In addition to further promoting, through the use of ICT, more efficient and stable agricultural production, these additions and enhancements enable the delivery of a full lineup of services to support everything from operational management, production and processing to sales. While listening to the front-line needs of agricultural producers, Fujitsu will continue to expand and enhance its services, thereby utilizing ICT to ensure plentiful food supplies in the future.
Since announcing its Akisai cloud in July 2012, Fujitsu has put together a collection of services for open-air farming, greenhouse cultivation, and animal husbandry, leveraging data to drive improvements in agricultural management. While expanding the scope of ICT usage to small-scale farms, the new additions and enhancements announced today aim to leverage data to optimize cultivation schedules according to each agricultural product, region, and brand for use by agricultural producers, local governments, distributors, processors, and wholesalers. By enhancing its lineup of Akisai cloud services and packaging them with services for accounting systems, Fujitsu will continue its contributions to raising profitability and efficiency of enterprise-style agricultural management.

By bringing together different types of data – environmental data such heat and humidity, and data on plant growth and quality – required for cultivation of the desired agricultural product, an optimal cultivation schedule is derived for each type of product, region, and brand. By creating individualized cultivation schedules for producers, local governments, distributors, processors, and wholesalers in accordance with the objectives of stable production, higher quality, and brand development, this service can support unprecedented breakthroughs in agricultural production.
This entry-level service is based on the Agricultural Production Management SaaS solution and is intended for small-scale family farms. This service dramatically enhances agricultural management through the analysis of aggregate costs, work performance and other inputted data. Using smartphones, producers need only input the bare minimum required for production (daily work journals/logs, pesticide spray counts, timeframes of pest outbreaks from the previous year, etc.). It employs an input interface that is easy to understand even for users who are not acquainted with using ICT, and, given its affordable price it can be quickly deployed by even small-scale family farms.
This solution provides total support for agriculture companies or food manufacturers who source agricultural products from producers and then sell them fresh or as processed products. By having a real-time grasp of the inventory status, from receipt to shipping, the solution enables optimal sales management. In addition, the solution can share detailed account receivable/account payable information with accounting systems such as Agriculture Accounting SaaS powered by GLOVIA smart Kirara.
This solution is intended for agriculture companies that are looking to perform advanced business management through features that support quarterly earnings reporting and diversified businesses other than agriculture, among other features. In addition to the functionality available in Business Management SaaS, the new solution is based on the know-how of Fujitsu's accounting operations application GLOVIA smart Kirara Accounting. With an established track record, this feature delivers accounting services that come with standard support for account classifications employed in agriculture (fertilizer expenses, heavy machinery expenses, fuel expenses, etc.).
