App ushers in new era for growers

Wednesday, 07 August 2019

Queensland cane growers can now easily manage their sugar pricing from the palm of their hand through a new industry-first app created by QSL.
 
The QSL App has been designed to give the State's cane farmers simple and secure mobile access to global sugar market information and QSL pricing services, as well as a host of handy cane and sugar conversion tools.
 
QSL Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Greg Beashel said the app was designed to make life easier for growers as they juggled the equally pressing priorities of running a farm and optimising their sugar returns.
 
“Time is critical when it comes to sugar market movements, but no-one wants to be chained to a desk watching the market all day,” Mr Beashel said.
 
“The QSL App provides a one-stop-shop where growers can easily monitor the market and their pricing while they’re out in the field and act quickly to make or change pricing when it suits them, rather than waiting until they get home at the end of a long day to log on and tackle the pricing jobs.”
 
The QSL App is free and available for both Apple and Android phones. Just search for ‘QSL App’ in either the App Store or Google Play store.
