Cloud platform for digital transformation of construction

cloud

A new cloud platform launched by Trimble aims to streamline construction projects by linking project teams, data, processes and multiple stakeholders across all phases of construction projects.

Trimble Construction Cloud powered by Microsoft Azure aims to advance technology adoption and accelerate the digital transformation of the construction, agriculture and transportation industries. 

“Trimble Construction Cloud enables customers to accelerate and deliver improved business outcomes with data from native Trimble and ecosystem of services,” said Jennifer Lin, senior vice president and chief platform officer for Trimble. “It empowers project teams to design, construct, operate, collaborate and learn with live data sharing. This unique approach leverages connected workflows, precise spatial data and constructible models to modernize the entire ecosystem and accelerate customer success. We’re excited to help customers and partners achieve more productively and sustainability than before.”

Trimble Construction Cloud includes rich field data, estimating, detailing, project management, finance and human capital management solutions. The new platform includes four main functions designed to automate the flow of data and decision-making for more efficient and predictable business outcomes:

Common Data Environment: Task-specific point solutions have created the fragmentation of data and losses in handoffs, as construction is increasingly a mixed fleet world with different equipment, technology, software and information each of which handle different parts of the construction lifecycle. Trimble Construction Cloud features one centralised, common data environment that connects the office with site operations tools, enabling Trimble and non-Trimble solutions to automatically integrate into one usable data set.

Configured and Custom Workflows: most contractors still run their businesses manually, which is time-consuming and error prone. Trimble Construction Cloud solves this challenge with configured and customisable workflows that help project teams automate different aspects of their business with commonly used workflows, as well as by building and deploying their own around critical job roles and specific business objectives. The cloud’s three configured workflows include a model-to-procurement built for Mechanical, Engineering and Plumbing (MEP); a model-to-fabrication for structures; and a civil bid-to-build for site management. 

Live Data/Model Sharing: Trimble Construction Cloud provides customers with the ability to subscribe to unique capabilities across Trimble and non-Trimble solutions such as Microsoft Teams that serve to enhance and facilitate collaboration across project teams. The Live Sharing capability allows for real-time model collaboration for both Trimble and non-Trimble solutions.
