TRIMBLE ACQUIRES XYZ SOLUTIONS
XYZ Solutions’ software package allows users to model spatial information combined with positioning technologies to virtually “see” a construction site or asset, from anywhere, at any time, in a collaborative Internet-based environment. Within its interactive environment, decision support guidelines or business rules can be integrated into the solution set to virtually model “what-if” scenarios on a project in real-time increasing customer awareness and profitability. The acquisition adds a 3-D visualization component to Trimble’s Connected Construction Site strategy, which is designed to provide significant efficiency improvements through a tighter integration of construction process information.
“The acquisition of XYZ Solutions is a natural extension of our positioning and machine control technologies,” said Bryn Fosburgh, vice president of Trimble’s Engineering and Construction segment. “The XYZ Solutions acquisition provides Trimble a real-time 3D visualization and decision making tool to take our Connected Construction Site initiatives to the next level.”
XYZ Solutions will be reported within Trimble’s Engineering and Construction business segment.
