DTN

Through a multi-year partnership, we helped DTN update its agriculture technologies while embracing a flexible staffing model.
Overview

Growing a Technology Ecosystem

DTN is committed to providing independent, actionable insights to its customers who feed, fuel, and protect the world. Those insights drive some of the world’s largest and smallest companies forward — helping to reduce risk, increase profits, and support smarter business decisions.

In recent years, DTN has made several strategic acquisitions. With those came new products that utilized various technologies.

Challenge

DTN sought a partner to help it unify disparate solutions it acquired over the years and streamline future product enhancements.

Insight

The agriculture industry runs on data. It’s critical that all applications and products using that data are part of a cohesive technology ecosystem.

Solution

We helped DTN support its suite of applications with a team who could optimize recently acquired technologies and accelerate important
data features.

We needed a partner that offered a flexible staffing model, as well as technical expertise to help us merge and update our various existing and acquired technologies. MentorMate exceeded our expectations on both fronts.

Removing Hurdles to
Success For Farmers

Many producers struggle with decisions around marketing crops in today’s difficult landscape. To help with this task, we worked with DTN to create the free DTN Ag Marketplace iOS app. It removes common hurdles and allows producers to set goals, manage inventories, discover unique selling opportunities, and even conduct end-to-end grain sales. What’s more, they can easily make decisions on their schedule, anywhere they go — including while doing fieldwork.

MentorMate helped us evaluate our various technologies and processes, and put in place a system that allows us to create new innovations more efficiently. They've allowed us to complete projects faster and accelerate many of our corporate initiatives.

PROGRESSIVE FARMER

An Updated Take on a Cherished Publication

As one of the United States’ longest-running publications, Progressive Farmer has helped producers successfully run their farm businesses for more than 130 years. As farming technology has exploded, DTN chose to bring the revered publication into the digital age.

 

We built a robust digital platform to house the publication’s award-winning content and deliver a rich, effortless reader experience. Additional enhancements were made to bring the top-tier publication to the cutting-edge of advertising standards. The new and improved dtn.com saw a whopping 41 percent increase in impressions, year over year, and steady monthly traffic of more than 1 million.

DTN AGRONOMIC PLATFORM 2.0

Agronomy Meets Technology

DTN Agronomic Platform (AP) became one of the company’s solutions through a strategic acquisition. The comprehensive agronomic software tool integrates precision agriculture technology and capabilities into a single, easy-to-use interface. With its geographic information system (GIS) integration, agribusinesses, crop consultants, and producers can better analyze soil conditions, insect and disease threats, as well as yield potential. For DTN AP 2.0, we worked to enhance its speed and performance, as well as expand its infrastructure and global reach.
