Raven Industries Launches Integrated Dispatch Program for Ag Retailers

Dispatch Pro™ Expands Slingshot® Technology to the Industry’s First Connected Workflow™ Solution

Raven Industries, Inc. (the Company; NASDAQ:RAVN) announced today the release of Dispatch Pro™. This comprehensive program provides ag retailers and enterprise farms with a fast and flexible solution for all dispatching tasks. Dispatch Pro extends Raven's Connected Workflow™ so users can track their fleets, make data-driven decisions and control dispatching all in one location.

"The agriculture industry has some of the most advanced technology in the world, but most operations are still using paper and pencil or multiple software applications to complete a majority of critical daily tasks," said Sarah Walter, Senior Director of Global Sales for Raven Applied Technology. "Our customers can save thousands of dollars in a single season by implementing Raven's Connected Workflow™ and using features like Job Sync, Fleet Analytics, Machine View and, now, Dispatch Pro™. These are complicated operations with hundreds of moving parts; having everything you need in one place to manage each machine and job is extremely valuable."

Dispatch Pro™ is the solution for ag retailers and enterprise farmers to have control over their fleets to make real-time dispatching decisions. The system provides real-time fleet visibility, allows users to make dispatching decisions, and provides every operator with the knowledge of the exact field in which they are needed. Dispatch Pro is an unmatched scheduling program that enables operators to:

View in-route, active and idle equipment status.
Know when assets are not working so they can be reassigned where needed.
Dispatch across locations.
Assign jobs with a click of the button.
"Without Dispatch Pro™, we would have to use a wall map to make the most efficient use of equipment and logistics, routing our machines daily, which consumes many hours of your day," said Nick Larsen, West Agronomy Operations Leader, StateLine Cooperative. "Dispatch Pro cuts the time substantially — just click and drag workorders to equipment."

Slingshot® is the agriculture technology solution that enhances efficiency, increases accuracy, minimizes variability, and maximizes the bottom line. Through Raven's Connected Workflow™, ag retailers were given the information to make timely decisions. Now, with Dispatch Pro™, they can act on those decisions seamlessly.

Ag retailers and enterprise farms can save thousands a year with Dispatch Pro™. Visit www.ravenprecision.com/slingshot to schedule a demonstration of Raven's Connected Workflow™ and see how much your operation can save.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
