Construction technology systems specialist SITECH UK and Ireland is to distribute Trimble' s Field Service Management solutions to the heavy civil construction market.

Construction technology systems specialist SITECH UK and Ireland has become a distributor for Trimble's Field Service Management (FSM) solution for the heavy civil construction sector in the UK and Ireland.

"We are delighted that SITECH UK and Ireland will be adding Trimble's broad range of FSM solutions to their portfolio of solutions that they offer for heavy civil contractors," said John Cameron, general manager of Trimble's FSM Division. "We recently integrated our GeoManager Fleet Management with our VisionLink solution to provide construction businesses with the ability to centralise the management of on-site operations for improved productivity, efficiency and cost savings."

Trimble's GeoManager Fleet Management solution offers contractors visibility into their fleet service needs by providing real-time location updates of vehicles for service from VisionLink, as well as vehicle status and reports. Overall fleet productivity can be improved through optimised routing of service vehicles to VisionLink-based assets while maintenance schedules can also be managed, which can reduce fleet downtime and costs. The optimisation of service vehicle routing and work orders is based on the location and health information that is shared from VisionLink into GeoManager. Construction managers using VisionLink can thus ensure that their fleet is being serviced in an optimal location/health/time approach.

The global network of SITECH technology dealers represent Trimble and Caterpillar machine control systems for a contractor's entire fleet of heavy equipment and Trimble's portfolio of Connected Site site-positioning systems, construction asset management services, software and wireless and Internet-based site communications infrastructure.

Never before have contractors been able to view and manage their assets, vehicles, maintenance and jobs in one place and on one platform."
