AGCO, AgIntegrated In Strategic Partnership
By Mike Osenga29 May 2018
AGCO Corp., Duluth, Ga. has announced a development partnership to deliver agricultural information management systems services to its customers,
The partnership, with agricultural technology company AgIntegrated (AGI), State College, Pa., is expected to enable AGCO customers to connect more easily with agronomy service providers, create data connectivity, and digitize the farm.
The new services, launching in North America this year, will complement the fleet and operational services already available through AGCO’s Fuse Connected Services offering.
The partnership between AGI and AGCO will bring multiple new Advanced Programming Interface (API) connections to offer AGCO’s customers more choices for wireless data transfer needs. Rather than needing multiple communication paths between technologies, AgIntegrated’s Onsite QC Pro data hub provides a neutral platform to streamline agronomic data transfer. This will enable easier data flow and better decision-making for its customers, AGCO said.
AGCO customers can connect to the Onsite QC Pro data hub using TaskDoc Pro, VarioDoc Pro, and Go-Task wireless data transfer products, depending on equipment brand and model. These wireless data transfer pipelines offer customers “a seamless integration from their machines to multiple Farm Management Information Systems (FMIS), allowing farmers the opportunity to send their agronomic data to and from AGCO machines and their preferred agronomic partners,” AGCO said.
This partnership gives AGCO’s customer access to any FMIS, either through a direct connection into AGI OnSite ecosystem, or direct download and upload. AgIntegrated and the Onsite QC Pro provides AGCO customers with direct access to mixed fleet clouds.
