Raven Industries recently introduced the Slingshot API at the 2010 Ag Retailers Association Annual Conference and Expo. Building upon the Slingshot suite of wireless products and services, including RTK correction, data transfer, remote support, high speed internet access and more, the Slingshot API is designed to bridge the information gap between activity in the field and existing software at the office. This is made possible through Slingshot's managed wireless connectivity platform and a software toolkit (API) to be implemented by software vendors and will allow an organization to take control over workflow and operational efficiency without replacing current software platforms.

"The Slingshot API allows software providers to offer their customers an automation platform that is fully integrated in their software, enhancing the value of the offering," said Paul Welbig, director of Slingshot operations for Raven Industries. "Raven has built the tools necessary to learn the system, integrate, and be part of the future design of the platform. Software companies and other Slingshot API customers will receive unprecedented access to previously inaccessible field operations and hardware."
