John Deere has announced that it is extending its JDLink in-base subscription service from three years to five years on all of its construction and forestry machinery. The company made the move as a result of more consumer interest in the integration of 4G hardware in their equipment.
The JDLink telematics system allows users to remotely connect to their equipment for alerts and machine information. With this data at their fingertips, customers can reduce downtime and manage their machinery from afar.
“The JDLink connection is foundational to John Deere and our channel’s ability to monitor the customer’s machine and improve uptime,” said Jena Holtberg-Benge, director of John Deere WorkSight™ and ForestSight™. “Extending it in base from three to five years across all product lines enables us to connect to people, equipment, technology and insights in order to provide exceptional support and value-added solutions that solve customers’ pain points and needs.”
JDLink is a part of John Deere ForestSight, the tool that allows customers to increase their productivity with support from John Deere dealers.
