Latest Free Update to Whirl App Adds Task Management to Wheelman Autosteering
Scottsdale, AZ, September 12, 2019 — AgJunction Inc. (TSX: AJX), the Autosteering Company™ ("AgJunction"), has announced that task management is now available for the WheelmanTM Pro and Wheelman Flex products with the latest free update to the WhirlTM app.
The new task management feature helps farmers keep track of the different tasks they perform when using Wheelman on their farm. Farmers can track name and type of task, crop worked, implement used, date, duration, AB lines used and more. Once a task is underway, farmers have the flexibility to easily pause, resume and complete the task.
“We’re excited to bring the task management feature to our farmers,” said Jeff Morris, chief marketing officer of AgJunction. “With the addition of task management in our Whirl app, it makes it easy for farmers to track the details of the tasks they perform when using Wheelman in their farming operations.”
Farmers will benefit from the task history feature included in task management. Task history allows farmers to quickly access, review and reuse past tasks, including the AB lines used. Now, farmers can accurately stay on the same AB lines, year after year.
“Our goal is to continually provide up-to-date technology to our farmers at no additional cost,” said Morris. “Soon farmers will be able to access their tasks from any internet browser with the introduction of Whirl Online, in the near future.”
Ultimately, Whirl Online will be a one-stop for farmers to store and access all of their Whirl data, including tasks, while maintaining it on their Whirl app for easy retrieval and consultation out in the field.
Whirl is compatible with the Wheelman lineup of simple, affordable autosteering systems that can benefit every farm. To purchase or learn more about Wheelman Pro, Wheelman Flex or Whirl, visit www.HandsFreeFarm.com.
