Oyster Clouds setup process is designed to be quick, easy and flexible. We offer three setup options the first and most commonly selected involves us organizing a time to come out on your farm and map your leases and do a complete stock take if required. This processes generally takes 2 to 3 days depending on farm size and includes on site training in the use of all features.
The second option is a phone/email setup where the farmer maps out all there leases on paper and emails that to us, we then set the account up based on this information and provide online and over the phone training and support.
The Third option is a self setup option. We provide online training and phone support but the farmer builds all the leases and inputs stock into the system.
