PLM® Connect

Agriculture is constantly evolving, and split second decisions have an enormous impact on your business’ profitability. New Holland’s goal was to place farm managers and contractors in every field, even when they are sometimes hundreds of miles away. This is now possible thanks to PLM® Connect. Using mobile phone technology, users receive dynamic, real-time information. This can be for every machine working in their field and you can analyse that data to make correct decisions for each and every machine in each and every field.

PLM from the clean energy leader

New Holland is committed to improving the environmental profile of farming and PLM forms a key element of this strategy. By reducing in-field passes considerable fuel savings can be achieved, which consequently reduce your farm’s carbon footprint. But that is not all, by controlling inputs, such as fertilisers, the environmental impact of farming is cut considerably. After all, that’s what you’ve come to expect from the Clean Energy Leader.
