We have developed software products to cater to animal activity centers, following a basic principle that the animal record should be entered once at the field level whereas the data access should be available to all the stakeholders from anywhere all the time. Another long-term objective was that at the highest administrative hierarchy province or national level animal database and animal health information system should be possible.
