Fendt Future Farming:
Intelligent machine management with Fendt Connect

The efficient use of machines is decisive when it comes to estimating business costs per hectare and hour of operation. For this reason, AGCO/Fendt is constantly working with technical solutions that help customers use their machines efficiently and save valuable working time. The new digital platform Fendt Connect is designed to help farmers and contractors to monitor, analyse and manage the condition and use of their machines.

Farmers, plant managers and contractors can check the activities and data of their own Fendt machines on the PC, via the smartphone app or on the tablet: Where are my machines? How long do they need for specific work? How profitably are we using our machines?


Use the Fendt Connect App (for iOS and Android) to view fuel consumption, speed and working time of each machine in real time. A map view also shows the position of the vehicle, the driving directions of the machine and its status report. The Fendt Connect User can get information about upcoming service intervals or error messages from the machine.

By documenting the machine activities, you can organise a company's or contractor's entire fleet. Operating times, uptime and machine utilisation are better managed by evaluating the data. Dates for maintenance intervals can be planned effectively from your desk. With Fendt Connect, farmers and contractors are in a position to analyse and optimise how their machines are used. This increases economic efficiency and saves time and resources.

In 2018, Fendt Connect will be trialled with more than 100 selected customers. To use this app you need an integrated ACM Box (AGCO Connectivity Module), which transmits relevant CAN-BUS parameters and machine data to the Fendt Connect digital platform. The ACM Box comes as standard on Fendt Ideal combines and as an optional extra for the Fendt 500 to 1000 Vario tractor series.

Data security

The Fendt Connect app will initially be in English, German and French. As a trusted brand of agricultural solutions, data security is extremely important for Fendt. Fendt Connect is subject to strict European IT security standards.
