Slingshot on Regional Cellular Carriers

We regularly receive the question, “Will you work on my local cellular network?” We have customers in rural markets where Verizon and AT&T are not the primary carriers. The short answer to these customers is “No, but we do work on Verizon, AT&T, and a variety of additional major carriers which have roaming agreements with these regional cellular providers.” Here is the long answer. In an effort to ensure the best user experience for Slingshot services such as RTK corrections, file transfer, remote service and more, Slingshot was developed as a “managed solution”...

Precision Ag

Last night I jumped on my Facebook account for the daily review of what is going on with my family and friends.  My cousin, who farms in Northwestern Alberta had posted a photo of himself and his son.  The photo was taken in the cab of his tractor while he was seeding his spring wheat.  His comment read “Micah giving me his best choke hold!” Later in the evening, this same cousin posted another comment on Facebook.  It read “Steak, potatoes & corn on the cob for supper thanks to my love.   Seeding on the mile & half (that's 2.4km for those who don't know what a mile is) and autosteer so I can eat. Doesn't get any better!” During my years as a salesman in the precision ag industry, I often preached about reduced input costs, less operator fatigue, improved fuel economy and more.  Today, thanks to my cousin, I have learned a new benefit to add to my list that precision ag technology offers the operator – Improved Family Time.

You get what you pay for…

Previously in this blog, I spoke about CORS and other 3rd Party RTK networks that are compatible with Slingshot. Today I want to elaborate on this subject, and specifically how the Slingshot CORS experience exceeds that of our competitors. At one time or another, everyone has likely heard the old saying, “You get what you pay for…”

Spring is in the air

Spring is in the air

Both growers and retailers are eager to hit the fields, and are getting their Slingshot field hubs purchased and activated in preparation. My phone won’t stop ringing.  The emails never cease.  My seasonal allergies have acted up.  It must be spring.  For a salesman in the ag industry, this is a mixed blessing.  On one hand, sales are coming fast and furious...
