After working with satellite technology in real life golf course spraying applications we recognized that, while some solutions were available from a few vendors, the complete package making satellite technology usable in a golf course maintenance operation was not yet available from one source. It also seemed that the better options were only available on new spray equipment purchases.
Once we realized that this technology could also be made affordable as an installation on multiple brands of sprayers or as a conversion to existing sprayers, it quickly became apparent that this technology would elicit widespread demand.
If a golf course could spend less than $30,000 to upgrade a new sprayer or as a conversion to their current equipment and they could save up to 25% of their chemical budget, there really was no reason not to convert. The pay-back for many golf courses would be less than two years.
That’s game changing in an industry that is judged by quality but also desperately looking for cost control.©
