Relationship overview

Challenge

John Deere is a global leader in agricultural technology. They needed to design and build solutions to power their growth and accelerate their digital transformation. That meant finding the right partner—one who would become an expert in their business, not just the tech. One who would always go the extra mile to add value. In short? A partner fully invested in their values and shared success.

Solution

One team. One vision. That’s the trusted partnership we’ve created with John Deere. So it’s no wonder our relationship has deepened over the decades. The secret to our mutual success? We embody John Deere’s five principles for partnership excellence. That means they guide what we do and how we work together—and we always move in lockstep.

We collaborate with Directors, Engineering Managers, Group Engineering Managers, and Product leadership at John Deere to uncover powerful goals. We drive business agility by asking the right questions, prototyping early and often, and iterating to get the right solutions out faster. And when it comes to suggesting new ways to drive their business, we never hold back—even if that means less work for us.

Results

We’ve built technology solutions that power core operations at John Deere: sales and marketing, order management, supply chain, dealer network and warranty, and more. And we’re making continuous improvements that solve business problems, minimize the total cost of ownership, and keep their business on the cutting edge. Over decades, our innovative solutions have supported billions of dollars in sales and procurement and are often benchmarked by other Fortune 100 companies.

The icing on the cake? John Deere has recognized Aquent Studios with their Partner Award for Achieving Excellence for 18 consecutive years. That’s not only a record but a testament to how critical we’ve become to their success.
