Trimble connects auto-status, Android platforms for ready mix operations

Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) said it has released its Trimble® TrimFleet™ Mobile Connect for ready mix concrete operations.

The solution is an extension of the TrimFleet Mobile software suite that is wirelessly connected to the Trimble TVG850 telematics device. It is the first Androidâ„¢-based application to provide auto-status technology throughout the ready mix delivery cycle.

TrimFleet Mobile Connect provides valuable information to drivers, dispatchers and management within ready mix operations. Drivers using TrimFleet Mobile Connect no longer have to initiate status updates throughout the delivery cycle and can access CoPilot® Truckâ„¢ navigation, text and voice communications, driver ID and delivery information on an Android display. Leveraging the TVG850, TrimFleet Mobile Connect can decrease driver interaction associated with push-button solutions and offer more reliable status and communications via the telematics device´s onboard WiFi and cellular capabilities.

With TrimFleet Mobile Connect, dispatch and management benefit from more accurate status updates sent automatically to TrimView, Trimble´s office software solution for improved construction logistics management.

Trimble Construction Logistics Division provides real-time vehicle telematics, driver-safety monitoring, voice and text communications, business intelligence and analytics, vehicle diagnostics for maintenance and fuel tracking, as well as performance reporting solutions specifically designed for the construction materials industry.

Founded in 1978, Trimble is headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif.
