With access to monitor machines from anywhere, you can prevent or minimize work interruptions, solve problems, and keep business running strong. By passing data from one machine to another, you can take time and guesswork out of jobs, ensuring consistently excellent results throughout your operation and growing cycle.
  • Your operation – Gain confidence with the information you are collecting in your Operations Center account.

JDLink™ hardware and connection makes sharing with partners simple. In the John Deere Operations Center™ application, users can establish a sharing relationship with trusted advisors and partners (John Deere dealers, agronomists, insurance agents, etc.) and electronically share a view of their machine and field data with whomever they choose. They have control and transparency over with whom data is shared and what data is shared. With the right trusted advisors and partners, support for your equipment and operations when it matters most is always a few clicks away.

Partnering with the John Deere dealer and sharing machine performance data allows for Connected Customer Support. Dealers can watch for critical alerts that could prevent a failure before it happens. Dealers can remotely diagnose issues without leaving their shop, and then dispatch the closest service vehicle and get the parts you need. With these features, downtime and repair costs can be reduced.

Wireless Data Transfer (WDT) is another way JDLink hardware and connection make sharing data simple and efficient. With JDLink compatible hardware, there is no need to manually transfer work data files with USB drives. With WDT, remotely send files between Operations Center and connected machines. Even a partnered agronomist can send work data files with WDT, if given the appropriate permission. Spend less time, make fewer mistakes, and don’t lose USB drives with WDT.

There are many connected software companies (CSC) that provide additional tools that add to the value of JDLink and Operations Center. They cover many categories such as aerial imagery, weather, profitability, prescription writers, to name a few. Many of these CSCs can send data back into Operations Center accounts wirelessly, which makes the experience even more efficient. You have transparency and control of your data being shared with CSCs through Operations Center. For more information on CSCs, go to https://Connections.Deere.com.
