Useful FAQ about the new NEXT Farming world.

Q: Will the desktop software soon no longer be available?
A: The desktop software will remain, but you will have the option of using additional cloud functions. This is of course optional. Merging the product lines allows you to create individual solutions for your requirements.

Q: What happens to my data when I start working across systems? Willmy data then also end up in the cloud?
A: Of course, you retain control over your data and decide whether your data is stored on your own computer or in the cloud. You must actively agree to this in the software (e.g. by ticking a box). However, some services are only available via the cloud.

Q: Will everything be more expensive from now on?
A: No, by merging the product lines, we can make you various offers that meet the appropriate cost-benefit ratio for you.

Q:So what's new?
A: You have the opportunity to use more functions because two systems have become one. There are now additional applications, which we will be happy to present to you at the DLG Field Days. We have been offering our customers various comprehensive solutions for 30 years. Under the joint brand NEXT Farming, we are moving into the future of digitalized agriculture together with our customers.

Q: What is special about FarmFacts and NEXT Farming compared to other software manufacturers?
