Fairport develops quality software for the agricultural and horticultural industries.

We started our journey in 1988 in Western Australia - Australia's (and one of the world's) harshest and most demanding farming environments. Some have said that if we'd started out anywhere else, the software would not be as good as it is ... That is, if you can satisfy the needs of farmers in Western Australia, the software must be OK.

Fairport works with and alongside industry leaders, governments, agricultural education institutions, national and state research organisations and some of the world's largest and best run agricultural companies. We have formed software commercialization partnerships with research organizations and have been selected to form partnerships with world leading agricultural machinery companies, chemical manufacturers, produce acquirers in various projects over many years.

We are proud to be supporters and sponsors of Nuffield Farming Scholarships - giving a bit back to the industry that has stood by us over many years.

PAM (Process. Analyse. Manage.), Fairport's flagship product, was first released in March 1989 and has become the "Standard" for agricultural recording in Australia. Now the Fairport suite of software products are are used across many countries around the globe.

 

We believe some of the reasons for our success over many years are:

  • We are owned and operated by people with a background in farming
  • We are always prepared to listen to our clients - we know that without them we'd be nobody
  • We have never been complacent - we have always strived for ways to better our products and services

 

THE FAIRPORT TEAM 
 

Roger Wiese

CEO, Managing Director 

Roger Wiese

In 1988 Roger made a career move from farming to software developer when he founded Fairport Technologies. Roger operated the company as a one man band until 1992 when the workload overwhelmed him and the company's growth demanded a bigger workforce.

Roger stills dabbles in software development, but growing the business and overseeing the direction of the software development process are his greatest passions. Roger's skills, leadership & determination have grown the company to be the supplier of the most popular Agricultural software in Australia and a highly respected software development consultancy.
