A drone flies across the fields to inspect the condition of the soil. Meanwhile, there’s an incoming alert saying it’s time to milk the cows. The drone starts its descent; the farmer starts his rounds. This may sound like a pie in the sky to some people, but to farmers that are associated with the Research Center of the Wageningen University, it’s just another day.
The Wageningen University and Research Center (WUR) is hailed at home and abroad. Year after year, the For Quality of Life institution is voted the best Dutch University, while its researchers and students travel the world contributing to breakthrough studies in the field of engineering and health. The WUR owes a greater part of its international success to the combination of science and IT, two components that are inseparably linked in Wageningen. Thanks to this two-unit, the university has gained a competitive edge over the other players in the field, resulting in an outstanding position in the world of research and innovation. It was only a matter of time before the WUR took a next step, and called in the Yenlo Gurus to implement a complete solution for the supply chain management of their corporate systems.
