AGCO Intros Mobile App for Professional Farmers


November 27, 2012

By Jyothi Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor

AGCO, an agriculture company, has introduced a new mobile application built specifically for agriculturist professionals on the go, helping them to manage their operations from anywhere at any time.

The new AGCOMMAND app is a complete end-to-end wireless information solution that promises to offer machine information for professional farmers and their dealers to support improved operations.

It is built with 13 new innovative features in the core telemetry service, such as new baler-specific functions that help hay and forage farmers. The enhanced fleet management capabilities enable users to more productively manage their projects.

It also allows users to know the weather conditions and where their machines are located using a unique, integrated radar feature.

It offers turn-by-turn directions to machines from their current location and user-defined alerts from vehicles and machines.

"AGCO’s industry-leading telemetry service, AGCOMMAND, has gone mobile. Building on the capabilities of our existing AGCOMMAND wireless information solution, it's exciting to deliver an app designed for the increasing demands of professional farmers and the dealer network that supports them," said Martin Richenhagen, chairman, president and CEO at AGCO. "Professional farmers and agriculture enterprises can increase their productivity through this new, wireless agriculture management tool that focuses on fleet management, vehicle health and overall machine uptime."

AGCOMMAND telemetry service for remote machine monitoring is available as an option on Challenger, Massey Ferguson and Valtra tractors, harvesting and application equipment as well as fleet vehicles.

Those interested can download the new AGCOMMAND app for free in the Apple App Store. The simple yet powerful iOS application for both the iPhone (News - Alert) and iPad is easy to use and available in 15 languages worldwide.
