SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 19, 2014—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that it has been ranked as the No.1 telematics service provider in ABI Research’s 2014 Commercial Telematics Competitive Assessment, for a second consecutive year. The annual survey was assessed based on a number of criteria where Trimble emerged as the top player for market share of subscribers, vertical segmentation, quality and reliability, regional coverage and organization health.
For over 35 years, Trimble has developed advanced positioning solutions which, today, are used in over 150 countries and span industries ranging from Agriculture and Construction to Geospatial and Utilities. For those organizations operating workforces, vehicles and assets out in the field, Trimble technology can provide significant operational efficiencies and improve productivity. As part of its portfolio, telematics has played a central role in Trimble’s fleet offerings as an area of both strength and growth, particularly in its Transport & Logistics and Field Service Management divisions which were recognized in the ABI report.
ABI Research said that Trimble’s success can be attributed to its organic growth, acquisition and increasing subscriber base. Through its strategic acquisitions, no other company offers the same depth and breadth of products and services to as many verticals in as many countries as Trimble does.
“To be recognized as the leading telematics service provider by ABI Research for a second year running reinforces the commitment we provide to our customers to deliver them with the best-in-class solutions needed to meet their requirements and ROI expectations,” said Ron Konezny, vice president of Trimble’s Transportation and Logistics (T&L) Division. “While we operate globally, our modular and scalable telematics solutions are tailored to localized markets. Delivered through advanced, integrated fleet mobility systems, our solutions grow with the changing needs of our customers, continuously helping them to strengthen their fleet management for improved operational efficiency, customer service, driver and vehicle safety and regulatory compliance.”
“Innovation is at the heart of our business strategy,” said John Cameron, general manager of Trimble’s Field Service Management (FSM) Division. “We’ve recognized that more and more organizations are increasingly looking to integrate their Fleet Management capability with a solution that allows them to manage all aspects of their work and workers in one place and are delighted to be recognized as a leader in this field. Our commitment to our customers does not stop at best-in-class telematics as we continue to focus on driving the productivity of mobile workers through dynamic mobility tools that offer enhanced visibility into the field to transform operational effectiveness.”
