John Deere Golf and OnLink Introduce OnEquip
Cary, N.C. (December 5, 2017) – John Deere Golf and industry leading golf course performance optimization software company, OnLink (formerly OnGolf USA), introduce OnEquip. With OnEquip, golf courses can now integrate equipment fleet data into OnLink’s performance optimization platform for a comprehensive picture of course performance.
The new OnEquip component of OnLink allows golf course operators to manage and gather data on their equipment fleet, including maintenance scheduling, parts management, and uptime/downtime reports. Consistent with the overall OnLink platform, the OnEquip program works with all equipment manufacturers and vendor suppliers.
“The collaboration between John Deere Golf and OnLink provides course operators with the ability to make data-driven decisions,” said Dave Plaster, sales manager for John Deere Golf. “With the integration of fleet data into OnLink, users can truly have a comprehensive view into what’s happening at their course.”
The OnLink golf course management platform makes it easy to collect data and manage decisions on labor, water, chemicals and nutrients, and playing conditions. The innovative platform also offers the industry’s most precise and accurate weather forecasting service. Now with OnEquip, decision makers can have fleet data at their fingertips.
“OnLink users will now have an end to end fleet management solution that includes accurate cost of equipment ownership combined with agronomic practices which influence operational usage and efficiencies, said Walt Norley, CEO and founder of OnLink. “We have a significant product development roadmap for OnLink, and will continue to evolve OnEquip in collaboration with both our customer base and our strategic partner John Deere Golf.”
OnGolf’s proven, results-oriented strategy has been implemented by both industry renowned courses, as well as courses needing to do more with less. In less than two years, OnGolf users have identified more than $1 million in savings.
“We are excited about the future direction we are taking with OnLink as we begin the process of providing better data to golf course superintendents and fleet managers,” added Plaster.
