Case Study – McGregor Gourlay

Connecting agribusiness

“We’ve seen a significant improvement to both our employee and customer satisfaction rates since connecting to our high-speed solution… (our staff members) can do their jobs easily with more efficiency.”

Allan Every, Group Systems and Processes Manager at McGregor Gourlay

Since 1897, McGregor Gourlay has been a leader in agribusiness, consulting with clients and helping them adapt and grow throughout many tough times.  Their business employs over 130 staff across 13 locations, and specialises in providing agronomic services, digital agriculture solutions, animal health, farm merchandise, water equipment and more to farms throughout NSW.

Recently their customers have been increasingly turning to digital technology in their own practices, which, through AgTech and IoT, is rapidly changing the farming landscape across the globe, improving producers’ efficiency, profitability, and sustainability.

Using solutions such as aerial imagery, moisture sensors, robotics, and satellite technology, Australia’s farmers are adopting and championing innovative digital technologies to improve their business outcomes. This has propelled the nation into becoming a world-leader in agritech, and has led to an increased need for reliable connectivity for farms to run critical technology and applications.

McGregor Gourlay needed to find a multi-site connectivity solution which would benefit their regional offices and allow their team to support customers in achieving their digital transformations.
