eFarmer has changed to FieldBee app
With the Bee 5.0
“We have launched
The idea of the product was ready, but one thing was missing – the name. And I remember how we chose it. We started with around 100 different names and then narrowed this list down to 20. We had intense discussions within a team. But when the FieldBee name appeared, it was a defining moment. It was unanimously accepted in a second. For us, the bee was clearly associated with the hardworking farmer who is bringing so much good to so many people.
The change our app name to FieldBee symbolizes a transformation in our company. We are launching a range of affordable precision farming products that will make farmers life easier and sweeter.“. “, – says Michael Utkin, founder of eFarmer B.V.
