HQ Sync Tunes Assets and Jobs to Streamline Workflow - 02/01/2012
Hemisphere GPS and AgSync, Canada, have announced their partnership and the release of HQ Sync: a bridge between the Hemisphere GPS HQ real-time web-based asset-tracking tool and the AgSync work-order management system. HQ Sync tracks the position and position-related data of aircraft and other assets, such as spotter vehicles and loader trucks, and is thus targeted at saving time and money for agricultural aviation companies.
AgSync uses their latest technology to streamline crop protection and fertiliser application processes. By connecting the two, HQ Sync gives application companies tools to manage complexities including communication, application scheduling, state permit reporting, billing, record keeping, regulatory management, and asset tracking.
Aerial application companies will realise greater communication with their customers, improved organisation and communication with the pilots, efficiency and safety through improved flight planning, and better ground crew information and preparation. Application planning is streamlined and input costs are reduced significantly as a dispatcher can better manage work orders and direct the aircraft to avoid duplicate or inaccurate applications. Viewing real-time information, communicating scheduled and completed work immediately, and being able to review previous flight data also allows companies to verify work is being done properly.
Greg Guyette, general manager of the Air Business Unit at Hemisphere GPS explains the significance of HQ, which facilitates at the jobs are created from the truck or coffee shop, a bill is sent the same minute the job is finished with thorough statistics of precisely what was done and where.
HQ Sync will be featured at aerial application shows around the country in 2012 including the Texas Agricultural Aviation Association's Convention in Fort Worth, TX on January 4th and the Arkansas Agricultural Aviation Association's Convention on January 8th. HQ is currently available for Hemisphere GPS air products through their global dealer network. Hemisphere GPS will link HQ to AgSync for all AgSync customers upon request, connecting Hemisphere GPS hardware directly to the services of AgSync.
