John Deere launched its MyMaintenance mobile application, which enables users to view and document maintenance intervals by calendar date or by machine engine hours. According to the company, the app works exclusively for John Deere equipment with active JDLink telematics subscriptions.

The MyMaintenance app allows users to view machines enrolled in a maintenance plan through the app’s “Maintenance Manager” that are due for maintenance or past due for maintenance.

Features of the app include a list of machines enrolled in a maintenance plan and a map view of those machines, barcode scanning of a machine’s PIN number to view its maintenance plan, and a list of tasks associated with each service interval. Users can also track maintenance costs for labor and parts and document completed maintenance tasks.

“The MyMaintenance app gives users a plethora of information at their fingertips, including the ability to view equipment on a map, look at machines nearby, barcode scan a machine to see maintenance plans, access a parts list for maintenance and the ability to keep track of maintenance costs,” says Paul Garcia, product manager for John Deere WorkSight. “The application allows managers to view machines enrolled in a plan through ‘Maintenance Manager’ that are due or past due for maintenance to efficiently increase uptime and performance. Repairs can also be documented even for machines not enrolled in a maintenance plan, and documenting a machine’s maintenance history can help drive higher residual value.”

MyMaintenance is available for download in the iTunes store and the Google Play Store. This mobile application joins a number of other John Deere mobile apps, including the GoHaul app for ATD operators, the John Deere App Center for equipment users and the JDLink app for contractors.
