So much has gone into the planning, preparing and programming of Trimble Ag Software — we wanted to make sure that once you got a taste of the full scope of this platform, you’d be as excited as we are. To coincide with today’s exciting announcement, I wanted to let you in on some of the background, rationale and industry trends that led us to conclude that the world wasn’t just ready for Trimble Ag Software — it needed it.
Trimble has been keeping a close eye on the move toward precision agriculture and food traceability, and this software rises to the challenge that both of these industry shifts present. First, our software arms farmers with the easy-to-use, mobile-friendly data platform that facilitates their move into precision management, a strategy that simultaneously promotes productivity, profitability and environmental sustainability. Second, Trimble Ag Software also responds to the growing push by consumers — and, as a result, by regulators — to more clearly understand through documentation exactly how their food was produced.
Please spend some time on our new website to find out how Trimble Ag Software addresses today’s needs of farmers, crop advisors, ag retailers and food processors. It lays the foundation for success all the way up the food chain.
The birth of this new cutting-edge platform began to take shape with Trimble Ag’s recent strategic acquisitions of three strong, industry-leading software products: Connected Farm®, Farm Works Software® and Agri-Data® Solutions. Connected Farm was the first simple, grower-based precision mapping solution since it’s inception in 2009. Farm Works has been the leading desktop farm management software since it was launched in 1992. Agri-Data was the first and leading web-based grower field management system since it began serving farmers and advisors in 2002.
These three packages have been combined to create an end-to-end solution that has all the power and speed of a desktop farm management package, combined with a web solution that offers data sharing and multi-user access as well as other web-based tools along. To top this off, Trimble Ag Software includes a mobile app with the rigour, scope and adaptability worthy of today’s most savvy farmers.
