Trimble Introduces Digital Pen Solutions Designed
Trimble Digital Pen Solutions Automate Paper-Based Documentation,
The announcement was made today at the Trimble Building Construction Boot Camp 2009, a field-based, hands-on training event for the building construction industry.
Ideal for superintendents, supervisors, engineers, foremen, safety inspectors, crew chiefs, detailers, construction managers and project managers, the Trimble Digital Pen Solutions allow project team members to simultaneously collect form and markup data using individual pens and print outs. Digital notes, sketches, data and markups can be aggregated into the original file, tracking data by user, pen and time. The digitized data can be pasted into emails or stored on centralized networks to consolidate and share information among teams.
The Trimble Digital Pen Solutions leverage the Capturx technology—a jobsite proven technology used by hundreds of organizations to automate paper-based data collection. A broad range of industries and agencies use Capturx products as natural interfaces into Microsoft Office and CAD systems through digital pens.
The Trimble family of Digital Pen Solutions for the contractor includes:
"The Trimble Digital Pen Solutions further our commitment to provide construction customers with innovations to increase productivity," said Pat Bohle, general manager of Trimble's Building Construction Division. "These simple solutions work the way our customers work. They also seamlessly integrate changes and ensure more efficient collaboration so that design and building project teams can reach decisions faster."
Trimble Digital Pen Solutions are expected to be available during the third quarter of 2009 through Trimble's worldwide Building Construction Distribution Channel.
