In 2021 one of Exploding Phone's existing clients, HOPS launched a new business, HOPS AgTech focused on Agri Tech and recruitment technology. Jimmy Davies (HOPS MD) identified the system previously built for HOPS by Exploding Phone as having the potential to meet a wider currently under-serviced industry requirement. Jimmy notes, "When looking for a partner to develop our Software As A Service products it would have been very easy to go online and find multiple providers who would have claimed to be able to meet our requirements. However Exploding Phone's track record and strong third-party recommendation convinced us to enter into a what is a key partnership for our business with them". HOPS AgTech and Exploding Phone thus instigated a process of defining and implementing an extensive set of enhancements to the solution. Commenting on the delivery of the first tranche of the development work Jimmy said, "The decision to partner with Exploding Phone has been more than vindicated as we've found the talent and technical capability within their developer team is nothing short of outstanding. Similarly the guidance and input we receive as we move forward is highly valuable and we look forward to many more years working together."
