New to the UK – GrasPro: GrasPro is a simple pitch management tool that gives users the ability to record pitch data, generate visual reports and gain a greater depth of understanding about their pitches.
During the development of GrasPro, making it a time effective, accessible tool for groundsmen was vital. The task of keeping daily spreadsheets or paper notes has been replaced by an online system that can be accessed anywhere and used by multiple team members, with administration access to pitches at the discretion of the primary account holder. Ensuring your pitch information remains your own is an essential aspect of GrasPro, and with no third-party involvement, your data is never shared.
With GrasPro, simplicity is key. Users can track their daily activities such as mowing, fertilising, aeration and marking as well as pitch usage in a fast and convenient way. All registered activities are then summarised and visually presented with statistical reports available for N-P-K calculations, water usage, playing hours and more.
Photographs and comments can be attached to work logs, so any out of the ordinary conditions, like grass disease, can be tracked visually as well as statistically. Sophisticated weather reports at three-hour intervals join all of this to give a full picture of how pitches are performing in certain conditions.
By using this information, users can generate visual reports that highlight how the usage of pitches and maintenance practices are impacting the turf. In turn, this allows groundsmen to collate information for budget projections and accurately forecast the amount of paint, fertiliser and staff-hours they need.
The result of being able to harness all of this information is a deeper understanding of your surfaces, allowing for increased pitch usage and detailed information for future planning. Already, groundsmen, consultants and football governing bodies around the world have benefitted from using the system on individual pitches and in a tournament scenario.
