What does STILT.PRO do?
At STILT.PRO we design and build professional equipment for growers. We strive to provide a fresh take on product design, blending simple safe robust design with user friendly technology to meet our growers and their customer’s needs.
We take the time to immerse ourselves into the growers problems and frustrations and then take a step back to look at the problem within a larger system. By doing this, we’re identifying many other aspects to the problem that are also critically important obstacles to our customer, things like transporting equipment, power sources, how the machine wears out and how it’s repaired.
STILT.PRO is working to deliver greater control of growing tasks by developing data solutions and automation and mechanization equipment. We take a system level approach and apply innovation to the design process as well as the delivered product. This will lower operating costs and allow growers to gain visibility to their operation. The nursery market is competitive and for our growers to endure and flourish they will need to innovate. We are meeting our customers where they are at by providing solutions built around their existing business and labor capability.
What is our tagline?
Simple AgTech MadeTough
What does it mean?
We strive to build product that is simple to understand and operate for the operator and grower. With all the opportunity that today has to offer, there is no need for complex settings, crude interfaces, and unclear instruction.
In order to simplify the growers experience and interaction, we apply technology behind the scenes, using technology like Internet of Things (IoT), Connectivity, Cloud databases and website dashboards. All of these things sound complicated, but they put the burden of complexity on the team at STILT.PRO and allow you, as the grower, to focus on producing and growing your plants.
Now simple application of technology is great, but we understand the environment that you operate in and delicate machinery is just not going to work at your operation. That is why we build our equipment rugged, tough and with the expectation that you’ll test us on that. To show our commitment, we cover our product for 2 years, unlimited hours. Put that to the test!
Where did the name STILT.PRO come from and what does it mean?
Quite simple – STILT.PRO represents strength and stands above the competition and unique in its own right.
Who is STILT.PRO?
We’re a unique mix of passionate people from many disciplines. We’ve got expertise in mechanical engineering, embedded systems engineering, web development, database architecture, marketing and even tech support. This day and age, there is a great opportunity to collaborate with the best of the best in every discipline. Being young and agile allows us to seek out the best. All this while still staying true to the best design practices to yield the most reliable results.
Who do we partner with?
We’re always open to new opportunities and new ways to help. To start with, we’re setting our sights on the wholesale shrub nursery. The hard working nature and complex operation provides a lot of opportunity for partnerships. We love working with nurseries looking to improve their operational efficiencies, learn more about their own business, gain critical insight into the past, present and future of their operation. And if you’re looking to move your clipboard data collection and independent systems into a more centrally integrated environment, we need to be talking.
How can STILT.PRO save you money?
Look at it like this – According to the USDA Census of Horticulture Specialties (2014) , for every million dollars in sales, you’re spending around $400K on labor. If we can find ways to improve your efficiency by only 10 percent, you’re looking at $40K per million in sales per year.
How does STILT.PRO approach a problem?
We take the time to immerse ourselves into the growers problems and frustrations and then take a step back to look at the problem within a larger system. By doing this, we’re identifying many other aspects to the problem that are also critically important obstacles to our customer, things like real-time visibility, historical trends, system wide views and from an equipment side – transport time of equipment, power sources, how the machine wears out, and even how it’s repaired. All of this information feeds back into our design process and allows us to better meet your needs.
How can you, as a grower, help STILT.PRO?
We need to hear and see your operation. We want to immerse ourselves into your operation to see it from our eyes and lens of experience. Please, invite us to your nursery. We’d love to learn about your operation as well as who you are personally.
