AgKonect’s founders have backgrounds in agricultural and environmental R&D and operations. We have deep awareness of the needs of researchers in relation to field work, which can be improved massively using Konect. It is simple to build a system for a project, for one or several users. We want Konect to be used widely in universities, government departments and private R&D agencies. We hate the sight of data pain! All clipboards should be banished!
“Don’t be like me, and still have PhD data sheets in a box under your house, 35 years later (or did I chuck them?). The kindest thing my examiner said was, “He sure did a lot of work” (I passed). I can’t bear the idea that grad students are still suffering data pain.” – Pete Whittle, co-founder of AgKonect.
Postgrads have small budgets – we get that. The cost of your Konect field data system doesn’t have to be more than one licence, if you build it yourself. Postgrads are good at that, and we are setting up a social channel for Konect support, just for postgrads. You can even hassle your lab leader to invest in a few Konect licenses that students can share.
Professional researchers – agriculture and environment
We want to share Konect with all field researchers. For a small part of your operational budget, you can have a sophisticated system that enables you to simply set up field data forms. This will make your field work easier and better, and save you the hassles of re-keying data back at the lab, delivering real efficiencies and work improvements.
