Easy Steps to Boost the Value of Your AgGateway Membership
By Wendy Smith, AgGateway President & CEO
Are you getting the most out of your AgGateway membership?
Consider these questions: Are you using the resources available to you through your membership? Are you, or someone from your organization, engaging in board, council, committee, project and/or working group meetings? Are you sharing ideas and eConnectivity “pain points” that you think should be addressed – and how they might be addressed? Have you discussed eConnectivity internally with your company to forge goals that AgGateway teams might help you achieve? Are you getting connected? If the answer to any of these questions is no, then the answer to first question is also no.
In the next few eConnectivity Matters columns, we’ll talk about relatively easy steps you can take to boost the value of your AgGateway membership. Today, I want to talk about some of the valuable resources available to you as an AgGateway member. You may already be aware of some of these, but I’m often surprised when I talk to a member and they had no idea that “such and such” was available to them. Whether you’re just getting started or an old hand at implementing eBusiness, these resources can help you accomplish your goals.
There’s much more – including the AgGlossary (AgGlossary.org), ADAPT, the guidelines that will be coming out of the PAIL and SPADE precision ag projects, and Enabling Services, among others. We’ll address some of these resources in future articles. In the meantime, I encourage to take a look at the resources described here. You may find a single tool, idea or feature that opens up a whole new door for you in terms of business efficiency, boosted productivity, and better ties with customers and potential customers! And that’s what AgGateway membership is all about.
