AGCO releases major updates to its AgCommand fleet management technology product


AGCO, Your Agriculture Company (NYSE:AGCO), a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment and infrastructure, released several major updates to its industry leading farm fleet management tool, AgCommand. The updates will streamline wireless data capabilities for customers and improve AGCO dealers’ customer service opportunities, resulting in customer and dealer time savings, and greater visibility into farm operations.
A key component of AGCO’s overarching new global technology strategy, FuseTM Technologies, AgCommand is AGCO’s global telematics and asset management tool that offers complete fleet management with machine performance reports, wireless communication, theft recovery and a web-based application for easy access to data, along with iPad® and iPhone® mobile apps. AgCommand helps connect mixed fleets for any size operation, including AGCO’s core machinery brands Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra, as well as non-AGCO brands.
Key updates in the new release include:
• Machine and Account Management functionality improvements that allow customers to ‘hide’ parked machines, and allows large operators to make their operation visible to multiple dealers. Dealers can now easily reflect transferred ownership of machines sold aftermarket.
• New mobile app features including more detailed historical reports, improved map view and navigation, weather radar and improved dealer access to AgCommand’s at-a-glance dashboard which will provide dealers the ability to receive turn-by-turn directions to a customer’s machine.
• Report enhancements and additions including a new report to see machine hours by date and improved search capabilities within reports
• Fendt VarioDoc Pro support for streamlined data logging directly into AgCommand, reducing operator time spent transferring data from Fendt machines, and eliminating the need and cost of a second data plan.
“This update will enhance our customers’ ability to see exactly what’s going on with their entire fleet across multiple brands, so they can keep their machines running and in the right place, at the right time. Our growers will also benefit from enhanced service capabilities from their dealers,” said Bernhard Schmitz, Commercial Manager for Advanced Technology Solutions (ATS) products in Eastern and Western Europe, Africa and the Middle East. “AgCommand is a flagship technology product under our global precision farming initiative, and this update represents one of the most comprehensive updates since launch,” said Matt Rushing, Vice President of AGCO’s global ATS and Electronics Functional Group (EFG) divisions.
