DULUTH, Ga. - Monday, January 26th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE) AGCO (NYSE: AGCO), a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, today announced its AGCO Parts Books to Go™ mobile application program has significantly expanded AGCO’s parts mobile app functionality. A year ago, the AGCO Parts Books to Go™ mobile app initially successfully launched on the Apple iOS platform into 35 countries through the Apple Store. Now even more robust, today’s mobile app launch represents advancement in providing anytime, anywhere access to replacement service parts information on AGCO products.
Already established in the mobile space, the AGCO Parts Books to Go™ is now available in both the Android and Apple iOS platforms, with the new Android version of the app available on the Google Play Store. Its functionality includes similar Interactive Parts Catalog functionality like the Apple iOS app while maintaining the natural Android user experience. Interactive drawings with capability for zooming, panning, and call-outs; parts lists; Google-like searches; cart functionality; off-line capability and multi-language support are part of this newly delivered Android app. The Apple and Android versions are now available for customers and AGCO dealers/distributors.
AGCO is committed to supporting parts service for the duration of the service life of AGCO machines. Besides the Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra brands, content on the Apple and Android app is now expanded to include parts book information for many of AGCO’s other brands— like Gleaner®, Fella®, Laverda®, Hesston®, Ag-Chem®, Spra-Coupe® and more. Language support has also expanded. Initially released in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Finnish and Italian, support is now extended to accommodate Chinese, Turkish, Polish, Russian and the Scandinavian languages.
AGCO anticipates that this robust offering will bring much stronger parts service support to help customers when replacement parts are most needed.
"As part of AGCO's continuous efforts to improve electronic parts books delivery for our dealers/distributors and end customers around the world, we are excited to launch the next iteration of our advanced mobile parts app," explained Mr. Boris Schoepplein, vice president of Global and EAME Parts.
