This strategic acquisition marks a significant milestone in Halo's mission to enhance the experience of dairy farmers and milk producers throughout New Zealand. With a strong legacy of service and excellence in the industry, Vat-Man users will be transitioned onto the Halo platform going live from February 1, 2024.

"The team is thrilled about this expansion and the exciting journey that lies ahead for Halo and our new users. Our goal has always been to provide the best possible monitoring solutions to our valued customers. With the acquisition of Vat-Man, we're extending our customer base, and providing them with additional monitoring options and opportunities across their farm. Innovatively, Halo stands out by providing comprehensive solutions such as water and silo monitoring, as well as effluent management. We look forward to welcoming Vat-Man users to Halo."

DTS's immediate focus is to ensure the Vat-Man customer transition to Halo happens seamlessly. DTS and Halo are collaborating closely to ensure this happens. 

“The sale of DTS’s monitoring business provides a great opportunity for Vat-Man customers. Halo's expertise in agricultural monitoring will allow Vat-Man users to access additional integrated monitoring solutions. The decision to sell the monitoring business is aligned to our strategic direction of focusing on our core DNA of refrigeration services, vats, and drafting gates. We have some exciting projects in the pipeline that will not only benefit the dairy industry but also the wider food and drinks sectors.”

As part of the transition, Vat-Man users will continue to access their DTS dashboard and support team until January 31, 2024, ensuring a smooth and secure transition process.

Additionally, Halo has set up a user-friendly landing page for Vat-Man users, providing all the necessary information, resources, and training materials to help users get acquainted with the Halo Dashboard and its features.
