Enhanced Features Coming to eNVD App and Web


  • New features for the eNVD system and Livestock Consignments App will be launched in March 2024, enhancing functionality for a wider range of users in the red meat supply chain.
  • The updates include expanded access for various stakeholders, the ability to add attachments and comments to consignments, daily alerts for receivers, and the option to split consignments among multiple buyers.

In March 2024, the eNVD web-based system and Livestock Consignments App will receive significant updates to improve access and functionality for users across the red meat supply chain. These enhancements are designed to streamline operations and increase efficiency for all stakeholders involved.

For the first time, access to the web-based eNVD system will be extended beyond producers to include transporters, agents, saleyards, police, authorised officers, state departments, on-plant vets, and other buyers and receivers. This expansion aims to facilitate a more integrated and cooperative approach to livestock consignments. Previously, these stakeholders could only access the system via the mobile app.

The update introduces the capability for producers to attach a variety of declarations to their consignments. These attachments will be visible to anyone with permission to view the consignment on either the eNVD web platform or app, ensuring transparency and compliance throughout the supply chain.

Additionally, a new feature allows authenticated viewers, such as receivers and transporters, to leave comments on consignments. This facilitates better communication and coordination among all parties involved. To keep stakeholders informed, the eNVD system will now send daily email alerts to consignment receivers, notifying them of any livestock arriving that day or consigned in the previous 24 hours.

Another significant improvement is the ability to split a single consignment among multiple buyers. This feature is particularly useful for saleyards and agents, allowing them to allocate stock to individual buyers efficiently.

Special access has also been granted to transporters, enabling them to edit the transport section of a consignment by adding other drivers. This flexibility ensures that all relevant information is up-to-date and accurate.

Users are encouraged to download the latest version of the app and enable auto-updates to take advantage of these new features as soon as they become available.

In the meantime, the eNVD team has provided tips to maximise the app’s utility, including sharing consignments offline by scanning the QR code, using the share option to forward consignments via SMS or email, and ensuring receivers are prepared to accept paperless consignments.

These updates to the eNVD system and Livestock Consignments App represent a significant step forward in enhancing the efficiency and transparency of livestock consignments within the red meat supply chain.
