APT works with our Marketplace or with your source of suppliers. You can purchase APT outright where you pay one price for one unit or you can pay monthly. Both options include our cost to set up APT. High level overview, APT uses your history, your current order data, the future order data you create and any adjustments you make to future orders that APT forecasts for you. Your first order will require questions to be answered accurately. Your second order will require less information as will your third. Typically by your fourth order APT is sending you forecasted orders allowing you to “accept” or “modify”. Either choice and APT learns, remembers. All future forecasts APT learns from your response and soon enough APT will be accurate to your demand. 

All of the products available through GRO-CONNECT are designed to be affordable and easy to use. Our competitors in Blockchain and AI/ML have complex systems that are costly. We have a different approach. APT uses your ordering history, that defines the consumer profile, and we do this with your information and APT can work with your current systems in place. APT works with your current system instead of replacing it. Most of  our installs are remote and downloadable. All of APT is easy to use.
