New Holland has announced its first major update of 2021 for the MyPLM Connect Farm desktop platform and mobile app, said to give producers more power and flexibility to manage and monitor their operations anytime, and from anywhere.
The latest update includes support for prescriptions, tillage and large square balers, along with new layer visuals, machine utilisation maps and more. The software is developed to provide users with a continually expanding feature set at no cost to them.
“Connectivity is becoming an integral part of a farmer’s operation, as they are increasingly relying on their machines to collect data, just like we do with our smartphones in our daily life. That is why we have included MyPLM Connect telematics as base equipment on all the T7 and CR ranges,” said Alessio Quatraro, New Holland Connected Services product manager, Europe.
“At New Holland, we are providing our customers with the most intuitive solutions to get the job done easily. Since we integrated the AgDNA cloud-based Farm Management Information System now known as PLM Connect into MyPLM, we have continued to improve and extend data visualisation and compatibility. The improvement to the MyPLM Connect portal is another step forward in providing our customers with the best tools to monitor and visualise the data collected in the field through their connected machines.
“We also redesigned the interface in the MyPLM Connect Farm app to enhance our customers’ user experience as they use it in their daily life. This is a fundamental element in the customer journey. We are constantly working to improve our digital products to meet the different needs of farmers,” he said
Enhanced user interface
The latest update provides access to a wide range of field information when they select a map from the main screen. Users will now be able to view field-specific data, such as activity layers, scouting observations and soil zone data. Field and vehicle data will also easier to access, with complete field and vehicle lists included.
Additionally, operators will be able to view imported data and display activity layers regarding large square balers. It will also be possible to select specific bale drop locations, with a pin indicating where each bale is placed in the field. Users will be able to see individual bales and specific data for each one, including wet/dry weight, moisture percentage, density, capacity and flakes per bale.
Operators can create a free account at mynewholland.com and download the MyPLM Connect Farm mobile app for Apple and Android devices. Data collected is secured in the MyPLM Connect cloud.
