NEW Gatekeeper Integration with John Deere

NEW Integration “a real turning point” 

Andrew Wolff, Arable Product Manager, Farmplan

In 2006, Gatekeeper boasted the only UK software with integration to the John Deere GS2 2100/2600 controllers. Since then, the two companies have launched a raft of successful collaborations with John Deere’s later in-cab controllers and online offerings.

Now, Gatekeeper will once again spearhead the industry, as it launches the integration with My John Deere’s work planning module this month.

The move will see Gatekeeper showcase its versatility again, as it will become the first software provider in the UK to integrate with John Deere’s Operation Centre Work Planning API, which allows the export of work plans.

Andrew Wolff, Arable Product Manager at Farmplan, says of the development: “Now, users in Gatekeeper can add, amend and pass on Gatekeeper work plans wirelessly to the My John Deere system.”

“This completely streamlines the workflow process, from recommendations to work plans and having it checked by operators in My John Deere before then sending it to the cabs – it’s a real turning point.”

But even beyond ease of use and time saved, Andrew says there are huge operational advantages: “Work plans issued from the office can now be modified on the fly by operators dealing with the ever-changing working environment, and that’s going to change the entire system for the better – I’m looking forward to seeing the positive difference this will make to every step of the process.”
