Technology Solutions

Australian livestock saleyards operate within a complex economic, environmental and regulatory framework. Innovation is crucial to the future success of saleyards and Outcross Systems believes technology is the key to innovation.

Outcross Systems provides the portfolio of Livestock Exchange and Stockyard software products to over 120 saleyards across Australia.

Outcross Systems solutions are developed on a industry standards basis. We listen to customers and study best practice in livestock management technology from around the world. We combine the skills of experts across the industry, thought-leaders in management practice and our local, in-house development team.

What We Do

Working across sectors means Outcross Systems clients benefit from the continuous quality improvement in sale operation, and innovations are shared across sites.

Outcross Systems draws on the synergies between it’s strategic consulting, practical sales operations, and cutting edge technology. Each informs the other, and improvements are shared and implemented on a weekly basis. It’s the TEAM principle: Together, everyone achieves more.

Synergy happens because we all understand the overall objective.  Our people are personally committed to keep improving what we do. We leverage technology at every level. And we love what we do.

It also means that clients benefit from working with a holistic system. With Outcross Systems, the buck stops here. When issues arise, we can solve them with one phone call. We’re committed to resolving issues, not pointing fingers.

Drafting

NVD entry is completed as stock arrive, enabling the vendor lots to be entered and balanced at the draft. Early balancing enables agents to balance their run up to 14 hours earlier. Outcross Systems tablet and smart phone software allows NLIS tags to be scanned early and moved with a lot as stock are shuffled in the run.

Scanning

Outcross Systems mobile device options have revolutionised NLIS compliance in sheep and cattle saleyards providing major efficiency gains.

Weighing

Weighing speeds improve as sale data is already entered and checked before cattle reach the scales. E-clerking reduce delays by allowing a choice of weighing order. Lot recognition enables out-of-order weighing and therefore improved weighing throughput.

Sale Balancing

Rapid data dissemination means agents, vendors and buyers can resolve any paperwork discrepancies and balance the sale before they leave for the day. E-Clerking allows buyers to sign off immediately when they have completed buying stock.
