An excerpt from the meeting:
Geosys is a world leader in remote sensing decision support tools for agriculture and we have been in the field of digital farming for over 25 years. We build and customize platforms that help our partners add more value to their solutions and better serve growers. We are a global company with offices in Minneapolis, France, Brazil and Australia. As of December 2013, we are owned by Land O’Lakes and we have been tasked to design products with growers in mind since growers are our owners. We see OADA as an organization that is also designed with the grower in mind so we wanted to do a project with them.
Recently data has become more and more important to growers and their trusted advisors. One of the biggest pain points with data is getting it to and from the right people in a timely, efficient way. This project with OADA and CNH was designed with that exact concept in mind. We enjoyed the process of this project and consider it to have been very successful for us internally. We feel there is a good future for solutions such as this project because ultimately it allows the grower to use his data in the best way possible.
