In this episode of The Dirt, we talk with Matt Harris about Trimble Construction One, a comprehensive suite of software to manage a construction project from start to finish, while providing real-time information every step of the way.
Construction companies can use the software to keep track of anything from hours on machines, to labor hours, to materials, to accounting. Trimble acquired Viewpoint Construction Software in 2018, and now Viewpoint is fully integrated with Trimble. ViewpointOne construction management software has been renamed Trimble Construction One. It uses data from all phases of construction to provide teams with real-time information, showing project costs and resource allocation.
“At the end of the day, what we do is deliver the right information at the right time to the right people,” said Harris, vice president and general manager of Trimble Viewpoint. “So entrepreneurs can run a better business for themselves. ”
Harris describes it as a “network of connected software” to link the different phases of an entrepreneur’s activity. For example, Construction One provides solutions for contractors to relate prices to their estimates. And then he links those estimates directly to their projects and budget models. Its project management applications also allow transparency on projects for better communication and collaboration.
“We provide tools in Trimble Construction One that give site managers, superintendents and project managers the ability to manage and track their resources – people, equipment, materials – that are actually happening on the job site,” says Harris. . And then everything that happens on the site is connected to the back office to offer a real-time view of the project.
