Trimble Partners With Twisted Pair To Launch Communication Platform For Construction Materials Industry

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today its Trimble® TrimFleet™ Communicator. Partnering with Twisted Pair Solutions, a recognized leader in mobile workforce communications for secure, real-time voice communication, TrimFleet Communicator integrates Twisted Pair's WAVE® software with Trimble's fleet management solution, providing integrated push-to-talk (PTT) voice communication specifically designed for the construction materials industry to enhance system performance and collaboration.

The announcement was made today at World of Concrete 2013, the industry's annual international event dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction industries. The new TrimFleet Communicator will be demonstrated at the Trimble Construction Logistics booth (N815).

"Excellent communication between the field and office is vital to our customers' success," said John Rice, general manager of Trimble's Construction Logistics Division. "By recognizing a need for improved communications between dispatchers, mechanics and truck drivers in the materials industry, we were able to create a solution, incorporating WAVE software, which provides easy, integrated real-time voice communication to help improve delivery efficiency and fleet management for our customers."

Trimble's TrimFleet solution—including TrimView, TrimFleet Mobile and now, TrimFleet Communicator—allows TrimFleet users (e.g. delivery drivers, mechanics, site project managers or dispatchers) the ability to communicate with the right individuals or teams of workers in real-time with a PTT device. The solution improves workflow, project accuracy and delivery speed by providing dispatchers with an automated, real-time interface for monitoring vehicle location and delivery status for individual fleets. Trimble's solution also enables fleet managers to send and receive messages to fleet crews, generate reports and adjust delivery schedules. Now, with WAVE at its core, TrimFleet Communicator provides fleets with an added capacity to engage in real-time voice communication over 3G as an integrated system capability, making it a complete solution for exchanging critical information in an organized way.

"Trimble's TrimFleet Communicator can be instrumental in helping to change the communication and collaboration paradigm for the construction materials industry, bringing groups of people closer together through a single communication platform," said Ryan Buma, Twisted Pair vice president of Sales and Marketing. "With TrimFleet Communicator, fleet owners and operators have an alternative to traditional carrier PTT or expensive two-way radio systems with an integrated solution that improves real-time communication and collaboration while offering significant cost benefits."

Using WAVE software, TrimFleet Communicator provides fleet operators with a seamless, integrated solution that can eliminate legacy two-way radios and other mobile voice solutions. TrimFleet Communicator unifies communication throughout the enterprise, helping the construction materials industry leverage existing investments to make quick and intelligent decisions that can decrease operational costs and improve customer satisfaction.
