IVI participates in industry trade shows where our team members can meet with growers and exchange information. Growers provide valuable feedback for continual improvement of our products, systems, and service. This further enhances what already occurs out in the field with our sales and our service technicians. At trade shows, we also have the opportunity to learn about innovative or emerging products that have the potential to be a part of our mix of offerings to our customers.
At IVI, we are continually gathering information in order to lead our industry, both in technology and service. Trade shows can provide the opportunity to help our products and systems evolve. Our engineers excel in improving our offerings, such as the Imperium storage control panel, and its accompanying app. The resource and information sharing that comes from our sales and our service team members results in continual improvement and enhancement of IVI’s standing as an industry-leading resource for the storage needs of our customers. Trade shows can also be one more opportunity to connect with the people we are in business for: our growing customers.
