“COVID-19 has provided an interesting backdrop to highlight the benefits a remote connectivity platform like AGvisorPRO can bring to the agriculture sector.” says Founder and CEO Robert Saik, “Our application shrinks time and space, to stretch brains, not bodies, and to put people on the farm without being on the farm. In addition to our ability to connect “seekers” with independent advisors, we are particularly excited about how The Tech Direct Solution can instantaneously connect farmers and retailers with agriculture manufacturers and suppliers for free using AGvisorPRO in a way that is better, faster and more effective than a 1-800 number. We are very excited to be able to add these team members increasing our ability to service the agriculture sector.”
