AECOM Selects Trimble Software to Manage Global Construction Projects Across Markets
Enterprise Agreement Covers Products Including Proliance, SketchUp Pro, Tekla, Vico Office, Quantm, Modelogix,WinEst and More to Help AECOM Streamline Services Throughout Project Lifecycles
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 14, 2014—Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) announced today that AECOM, one of the world's largest providers of professional, technical and management support services for transportation, facilities, environment, energy, water and government, will deploy several solutions from Trimble's Design-Build-Operate (DBO) software portfolio to improve project workflows, increase visibility and accuracy, and enhance team collaboration for construction projects.
The multi-year agreement covers a variety of software offered by Trimble Buildings, a Trimble group focused on making the construction industry significantly more productive through advanced, accessible, and intuitive technologies for project professionals and stakeholders. AECOM has opted to procure Trimble software on a subscription basis, allowing the company flexibility to easily scale its active subscriptions in line with project and program needs around the globe.
In addition, AECOM will expand its current use of Trimble's Proliance® enterprise capital program management software. The software combines capital planning, project and program management, business process management and analytics into one system of record, enabling asset owners to control program delivery and track how their real estate, construction and facilities portfolios are performing across the plan-build-operate lifecycle. AECOM will use Proliance as a platform to support more efficient standardization of large project and program management assignments globally.
AECOM also plans to provide on-demand access to the following software across its organization to deliver a powerful, synchronized suite of services to its client base:

We're excited to collaborate with a customer whose vision of service to the construction industry so closely matches our own."
