    • Leverage third parties to pull information from the Operations Center and to send it back through application program interfaces (APIs), enabling a single, centralized source of data for an organization.
  • Direct:
    • Create setup files and send them wireless through Wireless Data Transfer (WDT) to minimize start time in the field while ensuring accuracy in the work completed.
    • Use Remote Display Access (RDA) to see the display in the cab in order to support machines running in the field, minimizing downtime and trips to the field.
    • Plan and track maintenance schedules with factory recommended or custom plans for equipment.  Monitor and update plans from anywhere with the MyMaintenance mobile app.
    • Utilize the MyOperations™ mobile app to access daily summaries, field productivity, and quality details for an operation, enabling efficient management from any location.

John Deere Operations Center is a set of online tools that enable access to farm information anytime, anywhere. Tools in the Operations Center provide growers and their partners with the ability to analyze, edit, and make collaborative decisions from the same set of information to optimize logistics, plans and direct in-field work, increasing yield and profitability. Combined with its complimentary suite of mobile apps and the power of live connections to the machine through JDLink, the Operations Center enables producers to manage operation more efficiently, reducing costs and raising profitability.

Optimize in-field work

Achieving optimal yield and reducing waste are important for a manager. Mistakes on the job can be costly to yield, waste inputs and time, and ultimately affect profitability. Managing this stage of the operation can be chaotic, inefficient, and cause a manager to be on the phone for hours per day trying to coordinate work, monitor progress, and make sure the job gets done right. It takes numerous meetings, phone calls and even field visits, which are all prone to miscommunication and costly errors and delays.

 

Replace lists and phone calls with the Jobs panel, various jobs tool in the Operations Center, and the MyJobs App on a mobile device. A job is simply a complete list of all tasks with all the necessary instructions to execute the job accurately—right product, right field, right time, and right settings. After the field is complete and data is sent in, the grower or partners can review map layers to ensure work was completed as intended and make adjustments in the next fields.

#

Value in brief:

  • Reduce the risk of yield loss by ensuring quality job execution
  • Increase productivity and reduce operational costs
  • Enable in-field adjustments to the plan to quickly respond to environmental and logistical changes

Functionality:

  • Add a job with specific work instructions like task, field, machine, product, rate, and notes
  • See planned job list in job panel
  • Quick status in Job Panel and Job Marker
  • Track daily totals and productivity Job Summary in Job Panel
  • Share job functionality with trusted partners through permissions sharing functionality

Remotely manage machines and operators

As operations grow, keeping a pulse on what is happening with equipment and operators at any given time becomes more of a challenge. The John Deere Operations Center makes this easier with features such as Location History, Remote Display Access, and the MyOperations™ and MyAnalyzer™ apps that allow a manager to see what is going on anywhere, anytime they choose. With a bird’s-eye view of the farm and the ability to remote view into the cab, the Operations Center is an essential tool for today’s progressive grower.

Collaborate with staff and partners

Growers rely on many people inside and outside of their organization such as staff, John Deere dealers, agronomists, landlords, and crop input manufacturers to help them make decisions about their agronomics, machines, and more. The John Deere Operations Center makes the process of sharing machine and agronomic data easy and customizable. In the Operations Center, growers can establish a sharing relationship with staff and partners and electronically share a view of their operational information automatically. This allows them to better control and secure their data while making it available to those who can help them gain insights that increase productivity and reduce costs.
