Looking for a fresh approach to your business, can’t make use the data you already have or don’t know where to begin?
A common concern technology and software is that its hard to tell what you’re actually getting. Foresters and natural resource professionals aren’t typically tech experts! Tech is not like a truck where one can look under the hood, or be assured that the dealership in town will promptly service any issues under warranty. How much will the software actually cost (in your time) to operate over the long term? Will it get updated when something goes wrong, will it be secure from hacks and ransomware? Will you have to do updates, or is there a hassle free way that this gets done for you?
With buying a pickup truck, you know what you’re getting, what the warranty is an that a local dealer will service that truck for years to come. However, with technology it can be tough to understand what’s inside if it will run over the long term.
Imagine instead what it would feel like to know what you’re getting on the front end — instead of proceeding with uncertainty and risk of getting stuck with something which doesn’t work for you.
