“Other providers tend to try to lock-in their customers with high upfront costs, challenging setup and training requirements, and by making it difficult to incorporate outside products into their systems. BumperCrop has changed this by minimizing solution lock-in, making it easy to integrate with existing equipment, and providing high-quality ongoing support,” according to Adam Forbes.
