The requirement.
Our client Champerché is an official FoodTech500 urban vertical farming company based in France, that uses an innovative combination of permaculture & hydroponics to grow over 150 species of fruits & vegetables.
With no tech team in house, it literally started from a blank page and a simple challenge they gave us: how do you scale operations from a 50m² farm with a production capacity of 3 tons a year to a 4,500 m³ farm with a production of 3 tons a week? Our answer: software automation.
In other words, here was the mission we undertook: to build the foundations of a scalable software ecosystem that would start by ensuring complete control and automation over the fruit and vegetable life cycle, using real-time management of over 2,000+ connected sensors across multiple farms.

Solving for Sustainable Cities and Communities and more.

Every project that we take up is aligned to one or more of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

How we did it.

When you take the decision to step away from existing third-party solutions (because you realise being a tech company that they restrict your capacity to scale operationally) and intend to build a proprietary software ecosystem, founders must look at what it takes below the iceberg before even seeing the light of tangible outputs they wish to operate. Hence, our first step is always to build the foundations for a stable, flexible & scalable ecosystem, from both a strategic and technological standpoint. We do this by educating the C-levels of the company involved and here, laying the groundwork for Champerché included:

  • Creating a universal architecture & a unified implementation plan
  • Creating a unified visual identity & imagining a standardised UI/UX flow
  • Creating a set of developing & coding standards
  • Training their internal team to a method for a relevant stack identification
  • Overall implementing an agile SDLC to build an optimised ground for the future

Point 1

We created a universal architecture for scale

Point 2

We developed a set of proprietary coding standards

Point 3

We implemented a standardised UI/UX flow

The impact it had.

We thrive to help companies understand the importance of mirroring their proprietary operational process into a proprietary software ecosystem, so that the day their process evolves, their software can also evolve and contribute to optimising every aspect of their operations.

At Champerché, there was an understanding of what functionalities they wanted to see. But that was pretty much it. And yet, a functionality doesn’t make a product and a product is not a sum of functionalities. A script for the humidity level of a parcel from an IoT sensor to the database doesn’t bring any financial value as a standalone. It serves an immediate purpose for that particular function but it has no inherent value besides having certain workflows automated. Any software developer for that matter, if given enough time & information, can create a script or a function but at Champerché, we had a responsibility to imbibe the philosophy of a software ecosystem.

To bring that particular script to be part of a larger ecosystem & plan. A unified implementation plan, so that whatever technology they would be developing in the future would end up adding operational and financial value to the organisation. And this is exactly what happened! This product was the very beginning of an adventure we collectively went on, in building many products as part of a larger ecosystem. Such a wonderful collaboration.
