“We could have employed a program developer, but we saw that as a huge cost for our business and one that would continue for years during the changing demands of tracking honey from the paddock hive to the consumer shelf. We came across the excellent TracerPlus website and were very impressed with how flexible and easy it was to program compared to our previous arrangement.”
