Trimble announced that its Trimble Mobile Solutions (TMS) division and RS Solutions have entered into a definitive agreement to integrate and market Trimble's TrimFleet™ Ready Mix solution with RS Solutions' Ready Slump® system on new aftermarket and factory installations for concrete trucks throughout the United States and Canada. Together, the integrated system shares job ticket information, vehicle location, status monitoring, driver messaging, and ready mix concrete process control through the delivery process. The entire system, integrated between the producer's dispatch system and the concrete truck, will provide producers with real-time management and control of concrete while the truck is in transit. The Ready Slump system is said to be the first truck-mounted process control system that can accurately measure, adjust and document concrete slump from the time a truck is loaded until it is poured. RS Solutions LLC of West Chester, Ohio, provides targeted process control solutions for the ready mix concrete industry. Trimble Mobile Solutions provides mobile resource management solutions.
