In 1999, the Logiag customer base was just a hundred or so clients. The REA, initially called the “Règlement sur la Réduction de la Pollution d’Origine Agricole”, had already been in effect for a little more than a year. In this context, Logiag set as its objective to develop and then provide a top-quality service for reviewing and revising crop fertilization plans by taking advantage of information technologies. The gains in efficiency that were achieved thanks to IT were significant and lead to an increase in the number of customers. The business model was refined and the clientele continued to grow.
