Hivekit releases “Farm Management in a Box”

Hivekit combines asset, staff and vehicle tracking with metrics and sample collection. It displays all collected data in a 3D version of your farm - complete with moving vehicles and farm staff, harvest performance and soil sample overlays and custom dashboards for each type of asset.

From here, farm managers can assign tasks and give commands that Hivekit translates into individual instructions and forwards to farm staff and machines via Hivekit’s mobile app.. Hivekit also allows to automate recurring processes with simple macros: Let Hivekit assign the nearest staff member to fill it up again, all without the need for intervention by the farm manager.

All this comes now in a compact form factor. Hivekit’s “Farm Management in a box” is a single file that can run on any computer on the farm, stores data locally and comes with open APIs that make it easy to connect vehicles and equipment, regardless of vendor.

“Farmers are increasingly weary of being locked into vendor ecosystems and relying on external online services to manage their operations” says Hivekit CEO Wolfram Hempel. “With the “in a box” concept we wanted to provide a real alternative that puts the farmer back in control.

“Farm Management in a Box” is now available from and comes with free personal setup support and training as part of the package.
