Press Release: AGvisorPRO Hits Major Milestone with Platform Partners
Innovative Connectivity Channel Finishes Fourth Quarter Strong
Calgary, Alberta – May 27, 2021 – Just over a year since launching the Tech Direct Industry Partner Program, AGvisorPRO is pleased to announce even more additions to its global channel. AGvisorPRO solves the problem of distance, space, time and pandemic considerations with their free app that connects farmers to experts across the North American agricultural sector in real-time. The company has experienced significant growth over the past quarter, winning multiple awards with its innovative agtech model.
By using the AGvisorPRO technology experts can put their brains in the field, in the shop, in the greenhouse or in the barn without needing to be physically on the farm. Users of the AGvisorPRO app can schedule or meet instantly with Tech Direct reps to solve problems or answer questions about their company’s product, services or technology.
Rapidly Growing the Platform
Founded in 2019 by successful entrepreneur, best-selling author and Professional Agrologist Robert Saik, the platform has rapidly added new business partners to offer a robust variety of services to farmers and growers. Farmers simply download the free app to their smartphone, and can connect instantly via phone call or video chat to get their agricultural questions answered. Calls are archived so farmers can use them as reference if needed.
“It’s very rewarding to welcome these Tech Direct Partners to the AGvisorPRO platform”, says Saik. “To be able to offer their vast expertise to farmers and growers is key to achieving our goal of being the most trusted and reliable source of agricultural information in the country. With the pandemic our model of virtual connection is more important than ever – but it only works because of the quality of the partners on the platform. We are building a connectivity channel for agriculture and I’m humbled and honoured these successful businesses have chosen to join our network.”
