Trimble Delivers Proliance 5.7 Software with Enhanced Support for Global Project Teams and Scheduling

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 12, 2014Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced Proliance® 5.7—the latest version of its software for managing capital planning, building construction, and renovation processes across large infrastructure programs. The new release features a range of productivity and usability advancements—including scheduling enhancements, support for multiple languages on a single project, user level localization preferences and increased configurability.

Proliance software is used by construction asset owners and managers to plan, track and measure performance of their construction portfolios. By combining capital planning, business process management, project management and analytics into a single, easily accessible system of record, Proliance enables owners and their supply chain managers to better control scope, costs and schedules, and keep programs on track. 

“In an industry of increasingly complex construction projects spanning time zones and geographies, the need for a global collaborative program management application has never been greater,” said Geene Alhady, general manager of the Owner Division within Trimble Buildings Group. “Proliance 5.7’s new capabilities make it easy for project team members—no matter where they are in the world—to connect and work together, ensuring that everyone has the information they need to move the project forward.” 

Enriched Global Platform Support at the Project Level

Proliance 5.7 builds on existing multi-language capabilities and now offers project team members in different regions the ability to collaborate on a single project in their own familiar language. In addition, each user can choose how they want to view the calendar, date, currency and numeric formatting through their user preferences. 

Activity Workflow Integration

Proliance 5.7 presents an enhancement to the scheduling module that allows teams to connect schedule activities with the Proliance workflow engine. Organizations can now automate schedule updates as an activity moves through the business workflow. Each task is enabled with a specific role and participant-based security to ensure that accountable parties perform task updates; this can result in reliable schedule updates and improved visibility and control. 

Proliance was developed by Meridian Systems (now part of Trimble Buildings Group). The software’s Schedule module enhancement, Global Project Team support, and extension of User Defined Field Extensions add to a comprehensive yet intuitive set of features, and provide additional ways for users to leverage Meridian’s more than 20 years of expertise in software for managing capital construction programs. 

The new capabilities in Proliance 5.7 add to an already robust feature set, including: a workflow engine that provides views of planned and historical workflow processes; flexible, secure information sharing for cross-project contracts and budgets; and the ability to view both summarized information at an organizational level as well as specific project and program details.

“As the industry moves toward integrated team planning, the schedule itself is becoming an essential tool for communication and collaboration,” said Gordon McNeill, Proliance product manager. “Proliance now provides all team members with visibility into their project commitments and allows their updates be immediately reflected in the overall plan. This allows for early detection and mitigation of schedule delays.”  

Proliance 5.7 software is available now. Additional information on Proliance features may be found at:
