Trimble and Computer Guidance Corporation used Trimble Dimensions 2012 in Las Vegas as a backdrop to announce interoperable solutions that work together for the capture, processing and reporting of heavy equipment utilization, maintenance, and accounting.
Trimble’s advanced positioning solutions provide real-time, automated data capture of business-critical information, including hours of use, idle time, fuel usage and location of heavy construction equipment. The information is then automatically delivered to Trimble's VisionLink to provide users a holistic view of job site operations.
Computer Guidance and Trimble have partnered to deliver―eCMS Connect for VisionLink―to provide contractors real-time equipment information in eCMS enterprise resource planning for further processing and reporting. As a result of the integration, eCMS Equipment Accounting and Equipment Maintenance applications are automatically updated on a scheduled basis with the information from VisionLink, giving contractors access to accurate and real-time asset management data, automated usage-based billing, advanced reporting, and precise forecasting, Trimble says.
eCMS Connect is an extension application for Computer Guidance’s eCMS Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, which provides connectivity for third-party application data and business process information into the eCMS database via Web services.
