LintraMax Launches QuartoConnect App to Help Modernize Oil Palm Plantations

Apr 5, 2018:

LintraMax (M) Sdn. Bhd., a provider of digital plantation management solutions today launched QuartoConnect, a new application to help oil palm planters streamline work processes at their plantations. The new application, which runs on mobile devices functions as a tool for planters to digitally record data of activities on the field and have them stored in a cloud-based system. This makes it easier for managers at the main office to access field data quickly and at any time. Moreover, with QuartoConnect planters no longer need to rely on paper-based log books or other manual methods. QuartoConnect is now available for oil palm plantations in Malaysia and Indonesia.

Among key features of QuartoConnect are:
  • Worker Attendance: QuartoConnect is integrated with a biometric device to read fingerprints. This allows workers’ attendance to be recorded and verified quickly.
  • Crop Harvesting: Recording of crop production with GPS location tagging improves traceability and enhance crop quality monitoring.
  • Crop Evacuation: Monitors crop evacuation efficiency to improve crop freshness and reduce crop backlogs and losses. An important factor affecting oil extraction rate (OER).
QuartoConnect comes as a new module of Quarto, which is LintraMax’s award-winning (MSC Malaysia APICTA Merit Award 2017) cloud-based plantation management system, but it can also be deployed independently or as a standalone application.


With QuartoConnect, users can record data even when the application is offline in plantation areas where there is no Internet connection. Once it is connected to the Internet, all data will be uploaded to its cloud-based central system.

For plantation companies, having proper recording of data on the field is crucial for their business. In many cases, planters are still stuck with using conventional methods including paper-based log books. Not only are these not easy to manage but they also make reporting of field data to main office a long process.

Mr. Khor Kheng Khoon, founder and managing director of LintraMax said LintraMax’s goal is to digitize agricultural practices.
