FarmLogix, Evanston, Ill., launched Open Fields, a software platform that allows foodservice operations at colleges, schools, hospitals, sports and leisure facilities and businesses of all kinds to more easily source and report on sustainable ingredients and purchases.

Open Fields enables institutions to search, save and build programs based on custom definitions and purchasing needs. Dashboards allow users to run custom analytics, while national entities can run metrics on their own sustainability initiatives by location, product, spend, attribute, farm/vendor, miles to location and distributor.

The dashboards enable on-site managers and corporate teams to gain insight into a range of sustainability initiatives by tracking progress and generating reports.
