Trimble Launches Global Safety Initiative to Help Fleets
"Trimble's initiative will focus on expanding its safety solutions for fleet and mobile workforce management. The purpose is not only to help fleets become safer, more efficient and productive, but to allow companies to better partner with their insurance providers to reduce risks," said Rick Beyer, vice president of Trimble's Mobile Solutions segment. "Trimble's DriverSafety solution enables organizations to actively reduce hazardous driver behavior, which can lead to reduced costs associated with vehicle accidents and negligence suites. It also promotes behaviors that can increase fuel efficiency and further reduce fuel expense and environmental impact."
Trimble GeoManager is an on-demand fleet productivity and management solution that integrates GPS, vehicle diagnostics, driver computing, wireless communications and a hosted software application suite. Trimble Mobile Resource Management (MRM) solutions are designed to automate the management of mobile resources and to optimize the service delivery process for customers across a variety of industries. Trimble delivers MRM solutions on a global basis to vertical markets which include: global communications, construction supply, field service, and transportation and distribution. Trimble MRM solutions are designed to provide a secure, scalable, upgradeable, enterprise-class platform, and are offered in on-demand software delivery, on-premise or hybrid environments that can seamlessly connect mobile workers in the field to real-time data. More information about Trimble MRM solutions can be found at: www.trimble.com/mobile_resource_management.
The new Trimble DriverSafety solution is expected to be available in November 2010 as a stand-alone solution or bundled with Trimble GeoManager services.
Trimble applies technology to make field and mobile workers in businesses and government significantly more productive. Solutions are focused on applications requiring position or location—including surveying, construction, agriculture, fleet and asset management, public safety and mapping. In addition to utilizing positioning technologies, such as GPS, lasers and optics, Trimble solutions may include software content specific to the needs of the user. Wireless technologies are utilized to deliver the solution to the user and to ensure a tight coupling of the field and the back office. Founded in 1978, Trimble is headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif.
