KIMITEC implements a new digital system in MAAVi Innovation Center’s Trials department


Industrial Digitization Project – Planning Area.

KIMITEC, a multinational company dedicated to the research, development and commercialization of biopesticides, pre- and probiotics, and biostimulants, has recently commissioned Planning Manufacturing to implement a new digital system in its Trials department at the MAAVi Innovation Center.

The biotech, headquartered in Almería, had already selected the same engineering company for the development of a production planning software for their factory; now, they will collaborate again in the digitization of a major strategic department for the company, the Trials lab.

With over 45 R&D&I projects in the pipeline, all of them focused on solving the main problems facing global agriculture, the Trials department of the MAAVi Innovation Center needs to be able to manage all kinds of projects with unique particularities.

By implementing a new digital system in such a strategic area, Kimitec seeks to optimize its trial protocols, easily visualize the status of every project, and facilitate the management of both purchases and workforce.

The new digital system will offer the company a key competitive advantage, since it will allow to supervise and monitor all activities within the department remotely.

After evaluating several proposals, Kimitec has chosen Planning Manufacturing because they offered “the most complete and suitable option”, according to Iván Hermoso, COO of the company.

Their experience in the field, familiarity and understanding of all Kimitec’s needs were also considered during the selection process.
