Ag Leader Announces New AgFiniti Remote Support

Ag Leader has announced that AgFiniti Remote Support allows dealers to connect to a user’s display for viewing and troubleshooting from any location in real-time. This service makes it possible for farm managers, dealers, and support technicians at one location to view an Ag Leader Integra or Versa display in a client’s equipment at another location.

User down time is also reduced as dealers can remotely view the display, rather than travel to the location for service. With an Ag Leader Integra or Versa display, USB Wi-Fi adapter and a license, AgFiniti users can access the remote display-viewing feature through Ag Leader’s AgFiniti Cloud-Based Platform. Remote Support from Ag Leader will be available in early 2014. Read more
