Remotely manage machines and operators

As operations grow, keeping a pulse on what is happening with equipment and operators at any given time becomes more of a challenge. The John Deere Operations Center makes this easier with features such as Location History, Remote Display Access, and MyOperations and MyAnalyzer apps that allow a manager to see what is going on anywhere, anytime they choose. With a bird’s-eye view of the farm and the ability to remote view into the cab, the Operations Center is an essential tool for today’s progressive grower.

Connected software applications

Growers do not farm alone. Growers collaborate with retailers, input providers, software companies, and many others to farm precisely. John Deere recognizes that growers must quickly and easily share their farm data with partners in order to make timely and accurate decisions. Enabling software applications to directly connect to the John Deere Operations Center allows growers to collaborate with their preferred partners. For needs that are not met with a John Deere solution, John Deere encourages growers to identify a connected solution.

Software collaborators gain access to John Deere technology once they have completed all steps on John Deere’s production checklist and signed the requisite agreements with John Deere. Access to John Deere technology does not require a commercially available product. Product availability is controlled by the individual companies.

For more information on connected software products, please visit the MoreTools page within Operations Center, or go to the direct link at: https://MoreTools.Deere.com.

As of October 2016, the following software applications have integrated with Operations Center by completing all steps on the production checklist and signed the requisite agreements with John Deere:

Collaborate with staff and partners

Growers rely on many people inside and outside of their organization such as staff, John Deere dealers, agronomists, landlords, and crop input manufacturers to help them make decisions about their agronomics, machines, and more. The John Deere Operations Center makes the process of sharing machine and agronomic data easy and customizable. In the Operations Center, growers can establish a sharing relationship with staff and partners and electronically share a view of their operational information automatically. This allows them to better control and secure their data while making it available to those who can help them gain insights that increase productivity and reduce costs.

Optimize in-field work

Achieving optimal yield and reducing waste are important for a manager. Mistakes on the job can be costly to yield, waste inputs and time, and ultimately affect profitability. Managing this stage of the operation can be chaotic, inefficient, and cause a manager to be on the phone for hours per day trying to coordinate work, monitor progress, and make sure the job gets done right. It takes numerous meetings, phone calls and even field visits, which are all prone to miscommunication and costly errors and delays.


Replace lists and phone calls with the jobs panel, various jobs tool in the Operations Center, and the MyJobs App on a mobile device. A job is simply a complete list of all tasks with all the necessary instructions to execute the job accurately—right product, right field, right time, and right settings. After the field is complete and data is sent in, the grower or partners can review map layers to ensure work was completed as intended and make adjustments in the next fields.


Value in brief:

  • Reduce the risk of yield loss by ensuring quality job execution
  • Increase productivity and reduce operational costs
  • Enable in-field adjustments to the plan to quickly respond to environmental and logistical changes


  • Add a job with specific work instructions like task, field, machine, product, rate, and notes
  • See planned job list in job panel
  • Quick status in Job Panel and Job Marker
  • Track daily totals and productivity Job Summary in Job Panel
  • Share job functionality with trusted partners through permissions sharing functionality
