Partners In Grain received a TravelSMART grant of $4,200 to assist with the introduction of Webinar software.
The grant was used to purchase and install the software, and to provide training and information to staff.
Installation of this system alone has meant that three of the four meetings held annually by Partners in Grain are now able to be held on line. This has already saved over 11,000 kilometres of car travel (with an estimated 8,454 car kilometres being saved each year).
The project has been so successful that other organisations with a wide geographic spread, (including Precision Agriculture Australia from Sydney and Riverine Plains Farming Systems from Victoria), have contacted the project coordinator with a view to also installing Webinar software in their organisations.
