John Deere Construction has extended the availability of its machine monitoring system, JDLink, to select mobile devices.
The free JDLink mobile application allows contractors to access John Deere’s proprietary system to keep tabs on machine location and alerts via their iPhone, iPad, or Android devices. Customers can use a demo function to explore the features provided before subscribing for an account. The application includes a number of interactive JDLink features, including:
- Multiple machine mapping
- Directions to machines
- Ping and share locations of machines
- View and acknowledge alerts
“We know our customers are constantly on the go and have limited time to track entire fleets, even when they can manage from their seats via the JDLink website,” said Liz Quinn, product marketing manager, John Deere WorkSight. “Not only does the application utilize important features of JDLink, it also alerts customers of an issue in real time, even when they’re away from the office.”
JDLink is one of five technologies incorporated within John Deere WorkSight. The WorkSight suite of technology solutions assists in business optimization and also incorporates Fleet Care proactive machine health program, Service Advisor Remote dealer diagnostics, grade control, and payload weighing.
