Free JDLink™ connectivity service

JDLink™ Technology FREE to Construction & Forestry machine owners

The need for increased productivity in construction and forestry work is ever increasing. Technology and specifically connectivity are key enablers in sustaining your operations. With that said, technology solutions can sometimes be overwhelming and confusing with all the different levels of subscriptions and functionality. Looking at what the market offers, you are sometimes pulled into spiraling thought process of cost vs value and not able to determine if you will see return on your investment. When you do not have experience in the solution it puts you in a difficult position to quantify the true value it will unlock for your operation and we at John Deere get that.

Every individual operation may see the value of a solution like JDLinkTM differently. Therefore, we believe that the best way to communicate the true value is for you to experience it yourself at the lowest risk possible.

The value JDLinkTM unlocks is twofold:

Remote machine support and adjustment:

You and your trusted advisors will be able to continuously monitor machine usage, access the machine remotely and make adjustment to optimise performance remotely. The connectivity also feeds machine diagnostic data to the cloud to predict potential failures based on Machine Learning models and global machine usage data.

Data connectivity:

Ultimately you are working on delivering successful and profitable outputs every year. Precision practices are becoming more relevant and require a lot of data to be transferred between the field and your advisors with you in the middle. JDLinkTM eliminated the need for you managing countless emails and USB drives to deliver prescription maps to machines. It also enables automatic uploads of data to Operations Center (cloud-based system) for you to analyse right there or seamlessly share with third-party applications through the Connections functionality in Operations Center.
