Ideas Worth Sharing 💭

What Do We Do with the ADT Seal?

From 2012 to today, I have worked with different companies in various roles dealing with precision ag including support, sales, and product management. All of those companies and all of those roles have focused on helping users understand what a given platform does and how it can improve their operations. What a contract says and what it means for the grower, the operation and the data is often overlooked.

Since AgDNA became ADT Certified in 2017, we have used the ADT Seal in in conversations with growers, in presentations and on our website to help spark the conversation about what is happening with growers’ data. Explaining what the ADT Seal represents and walking growers through the 10-question survey that clearly outlines what we are doing with their data presents an opportunity to strengthen the trust in our relationship and put their minds at ease. The sales conversations still focus on what we offer: with ADT Certification, one part of that is peace of mind surrounding data use and security.
