Live Data Tool Saves Hundreds of Hours

Admittedly this is an odd application for us but when we overheard a customer talking about the hour per day it took them to get the sports historical data they needed and that they could really make their program work if they had 5 years of data but that would take close to 1,000 hours of work, we told them AditNW could help. First we developed a python application that goes to the 10-30 websites they need to look at each day and scrapes just the applicable data.  Second, we added a function to condense that data into a format … Read more

AditNW delivers Practical Technology

We know that technology is easier to imagine than deploy.  That is why our signature is practical, proven technology you can use in the field.  For example, we knew it would be tough for Pontis-Nicaragua to work with a high tech weather station so we developed practical technology that does not require a pc onsite and gives them the ability to quickly get answers when things go sideways. When the field test unit had a problem they asked how to get it back for review.  Not an easy task as equipment like this must be hand carried to and from … Read more

Practical Technology: Walk the Talk

It always seems there are plenty of people who want lots of money to help me implement the latest technology.  That isn’t how I do business so it’s not the way I want to operate.  Two things come to mind:  You or I need the capability but probably don’t need a high-priced, super slick solution.  In other words, we aren’t Google, Microsoft, Amazon, or Apple. We want to test the tech first.  Will it really work for us? At AditNW we wanted to test a new server-based solution to providing Python applications.  We got the whole thing up and running … Read more

Victor with weather station

Weather Station Arrives in Nicaragua

The Pontis Weather Station arrived in Nicaragua this week and we were excited to see Victor Torrez, one of the farm training technicians, assembling it.  They will spend the next couple of months testing and learning to use the hardware before deploying on the model farm in Veracruz near Managua.
