Trimble Launches Trimble Connect, New Cloud-Based Collaboration Platform for Construction and Operation of Buildings



Sunnyvale, Calif. — Oct. 31, 2014 — Trimble has introduced Trimble Connect, a powerful cloud-based collaboration platform that empowers teams involved in the design, construction, and operation of buildings.

Based on GTeam software from recently acquired Gehry Technologies, Trimble Connect streamlines workflows and transforms collaborative processes, allowing teams to access, analyze, manage, and share project data from anywhere at any time.

As a hub for Trimble Buildings' portfolio of Design-Build-Operate (DBO) technologies, Trimble Connect enables seamless interoperability for designers, builders, and owners/occupiers — while also providing benefits to teams involved in site preparation and management.

"Trimble Connect creates communities of collaboration across and within disciplines, integrating data from Trimble's wide variety of applications and devices to reduce the barriers between teams and tasks," said Bryn Fosburgh, vice president responsible for Trimble's Construction Technology Divisions.

"This new platform not only reinforces Trimble's leadership as a provider of advanced software and hardware, but positions us to transform the way the world designs, builds, and operates buildings through collaboration."

Trimble Connect provides coordinated information for everyone across the DBO continuum, streamlining the process of combining Building Information Modeling (BIM), 3-D and 2-D models via the Web, improving coordination among dispersed offices and teams, and reducing costs for software and training.

In addition, the platform's storage and archiving of project documentation allows team leaders to keep track of their staff's progress remotely. Trimble Connect also centralizes all digital assets across a project portfolio, allowing project managers and building owners to audit and report on all past and present project data and activity.
