"THIS IS A GREAT INNOVATION FOR THE INDUSTRY."- DAIRY AUSTRALIA COUNCIL
Imagine a farm hand out on site at a pumping station and he cannot get the pump to start because he cannot remember the sequence. What can he do?
He could just “wing it”,
He could call on the mobile with a voice and try to explain it to the boss,
he can eHat it and have the answer in half the time it would take to explain it with words and have the peace of mind to know he is not going to make a mistake.
The Savings Proposition
Let’s estimate that on average a farm worker will talk to his boss and other experts for 5 hours per week. We estimate that there are 200,000 farm worker in Australia at the moment. This means there could be about 1 Million hours per week spent on this activity or 52 Million hours per year.
If we use an arbitrary figure of $25 per hour as wages then the total wages cost for Australia is a staggering $1.3 Billion per year.
If we consider that same workforce had eHat for the communications, a saving of $650 Million is made per year due to the 50% less time it takes to communicate a situation.
That’s a saving of 26 Million hours per year or 2.5 hours per worker per week.
