Trimble Introduces ConnectedTablet for Ready Mix and Aggregate Fleets

LAS VEGAS, March 7, 2017—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced the Trimble® ConnectedTablet, a ruggedized mobile computer for fleets in the ready mix and aggregate materials industry. The announcement was made at ConExpo 2017, one of the world's largest international exhibitions for the construction industry.

"The Trimble ConnectedTablet gives our customers an additional choice when selecting an in-vehicle display for their fleet," said Jeff Van Grootel, director of product management for Trimble Construction Logistics. "Not only will this portable tablet enable users to improve productivity inside and outside of the cab, but it also has the strength to withstand the extreme environment of the construction industry."

The Android-based ConnectedTablet connects wirelessly to the Trimble Vehicle Gateway (TVG) and provides a rich in-cab experience for the operator, including features such as in-cab navigation with CoPilot® Truck™ from ALK Technologies, Hours of Service (HOS), daily vehicle inspection reports and text and push-to-talk voice communications. The TVG uses GPS technology and cellular data to provide vehicle tracking with real-time updates on location and events, using a combination of automated geo-based statuses for site arrival and departure and sensor-based automated statuses for load and unload events.

"Pairing the ConnectedTablet with the TVG gives fleets the combination of a rugged device and a powerful software platform, enabling them to maximize efficiencies, improve customer service and increase safety for their drivers," said Van Grootel.
