Tool quantifies telematics ROI for customers

By |  March 8, 2016

John Deere announced that its JDLink return-on-investment (ROI) estimator quantifies the value of keeping machines connected using JDLink.

According to Deere, the ROI estimator is part of a bigger effort to continuously educate customers on technology and its benefits in improving productivity, uptime and lowering daily operating costs.

Using the new tool is easy, the company says. Customers visit and fill in customer operational input functions, including average fuel cost, estimated idle time percentage, and desired idle time percentage.

From there, a final value percentage is calculated. Customers then enter their specific fleet information, including models, number of units and estimated working hours per day. Once all information is entered, a calculate function quantifies the return that can be realized by making changes in the way a customer’s machines are operated.

“Renewing JDLink licenses and upgrading the hardware can be a significant expense depending on the size of your machine fleet,” says Paul Garcia, product manager of John Deere WorkSight. “The return on investment calculation is intended to demonstrate the value of using JDLink to optimize our customers’ operations.”
