Trimble Introduces VisionLink Fleet and Asset Management Solution

Next Generation Fleet and Asset Management Solution Combines Machine Health Monitoring with Construction Data Site Analysis and Reporting

MUNICH, April 19 — (PRNewswire) — Trimble (Nasdaq: TRMB) today introduced its next generation fleet and asset management solution—the Web-based VisionLink™ solution. Using the VisionLink solution, owners of mixed fleets can monitor equipment health and fleet utilization with near real-time speed.

The announcement was made today at Bauma 2010, the world's largest construction equipment exposition.

The VisionLink fleet and asset management solution features user-friendly management tools combined with GPS-based positioning and cellular technology to provide near real-time information regarding mixed fleet equipment performance. From portable assets to heavy machinery such as dump trucks, fuel trucks, graders, and loaders, VisionLink brings together a range of information, including machine fault codes, location, hours, events and user defined alerts, to provide an overview of machine health, fuel management and working utilization. The solution extends the Trimble® Construction Manager solution which offers contractors a range of tools to monitor machine utilization and site productivity.

Senior executives, fleet managers and rental equipment managers access the information about their equipment using the VisionLink Web-based solution where they can see map-based equipment views and run on-demand reports or charts. With alert functions, users can be automatically notified of unexpected activity via e-mail or SMS messaging.

The VisionLink fleet and asset management solution has been developed by VirtualSite Solutions, a Trimble and Caterpillar® joint venture company. VirtualSite Solutions is responsible for developing solutions to transform the way owners of mixed fleets can efficiently and safely manage their equipment fleets, reduce operating costs and improve productivity in the areas of fuel consumption, maintenance, worksite productivity and fleet logistics. The VisionLink solution is an integral part of the Cat® Product Link fleet-management solution and replaces their current user interface with powerful tools and features for processing and conveying information to users and dealers. The solution supports uses GPS, cellular and Low-Earth-Orbit based enabling hardware devices to transmit data over GSM/GPRS networks to provide equipment information to a secure data server. Trimble offers the VisionLink solution to allow mixed fleet owners to consolidate fleet management efforts.

The VisionLink fleet and asset management solution from Trimble is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2010 through the Trimble Heavy and Highway Construction distribution and SITECH™ dealer networks.
