Smallholder data management for agribusiness
Smallholdr is an efficient and cost-effective way to capture and manage data on smallholder farmers, outgrower schemes and agricultural business processes using our mobile app and cloud-based platform.
Our approach is to work closely with our clients to develop bespoke versions of our system which fully meet their needs – from input retailers to honey processors or seed multipliers. We closely support implementation to deliver ‘digital change management’ and make sure all the benefits of our systems are realised.
Real-time information reduces costs and increases accuracy of production or sales planning
Organisations can build closer relationships and tailor extension advice to individual farmers
Detailed tracked records of smallholder interventions provides highly informative M&E data
Commercial & Development Advantages
Smallholdr provides opportunities for cost efficiencies and operational innovations for private sector, NGO and development project clients, as well as smallholder farmers with whom they work
Smallholdr improves business performance by reducing costs and enabling better decision-making and planning. Our software enables efficient management of field workers so that extension work can be directed as required. Real-time data saves time and money for procurement and logistics planning.
It helps agribusinesses to engage profitably with smallholder farmers, and NGOs to deliver cost effective agronomic support.
Smallholdr increases opportunities for farmers to improve yields and incomes and to gain more secure access to markets.
It can provide smallholders with credit histories for the first time, and allow them to access finance for their businesses

Who can benefit from Smallholdr’s digital tools?
Businesses selling to smallholders
Smallholdr enables retailers to capture consumer data cost-effectively, build a history of buying behaviour by linking to point of sale records, and use targeted campaigns to market products. Powerful real-time reporting tools enable better-informed decisions.
Businesses buying from smallholders
Smallholdr provides the ability to capture information on smallholder suppliers, communicate with them, train them and organise procurement of crops cost effectively. Our system enables managers to task their field workers remotely and monitor their activities and performance in real-time.
NGOs / businesses using extension services
Smallholdr transforms extension by using smallholder information to tailor agronomic advice to individual farmer needs. Managers can use Smallholdr's sophisticated modules for managing extension teams and designing surveys.
Smallholdr is significantly better than standard electronic survey tools since information on individuals can be updated and tracked, saving time and resources over the ‘spreadsheet approach’. Our software is ideally suited to collecting and managing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) data.
