New Search Function in the Database

Since mid September the AEF ISOBUS Database has additional ways of selecting products for the Compatibility Check. Until today users could only search by manufacturer, and then brand. But now they can also start by choosing a product category and, in the next step, a functionality they would like the product to support. For instance, a precision drill supporting TC-BAS. The database will then only show those manufacturers offering products that match the criteria.

Another new option to check the compatibility of products is to start directly by selecting a functionality. This will take the user to a list of corresponding categories to choose from, i.e. all categories containing products that support this exact Functionality. Again, another click will only show manufacturers with products matching the criteria. An example here could be manufacturers selling Pull Type Sprayers that support the functionality TC-SC.
