John Deere upgrades operations centre

John Deere Operations Center adds mobile apps and mapping functions.

John Deere has released new software to enhance the functionality, ease-of-use, and overall value of their cloud based Operations Center.

The changes include more tools and features to allow growers to easily collect and access more farm information and collaborate with partners to gain insights, increase profits and direct their plans with more precision in the field.

The new tools and features now available in Operations Center include the MyOperations App which allows farmers to monitor and direct many farm activities by combining current machine and operational information into a mobile based experience.

Users can connect to in-cab displays, evaluate performance during and after field work and efficiently manage field logistics.

It is available for both iOS and Android devices from the John Deere App Center or the app store.

The new MyAnalyzer App helps users take field analysis to the next level by providing mobile access to documented map layers and farm summaries in the field and on the go.

Field Analyzer Maps have also been upgraded so Application and Harvest Speed Maps allow users to leverage speed maps for field application and harvest operations in order to evaluate performance of field work and its effect on yield outcomes.

The company’s HarvestLab Constituent Maps allows users to view acid detergent fibre (ADF), neutral detergent fibre (NDF), protein, starch and sugar content maps on self propelled foragers and use the average and maximum contents to improve decisions related to forage utilisation.

The company has also upgraded compatibility with data from Ag Leader InCommand 800 and 1200 and Raven Viper Pro, Viper 4 and Envizio Pro systems now able to be imported into the Operations Center.

This increases the amount of data available from growers using multiple brands of technology for analysis and better decisions.

On Deere’s More Tools Page the company says the list of software solutions connected to the open platform is growing and now offers a convenient place to find more information about how a users favourite ag software can connect to their Operations Center.

"We are very excited about this new batch of mobile apps and Operations Center features," says.

Scott Brotherton, product marketing manager at John Deere said the focus has been on building smarter mobile solutions.

“Our customers are telling us that the MyOperations and MyAnalyzer apps are truly 'data made easy',” he said.

“Even after just one season of use, some customers say they couldn't imagine working without these apps."
