BETTER CONNECTIONS: New Holland has announced the first major update of 2021 for the MyPLM Connect Farm desktop platform and mobile app.
New Holland has announced the first major update of 2021 for the MyPLM Connect Farm desktop platform and mobile app.
The update includes support for prescriptions, tillage and large square balers along with new layer visualisations and machine utilisation maps.
New Holland connected services product manager for Europe Alessio Quatraro said improved connectivity was becoming an integral ongoing part of a farmer's operation.
"They are increasingly relying on their machines to collect data, just like we do with our smartphones in our daily life," he said.
"That is why we have included MyPLM Connect telematics as base equipment on all the T7 (tractor) and CR (combine harvester) ranges.
"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.
"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.
"With the latest update to the MyPLM Connect Farm app, users have access to a wealth of field information when they select a map from the main map screen.
"With just a few taps, users can now view field-specific data, such as activity layers, scouting observations and soil zone data. Field and vehicle-specific data is more accessible than ever with complete field and vehicle lists," he said.
"Users of large square balers will now be able to view the imported data and display activity layers in MyPLM Connect Farm.
"Additionally, users can now select the specific bale drop location. Once selected, a pin will show the location of each bale within the field.
"The user can view individual bales and specific details by clicking on the pin for the given bale.
"Displayed information for each bale includes wet/dry weight, moisture percentage, density, capacity and flakes per bale.
"New Holland invites its customers to visit MyNewHolland.com and create their free account, allowing them to fully experience MyPLM Connect with their own operation's data.
"Customers can download the MyPLM Connect Farm mobile app on their Android or Apple IOS device for free, to keep their operation running smoothly anywhere, anytime," Mr Quatraro said.
