As with most things, consulting a professional is probably the best first move.
"It's probably most important to get a consultation so we would come down and take a look and see what the customer's end goal is, and then help design a system that reaches that goal," says Jason Fraser, business development manager with Precision Land Solutions based in Winkler, Manitoba. "Any system should also be built so it can easily accommodate future expansion."
