Custard Apple Dispatch System 2 – CADS 2 (CU15000)
What was it all about?
This project was responsible for continuing the administration and upgrading of the Custard Apple Dispatch System (CADS) between early 2016 and early 2019.
The system was designed to allow registered growers to generate and transmit dispatch advices electronically, and wholesalers and exporters to enter and transmit payback prices electronically, while also providing reporting at grower and industry levels.
CADS upgrading under the project included technological changes to make it easier and more efficient for growers using Apple computers to use the system, and to allow CADS to be used on tablet devices. Changes also allowed for aggregated and real-time reporting of crop flow (dispatch quantities) and crop value (payback prices).
The use of CADS was intended to facilitate improved and more efficient business processes for industry, by allowing growers and other users to make more objective business decisions on farm and along the value chain.
This project was a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Custard Apple Fund
