QCONZ help develop DairyNZ Milksmart app

Date: December 2021

Dairy NZ recently released a new app called Milksmart which is an amazing product developed with the help of Roby Thomas from QCONZ. This app has been created to help farmers and consultants review a farm’s current milking performance and calculate MaxT milking times.

QCONZ boasts an impressive track record in developing and producing functional digital solutions to help farmers and suppliers get the most out of their business. This is a tool that we think should be used by all dairy farmers to boost the efficiency of their team and their herd, while saving money at the same time.

The Milksmart App can be downloaded from the App Store or Play Store by searching “Milksmart”. Simply add your farms milking data, and a personalised report is generated which can be saved, downloaded, shared and emailed.

From concept development to finished product, the app came together within the space of around two months. Roby worked closely with the Dairy NZ team to design, develop and test the app to make their vision into a reality.
