DataConnect expands with Case IH, Steyr and New Holland

DataConnect, the global initiative to enable viewing mixed-brand fleets in a single platform, is now live with an expanded line of six major digital platforms and available to farm operations around the world. Case IH, Steyr and New Holland now join John Deere, Claas and the European farm management platform 365FarmNet, which launched the feature late last fall.

DataConnect works without any additional hardware and software components and ensures secure data handling. The solution will apply to hundreds of thousands of already connected machines.

Cloud-to-cloud exchange of data

The addition of CNH Industrial means that users of AFS Connect, the telematics platform of Case IH, MyPLM Connect for New Holland, and S-Tech for Steyr, will have the option for the cloud-to-cloud exchange of data with both John Deere Operations Center and Claas Telematics or 365FarmNet portals.

Users can view five different machinery data parameters from their machine fleet:

  • current machine location
  • historical machine position
  • fuel tank level
  • status of the machine in the field
  • machine speed

View all equipment in one platform

Farmers who wants to use the option can provide themselves with the permission to view all equipment in the platform that is most convenient for them. Once connected, the machines of all manufacturers appear automatically in the chosen portal. The vehicles are even displayed with icons in the respective brand colors.

Claas Connect now includes driver training

Claas’ digital customer platform Claas Connect has been expanded with a driver training function. For each machine in the fleet, instructions, training videos and other relevant documents for driver training are available free of charge. All documents are assigned via machine number and year of construction. This ensures that the information is always up to date and applies fully to the linked machine, according to Claas.
The documents are updated at least once a year, and more frequently for important technical updates. Information can be retrieved retroactively until 2018. The new function is currently available for the browser version of Claas Connect, but will also be available via the app in the near future.
