Prawn farming is a significant component of the aquaculture industry, where freshwater prawns are raised and cultivated for eventual sale to various markets. Like many traditional businesses, prawn farms have historically relied on manual data entry and record-keeping processes.

Let’s explore how Canonic, revolutionized prawn farming for Kyoorius Aqua culture by streamlining data management and automation.

Problem Statement

Prior to implementing Canonic's solution, the prawn farming operation faced a multitude of challenges stemming from the manual data management process:

  1. Data Entry Complexity: Managing a prawn farm involves collecting a wide range of data, including water temperature, pH levels, oxygen levels, prawn size, feeding schedules, and mortality rates. This extensive dataset made the manual data entry process highly complex and prone to errors.
  2. Inefficiency and Time Consumption: Technicians had to spend a significant amount of time entering data They first recorded it on pen and paper. At the end of the day, they did all the entries together which hindered their ability to focus on other critical tasks, such as monitoring prawn health and adjusting environmental conditions.
  3. Data Integrity Issues: Manual data entry introduced the risk of data discrepancies, missing entries, or inaccuracies due to human error. Ensuring data integrity was a constant concern.
  4. Data Accessibility: The reliance on laptops or desktop computers meant that data entry could only occur in specific locations, limiting the farm's ability to capture real-time data across various farm areas.
  5. Communication Barriers: The lack of real-time data accessibility also hindered effective communication between technicians and managers. Timely decision-making was impeded by the delay in data sharing and analysis.
  6. Limited Scalability: As the prawn farm aimed to expand its operations, the manual data entry process became increasingly cumbersome and less scalable. Adding more technicians and prawn ponds exacerbated the inefficiencies.
  7. Compliance and Auditing: Meeting regulatory requirements and providing accurate records for audits and inspections posed a significant challenge with manual data entry, as there was no easy way to ensure data consistency and reliability.

The prawn farm urgently needed a solution that eliminated these challenges and provided a seamless and automated process for data collection, management, and analysis. Canonic's intervention was crucial in addressing these multifaceted issues and driving efficiency and productivity within the prawn farming operation.

Canonic's Solution

Canonic recognized the challenges faced by the prawn farming industry and developed a tailored, no-code solution to address these issues. The solution consisted of two modules designed to meet the specific needs of technicians and managers:

Data Entry Module for Technicians

Canonic created a user-friendly mobile application that allowed technicians to enter prawn-related data directly into the system. Technicians could input information such as prawn weight, growth milestones, water quality parameters, and feeding schedules on their smartphones or tablets.

This module eliminated the need for laptops or desktop computers, making data entry more convenient and accessible.

Management and Analytics Module for Managers

Canonic's platform also provided a dedicated module for managers and decision-makers. This module allowed them to access and analyze the data collected by technicians in real-time.

Managers could monitor prawn growth trends, track key performance indicators, and make informed decisions based on the data presented through intuitive dashboards and reports. This enhanced visibility and data-driven decision-making were pivotal in optimizing farm operations.

Benefits of Canonic's Automation

The implementation of Canonic's automation solution brought several significant benefits to the prawn farming operation:

  1. Efficiency: Data entry became faster and more accurate, as technicians could input information on-site using their mobile devices, reducing the risk of transcription errors.
  2. Real-Time Insights: Managers gained access to real-time data, enabling them to make timely decisions to improve prawn farm productivity and profitability.
  3. Cost Reduction: The farm no longer requires purchasing and maintaining multiple laptops, reducing operational costs.
  4. Scalability: As the prawn farm expanded, the Canonic solution could easily scale to accommodate additional technicians and data points.
  5. Improved Quality Control: The ability to monitor water quality parameters in real time allowed for proactive intervention to maintain optimal conditions for prawn growth.

Canonic's no-code automation solution revolutionized prawn farming operations by simplifying data management and automation processes.

The transition from manual data entry using Google Sheets to a mobile-friendly, real-time data collection and analytics platform significantly improved efficiency, data accuracy, and decision-making for the prawn farm. As a result, the farm experienced increased productivity, reduced operational costs, and greater overall success in the aquaculture industry.

Canonic's solution not only solved the initial problem of tedious data entry but also paved the way for future growth and sustainability in prawn farming.
