HORSCH launch HorschConnect – digital intelligence for farming

LinkedIn +

HorschConnect is a new product family from Horsch that aims to make the exchange of data between machine and customer as efficient as possible, as well as to link customer, dealer and Horsch in a better way. Whether locating the current position of the machine in the field or controlling a seed drill with an app, this can be carried out with HorschConnect.

HorschConnect focuses on the benefits of connectivity and digitalisation. It includes the increasing digitalisation of Horsch machines, using apps like MobileControl app to control the machine via a smartphone or the HorschConnect Telematics Portal to record telemetry data. HorschConnect optimises the flow of information to ensure customers are better informed.

Optimise working processes

Using HorschConnect, a farmer can see machine information, such as operational speed or the application rate, in a user-friendly format. Instructions can be sent to the machine to optimise working processes and increase efficiency. Remote diagnostics of machine information and error messages allow for a proactive and targeted service.

For example, a machine can be calibrated quickly and intuitively via the app and all the product information is available to hand.

Using an integrated WLAN and GPS modem, the SmartCan hardware solution connects the machine to the internet or a smartphone. An integrated memory card guarantees an additional data back-up if there is no mobile network coverage.

HorschConnect is available across the full Horsch seed drill and sprayer ranges and will be compatible with other external systems in the future. Horsch is not creating an isolated solution but will focus on compatibility and connectivity to other control systems and telemetry. This will create a significant step forward in digitalisation, automation and improved productivity.
