It’s time to toss aside those memory cards and USB flash drives for transferring data to and from the field and office. Go wireless!
“Producers want a user-friendly system to take advantage of the new data technology,” says Kathy Michael, product manager, John Deere Intelligent Solutions Group. “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.”
With the introduction of Wireless Data Transfer, which enables the wireless transmission of data between the GreenStar 3 2630 display, MyJohnDeere.com, and a producer’s farm management information system, producers will be able to do just that.
Once the system is in place, the user is then able to access his data from a smartphone, tablet, computer, or any Internet-enabled device. In addition, data can be shared with trusted advisers, and transferred to 2630 displays being used in the field.
“More of our customers are collecting data from machinery operating in the field,” says Michael. “They analyze the data to improve overall operations and share the data with trusted advisers 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.”
The technology is expected to be available in spring 2014 as a subscription upgrade to JDLink Ultimate with Remote Display Access.
