Scheduling within Oracle E-Business Suite
 

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 12, 2009 — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL), the world's largest enterprise software company, has developed an extension which allows Oracle Field Service Applications (part of Oracle® E-Business Suite) users to add Trimble's GeoManager™ solution to create an enterprise-level intelligent scheduling and dispatching platform for field service organizations. The on-demand location-based features of GeoManager will allow organizations to improve fleet performance and the management of mobile workers and distributed assets.

"By developing an extension for Trimble GeoManager, Oracle E-Business Suite Field Service can now take advantage of real-time location information to increase field workforce productivity and streamline call dispatch operations," said Steve Tonas, vice president of Oracle's EBS CRM Applications.
