DULUTH, Ga. — AGCO Corp., under its Fuse smart farming division, is introducing its next generation telemetry solution for North American customers and dealers. AGCO’s Connect was released in Europe in 2018 and will launch in North America at the 2019 Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Ill., August 27–29.
AGCO Connect allows customers and dealers to connect their AGCO mixed fleet under one platform from anywhere, at any time. Customers can see the current status of their machines and how they have been performing in terms of fuel levels and consumption rates, engine hours and time to service, as well as current and historical positioning. All of these are communicated over a secure data platform. The benefits include logistics management, remote accessibility and more informed decision making abilities.
Dealers have a selection of tools to enable proactive service delivery, such as diagnostic support features, to help with planning and forecasting service support for customers. Dealers also have an overview of machine activity, including service requirements, error codes, machine and owner information and the ability to assist with remote diagnostics.
A unique feature of AGCO Connect lets customers and dealers personalize their Connect application by choosing a preferred brand, including AGCO Connect, Challenger Connect, Fendt Connect and MF Connect. Regardless of the brand application, all users receive the same data depending on the customer or dealer interface.
“Our latest telemetry solution is built upon the needs of our customers and dealers,” says Matt Wong, director of Fuse North America. “AGCO Connect allows you to have real-time information about your equipment through the mobile app or on a computer.”
A free 1-year subscription is available to current high horsepower equipment owners, with new owners receiving a 3-year subscription. A 3-year subscription is also available for new application equipment owners, with more models eligible for subscriptions to follow.
