A sales enablement tool that empowers dealerships to compare equipment interactively across customers’ actual fields.
With Equipment Explorer, dealership teams can use Launch Pad to unlock the comparative value of any machine, implement, and proprietary guidance equipment.
The tool enables dealers like you to match the size and functionality of your products to the scope and complexity of your customers’ farming operations.
Confidently and accurately showcase the operational and financial impacts your products have on your customers’ actual fields across any operation.
Benefits of Equipment Explorer for Dealers
Compare Equipment Performance
Use Equipment Explorer with new and existing clients and work with their specific fields to present the advantages of exchanging an implement for an improved model (i.e.: larger, more powerful, etc.). Equipment Explorer also allows you to showcase differences in number of tracks used, operation time, total distance travelled, and fuel consumption for your clients’ fields based on the type of equipment used.
Demonstrate the value of higher accomplishment rates in Launch Pad and help a farmer operate more acres with the same equipment, or maintain the same coverage with a smaller line of machinery.
Guidance Receiver Subscriptions
Create custom equipment path plans for your clients’ fields and showcase the value of upgrading to higher accuracy guidance receivers and subscriptions. To do this, just adjust the track spacing in Launch Pad to account for the inherent overlap that’s required for lower accuracy.
Use the calculator function to add different costs on Launch Pad’s Compare Page and illustrate potential savings. Show field level costs and compare against multi-year subscription fees.
In crop production, finishing in the field in good time is key, whether that’s hitting the ideal planting date to drive yields higher or completing harvest in ideal weather conditions. Compare equipment scenarios with Equipment Explorer, including straight and turn speed, to showcase time saved for each operation with different equipment.

What our partners and
customers are saying.
"Operations always trumps Agronomy". Following Agronomic practices can be complex with a lot of correlations required to monetize the benefits, but anybody who sits in the seat of a piece of equipment grasps the concept of path planning and how it benefits operations. The first adoption of Digital Ag should be Path Planning. Launch Pad does just that.
Path planning for agricultural field operations is a core activity that has a major impact on minimizing economic (fuel, inputs, and time) and environmental (emissions, soil erosion, and water run-off) costs for the farmer. The team at Verge are the first ones to develop a truly interactive web application that integrates all the complexities of path planning in an accessible way to drive farmer adoption. We believe this will be game changing for farmers.
As we looked to continue to grow with our customers and meet their evolving needs beyond our traditional markets of sugarcane and rice, we saw the need for a planning tool that was more intuitive and agile for the farmers. The team at Verge Ag and their Launch Pad software were right on the mark and so bringing our businesses together made perfect sense.
I will no longer farm without Launch Pad. Full stop. We pride ourselves on running a tight operation and being very efficient with our units. We didn’t even realize how much more productive our machinery could be.
VERGE AGRICULTURE CASE STUDIES
Our goal is to help farmers focus on what really matters: their family farms and how they can maximize their operation. Our case studies demonstrate our approach and the capabilities of Launch Pad, our farmtech solution.
THE VALUE OF PATH PLANNING
The size of machines used for agricultural field operations has increased steadily over the past few decades in order to reduce labor costs and allow the farmer to efficiently manage larger plots of land.
