AFS Connect Basis

​The AFS Connect Basic offers fleet management capabilities, machine location tracking and a working status overview. Knowing exactly where your tractor or combine is – in which field and in which part of that field – allows you to guide trailers or fuel supplies exactly to the right spot. No time is wasted whilst the efficiency of man and machine is kept at their maximum. With the AFS Connect Manager, you can be alerted when your machine leaves a designated area. In addition to security benefits, this also allows you to guide operators to preferred routes and instructed areas – particularly helpful for inexperienced staff or contract services.

AFS Connect Advanced

​The AFS Connect Advanced package includes all the features and abilities of the AFS Connect Basic plus various other helpful management and analysis possibilities:
•Compare data from different machines and identify areas of possible improvement where one machine is performing better than another.
•Having operating data instantly at hand, as well as access to performance and set-up figures from previous working periods for the same or similar machines, provides aid for new or inexperienced operators and enables them to quickly increase their efficiency.
•AFS Connect messaging allows farm owners and managers, as well as Case IH dealer technicians, to send advice directly to the machine’s display – so operators can improve their performance on the move.
