Over the past 175 years, John Deere has seen many changes in its business, products, and services. Remarkably, they have always evolved to meet whatever new challenges arise. Our partnership has added to this tradition by guiding John Deere's latest pivot to position themselves as the market leader in agricultural data services. Together, we’re tackling the future of farming.
John Deere Vision for the Future
Becoming the leading agriculture data provider requires foresight. We helped define John Deere’s internal vision to become a family of products that will increase the efficiency of customers across the entire John Deere ecosystem. Getting support from the full enterprise is no easy task, but now John Deere has its goals and dreams for the future in sight.
We took on the challenge to modernize John Deere’s backend server technology stacks. We created deprecation plans for outdated tech and built development pathways, allowing their backend services to leapfrog to modern APIs. Now, John Deere is set up to create common core APIs for use across all of their software services worldwide.
Core SDK Integration
To boost growth, John Deere needed a way to expand their systems into third parties. We analyzed their systems to build stable, API-enabled, open interface components, ready for third-party app integration. These powerful integrations will give John Deere broader reach and invite new innovation into their customers’ fields.
LEAN AG App
Borrowing from LEAN Manufacturing practices, we built an app that enables large farm operations to work more efficiently and produce a greater yield, from planting to harvesting—even remotely. With a flexible, real-time management solution, farmers can seamlessly upgrade their operations.
Building on the success of their AgLogic web portal, John Deere needed a way to bring that intelligence into the field. We created a mobile solution that puts work orders, time tracking, GPS information, and flexible management tools right where farm operators need them. We not only enabled easier tracking and management but better business decisions across the farm.
JDLink™ Telematics System Management
Our team simplified the task of monitoring and managing John Deere machines outside the office. We built an intuitive interface that lets farmers quickly understand everything they need in one place. With remote display access, alerts, and machine location, this app turns a field of disparate machines into a streamlined operation.
