SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 24, 2009 – Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) today introduced the Trimble AllTrak Asset Management System for contractors to manage their construction equipment and tools such as drills, ladders, compressors, nailers, and consumables. With accurate tracking information about asset usage, contractors can increase their efficiency while confidently managing acquisition, maintenance, and eventual retirement of their tools, equipment, and other portable assets.
The announcement was made at the Trimble Building Construction Boot Camp 2009, a field-based, hands-on training event for the building construction industry.
Leveraging Proven Trimble Hardware with Innovative New Tracking Software
Construction contractors invest thousands of dollars annually on buying, renting, and servicing their tools and equipment. Trimble AllTrak increases the return on their investment by improving asset utilization and monitoring equipment to avoid loss or misplacement.
The Trimble AllTrak system leverages the wireless connectivity and barcode scanning capabilities of the rugged Trimble Nomad controller. Using the Trimble Nomad and Trimble AllTrak Mobile software, tool crib managers can perform essential transactions such as check-in, check-out, transfers and additions from anywhere. This advanced tracking information is particularly useful for managing rental tools and equipment and prorating costs. Users can set up visual and email reminder alerts for rental return dates and track total rental cost versus asset value ratios.
Users can also produce accurate real-time reports to identify inventory that is under utilized, at the end of its life cycle, costing money, or making money.
Trimble AllTrak is available now from select dealers in Trimble™s North America construction distribution network.
