SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDQ: TRMB) introduced today its next generation suite of software applications for water, wastewater and stormwater utilities – Trimble® Unity. Trimble Unity replaces Trimble Connect for Water and offers a unified cloud-based and mobile collaboration platform for smart water mapping and work management.
Trimble Unity applications, or "apps," support the following workflows:
- Mapping: Field and office GIS visualization and mapping of assets with up to centimeter-level accuracies
- Maintenance: GIS-based asset maintenance and inspection forms and business processes
- Service: Customer field service work order and mobile workforce management
- Metering: Smart water meter deployment, installation and maintenance
- Monitoring: Visual and real-time monitoring of field operations and utility networks
- Analytics: Dashboards and performance management reporting
Trimble Unity represents a unified collaboration platform for managing critical utility assets and the work of water industry professionals. By integrating GIS and field operations, sensors and wireless communications, mobile workers and office professionals, field and back office enterprise systems, and utilities with their contractors, Trimble Unity provides the water industry with a comprehensive solution for regulatory reporting, improving operations, reducing cost and enhancing customer service.
Trimble Unity is designed to automate a variety of industry workflows through individual "apps" offered within the software suite, enabling utilities to deploy smart meters, assess the condition of assets, repair leaks and reduce non-revenue water (NRW), and locate and map critical infrastructure using Trimble high-accuracy GNSS mapping technologies. The software can also assist utilities in reducing spills and environmental damage, extending the life of aging assets and helping improve worker safety and productivity.
Through a Trimble Unity software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscription, organizations can provide a single solution for the office and the field, choosing any combination of Trimble and non-Trimble mobile devices, including iOS, Android, Windows Mobile and Windows 7/8 smartphone, tablets and laptops. The software also integrates the latest Esri ArcGIS Server, mobile and ArcGIS Online map services enabling organizations to leverage their existing investments in GIS technology.
