Our Client, the US farm-tech startup, came to Belitsoft by reference from another client who knows Belitsoft as people who can take responsibility and ownership over their work and get the job done right by hitting the dates and budget that has been set out.
Being a fifth-generation farmer and having a keen interest in technology, the Client decided to enter the AgriTech market with a truly helpful marketplace app connecting farmers and laborers.
According to some estimates, the AgriTech market was valued at US$ 17 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 41 billion by 2027 with North America leading the market. So every new valuable idea is warmly welcomed and generously supported by investors.
Working together with a Client, we managed to create an MVP that attracted investors and let the Client's business thrive.
As a part of the farmer community, the Client could see and experience the key challenges of most farmers and laborers nationwide:
- difficulty for farmers to hire labor force with the right skills, available in a certain region and time;
- difficulty for farm laborers to find a gig in their region that fits their skills and rate.
The challenge can be overcome by creating a network of farmers and laborers for full visibility of available jobs and accessible laborers in real-time.
Our aim was to create such an app that serves as a solution to a rural labor shortage across the USA.
