From the grower to the truck driver, the entire crop chain will now have more data at their fingertips, after a new partnership between infiswift and Acuitus Ag.
An enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) platform leader, infiswift will develop IoT solutions with Acuitus Ag, an Idaho technology company, which provides ag-tech solutions to farm equipment suppliers.
“We’re incredibly excited to partner with infiswift on the development of what we see as a revolutionary shift in ag technology,” said Dan Piquet, Solutions Architect at Acuitus Ag. “Infiswift is the ideal partner for Acuitus because it offers the unique combination of powerful IoT platform technology and professional services. This allows Acuitus to customize its offerings and to deliver new and valuable IoT solutions to thousands of customers around the globe.”
Using the technology infiswift and Acuitus are developing, a grower can easily compare past versus current operations and make statistical predictions to better plan for upcoming seasons. Distribution vendors will be able to get alerts when a certain volume of crops are ready for transport, and dispatchers will have a clearer picture of when a truck should be ready at the site for pickup. While basic use of the technology will yield efficiency gains and a positive return, it will evolve over time as each farm connects custom data to support their specific situation.
“Acuitus’ vision of the future of farm operations foresees a significant shift in the efficiency of how things are done on the farm,” added Will Shippee, Sr. Director of Business Development at infiswift. “With our technical experience, we can make this vision a reality and drive tangible value in the AgTech sector.”
