You do the milk, we'll do the data.

Halo has acquired the Vat-Man milk monitoring service previously provided by DTS. Our longstanding relationship with DTS has paved the way for this exciting transition, and we are committed to ensuring a seamless experience for you.

Who is Halo, and what is our background in providing milk monitoring services?

Halo, founded in 2002 and proudly based in the Waikato region, played a pivotal role as one of the service providers for Fonterra's MVM rollout. Presently, we extend our support to numerous Fonterra suppliers across the country. A significant advantage of Halo lies in our adaptability, allowing users to scale up their systems to match their evolving on-farm needs. Our extensive suite of monitoring tools covers every aspect of your farm's operations. Click here to view our agri solutions.

What is happening with my current Vat-Man service now that Halo has acquired it?

Halo has acquired the Vat-Man milk monitoring service previously provided by DTS. You will maintain uninterrupted access to your Vat-Man dashboard and the DTS support team until January 31, 2024.

When is the official date of the transition to Halo's service?

Effective February 1, 2024, you will access your milk data through the Halo Dashboard by using your existing DTS username and password. You will also access Halo Support from this date onward.

Will there be any changes to the pricing or subscription structure after the transition to Halo?

No, there will be no changes to the pricing or subscription structure after the transition to Halo. Pricing and billing for your milk monitoring service will continue to be managed by Fonterra as per normal.

Do I need to make any changes or upgrades to my MVM hardware when transitioning to Halo?

No. Throughout the transition process, all operational hardware will continue to work seamlessly. We are simply transferring the data stream to the Halo Dashboard. You'll be contacted by a Halo representative to arrange a site visit to upgrade your MVM hardware.

Are there any fees or costs associated with the MVM hardware replacement?

No, there are no costs with the MVM hardware replacement.

What milk data will be available upon transitioning to Halo?

Your milk data will be accessed and displayed on the Halo Dashboard starting Thursday, February 1. Initially, there may be a potential gap of up to a week in historical data, which we are actively working on backfilling over the next few weeks. Rest assured that once this process is completed, you will have access to your MVM data from late December 2023.

How will I access customer support during the transition?

You will access DTS support until January 31, 2024. Effective February 1, 2024, Halo Support will be your first point of contact for support and assistance. View the Halo Support page here.

Is there a training or onboarding program to help me get acquainted with the Halo Dashboard and its features?

We have created this dedicated landing page to help you get acquainted with the Halo Dashboard and its features. This landing page will be continually updated with how-to guides and instructional videos to provide you with comprehensive training and onboarding resources. You can visit this page to access all the information you need to make the most of the Halo Dashboard and ensure a smooth transition.

Will there be any downtime during the transition?

We understand the importance of uninterrupted service, and we have taken measures to ensure that your milk monitoring data will continue to work with minimal disruptions during the transition to Halo.

Will the DTS MVMS eventually be replaced on my farm?

Yes. Beginning in late August 2024, New Zealand's 3G network will be phased out, rendering the existing DTS hardware obsolete. To maintain uninterrupted and reliable connectivity, Halo will gradually replace this hardware with our advanced 4G technology. The hardware replacement process will unfold gradually between February and August 2024.
