How Ortolanda benefits from Priva Operator

Ortolanda, a European year-round radish producer, is currently reaping the benefits of using Priva Operator for remote management of its greenhouse processes. “It is user-friendly and clearly designed. It shows you your crop’s main processes at a glance.” Melchior Coolbergen, co-owner of the company, shares his experience with the online application, which is part of the Priva Connected subscription.

Always at your fingertips
The modern radish producer has been using Priva Connext to automate climate and irrigation for quite some years now. Melchior Coolbergen decided to start using Priva Operator, the application that enables you to monitor and manage your greenhouse remotely, in early 2022. The main reason behind this decision was the fact that he needed to have constant access to the processes in the greenhouse. “Accessibility is extremely important for me. With Operator, I can keep an eye on what is happening in the greenhouse at all times, even when I’m somewhere else – at home, for example. But it is also very useful when I am in the greenhouse as it enables me to make any necessary adjustments quickly and easily.”

Focus on the key processes
He also rates the personalization options in the app very highly. Melchior: “Being able to create personal dashboards is really useful. You can set them up exactly how you want them and put focus on the key processes. Then you can see at a glance whether everything is running smoothly.”

Data-rich charts
Operator allows you to select and combine different measurements into one chart – a handy way to gain new insights. Melchior: “I often use charts to view historic data. For example, I might look at a particular period in the past to check whether there were any specific changes in the temperature.”

Stay informed of all your active and historical alarms with Notification Center
Melchior also likes to use the Notification Center app, which is part of Priva Connected. “If there is a fault in a system, I immediately get a notification on my phone telling me about the fault. In the past, I would get a phone call and had to go and see what the problem was. It is much easier for me now and saves a lot of time.”
