Metos USA Becomes A Benchmark Labs Preferred Hardware Provider
CALIFORNIA – 19 January 2022 – Benchmark Labs Inc. (Benchmark Labs), a leading provider of asset-specific environmental forecasting solutions and Metos USA by Pessl Instruments, a leading provider of IoT-driven weather sensors are excited to announce an integration partnership to better serve the commercial agriculture industry. Metos USA will now be known as a preferred provider of weather sensing hardware to match Benchmark Lab’s cloud-based forecasting solutions. Both providers are integration agnostic in the space of weather forecasting but recognize each other’s technological accomplishments, so a partnership moving forward made sense to better serve the industry.
Actionable weather data is a critical component to all facets of the agriculture industry and the global food supply. Weather forecasting is part of every decision and operation in agriculture including allocation, logistics, work/labor tracking, and of course baseline ROI.
Both companies believe that collaboration in this space will help get beneficial, cutting-edge technologies into the hands of growers. This is a mutually beneficial partnership that should allow both parties to better serve customers in the agriculture space. This alliance represents a positive step forward for IoT applications in the farming space; empowering better data-driven decision-making for a more sustainable food supply chain.
“Growers today are smarter and more tech-savvy than ever before. They’re looking for not only reliable and accurate data but also methods of turning that data into actionable decision-making tools. This partnership provides just that,” says Derek Brazda from Metos. “Highly accurate sensors and hardware running on a wide variety of communication methods will provide the Benchmark platform with hyper-localized data to boost the accuracy of their already impressive user interface. In this industry, we are much stronger when we collaborate to bring the best possible user experience that is clear and understandable to anyone who uses it. Metos North America is excited to be a preferred partner and look forward to helping Benchmark offer value-added solutions to growers.”
“Users of meteorological and environmental data are often faced with a wide array of options and little or no guidance about which solutions might be the recommended ones for their particular application,” says Carlos Gaitan, CEO & Co-Founder of Benchmark Labs. “By partnering with METOS and Pessl Instruments, we can guide our new users to their wide range of IoT sensors and help them select those ones that suit their needs while guaranteeing that the quality of the environmental observations from the METOS sensors will enhance the accuracy of our state-of-the-art sensor-specific environmental forecasts.”
