WINNIPEG, Manitoba and AMES, Iowa – July 22, 2019 — FarmCommand® today unveiled a fleet management program that expands digital connectivity across all assets and machinery used for farm operations. Connecting another layer of fundamental decision support to FarmCommand™, the company’s farm management platform, Farmers Edge has introduced a new on-board diagnostics device CanPlugX™ to their suite of hardware to capture data from grain carts, delivery and service trucks, construction equipment, irrigation systems, and more. Designed for retailers, equipment dealers, and large farms with complex and distributed operations that rely heavily on a broad ecosystem of service providers, the fleet management tool provides real-time insights to reduce costs, improve logistics, and create stronger digital connections between all stakeholders.
“This fleet management program is the next ground-breaking addition to the industry-leading, data science and AI platform FarmCommand. Whether you are a retailer with a mixed fleet of sprayers, floaters, tender trucks, and light duty vehicles, or a sugar mill with irrigation pumps, pivots, tractors, and combines, our new fleet management program integrates weather data, high-resolution, high-frequency satellite imagery, and advanced predictive models to power the future of optimized logistics routing, workflow, and reporting,” said Ron Osborne, Chief Strategy and Product Officer.

Fleet Management Program Provides Real-Time Farm Insights to Drive Productivity and Profitability
With CanPlugX™ devices installed on every vehicle on the farm, stakeholders gain a 360-degree view of their operation for better tracking and improved risk management. This connectivity allows users to protect their most valuable assets, including: staff, equipment, inventory, and land, by being alerted to any conditions that present a hazard to health, safety or productivity. Access to detailed reports and usage statistics help to identify how each vehicle is being used, and by whom, to drive more informed logistical decisions that maximize ROI and lead to better financial performance.
The fleet management program is available for early access release. To sign up, please visit: www.FarmersEdge.ca/FleetManagement or find us at InfoAg Conference in booth 96/97 on July 23-25, 2019.
