Global machinery manufacturers Case IH and New Holland have unveiled the FieldOps app, a new all-in-one mobile and web solution purposefully designed for farmers and contractors to connect, view and manage their operation of a multi-branded fleet at any time, from any location.

The FieldOps portals provide real-time access to agronomic, machine, and operational data, connecting users to their machines, fields, teams and partners and empowering them with actionable insights.

Driven by the digitisation of agriculture, connected machines allow farmers to access vehicles to drive more profitable and productive operations, while also allowing dealers additional access to better service machines to minimise downtime and maximise operational efficiency.

Addressing severe limitations for those in remote areas of the globe in connecting with their machines or operations, Case IH and New Holland has taken a significant step in enhancing connectivity options for operators via a strategic collaboration with Intelsat, a renowned leader in satellite communications for more than 60 years. This means that operators, regardless of location, can fully utilise the functionalities of FieldOps with consistent and reliable internet access.

Machine Analytics proactively monitor machine health and quickly spots high-priority issues while staying informed with customised notifications. Data can also be viewed for any specific field over individual seasons and years, enhancing operational efficiency. Remote Viewing of the In-Cab Display allows external machine monitoring leading to easier coordination with operators and the ability to suggest alternative machine settings.

FieldOps centralises tools from the respective AFS Connect and MyPLM Connect platforms into a single streamlined management solution, using data from farm operations, even for those with multi-branded fleets.

“Agriculture is changing rapidly, and farmers are increasingly asking us to support them with simple solutions for complex problems,” New Holland brand president Carlo Lambro said. FieldOps was created thanks to our customers’ feedback, prioritising simplicity and intuitiveness of the interface. It enables farmers to improve their efficiency and profitability, whether they’re investing in a new fleet or adding automation to their existing machines.”

FieldOps mobile and web apps are currently in the final stages of development and testing, with a full release expected later in the year.
