LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Trimble announced that it is consolidating three of its agriculture software products — Connected Farm, Farm Works Software and Agri-Data solutions — into one farm data management platform called Trimble Ag Software. This all-in-one tool offers customers a complete desktop, web-based and mobile-enabled agricultural software solution that simplifies farm data management to drive productivity, profitability and sustainability for farmers, crop advisors, ag retailers and food processors.
Trimble Ag Software offers an integrated desktop, online and mobile solution to assist farmers in viewing recommendations from their trusted advisors and making quick adjustments when necessary, viewing historical application records and tracking fleet locations with status updates.
Amid the current shift toward precision agriculture practices, farmers are also running into hurdles with technology integration. When farmers mix precision farming hardware and software with third-party vendors, the results can lead to lost time due to data re-entry, USB data transfer or multiple support entities.
To combat these barriers, Trimble Ag Software seamlessly integrates with its hardware solutions as well as with other third-party manufacturers using Trimble’s API. By using one technology platform, supported by a global Trimble Vantage distribution network, farm data can now flow wirelessly across the entire farm and to trusted advisors. This provides timely crop input recommendations and eliminates data re-entry, saving time and reducing potential errors.
“In the consumer smartphone market, people are looking for hardware and software that works well together and makes life easier — the same is true for farmers,” said Benjamin Allen, enterprise solutions manager for Trimble’s Agriculture Division. “Agricultural technology can be very complex and farmers are adopting solutions that ease data transfer and provide enhanced mobile functionality.”
