Case study: Farmbot

Winning a grant and business continuity planning

Farmbot engaged gemaker to prepare their successful submission for an Accelerating Commercialisation grant of $598K from the Department of Industry, Science and Technology – to develop their IoT monitoring and management products for agricultural applications. 

To attract further investment, Farmbot needed to demonstrate sound risk management by developing a business continuity plan. To assist, gemaker: 

  • mapped the workflow of their operational processes including supply, production, sales, customer service, order management and  fulfillment, customer faults, back office operations, etc
  • identified interdepartmental dependencies, IT system dependencies and related inefficiencies, risks and opportunities  
  • documented operational processes step-by-step
  • provided a template for supply chain analysis, to enable Farmbot to identify the risk and impact of any failure to supply
  • delivered a draft business continuity plan.
