Deere and Verizon Partner on Connectivity
Telogis, a Verizon Company (NYSE: VZ – $47.07), announced that it is partnering with Deere & Co. (NYSE: DE – $88.30) to enable construction companies to derive key data and insights from their connected John Deere equipment to help drive cost savings, efficiency and productivity. Through this alliance, Telogis and John Deere will enable existing and future mutual customers to leverage John Deere construction equipment’s built-in connectivity. Customers will benefit from access to data that will help eliminate manual data entry and generate deeper insights into customers’ operations. Customers also benefit from the ability to connect back into JD Link to order parts and service or contact local John Deere dealers for questions and equipment troubleshooting. They will also receive more accurate equipment maintenance records that can help lead to better uptime and lower total cost of ownership. Customers can also take advantage of the Telogis Mobile Resource Management software platform’s comprehensive feature set, such as jobsite utilization alerting and reporting that features engine hours, whether equipment is being fully utilized, fuel consumption and details on diagnostic codes. Both positions can be held in their respective portfolios.
