Leveraging Vistex Agribusiness Technology and know-how to support small and medium sized farms.

Vistex GO

Delivering Solutions for Struggling Farmers

Vistex GO is a social impact program focused on delivering solutions for struggling farmers in the developing world. Years of work with farming communities in Colombia have revealed a specific need that Vistex was well positioned to address: the need for real-time data collection from the field.

The project is part of the Vistex Endeavor program – a global effort to give back to communities struggling to overcome the barriers to success. Working directly with farmers, agricultural associations, government entities, and overseeing years of training and testing, we have created a free solution designed to be both easy to use and effective in delivering success for our partners.

Vistex GO

Reach Bigger and More Profitable Markets

Working with our software developers, our user experience experts, and our on-the-ground Agri team, we have developed a mobile app designed to quickly and easily collect data required to meet good global agricultural practice standards. The goal is to allow farmers to reach bigger, more profitable markets and to improve standards of living for these farming communities.

As we see continued success in our pilot projects in Colombia, we will begin offering the solution in other countries with a similar demand for quality record keeping and global certification and compliance. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please fill out the form on the contact tab.

Vistex GO is an on-going project, learning from each cohort, working with industry leaders, and seeking opportunities to deliver the solution to new communities across the world.
