Islanders can implement a top-tier farm management software at a discounted price.

Compass Aquaculture Solutions is a local company that is looking to make its mark on the Oyster Industry. We already have many island clients that we have had success with and are looking to get on board with as many island oyster farmers as possible.  We have a system that we are very proud of and believe that every aquafarmer should consider in order to optimize their operation.

Island oyster farmers may not know it, but they have an opportunity to improve the efficiency, traceability and overall day to day activities of their aquafarms, at a discounted cost.  There is a great program that is offered by the PEI Aquaculture Alliance, the Oyster Infrastructure and Training Program (OIT), that island oyster farmers can utilize to implement Farm Management Software on their farm and receive funding for up to 50% of eligible expenditures (max of $5000).  It is important to note that this program is only available until the end of February, 2022!

This program is a great opportunity for island oyster farmers to get on board with Compass and check out our “Buoy Up” software.  Buoy up gives you the opportunity to manage your farm from your boat with our mobile application as well as from your office with the web platform.    Our software will allow you to better manage your assets, whether they be lines, cages, bags or whatever methodology your farm may use while also managing the inventory that goes along with it.  Not only will it help you better manage your operation, but will also allow you to improve your traceability through tracking batches and grades . Another key feature that our clients seem to love is the custom grid function that is available in the web portion of Buoy Up.  The custom grid is a great place to look when it comes to the data you’ve collected from your farm.  You can filter and export data as you please, which can be helpful for everything from better understanding your farm to dealing with financing or insurance.

Buoy Up was developed in 2015 and we have constantly been making improvements, optimizing our performance and listening to the industry and our clients to add any features that makes their day-to-day easier.  Our system is extremely adaptable and customizable, which allows any farm, no matter how they operate, to easily be integrated into our system.  If you have any questions about our systems, the features we touched on, or compass in general, do not hesitate to reach out to us - info@compassaq.com.  Additionally, you can find some virtual farm tutorials that go more in depth in to some of our features.  Our virtual farm series is something we try and do weekly and can be found on our social media pages.
