John Deere recently introduced Wireless Data Transfer, which enables the wireless transmission of data between the GreenStar 3 2630 display, MyJohnDeere.com, and the producer’s farm management information system. This efficient system eliminates the need for manual transfer of data and will be available as a subscription upgrade to JDLink Ultimate with Remote Display Access.
Retail availability of the new technology is expected in the spring of 2014.
“More of our customers are collecting data from machinery operating in the field,” says Kathy Michael, product manager, John Deere Intelligent Solutions Group. “They analyze the data to improve overall operations and share the data with trusted advisors to help make better decisions. With the introduction of Wireless Data Transfer and data sharing on MyJohnDeere.com, overall data collection, transfer, and management will be much easier.”
Wireless Data Transfer allows data to flow wirelessly to the customer’s personalized portal on MyJohnDeere.com. Customers are then able to access this data from their smart phones, tablets, computers, or any Internet-enabled device. They can then share that data with trusted advisors, and easily transfer value-added information to 2630 Displays they are using in the field.
“Producers want a user-friendly system to take advantage of the new data technology,” emphasizes Michael. “They want their data wherever they are and with more portability. Wireless Data Transfer and MyJohnDeere.com will allow them to receive and analyze data on-the-go. If data is easier to collect and manage, they will be more likely to use the information to improve overall operational efficiency, thus adding more productivity and profitability to their bottom line.”
Data management and security are also a concern of customers. With all the data that will be collected, analyzed, and managed, John Deere has published a general principles document on www.JohnDeere.com/trust to clarify security and data management details for dealers and customers.
“John Deere has a simple position when it comes to data management,” explains Michael. “We want our new data technology to provide value to the customer, we want to be transparent with customers on data usage, and we want the customer to be in control of their data choices.”
