They work in the Survey, Construction, Agriculture, and Mapping GIS spaces, and offer a host of products and services that make many industries more efficient.

On the Agriculture side, we have solved problems like data management, over and under application of farm inputs, and command of control of many aftermarket pieces of farm equipment that do not come from large equipment manufactures.

"Easy and simple aotusteer with mapping"

What do you like best?

It is affordable software to manage your mapping from field applications to auto steer. We use it on our farm to manage our manure applications and guidance all in one.

What do you dislike?

It was a little hard in the beginning to integrate it with our machinery, because it was not built into the steering valve when using auto steer.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to provide the state application maps of our manure management plan, which is a lot less headache for us.
