Glas Data is an agricultural technology company with one key aim; to unite the technological aspects of food production for the benefit of the entire sector and ultimately, the end consumer.
Glas Data’s core product, GlasCore, offers an easy-to-use, cloud-based, agricultural management and decision support smart farming platform that uniquely enables users to collect their own
precision farm data, from any source, put it into one place, and provide them with intuitive aggregation and visualisation tools to improve their productivity and sustainability.
Glas Data’s vision is to empower farmers and increase supply chain efficiency overall by decreasing complexity along the value chain. This will allow data to be exploited to its fullest potential by highlighting opportunities to increase growth and productivity. The ten year aim is to penetrate all levels of the agricultural supply chain from farms to consumers, bringing traceability and unparalleled analysis to the sector. We are excited to bring technologies such as AI and machine learning to bear in solving some of agriculture’s most pressing problems, and are already working with the world’s most prestigious agricultural research institution on developing predictive algorithms for crop yields. This technology can be highly valuable to financial sectors, such as pre-harvest funding, insurance and commodities trading (quantitive models) and we are already exploring potential in these areas.
Ultimately we are driven to simplify the world of precision farming and unlock the value of precision data, saving our users time and money whilst improving efficiency and yields.
We aim to be an equal opportunities employer and we are determined to ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, age, disability, religion,
belief, sexual orientation, marital status, or race, or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justifiable.
