Maximizing Your Herd's Potential with CHAPS
Codelation was approached by North Dakota State University's Extension Service to update their CHAPS software, a herd management tool for beef cattle producers. The software was designed to provide detailed reports on individual animals' performance and pedigree, enabling producers to make informed decisions about their breeding and management strategies. CHAPS also included tools such as a breeding calculator and a feed intake calculator to optimize producers' programs.
Codelation's team of developers worked on translating the existing calculations into a modern and updated system. We aimed to produce compelling and effective reports with updated visuals to deliver an exceptional user experience. The new system provided detailed reports on individual animals with updated visuals and charts, making it easier for producers to make informed decisions. Our team of dedicated developers went above and beyond to ensure that the CHAPS software was brought up to modern standards, delivering an exceptional user experience. We meticulously researched and translated the existing calculations to a current and updated system, providing beef cattle producers with herd management software that is both effective and visually appealing.
As of today, CHAPS is a powerful and flexible tool that can help beef cattle producers manage their herds more effectively. Whether you're a small-scale producer or a large commercial operation, CHAPS can provide you with the information and tools you need to make informed decisions about your breeding and management strategies and ultimately improve the performance and profitability of your herd.
Codelation was able to help develop CHAPS Online, which we have released to the public. We had worked on developing CHAPS to an online for years but had not succeeded. Without Codelation, we would not have achieved this goal.
