Vertex Software, Inc. announced that they have been selected as a supplier to Deere & Company, a leading global manufacturer of agricultural, forestry, and other heavy equipment.
John Deere employees will use Vertex to access the state of the factory, service needs for equipment, forecast planning, and gather information about how equipment functions in real time. They can access the content on any computing device in seconds, including tablets, laptops, and smartphones, the new partners note.
Vertex’s purpose-built software will support John Deere’s Industry 4.0 initiatives, including Smart Connected Factory programs, by delivering real-time, actionable 3D data across manufacturing and business operations, they claim, adding that their 3D Platform dramatically reduces the time, cost, and effort needed to use 3D visualizations across the manufacturing value chain. The platform will help John Deere build and deploy fit-for-purpose apps that deliver decision-making systems with rich, interactive 3D content.
“For the first time, manufacturers have a truly effective way to leverage their 3D-data assets beyond engineering,” said Dan Murray, CEO & founder of Vertex Software. “We’re like Netflix for CAD. You can now reach everyone, everywhere, instantly with 3D.”
