John Deere made improvements to web and mobile versions to make them look and function in a similar manner.

John Deere has improved the look, feel and navigation features of its cloud-based system – Operations Center – to bring new levels of clarity and organisation to farm data management.

New fature: Work Planner

Another improvement John Deere made to the Operations Center is the addition of the new Work Planner feature farmers can use to streamline their work setup experience and help operators start working more quickly in the field.

Using the Operations Center’s Work Planner feature, farmers can now define field specific work details such as variety, prescription, or guidance lines in advance to simplify the operator’s job in the cab.

Going forward, farmers can use the Operations Center to collect and securely store their field, crop, and machine data from their connected machines for easy analysis and decision making. Since the system is cloud-based, it eliminates the need for transferring data via USB sticks.

John Deere precision ag technologies

To get the most from John Deere precision ag technologies, the company says farmers need four things: a Generation 4 CommandCenter display, a StarFire receiver, a JDLink connection, and the Operations Center.

“A Generation 4 display gives farmers control of machine functions with more precision, right from the cab, and the StarFire receiver ensures accurate positioning. JDLink serves as the wireless connection between their machines and streams data from the Generation 4 display to the Operations Center,” said Jennifer Badding, go-to-market manager – digital technology, with John Deere.

The company says its improved Operations Center is to bring clarity and organisation to farm data management, and can help farmers setup, plan, and monitor their field work, and analyse their data to make sound business decisions:

  • Setup fields, varieties, and products and sync them to the display via a JDLink connection.
  • Plan fieldwork with the Work Planner to keep operators efficient and reduce data entry errors.
  • Monitor equipment and fieldwork from anywhere using the Operations Center mobile app to optimise productivity and job quality.
  • Analyse the performance of fields, varieties, and products with the new Analysis tools to turn this year’s results into next year’s plans.

Availability

The improved Operations Center is active online, and the iOS version for Apple mobile products is available in the Apple App Store. The Android version will be available from Google Play in the coming weeks.

New users can create an Operations Center account at OperationsCenter.Deere.com or contact their local John Deere dealer for more information.
