Healthy Farming Communities: Are my friends being sold the dummy?
18th Century cleric and writer, Charles Colton, famously noted “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”
We recently caught wind of a few people ‘flattering’ Agworld with great sincerity and urgency. However, just as with handbags and watches, an imitation is an imitation.
When it comes to collaboration within the Ag Industry, nothing comes close to the power and dexterity of the Agworld system. We are leading people out of the isolation that comes from operating independent pieces of agribusiness software as well as operating out of self-reliance. As all rural districts know, strong connections and webs of support are critical in cultivating healthy farming communities.
How is Agworld helping to break down these walls of isolation? In a nutshell, our cloud-based technology is making a way for people to share real-time data, in the moment, and from one centralised location. Our comprehensive permissions system means individuals can choose the level of information they want differing people to be able to access.
This is a vastly different experience to what the server-based programs are offering in the market and especially those ones being falsely conveyed as “Cloud.” Where true collaboration is concerned, investing in these imitation programs is tantamount to buying a fake Rolex.
Agworld is unparalleled in its ability to create an agri-information sharing hub where information is shared in real time based on the permission level that the information holder grants. Further information sharing takes place in the powerful Agworld library and through collaborative work-spaces created through Agworld’s user-initiated Focus Groups.
Combine Agworld’s true Cloud system with social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook and you step into a whole other level of collaborative experience and intuitive decision-making.
While imitations may look similar, it’s worth considering whether they are truly cloud-based and whether they allow for real collaboration. This said, and in pursuit of healthy farming communities, perhaps one question remains: Are my friends being sold the dummy?
