LAS VEGAS, March 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that its Field Service Management (FSM) fleet and asset portfolio supports the new Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) 2.0/ ISO-15143-3 telematics standard for data feeds. Adopting the new standard will allow both inbound and outbound data to be exchanged with multiple telematics and asset tracking systems and be displayed in a standardized format. This will enable businesses to view service vehicles on the same system as the assets they are servicing to improve the service workflow.
The announcement was made at ConExpo 2017, one of the world's largest international exhibitions for the construction industry.
The AEMP 2.0/ISO-15143-3 data feed includes data elements and fault codes and will address seven areas of equipment information: utilization, excessive idling, location, job availability, inspection, electronic usage and preventative maintenance.
"The new AEMP 2.0 / ISO-15143-3 standard offers much greater flexibility to manage mixed fleets and we are excited to be able to offer this function to our customers," said John Cameron, general manager of Trimble FSM Division. "Businesses will be able to gather more OEM equipment data than ever before and view, manage and analyze it in their preferred systems. With this easy access to the data, intelligent business decisions can be made and maintenance schedules can be managed and optimized to improve customer service, save time and reduce costs within the entire business operation."
Trimble will also use AEMP 2.0 to support two-way data exchange between its FSM fleet and asset solutions and its VisionLink® solution, a web-based fleet, asset and productivity management solution for construction equipment. With this integration, construction customers can obtain a holistic, real-time view of their construction machinery and vehicle fleet on the same map and in a single system. When assets are moved between jobsites there is often an associated vehicle that is needed to transport it there. Viewing multiple asset types in a single application will also streamline service workflows by providing an application for both service vehicles and the equipment that needs service.
Trimble has also announced enhancements to its cloud-based Work Management scheduling solution, an important element of the Trimble PULSE™ suite of end-to-end field service management solutions. Trimble Work Management version 4.3 will support AEMP 2.0/ISO 15143-3 inbound data feeds. This will enable equipment dispatchers to identify where service vehicles are in relation to the assets they are servicing, view the location and status of technicians and provide them with the means to generate a work order for any asset while at the jobsite. In the event of an asset breakdown, the nearest qualified technician can be immediately contacted and assigned. Once on site, the technician can access key information about the asset, such as its exact location, serial number, make, model and asset name. If further maintenance is required, the technician can generate a work order immediately, enabling streamlined maintenance workflows.
A live demonstration of "Improving the Service Workflow Leveraging the AEMP Standard" will be showcased at ConExpo from March 7-11. The demonstration will take place at 3:00 pm PT daily at the Trimble Software Theater booth (South Hall – S64228).
