TrimTrac Pro Locator Added to Trimble Construction Manager Solution
TrimTrac Hardware Now Available with Trimbleďż˝s Turnkey Construction Asset Management Solution
SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 2008 — Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) today announced the addition of the TrimTrac® Pro Locator as a hardware enabler for Trimble® Construction Manager, a turnkey solution for managing construction assets to realize improved productivity, utilization and overall efficiencies in construction operations.
The TrimTrac Pro device’s compact form factor and simple installation, along with the powerful asset management features of the Trimble Construction Manager software, allow contractors and construction rental companies to monitor their smaller portable assets such as skid loaders, backhoes, compressors and generators. And with the CrossCheck® mobile locator hardware for larger pieces of equipment, users benefit from enabling their entire fleet with a single solution to monitor and improve their construction operations.
The TrimTrac Pro device utilizes Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, a motion sensor and General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) wireless technology to monitor equipment activity. Key data is transmitted to the Trimble Construction Manager data center for access to a variety of charts and reports, including display of daily activity, asset utilization and hours of use for preventative maintenance. Users can drill down to see detailed information for one asset or view multiple assets for side-by-side analysis. In addition, users can be notified by email and SMS message when certain conditions exist, such as a movement alert with a curfew time period for theft recovery, or when the power source has been disconnected.
In addition to supporting the TrimTrac Pro hardware, Trimble Construction Manager version 2.1 has been enhanced with several major features including a report that supports the requirements for the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for off-road machinery emission reporting.
“Trimble Construction Manager is an integrated solution for contractors to improve their operations by providing quantitative up-to-the-minute information,” said Daniel Wallace, business area manager for Trimble Construction Services. “With the addition of the TrimTrac hardware, contractors and construction rental companies have flexibility in the hardware they choose to enable their operations with Trimble Construction Manager. All of the information is available in one interface to compare asset activity regardless of the hardware installed, providing the complete picture needed for comprehensive construction fleet management unparalleled in the industry.”
