US, November 5, 2014: During the Trimble Dimensions 2014, Trimble launched its cloud-based collaboration platform that allows design, construction and operations’ teams to access, analyse, manage and share project data from anywhere at any time, Trimble Connect.
“Trimble Connect creates communities of collaboration across and within disciplines, integrating data from Trimble’s wide variety of applications and devices to reduce the barriers between teams and tasks,” said Bryn Fosburgh, vice president responsible for Trimble's Construction Technology Divisions. Trimble Connect is based on Gehry Technologies’ GTeam software. Gehry Technologies was recently acquired by Trimble
Trimble Connect provides coordinated information for everyone across the Design-Build-Operate segment by streamlining the process of combining building information modelling (BIM), 3D and 2D models via the Web, improving coordination among dispersed offices and teams, and reducing costs for software and training. It supports the platform-neutral IFC file format for OpenBIM. And also centralises all digital assets across a project portfolio, allowing project managers and building owners to audit and report on all past and present project data and activity.
