SUpport and Security for FARMS

Keeping Farm Computers Running

With many farms increasingly depending on technology to carry out their day-to-day work, whether it’s doing the accounts, processing animal welfare and movements records, running equipment such as automated milking parlours or managing farm-diversification activities, there’s no doubt that technology use in farming is only going to increase as time goes by.

And so as the dependency on technology increases, so does the need to maintain the systems that are used to run the business.  After all, what would the impact on your farm and associated businesses be if the computer systems were unavailable for a prolonged period of time?

Are you getting what you and your business needs?

Whether you have a current I.T provider or a small existing team looking after your day to day needs, it’s possible your business could benefit from strategic direction from an impartial third-party.  That’s where Siarp can help.  We have a broad range of skills across multiple areas of technology and are able to offer strategic advice and guideance to help you solve problems in a different way.

Make Better Decisions

You might not need a full-time I.T director, especially if your business is not big enough to justify employing someone to fill the role.  That doesn’t mean your business can’t benefit from having independent advice from someone who knows and understands your business and where you want to take it.

Working on an impartial basis, we would get to know you and your business, attending meetings as needed and listening to your business strategy, helping you to understand and identify the right technology to succeed on your journey.

Vendor Management

As with most businesses, you’ll likely have many vendors from I.T Support to hardware providers and specialist software vendors.  We can take on the role of managing these relationships to help ensure you’re getting the most out of these companies.  By translating the business needs into technical needs we can keep your plans on track. 

Mentoring

Have you started to build an internal I.T team with a junior member of staff looking after your day to day needs?  If so, perhaps you could benefit from an experienced mentor helping to guide them.  It can be a lonely role at times, especially when things are not going to plan.  Give your team the support they need and guidance to help develop them into the senior team member that will keep your business working like a well-oiled-machine.

How does it work?

Take as much or as little time as you like.  What is important is that we’re able to get to know you and your business.  Ideally we’d meet at least monthly, catching up on your pain points, plans and goals.
