To cater to customers who need specialized fleet and logistics management solutions, John Deere has developed Operations Center PRO. This new level of the John Deere Operations Center™ offers beneficial features on top of what is already provided in the Operations Center itself. Specifically, customers will be able to immediately leverage Operations Center PRO Dispatch, a specialized new tool for large fleets of personnel and equipment.
"Operations Center PRO helps ag retailers efficiently manage equipment fleets and agronomic data on the same platform many of their farmer-customers currently use," said Ryan Stien, marketing manager for John Deere. "This allows retailers to more effectively serve their customers while still giving farmers control of their data through secure permissions management."
Operations Center PRO Dispatch is designed to work seamlessly with the features of AgLogic™, the previous agricultural dispatching solution from John Deere. With the PRO dispatch system, users can handle all of their work orders directly in the mobile app. Fleet managers are able to see their equipment and tender locations in real-time. With the ability to analyze machine productivity, they can help leverage agronomic data for their customers as well.
Operators who have Generation 4 displays paired with JDLink™ modems can receive work orders through Operations Center PRO Dispatch. As a result of the automatic flow of data, users spend less time on setup and limit the potential for data entry mistakes. The usage reports that can be generated with this solution also make it possible to better evaluate fleet efficiency.
In the end, operators can analyze everything from machine idling time to equipment needs, enabling them to have complete visibility over their operations. For users without such extensive data requirements, the core John Deere Operations Center will continue to be free to farmers and ranchers.
