– John Deere Dealers Take Advantage of Data-and-Analytics Platform Integrated with Operations Center to Add Value, Strengthen Customer Relationships–
BOULDER, COLO., November 30, 2016 – Agribotix,™ a leader in drone-enabled agricultural intelligence, announced that integration of its platform with the John Deere Operations Center has led to significant expansion of its international customer base, from North America to the South Pacific. The US-based maker of the award-winning Agribotix FarmLens™ SaaS platform that helps farmers increase yields and reduce costs said that its growing client roster includes the top two John Deere dealers in Australia, as well as dealers in Canada and the US market.
Battle River Implement, an Alberta, Canada-based customer of Agribotix and a John Deere dealership, integrates via John Deere’s API Services. “We chose Agribotix FarmLens data processing plus its Agrion™ agricultural drone system to offer our customers an affordable tool to help optimize their yield,” said Matt Hansen, Integrated Solutions Manager. “Agribotix delivers superb Digital Scouting Reports, and pushing that data into their John Deere Operations Center account provides substantial value for farmers.”
Battle River is the most recent addition to the growing list of dealerships that are finding Agribotix solutions provide significant incremental benefits to their grower-customers. In addition to a substantial and growing base of Deere dealers in the US and Canada, Agribotix also works with other Deere dealers around the world.
Emmetts, a Deere dealer in Australia and one of Agribotix’s oldest customers, appreciates the increased customer interaction and value FarmLens delivers. “We selected Agribotix solutions as a way to increase the value we provide to our growers,” said Matt Burns, Precision Ag. Solutions Manager with Emmetts. “By offering drones and field-specific analytic reports that integrate with the customers’ John Deere Operations Center account, we’re able to deliver insights to customers’ production practices to assist with data-enabled decision making. The grower benefits from making well informed decisions, and Emmetts benefits from a stronger relationship with growers.”
“Our goal is to make the Agribotix solution painless for John Deere dealer customers to adopt,” said Jason Barton, VP of Sales for Agribotix. “Not only is our Agrion drone system built on the easy-to-operate DJI™ PHANTOM™ 3 drone, we have also integrated FarmLens with the Deere Operations Center farm management software system.”
The integration allows a user to push the Agribotix Digital Scouting Report directly into their Operations Center account. This report, the most intuitive and effective in the drone analytics market, combines whole-field evaluations with field-specific weather data and location-tagged photos and comments from scouts or agronomists. Agribotix offers a full range of “agriculture-only” products designed to boost a farmer’s bottom line.
