Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Trimble recently announced the release of Trimble Construction Manager version 1.9, a fully integrated solution for managing construction equipment and operations. Trimble Construction Manager version 1.9 introduces charts and a dashboard view designed for users to visualize critical operational information for their construction fleet.
Trimble Construction Manager is designed to reduce construction project costs through enhanced equipment utilization, improved safety, theft recovery, and an improved understanding of a construction company’s operations.
The new function of the equipment management solution is designed to enable simple identification of underutilized equipment or bottlenecks in construction operations. Some examples include: bar charts displaying equipment utilization (actual hours worked compared to expected hours), work time compared to idle time, and a timeline of equipment activity throughout the day.
The Construction Manager version 1.9 also includes a detailed utilization report and maintenance alerts. The utilization report lets users view their equipment’s daily utilization and analyze actual hours worked compared to hours when the equipment was running but was idle, as well as hours worked compared to expected hours. This report aids in identifying which equipment are under or excessively utilized. With the maintenance alert, users can be alerted via email or SMS to their mobile phone when a piece of equipment is nearing its next maintenance milestone.
