Why should your company use OMP?

Power: The quick answer is that your whole reputation as an oil palm producer as well as your actual profit and loss profile is directly depending on your actual field activities and the power of your field control tools.

Expertise: OMP has a proven record of working installations and is frequently considered to be the ‘industry leading’ information system for site-specific agronomy based field management in oil palm estates. The software is developed and maintained by experienced experts, scientists and planters with a high and long-standing reputation in the oil palm world. We know and care about the details.

Costs and profits: OMP comes with a fair price tag and a proven quick return on your investment (RoI). We know that implementation costs for OMP are only a fraction compared to the development costs of similar modules within a specific custom made ‘integrated’ information system. OMP is also much more cost efficient than solutions developed by in-house IT teams. Using OMP to implement field improvements in critical areas can quickly improve your profits.

System integration: OMP is designed with an open data interface and can be linked directly with your other existing information systems and data sources. For instance, harvesting data may be imported from the payroll module of an existing acounting program, climate data can be imported from automatic weather stations, leaf and soil analysis results from lab reports.

OMP supports as well the export of all of its data in all standard database formats. This option is useful for scientists and technical service sections who want to use OMP data in statistical software packages like SPSS or MathStats for extended long term data analysis and specific surveys.

Quality and Sustainability: OMP keeps historic records of your field conditions, activities, inputs, impacts and performance results. This information is substantial for your ISO 9000 and 14000 data recording requirements.

I want to implement the software. What is the process?

A typical implementation process:

We install OMP within one week!

Yes, that is all the time it takes to get OMP set-up and running!

During the installation process, we will:

  • set-up OMP according to the site-specific conditions of your estate. This will be done in close cooperation with your senior field managers and/or agronomists.
  • train your OMP operators in all aspects of using OMP for data entry, data verification and error checks.
  • enter the basic block data according to the estate lay-out and a first yearly data set with all relevant agronomy data.

Within 2 to 6 month, you can enter all data for a ten year historic period.

OMP Implementation (normally 1 week) :

when we arrive in the estate, the normal installation steps are as follows:

  • Introduction of OMP and discussion of the implementation with estate managers, field managers, agronomists and data entry staff;
  • Hardware  and software checks and physical installation of the OMP software;
  • Definition/re-evaluation of unit (division) and block structures;
  • Review of the available data sets and verification of data resources;
  • Definition of site-specific setup parameters for OMP (estate and field managers attendance is required);
  • Field checks and evaluation of setup parameters;
  • Verification of estate block structures, GIS links, and set-up classifications;
  • Introduction of OMP to the data entry operators;
  • Data entry: basic estate setup; entering constant data for all blocks;
  • Data entry: completing a record set with all available data for all blocks for the latest year;
  • Data entry: adding data for previous year(s);
  • Evaluating the availability of data and identifying problem areas, like missing or unreliable data;
  • Verification and presentation of the installation to estate and field managers;
  • Discussion of follow-up support.
