LAS VEGAS, Feb. 2, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today the release of its Trimble® TrimFleet™ Mobile Connect for ready mix concrete operations. The solution is an extension of the TrimFleet Mobile software suite that is wirelessly connected to the Trimble TVG850 telematics device. It is the first Android™-based application to provide auto-status technology throughout the ready mix delivery cycle.
The announcement was made at World of Concrete 2016, one of the largest international exhibitions for the construction industry. The new TrimFleet Mobile Connect is being demonstrated at the Trimble Construction Logistics booth N1037 in the North Hall.
"As technology continues to evolve, the industry is seeking solutions that enable improved efficiency and productivity," said John Rice, general manager of Trimble's Construction Logistics Division. "With TrimFleet Mobile Connect, our customers have a solution that automatically collects and shares data on an extensible platform so that intelligent business decisions can be made quickly and easily."
TrimFleet Mobile Connect provides valuable information to drivers, dispatchers and management within ready mix operations. Drivers using TrimFleet Mobile Connect no longer have to initiate status updates throughout the delivery cycle and can access CoPilot® Truck™ navigation, text and voice communications, driver ID and delivery information on an Android display. Leveraging the TVG850, TrimFleet Mobile Connect can decrease driver interaction associated with push-button solutions and offer more reliable status and communications via the telematics device's onboard WiFi and cellular capabilities.
With TrimFleet Mobile Connect, dispatch and management benefit from more accurate status updates sent automatically to TrimView, Trimble's office software solution for improved construction logistics management.
