The multi-year agreement, which covers all AGCO equipment lines, serves to expand the AGCO-TPS strategic partnership announced in the Fall of 2008. TPS is providing machine control, machine management and precision farming technology products and services to AGCO, providing TPS access to global agricultural machinery market.
Tierra is the web portal through which all AGCONNECT information will flow in a timely, easy-to-learn, easier-to-understand and reliable format. TPS formed its Telematics Business Unit in 2008 and unveiled Topcon Tierra, a comprehensive mobile asset management system.
“AGCO is dedicated to integrating user-friendly advanced technology into our products to help our customers maximize the productivity of their equipment and become more efficient, more environmentally responsible and, ultimately, more profitable,” said Martin Richenhagen, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of AGCO.
“The expansion of the relationship between AGCO and TPS will greatly benefit both companies, their customers and potential customers,” said Ray O’Connor, TPS president and CEO. “Using products resulting from the AGCO and TPS partnership, farmers will have access to the leading technology.”
