2018 has been another great year for the Rade team. Here’s a taster of a few of the projects we’ve been able to get our teeth into…
We’ve built a data capture app that accurately records data out in the field, for the early identification of both animal and human health issues. The app connects with a diagnostic testing device for the collection of time-stamped, geo-tagged data. The app, as demonstrated at the Agri-Tech East conference, enables the management and analysis of that data with user-friendly display.
When you are a manufacturer with thousands of products, you want your website to showcase that extensive range. We’ve built a complex site that enables customers to find exactly the component they need by having access to datasheets and 3D models. Equally important, the website is easy to manage, enabling staff to concentrate their time on growing the business.
As part of a Pan-European project, another Rade site promotes the effective sharing of scientific research, market and data sources. We've also rolled-out seven new country-specific sites for a machinery manufacturer. It’s this ability to collaborate and share resources to a huge audience which demonstrates the value of a well-designed site.
Once again we made the front page of the Farmers Weekly, this time with the PGRO's Pea & Bean Guide - described as an 'essential arable farming app'. As well as up to date agronomy and variety guides, the app is capable of submitting and recording crop reports of pests and diseases.
Along with interesting web projects for new customers, we’ve revamped a number of sites for existing clients and added new web tools for extra functionality. From simple face-lifts to comprehensive reviews, our primary aims are:
a) mobile-friendly sites that better engage with your customers and
b) sites that are easy to manage.
Our IT team has been out and about working at some interesting premises and venues. The number of customers with regular support contracts continues to grow - there really is a diverse range of businesses in and around Suffolk.
Our wireless broadband network now connects properties in 74 villages across east Suffolk. Recently, Suffolk Coastal awarded us a contract as part of their Enabling Broadband project, which aims to improve access to broadband for people living in the areas outside BT's fibre plans.
We have other exciting on-going projects planned for 2019 – just watch this space and get in touch if you have a project which could benefit from our involvement.
