Welcome to 2013!

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2013!

I love this time of year.  It really is a season of “newness”.  The calendar is not the only thing that is new.  Many people embark on new initiatives to improve their health (lose weight, quit smoking, etc.) Several of these people have a new-found motivation to return to work from the holiday season and get productive.  For farmers in the corn-belt of the USA, I surmise the turn of the calendar is a reminder that the upcoming planting season is not too far away.   Regardless of the location, I challenge all farmers to use your newfound motivation to prepare early for your upcoming planting season.  Make your purchases of new electronics well in advance, so you have plenty of time to install, test and familiarize yourself with how they operate.  Driving to the field for the first day of planting is not the correct time to learn how that new gadget works.  Slingshot can help in this regard.

The Slingshot field hub itself is kind of a “set it and forget it” piece of hardware.  We manage the firmware updates for the Slingshot field hub remotely, meaning you get the latest firmware updates without any effort on your part.  Using the internet capabilities of Slingshot field hubs, farmers can download firmware updates, manuals, tutorials and more – all from the tractor cab – to help them get all of their farming electronics prepared and fully tested before that first seed hits the soil.  For any problems – Raven support staff are ready and willing to help engage in a Remote Support Service Session with you to help resolve the issues now.

It’s 2013 – why not try something new this year?  Slingshot is here to help.  Lets Go!!!
