Working with John Deere, Fusionware customers gain ability to optimize on and off-farm operations.

The John Deere Operations Center is an online farm management system that allows management and access to farm information anytime and anywhere.
Operations Center allows farmers to analyze their past work to better plan future passes and gr owing seasons—the precision ag aspect; and farm management is achieved allowing the operator to save time and money by planning field work before equipment reaches the fields.
Fusionware, a leading end-to-end 'cloud-based' supply chain platform for North American growers, has recently integrated with the John Deere Operations Center precision ag, data management software. This partnership further empowers Fusionware users with increased ability to optimize on and off-farm operations.
With this new API integration, Fusionware simplifies data acquisition for farm managers, agronomists, and data analysts.
Fusionware is now able to sync on-farm data seamlessly, and track machine data from the Operations Center software for total run-time, idle time, and location. For precision ag metrics, data includes acres planted by field, seed spacing, and harvest data, syncing the Fusionware data with John Deere's data sets.
Fusionware said that since 2020, its focus has been to optimize the entire farming operation by minimizing duplicate input into multiple systems.
"With pressure on labour and cost of goods, farming operations are constantly under incredible pressure to operate as efficiently as possible with constant staffing issues and multiple software solutions to keep updated and maintained," explained Creg Fielding, the founder of Fusionware. "With this integration, Fusionware clients can now centralize data input between John Deere Operations Center and the Fusionware Data Ecosystem, creating a unique data set for business intelligence without duplicate entry."
Added Travis Allen, the IT Director with Black Gold Farms, a fourth-generation, North Dakota farm that prefers to utilize high technologies: "Fusionware has been helping us digitize and move our physical operations’ data to the cloud for several years. This integration is yet another step forward, providing us with complete visibility for enhanced connectivity and more informed decision-making."
