Data Dives

posted on Thursday, May 31, 2018 in Blog

Does your farm have issues managing fields and keeping data consistent? Are you entering in new names for every piece of equipment and field every year? Do you want to view your data after you record it? Do you wish you were more organized when field operations begin every year? Would you like to have your data available on your PC, Mac, tablet, and smart phone?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have the perfect solution for you! True North Equipment will be hosting complementary Data Dive sessions at a our retail locations the next few months. These sessions will help you get the most out of John Deere's Operations Center (the online farm data manager that will be replacing APEX) by giving you an in-depth look at how this system works. In addition to a class session, there will be an open discussion to go over specific questions and examples.

What is the Operations Center?

  • Online software to manage equipment information, production data, and farm operations from a single website.
  • A tool that allows you to collect data more easily, access it more readily, and analyze it more effectively.
  • A single sign-in for multiple John Deere applications.
  • And much more!
