RAVEN Industries and Topcon Agriculture have announced a new licencing deal set to benefit farmers by ensuring better data sharing capabilities.
Allowing the use of Raven’s Slingshot application programming interface (API) across various Topcon software platforms will enable farmers to move data through a wireless connection between the platforms.
Topcon, vice president sales and marketing, Brian Sorbe said the move fit with the companies digital solution strategy of partnering, connecting and collaborating.
“This partnership with Raven embodies that philosophy ideally,” he said.
“It demonstrates that two companies, competing in the same space, can collaborate to provide additional value to the producer, dealer, and original equipment manufacturer.”
Raven, director Slingshot services and logistics, Paul Welbig said the company was excited to add Topcon to its expanding ecosystem of partners for Slingshot.
"We share a common vision to make it easy for customers to share data across platforms and this is a great example of that in action,” he said.
