There’s no question that in the digital age, data is king. For years now, economists have said data is worth more than gold or oil. But what is it worth to your mulch production operation? Many colored mulch producers rely on a few key performance indicators (KPIs) but struggle to capture data in a way that makes sense for their needs. That’s because their mulch coloring equipment doesn’t give them the ability to track production in real time or view data at a granular level. Thankfully, there are now better alternatives that can help mulch producers get a better handle on costs and optimize production rates. Here’s how a technology upgrade that yields more actionable data could lead to better financial performance for your business.
If you’re not currently producing colored mulch, now may be the time to start. Market forces, consumer preferences and advances in mulch coloring equipment have all combined to create new opportunities for commercial and residential colored mulch.
