BRISBANE/HEERBRUGG, December 10, 2012 — Leica Geosystems has introduced Virtual Vista, a new web based platform that delivers a flexible data management solution to farmers.
Virtual Vista offers a simple solution which connects directly to the Leica mojo3D. Through the built-in modem of the Leica mojo3D farmers can access the service within a few steps; no additional hardware has to be purchased.
Initially Virtual Vista provides users with a convenient overview about activities in the field. It enables customers to monitor their fleet by combining real time and historical information with the use of Google Maps. Features such as geo fencing and curfews allow a new level of fleet management and can be easily activated with just a mouse click.
What sets Virtual Vista apart from other online farm services is its simplicity. Users don’t need to manage a complex menu structure to use the service. The intuitive design of the platform ensures an easy understanding for a best possible user experience.
The success of Leica Geosystems has been built on innovation. In 2007, Leica Geosystems changed the agricultural guidance scene by introducing Virtual Wrench, the agriculture industry's first web based remote service, support and diagnostics tool, which reduces costs associated with downtime.
“We see Virtual Vista as the next logical step, delivering additional user benefits from the built in connectivity of the Leica mojo3D. We believe that providing customers with online access to their devices will bring new efficiencies to guidance systems. It will influence farmers on the same scale like mobile phones, leaving us wondering how we ever did without them.” said Robert Johnson, Product Manager at Leica Geosystems Agriculture.
The power of Virtual Vista is set to grow throughout 2013 with more innovative features primed for release. These updates will automatically become available to all registered users of the platform.
Registration for Virtual Vista is available for all Leica mojo3D users in January 2013, on the website www.virtualvista.com. After creating an account, users can link their Leica mojo3D devices and start using the service instantly. To use the service customers only require a personal active cell network data plan.
