SureHarvest and Altamont Technologies finalized their agreement to enable SureHarvest the rights to market, sell, and implement Altamont Technologies' LandView mapping, field recordkeeping, and reporting system. The two entities have integrated SureHarvest's Farm Management System and LandView applications to meet the market demand from growers, farm managers, field reps, and agriculture consultants to quickly and easily record and access their important information.
"LandView is a simple to use yet powerful geo-spatial app that complements our other offerings," said SureHarvest President/CEO Jeff Dlott. "This agreement furthers our efforts to provide the best available information technology solutions to agricultural producers and their partners. Our customers have been asking for easy-to-use apps to access information about their farms or ranches in maps while standing in the field, working in the truck, or back at the office. Now they can. This partnership helps us support our customers and grow our business."
LandView is an intuitive, user-friendly, map-based application that provides site-specific data capture of farming activities or tasks to be completed in the future. It also integrates with several remote sensing geographical information systems (GIS) to enable detailed spatial analysis of farms and fields. Utilizing the "cloud" technology enables producers of food, fiber and feed an opportunity to see their operations in a way that helps them make better decisions quickly and accurately. The Enterprise Edition of LandView allows for the sharing of data with trusted advisors and partners in a seamless and effortless manner.
"We think that the advent of smart phones and tablets is a game changer for agricultural producers and others in the industry. Simply seeing problems or an issue in a field alters the way we can try to solve them. A grower can attach a photo to anything anywhere and assign a task that others in the organization can access for subsequent follow up activity," stated Altamont Technologies President Tom Horsley. "What really adds value to our offering is the integration with the SureHarvest products. We can display irrigation, nutrient, pesticide, yield and food safety data in LandView in a way that aids growers in their decision processes. Some things are just better viewed on a map and the iPad and iPhone are the perfect tools to make that a reality," added Horsley.
