New Software-as-a-Service Solution Provides Easy, Scalable, Project-based Field Management
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 6, 2015—Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) announced today Trimble® ProjectSight™, a cloud-based solution for construction field management that simplifies the creation, access and sharing of project information between the field and the office. The new solution provides mobile workers with access to up-to-date project information and smart workflows for increased productivity and more informed decision making. Trimble ProjectSight allows contractors to lower software costs while enabling a wide team of collaborators to access the information they need.
Trimble ProjectSight is designed for contractors and construction managers who want an easy-to-use and cost-effective field management application. Accessible via a Web browser or an iPad app, ProjectSight features a simple, intuitive user interface overlaying smart, project-based workflows to keep teams in sync. Access to centralized data provides users with up-to-date information related to material tracking, issues reporting, information requests and critical project drawings, models and documents. Fully functional offline capabilities allow information to remain available during unconnected sessions commonly encountered on construction sites.
ProjectSight joins other solutions in Trimble's portfolio for managing construction project logistics, budgets, estimates, schedules, coordination and change in both 2D and 3D datasets. ProjectSight leverages the new Trimble Connect collaboration environment for design, engineering and construction firms. Trimble Connect enables teams to access and manage any data via a cloud platform and specifically allows ProjectSight users to access and share project management data with Trimble Connect users across the design-build-operate lifecycle.
"Effective project management is critical to the profitability of any construction project," said Mark Sawyer, general manager of the General Contractor / Construction Manager Division of Trimble Buildings. "With Trimble ProjectSight, we now offer a solution that addresses the core functions of project management in a very easy-to-learn, easy-to-use and easy-to-deploy system. ProjectSight ensures workers have access to accurate, up-to-date information and it puts that information in the hands of highly distributed teams at very low cost."
Trimble is offering ProjectSight on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) subscription basis. Project information authors pay a low monthly subscription and can invite an unlimited number of project collaborators to view and annotate their files and forms at no cost.
Trimble ProjectSight is available now for a 30 Day free trial. Additional information can be found at: http://projectsight.trimble.com. Users may also download the free ProjectSight iPad app from the iTunes App Store.
Trimble will host a webinar at noon EST on Tuesday Jan. 13, including a demonstration of key features. Registration details are available at: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/320764233.
