Trimble Launches Construction One Management Platform


Trimble Construction One

Trimble Construction One is a purpose-built connected construction management platform designed to help contractors access information when they need it.

“[Our customers have] told us that connecting project finances with field and operational data is at the top of their wish list,” said Matt Harris, VP and general manager, Trimble Viewpoint, in a prepared statement. “With Trimble Construction One, we offer expanded connections across the construction project lifecycle enabling better data for decision making. All existing ViewpointOne customers are now automatically on Trimble Construction One and have the opportunity to access additional benefits and flexibility.”

What does Trimble Construction One do?

Contractors can:

Connect data from the planning phases of a project—Estimating, Design & Detailing, Content & Pricing Services—to the project actuals, leading to more predictable construction outcomes.

More efficiently do actual project work—Project Management, Field Management, Service Management—and map that data back to the project, leading to optimal resource utilization and cost savings.

Spend less time on project administration, bringing Financial Management, Business Operations Management, Job Costing, Payroll and Procurement together with ongoing project completion rates to ensure greater overall efficiency and project profitability.

“From a preconstruction point of view, Trimble already connects thousands of distributors and contractors, and manages millions of manufacturer items, prices, labor and metadata,” said Lawrence Smith, VP and general manager, Trimble MEP, in a statement. “Now, under Trimble Construction One, estimating is connected to the ERP, so when the contractor has won the job, that estimate becomes the baseline budget for the project—and that information is put in the hands of the project manager efficiently, through our estimating to ERP integrations.”

Said Craig Lundskog, director of finance for Great Basin Industrial, in a statement:

“Under Trimble Construction One, I’m not just looking at labor or costs, I’m looking at the actuals of what we got done and am able to project that at a very detailed level so I can understand how we’re doing on a job.” 

With data connected under Trimble Construction One, contractors gain accurate real-time data and reporting.

“Being able to very quickly see where my projects are financially, where we are percentage completion wise, where we are with labor hours, where we are with quantities—all those things being in one place means fewer administrative hours,” said Peter Hainsworth, director of operations, Ridgeline Electrical Industries in a statement.
