A database driven software application developed to manage the farm assessments on behalf of the National Dairy Farm Assured Scheme. It handles member assessments and certification, membership bodies, and assessors and their training. Its functionality includes data recording and analysis, report generation, assessment notifications and other correspondence. Data on assessments of members is collected by a number of separate member bodies and stored in their database. The information in these databases is then replicated across the internet to the central NDFAS database which displays the certification status of members on the web site. Owing to this, the programme’s in-built security is very sophisticated so as to avoid one membership body’s sensitive information being hi-jacked or tampered with by another membership body.
