The Tanalink Advantage

Ensure a Fair Workplace

With Tanalink, planters are able to monitor each worker throughout their workday, how many plants they have harvested, and which areas they have covered. This allows planters to compensate workers more fairly, incentivize them to harvest hard to reach areas, and reward workers for work well done, ensuring more equitable workplaces and loyal workers.


With TanaLink, each worker on the plantation is device enabled, which means planters can see the progress of harvesting roles accounted for during each phase and can track the crop through the plantation harvesting cycle.

Environmental Accountability

TanaLink gives planters the data they need to run more efficient plantations, reduce amount of resources used, and improve business operations. This results in less impact on the environment. Additionally, by helping planters detect wildlife presence, TanaLink contributes to animal conservation and can support plantations with wildlife management plans.
