The system has continuously been developing to address the needs of all partners interested in controlling Animal Identification, Traceability, Health, including Government (or department responsible for a specific area), farm producer associations and respective farms.
In accordance with international legislation
Created to manage and control not one but dozens, hundreds or thousands of farms on a regional, national, continental or global scale, PISA responds to all demands made by the European Community and international organisations belonging to the sector and complies with the good practices and objectives defined by the IEO – International Epizooty Organisation, that is, “to improve animal health and well-being worldwide regardless of the culture and economic situation of member-countries”.
PISA is already considered an important tool for animal, public and economic health services related to this activity. Easy to use, handle, access and update, the system combines data such as the identity, origin and transfer of animals with sanitary information as well as diagnostic and prophylactic measures applied and to be used in the future. Therefore, all animals of veterinary interest are included in a single, unlimited database, which covers decision-making and resource and capital management by entities responsible for animal health management in the country covered by the system.
Designed for an easy implementation
PISA.net was designed to be easily adapted and implemented to any territory.
Despite the complexity of its database, PISA.net does not require expensive hardware and it is able to work even in the most remote territories. If internet access is available, it can work online. Otherwise, the Intelligent Data Propagation System (SPD) will synchronize whenever a communication channel is available.
It includes the whole hierarchy of veterinary administrators, on-site veterinary surgeons and laboratories responsible for analyzing animal samples collected.
The System works online, from any PC connected to the central database, or offline, through a local database intelligently synchronized with the central database, which responds to the availability of a communication channel. Since 2004 there is also a full web version.
PISA is a flexible system that can be adjusted to the specific requirements of each country, regardless of its dimensions. It is a central system used for controlling Animal Health that complies with the specific regulations and requirements of each country or organization responsible for the sanitary control of farms.
It is a powerful information system specially designed to assist government entities in managing animal health on a given territory allowing easy identification, movement control for individual animals or herds, sanitary classification among other functions.
Adaptable to any technological and telecommunications structure - no powerful servers are needed, as the programme is installed on a PC that creates a local database which, in turn, communicates with the central database whenever necessary.
Unlimited with regard to the growth of the database, controlled variables, organisations and users involved in the system.
Intelligent in validating data entered and its propagation. Even with modest IT or telecommunications resources, the local database can be synchronized with the central database from any computer with PISA installed. This database may be used until a connection can be made.
Automatic Live update that keeps PISA permanently updated with information and functions entered.
PISA.mobile as the most advanced field solution, available for netbook or laptop computers, thus facilitating direct on-site data entry. It is quicker, cancels out possible human failure and enables on-the-spot action of brigades for controlling animal health on farms.
Configuration is quickly and easily adapted to the actual requirements of each country to be covered by this control system.
Thus, the system is used and handled from different regional, national, continental or global points on the animal health control network, in offices or on-site. Users are situated in different geographic locations. The system's main objective is to register, process and supply all information entered and updated by each individual or authorised organism, in accordance with their duties and permission. This is all done using a central database.
