Dec. 12, 2017 - John Deere has announced its new TimberOffice Data Transfer (TODT) app, a free smartphone application available for iOS or Android devices which simplifies data transfer from forestry machines to the office. The app, now available for Cut-to-Length forestry machines, allows the user to secure production and work statistics, even when used in a working environment with weak or non-existent mobile service.

“We wanted to provide a solution that allows users to easily transfer the data they need to successfully manage their business – even when working outside of cellular service,” said Matt Flood, John Deere ForestSight product manager. “TimberOffice Data Transfer turns a smartphone into a temporary storage device that automatically transfers the data when cellular connectivity is reestablished.”

Use of the TODT app, developed exclusively for John Deere customers, simply requires users to plug a TODT Wi-Fi device into their TimberMatic measuring and control system, creating a connection between the app and the machine. Once the connection is established, data is transferred to the mobile device with a single touch. When a mobile network is available, the TODT app automatically sends selected data to pre-assigned emails or production management systems, without requiring the user to go back into the app.

The app, which can collect data from multiple machines, enables faster data utilization to help customers improve machine productivity. TODT utilization also results in increased production awareness and efficiency from the jobsite by sharing data on potentially more frequent intervals than ever before.

To learn more about or download the TimberOffice Data Transfer app, please visit the Apple iTunes store or Google Play store.
