Hemisphere GPS and AgSync, Inc., announced their partnership and release of HQ Sync — a bridge between Hemisphere GPS’s HQ real-time Web-based asset tracking tool and the AgSync work order management system. HQ Sync offers agricultural services targeted at saving time and money for agricultural aviation companies.
HQ allows companies to track the position and position‑related data of aircraft and other assets, such as spotter vehicles and loader trucks. AgSync uses its latest technology to streamline crop protection and fertilizer 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 realize greater communication with their customers, improved organization 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 because 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.
HQ is currently available for Hemisphere GPS air products through its 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. For more information visit www.hemispheregps.com/hqsync .
