THE ESSENTIALS OF PLM™ CONNECT

ULTIMATE MACHINE SECURITY
Enhance your machine’s security with geo-fences and curfews. With geo-fencing technology, you can predefine working areas for your machines and receive alerts if they leave this area. You can also set curfews so that you are alerted if your machines are used outside of the predefined working hours.
PLM Connect Essential is your eyes and ears in the field. You can remotely monitor where your machines are and proactively plan where they are going to best optimize the utilization and productivity of your fleet.
This feature alerts you when planned maintenance is due so that it can be scheduled for the most convenient time. You can also see real-time vehicle status through your PLM Connect virtual dashboard, which enables you to monitor key operating parameters to maximize efficient farming.
PLM Connect Essential technology enables you to compare and contrast the results from different fields and with different operators. By analyzing this data, you can then ensure that best practice is replicated across the entire farm to maximize productivity and profitability.
