Fleet Analytics Manager™ to Help Ag Retailers Increase Visibility, Reduce Machine Downtime & Become More Efficient

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Dec. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Raven Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:RAVN) announced today a new suite of fleet management tools to be added to its world-class Slingshot® portfolio. The added functions will enhance Raven’s Connected Workflow™, a streamlined solution for ag retailers to sync their office to the field.

The Slingshot® platform now includes Fleet Analytics Manager™, a robust reporting tool which provides insight on an operation’s entire fleet and system. The tool can analyze current and past Slingshot® work orders and report on data such as acres covered or machine usage. In addition, notifications will now alert users on system events tied to any Raven hardware connected to the machine. The alerts are customizable and will be available by user type, criticality, location and system.

“These new tools are capable of completely optimizing an ag retailer’s operation,” said Paul Welbig, Director of Slingshot® Services & Logistics. “The addition of the Slingshot® Fleet Analytics Manager™ further enhances Raven’s deep commitment to the ag retailer and our Connected Workflow™ solution. We are seeing ag retailers gain complete visibility into their operation for the very first time, allowing them to make informed decisions and ultimately maximize their bottom line.”

“Gaining visibility into our fleet performance beyond the engine hours and into the operational efficiencies is going to be a game changer for our organization,” stated Neal Hiemstra, Agronomy Logistics Manager at Agtegra Cooperative.

The added functionality is available in the Slingshot® Portal now for early adopters. Users can learn how to trial the features by visiting ravenslingshot.com/fleet-analytics-manager.
