Trimble Establishes Two New BuildingPoint Distribution Partners in the U.S. to Serve Building Construction Industry – BuildingPoint Partners – Dedicated Global Distribution Network for Technologies Spanning the Design-Build-Operate (DBO) Lifecycle
SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 28, 2015 — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that two new BuildingPoint™ distribution partners have been established in the U.S.—BuildingPoint Florida and BuildingPoint Mid-America. These latest additions join the growing BuildingPoint network that provides focused sales and services with a portfolio of software and hardware solutions for the Design-Build-Operate (DBO) lifecycle of buildings.
BuildingPoint distribution partners represent Trimble Buildings’ solutions that allow users to create and transfer constructible models throughout the DBO lifecycle—from concept and design to the field and back to the office again. The solutions utilize sensors, 3D positioning, data, Building Information Modeling (BIM), communications and analytics. The emergence of these technologies, along with the ability to integrate them within a comprehensive information architecture, provides an unprecedented capability to improve productivity, schedule adherence and cost discipline. Trimble’s expanded information architecture enables these improvements by significantly improving project transparency and collaboration, which leads to much tighter integration of the elements of building design, building construction and post-completion building operation.
BuildingPoint will provide the primary vehicle for bringing Trimble’s DBO solutions to the market. Experienced construction professionals in each regional BuildingPoint will support users in achieving the optimal construction technology solution for each project. This support will consist of a combination of hardware and software, consulting, virtual design and construction services, personalized training and technical support.
Trimble is establishing a network of BuildingPoint distribution partners in the Americas, Europe and Asia/Pacific regions. For more information on BuildingPoint Distribution Partners, visit: www.buildingpoint.com.
