John Deere partnered with HCSS (Heavy Construction Systems Specialists), a management solutions provider, to enhance the capabilities of John Deere WorkSight and to put JDLink data in the hands of customers.

According to John Deere, the partnership stems from the Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) actively working with major machine manufacturers to standardize telematics data available for integration into other applications.

“Our partnership with HCSS empowers customers to leverage the existing telematics connection on their John Deere equipment and see their JDLink machine data in the powerful HCSS tool suite in conjunction with other telematic brands,” says Liz Quinn, product marketing manager of John Deere WorkSight. “In addition, customers will be able to easily link from the HCSS application to the environment when they need to order parts, manuals or have a closer look at a John Deere machine in the JDLink Dashboard.

“Seeing all brands of telematics data in one application optimizes a customer’s fleet management decisions and eliminates manual data entry and jumping from one manufacturer’s portal to the next,” Quinn adds.

HCSS provides a suite of construction solutions for both operations and equipment management, John Deere says. Utilizing HCSS’ innovative software with OEM telematics data integrated, customers will have direct access to data such as meter readings and location. Customers also will have access to information such as fault codes, utilization hours and fuel consumption data for their entire fleet, regardless of the manufacturer.

“Integrating JDLink with the HCSS portfolio gives our shared clients an edge by leveraging data to make more informed decisions to drive productivity, which is critical on the jobsite,” says JP Giometti, HCSS director of strategy and R&D.
