Sep 10, 2018Net Irrigate releases new CircleScout app
Net Irrigate is scheduled to unveil its new mobile app at the Husker Harvest Days Expo, Sept. 11-13. Visitors at the Nebraska-based expo have the chance to interact and test the beta version onsite before its official launch Oct. 1.
The current capabilities of CircleScout such as GPS positioning and proactive notifications are all included in the new release. New features include allowing growers to purchase products and connect with service providers through the app and manage pivots through Alexa. Customers can get equipped faster and more inexpensively than through other existing channels, Net Irrigate said.
“In the same way that Amazon empowered consumers, we plan to lead the empowerment of growers to both operate and maintain their center pivots,” said Eddie DeSalle, CEO of Net Irrigate. “We want to continue to bridge the gap between irrigation and technology, change the mindset about how the industry can work, and most importantly, provide an experience that puts growers first.”
In addition, Net Irrigate said, customers can make needed adjustments to their accounts and make payments, creating a self-serve environment that eliminates inefficiencies and unnecessary steps in managing their irrigation systems.
Other features include multi-mapping that allows customers operating in multiple locations to monitor all of their systems on one screen; real-time chat to connect farmers with their rep at Net Irrigate for customer support; and an in-app events feed that can be tailored based on location, interests and account information. The CircleScout app is free to customers and will be available in iOS and Android through the app store.
