Baletwine Site & Applications

Baletwine Site & Applications

Baletwine NZ brings your agribusiness a selection of products to make you more productive and more profitable. 

Whether you're a sheep farmer, your cows have mastitis, or you have to measure your key performing areas, you'll love what Baletwine has to offer. 

What did Baletwine require from us?

Baletwine approached us wanting to develop a major set of products for them. They wanted a site and 3 applications developed.

The idea was to use the site as a platform to house all the applications they were wanting developed, which was the main focus for them.

How did we accomplish this and what were the results?


baletwinesite2Trio Technology built the marketing website for Baletwine in Joomla using the Joomlart theme JA Cloris.

The website is a simple one page website as it is mainly a platform for all the apps being developed to be under with all the information into just a couple of pages.

The site covers the apps, sample images, contacts, downloads and other essential information.




baletwinefarmbossThis is a mobile application developed using Phone Gap and HTML5 and is freely available to the website users, looking for agricultural tools on hand.

We designed FarmBoss for Baletwine's vision for a tool to make calculations and decisions for the everyday farmer.

The App uses effective, easy to use tables and charts with the use of JavaScript frameworks to create a user interface that needs no explanation.

FarmBoss contains many packs which can be emailed as csv files. This means that they’re ideal for communicating with staff, consultants, absent shareholders or with your own PC for further evaluation when it suits.


farmhelpCaptureThe FarmHelp app is a tutorial app designed to help the small/lifestyle farmer cope with the farm chores and functions needed to run a modern and busy farm. From the website;

"Farmhelp is a great resource for information on farming and livestock tasks, using methods that have been tried and tested over 40 years – right on your Android mobile phone and at your fingertips. Whether you're an experienced farmer or starting out with a smallholding, Farmhelp can save you time, money, and get you back to doing what you do best – tending your land, livestock, and allowing your staff to work quickly and safely unsupervised."

We built the back-end functionality for entering and storing the content and image. We also built the XML Parser for moving content from a back-end server to a device. The Android only application was built by Pixel This with Graphic Design by Marshall Creative.


baletwinechartitBaletwine wanted to create a mobile application for technologically advanced farmers to use on the go. The result was an extensive application which provides tools to measure and report on all aspects of the farming business.

The application was developed using a combination of a mobile JavaScript library called Phone Gap, as well as HTML5 and CSS.

Phone Gap is a platform for building native mobile applications using HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. This makes development more effective and efficient for the client.

The application was designed with multiple platforms in mind. Through rigorous testing, the application is fully responsive to all mobile and tablet devices. This means you don’t have to worry about having difficulty with navigation and usability no matter what device you decide to use.

Chart-it was designed to be used independent of WiFi and phone signal for those times you are far away from civilization.

Whether you want to track sales and expenses, measure differences between products, or track the productivity of a work team. Then Chart-it will become a valuable tool in your business management toolbox.
