The domain of iGus

IGus manages all facets of seed production and manufacturing. This ranges from planting seeds to receiving them in the seed station. Then this continues until the certification of the seeds by the official control bodies (SOC for France), and then until the shipment of the bags of seeds obtained. What makes iGus unique is its strong adaptability to the management rules of the seed station or to those of the breeder. IGus manages all the activity of the seed station: the organization of the production in relation with the contract givers and the propagators, the organization of the manufacturing processes, the follow-up of the operations as well as the follow-up of the seed quality throughout the process.

IGus can manage multiple manufacturing sites simultaneously. It centralizes the information in a single site. This allows reporting or interfaces with other systems. Thus, with iGus, you have total visibility on your stocks, quantitatively and qualitatively.

In iGus, quality determines seed availability: seeds can be processed only if they meet the breeder's specifications. Thus, you avoid errors and can justify traceability at any time, and in a few seconds.

Finally iGus puts at your disposal a Business Objects universe. Thus, you can access all the data collected, via a data center, in a non-computer language.

The place of iGus in the information system

IGus targets the operation of the factory. It is not intended to replace software well suited to conventional functions (sales management or accounting) or highly technical functions (management of machines and physical organs of the seed station).

However, iGus is designed to work synergistically in such an environment through proven data exchange mechanisms.
