New Trimble Productivity Module Enables Real Time Grading and Compaction Control Analysis

Contractors Can Get More Productivity from their Machines and Report Progress Faster

DAYTON, Ohio, July 10, 2007 - Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) today announced the release of the Trimble Productivity Module as part of its Connected Construction Site solutions. The Productivity Module is a new component of Trimble SiteVision® Office version 7.0 and delivers new functionalities for monitoring and analyzing earthmoving machine productivity. With this new capability, heavy and highway contractors can assess project status, optimize earthworks machine usage, and drive increased productivity from their equipment fleet.

The announcement was made today at Trimble's Construction Boot Camp 2007, a field-based, hands-on training event for the construction industry.

The Productivity Module compiles and indexes data collected on machines using the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System and the Trimble CCS900 Compaction Control System. Collected data includes information about machine productivity—system utilization, mapping of graded areas, and terrain logging of all excavated data—in addition to last pass information and machine-specific productivity statistics. The collected data can then be queried for productivity statistics and progress volume information based on time, particular machine or operating area in the Productivity Module. With this information, the contractor can make better informed decisions on fleet usage, machine configuration, and project scheduling.

The new Productivity Module for Trimble SiteVision Office version 7.0 is now available through the Trimble worldwide distributor network.
