Trimble Enhances its Cloud-based Software for Smart Water

Infrastructure Mapping and Work Management

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ:

TRMB) introduced the latest version of its smart water infrastructure

mapping and work management software-Trimble@ ConnectT version 1.8.

The latest release of the cloud-based, Geographic Information System

(GIS)-centric software includes a suite of applications that allow

water, wastewater and stormwater utilities to visualize and

efficiently manage their network maintenance and data collection


Trimble Connect software leverages Trimble's GNSS rugged mobile

devices and Esri's GIS technologies to accurately map, locate and

assess the condition of critical infrastructure assets, allowing

utilities to keep their field infrastructure data up-to-date and

accurate. Offered as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscription, the

solution allows users to monitor asset operating conditions, manage

leak repairs, reduce non-revenue water, deploy and inspect smart

meters, lower potential threats to safety and health due to

contamination and adhere to regulators' reporting guidelines and

requirements. Trimble Connect version 1.8 can be configured and

deployed quickly on a variety of Trimble and non-Trimble mobile

devices, laptops, tablets and smartphones, including Apple iPads,

iPhones, Android, Windows and Windows Mobile devices to automate field

workflows and eliminate paper-based maps.

Trimble Connect utilizes the latest Esri ArcGIS 10.2.2 for Server,

Mobile and ArcGIS Online basemap services. The software is designed to

automate a variety of specific water and wastewater industry workflows

through individual "apps" offered within the product and as part of a

subscription. The new version provides standard core apps including

Map Book, Manhole Inspector, Leak Repair, Hydrant Inspector, Valve

Inspector, Meter Changeout, Incident Repair, Water Mapper, Wastewater

Mapper and Stormwater Mapper. In addition, an optional partner app

developed for American Flow Control (AFC) hydrant and valve data

collection, "AFC Mapper," can be purchased from AFC and their

distributors for use with Trimble rugged handhelds.

In addition to the standard core apps, Trimble Connect version 1.8

Windows Mobile and Windows 7/8 platforms

using data collected in Trimble Connect
