John Deere offers data transfer for mixed fleets

John Deere’s farm management software system – Operations Centre – now also supports ISOXML files. This enables the transfer of field data from machine displays of the most popular manufacturers.

The John Deere Operations Centre now enables farmers and contractors to exchange different data formats, and there are several ways to transfer data from the machine to the Operations Centre.

JDLink ConnectTM

John Deere machines are connected directly and wirelessly with the Operations Centre via JDLink ConnectTM, without additional costs. Depending on the application, the data can be viewed in the Operations Centre in almost real time and work progress can be measured. Alternatively, the operator can use a USB stick.

ISOXML data

Field data from machine displays that use the ISOXML format can be transferred to the Operations Centre from the beginning of August, but a USB stick is needed for the exchange. Historical machine data can also be included if still present, for example when stored on a computer.

Exhange data via smartphone

Proprietary data from other machine displays can be sent to the Operations Centre via a USB stick. In addition, data can be exchanged via a smartphone using a dedicated memory stick. The data can be forwarded from the phone to the Operations Centre using the John Deere MyTransferTM app.

Manual documentation

Manual documentation of field work is also possible. This helps for example when collecting information from machines without a documentation function, or if the driver has forgotten to start the documentation process.

In this case, all data can be typed into the MyOperationsTM app on the smartphone. Manual documentation via the app is currently available for soil preparation, drilling and crop care applications such as fertilising and spraying, with harvesting data to follow shortly.

In addition to seasonal machine documentation, the Operations Centre user receives a comprehensive digital field book. Customers can view and manage all data from any location using a computer browser or smartphone.

Free of charge

The John Deere Operations Centre and its MyOperationsTM smartphone app are free of charge. In addition, the exchange of data from various sources does not involve any fees for farmers or contractors.
