In the wake of the newest Apple keynote, our topic on the root of programming comes at a perfect time! Apple has done a marvelous job of showing the world the power and beauty of technology programmed just right, and just for your needs.
In 2019, programming is everywhere and it is a part of everything. When you break it down, we are in contact with programming all of the time; your phone, car, your alarm system, laptop, grocery store, or…. the software for your greenhouse!
Programming is a beautiful tool that we have been able to create and utilize. At its core the power of programming, and the reason it has such a powerful root in our businesses and lives, is because of enhanced communication. Programming allows us greater speed and reach with our communication than ever before, and that is a beautiful asset.
Whether you are communicating with your family and friends via email, text, and IM, or your software tools are communicating with each other, programming has made communication instantaneous. Increasing our productivity, efficiency, safety, profitability, and much more.
At ISS we would argue that the most powerful root of our business is the ability to program and write code well! Because when you can program well, you can offer an un-
paralleled service to your customer. When we need a more cost effective, or simpler solution to a current form of operation, we look too programming to do that for us. An example that comes to the top of mind is security. We no longer have guards standing outside of our house; if we feel we need security, we install a programable security system. In which aspects of your life is there a software program that would make this task or operation a whole lot easier? If all of the other facets of your life are enhanced by outstanding programming, why not have your growing experience be as well?
We also think it is essential to allow the pieces of technology in your greenhouse to speak to each other seamlessly. There is no longer a need to have 5 different spread sheets, a clipboard, and then spend countless hours of inputting data. PICAS has been programmed in a way that is tailored to avoid just that! From data collection and crop management, to labor tracking, and shipping information, everything is programmed to communicate flawlessly to allow a seamless flow of data. One way that PICAS uses excellent communication is in our partnerships between growers and suppliers. PICAS has automated communication with our B2B connections, allowing your growing experience to be more accurate and efficient by being able to import data and accurately plan for your growing season.
Programming allows all of the necessary steps in your process to be automated, but still giving you the freedom to control your orders, and the flow of your growing operation.
There was a need, and software filled it. We are all naturally problem solvers, the difference is how we solve those problems. Programmers have created a pattern that allows the world the ability to communicate fluidly with one another in a hope to save time, and energy on getting a message across.
The message your growing operation is getting across is beauty growth, and sustainability. By the power of the root of programming, you can make this process flow beautifully along with your crops.
If you do not have a software that is designed for your business, I encourage you to reach out, and see what PICAS has to offer!
The worlds technology continues to evolve, and so does PICAS. We really hope you get a chance to see the great ways that PICAS integrates programming into your growing experience to enhance communication of all forms, stimulate productivity, increase accuracy, and most importantly, free up your time to grow more beautiful crops.

Perhaps we are tired of being run ragged by pen, paper, and lists; we seek out a software that can accomplish those things for us.
