The awarding ceremony was held on December 10th 2014 at the ceremonial hall of Old Palace in Belgrade.
“Nowadays we cannot imagine modern agriculture production without the use of cutting-edge technologies. Since the development of agriculture business has been strategic goal of Serbia, our software is a technological tool providing assistance along that road. Whether we mean homogenous lot or distributed land in terms of location, our software can generate information on the total area of land at the disposal of Agriculture Company or Government, of the plants, seeding plans, harvest, necessary costs and expenses relating to fuel, seed and other resources. Main task of this software is to facilitate work of agriculture producers and more importantly to reduce operating costs. Savings achieved this way can be further invested in new agriculture machinery or other resources” - was emphasized by Zvezdan Žarić, Greensoft Director, who also thanked the jury of experts for this award, adding that such recognitions are always stimulating for further development and work of even better quality.
