Trimble Expands its Geospatial Solutions for the Oil and Gas Industry with New Pipeline Construction Field Software Application

BERLIN, Oct. 7, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today an addition to its Trimble® Access™ family of field software applications—Trimble Access Pipelines. Designed for surveyors involved in oil and gas pipeline installation, Trimble Access Pipelines addresses challenges encountered by pipeline surveyors by automating common pipeline survey tasks. The software solution saves time by simplifying attribute and inventory collection and integrating all the data into one easy-to-use data collection workflow.

The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2014, the world's largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.

Trimble Access Pipelines, a new addition to the ever-increasing suite of applications available for Trimble Access field software, offers a streamlined workflow for pipe inventory collection and validation, weld mapping and as-built measurements. The software significantly reduces project time and redundancies by collecting pipe attribute data, recording the relationship between welds and pipes, and electronically linking the joint attributes to measured welds. Using the application, pipeline surveyors can capture the necessary data so construction can proceed without costly delays.

The complete end-to-end solution is enabled when combining the power of Trimble Access Pipelines and Trimble Business Center. Trimble Access Pipelines can quickly generate customized reports for the tally and weld map data or the surveyed pipeline directly on the controller. All field data can be seamlessly transferred into Trimble Business Center to produce rich, complete deliverables including as-built plots using the Trimble Business Center Advanced Drafting module.

"One of the most time consuming challenges pipeline surveyors face is the collection of pipe attribution detail and recording the information with weld positions," said Benoit Mallen, business area manager of Oil and Gas for Trimble's Geospatial Division."With Trimble Access Pipelines, we have leveraged Trimble's strength in positioning technology and combined it with a workflow-specific application to create a streamlined solution that can meet the needs of geospatial professionals working in the oil and gas industry."

Availability

Trimble Access Pipelines and Trimble Business Center Software version 3.30 are available now through Trimble's Geospatial Distribution Channel. For more information, visit:  http://apps.trimbleaccess.com.

A free trial of the Trimble Access Pipelines application as well as other available modules for Trimble Access are available to all existing Trimble Access users, and can be activated and installed using the Trimble Access Installation Manager.
