Ag-Analytics is excited to announce the opening of a new office facility at the Convergence Center at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. The location will foster ideas and encourage collaboration between industry professionals and Purdue University faculty and students in a COVID Smart environment.
“We’re very excited to open this new branch of Ag-Analytics,” says Joshua Woodard, CEO of Ag-Analytics. “For us, there is no better place to grow our company than among the bright minds and future discoveries of Purdue University.”
“Digital agriculture and data science are important tools for our farmers in Indiana and across the globe,” says Dr. Karen Plaut, the Glenn W. Sample Dean of Agriculture at Purdue University. “We look forward to collaborating with Ag-Analytics as they expand to the Convergence Center at Purdue University.”
From this office, Ag-Analytics plans to enhance and expand their current grower-facing platform, tools and UAV services, including Profit Layers, a precision integrated profit mapping software which is connected to Climate FieldView and the John Deere Operations Center. The West Lafayette, Indiana location will also enable Ag-Analytics to further collaborate with agronomic and financial industry organizations across the Midwest.
Woodard continues, “As our Midwest headquarters, this office will foster stronger relationships with our customers while maintaining COVID smart protocols. We will continue to build out our products as well as flexible remote work policies — individualized to employee preference and choice to manage risk — while practicing appropriate physical distancing and testing which we will offer free to our employees and on-site visitors. This is the smart thing to do.”
With digital business on a strong up-tick, Ag-Analytics remains cognizant of the importance of human connections as well as public safety. “The decision to open this new office was an intentional research-based decision. After very careful consideration, I came to the conclusion that promoting testing and safe work practices while providing valuable employment and services to our clients was the best thing to do for public health and business — short and long run. I suspect most universities and businesses will follow our lead in this respect in the coming weeks.”
The beautiful and modern Convergence office space is located within the Discovery Park District of Purdue University. Convergence Center will begin operations on Monday, June 15.
