gro-care Virtual Support Service Launched 

On Monday, we launched gro-care, a virtual support solution for cultivator equipment and facilities across North America. While we look forward to visiting our customers in person, we are focused on providing the best possible service for our customers that are working within broad, national safety guidelines and restrictions.  With that in mind, the urban-gro gro-care monthly subscription includes the following suite of solutions:

  • Remote Engineering: A dedicated team of maintenance and cultivation experts help customers set, monitor, and analyze all types of digital cultivation equipment, from fertigation controllers to HVAC equipment.
  • Resource Optimization: Our cultivation space planning team will help customers to assess labor allocation after reductions/expansions in workforce, while taking on non-core tasks, like product procurement, recurring consumable purchasing, setting maintenance schedules, and more.
  • IPM Support: urban-gro’s team of plant scientists help customers integrate proactive plans to prevent pathogen emergence, with recommendations for nutrients and pesticides that have been screened by the compliance team.
  • Commissioning: Our commissioning personnel will support your team by both teaching them how to operate and repair equipment in your cultivation, as well as providing troubleshooting support, by leveraging our years of experience with a diverse set of assets.

urban-gro will provide a webinar on the calibration, monitoring, and troubleshooting of fertigation controllers on April 15, 2020 at 10:00 MDT. To register for the webinar, visit https://bit.ly/2ygLqij. For questions, please contact Colin Ferrian, Director of Enterprise Solutions, at gro-care@urban-gro.com.

HealthMate Plus (Virus / Bacteria / Odor Control)

Our customers have been asking for virus and bacteria control solutions for dispensary and patient room settings. We are pleased to offer HealthMate Plus as an option to protect employees and customers in these smaller settings. These highly visible solutions provide true medical grade HEPA filters which remove 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns and 95% of all particles larger than 0.1 microns. Orders may be placed online with shipping to your location within 1-2 business days. Contact your Director of Sales for special pricing. 

Moleaer Promotion - Save up to $4500

Our customers have been asking how they can improve their current cultivation operations with the least possible investment. From our experience, one of the best ways is with the addition of Moleaer dissolved oxygen (DO) to their fertigation system. Customers have reported increased yield, metabolism, and improved disease tolerance with the mega boosted DO that Molear provides. urban-gro is excited to offer an exclusive 15% discount on this equipment along with free engineering design to integrate into an existing system. This promotion is worth up to $4500 in savings. Contact Courtney Onofre at promo@urban-gro.com to get started on this project. This promotion expires on May 15.
