STEYR launches smart FieldOps app and reaches agreement with satellite leader Intelsat

Steyr Unveils Precision Technology Updates Featuring New Steyr FieldOps App

STEYR has launched the „FieldOps“ app, a new „all-in-one“ mobile and web solution specifically designed for farmers to connect, view and manage their operations.

FieldOps provides real-time access to agronomic, machine and operational data, connecting farmers to their machines, fields, teams and partners, and enabling them to gain actionable insights.

The new „FieldOps“ app comes at a crucial time, when the number of machines that can connect to a single network is growing rapidly. All information can be accessed via the cloud, reducing costs and increasing productivity. It also enables agricultural machinery dealers to better serve farmers, reduce downtime and increase operational efficiency.

However, STEYR points out that there are still serious constraints for farmers in remote areas who want to connect their machines to a common network, as there is no developed cellular or terrestrial network available to remote operators. Their ability to digitise and connect their fleets of machines is very limited.

Steyr has therefore taken an important step towards improving connectivity for operators worldwide. Through a strategic partnership with „Intelsat“, a renowned leader in satellite communications for more than 60 years, STEYR ensures that operators, regardless of their location, can take full advantage of STEYR's FieldOps capabilities with constant and reliable Internet access.

„STEYR prioritises the seamless integration of precision technologies for our customers“, said STEYR EMEA CEO Marco Lombardi.

Main features of „STEYR FieldOps“:

Data Visualization: Instant access to real-time agronomic data and machine insights, including exact location and work status, current machine parameters, estimated time to complete a job, 24-hour history, and more.

Machine Analytics: Users can proactively monitor the health of machines and quickly spot priority issues, and report on them with customised notifications. Data from individual seasons and years can be viewed for any specific area, increasing operational efficiency.

Remote in-cab display: more in-depth machine monitoring and easy coordination with operators, including the ability to suggest changes.

One simple and comprehensive solution: „STEYR FieldOps“ brings together the tools of the „AFS Connect“ platform into one simplified management solution that leverages data from the farm operation, even for those with multi-brand fleets. This makes it easier for farmers to access their field and farm data on one platform. STEYR FieldOps is designed to be simple and easy to understand for users at any level.
