquire the service of IT experts to build an ETL² system that converts automatically the data to your plant breeding software.
Example of processes integration
But there is much to gain in using the same software throughout the whole research department. Firstly, interoperability enables to share research work with the other actors (laboratory automation for instance). Besides, homogeneous information from the various activities can be queried and combined easily in real time. With RnDExperience®, every activity gets its own configuration, with specific data and tools, thanks to a strict separation between the software core and its configuration, and the ability to deploy various configurations.
User right management in RnDExp®
An integrated collaborative system enables every researcher to track, automate and share samples, provided that he has the access rights on the activity, process and data. The IT department benefits from this configuration that reduces the system heterogeneity and from the scalability ensuring the durability of the project. And research managers highly appreciate the real time dashboards and standardized reports facilitating piloting and decision-making. Last but not least, centralized IT systems tend to be less expensive in the long run³.
