Four decades ago, when Charles Trimble founded the company and began operating from a small office above the old Los Altos theatre in Silicon Valley, little did he realize that one day his humble venture would turn into an industry game-changer. Initially focusing on positioning and navigation products, today Trimble is radically transforming the way the world engages in business and specifically the science of monitoring. The company offers state-of-the-art hardware and software technologies in positioning, modeling, connectivity, and monitoring designed for a broad range of industries starting from agriculture, construction, geospatial, transportation, and logistics. Today Trimble's monitoring solutions that encompass sensors, data analytics software, and seismic systems are used worldwide and offer remarkable precision 24 hours in a day.
Best Performance Monitoring
To better understand the performance of physical infrastructures and to predict its durability, the company uses sensor networks to monitor establishments, while providing data about different physical measures. No matter the size of a project, Trimble's solutions are flexible and can be customized to meet all client requirements.

When a prominent construction company, situated in the heart of Brisbane, was awarded a project, they were on the lookout for a geospatial solution to monitor work in real time. An added challenge was the intensive communications required to provide data to three government departments reliably. The client approached a consulting firm that developed a solution using Trimble's geotechnical sensors and the 4D Control software. Data from the Trimble station was sent to an adjacent communication box and onsite field data loggers would send the information to a server, through the Trimble Pivot software platform, a robust framework that delivers exceptional system performance. In addition, the 4D Control software provided an analytical output, which ultimately contributed to designing effective safety measures for workers onsite as well as the public.
Securing all Critical Infrastructures
To provide updated predictions of offshore oil platforms, the company offers a vibration activity monitor, which is a simple hardware and software system.
Another area where Trimble's solutions play an influential role is precision agriculture. Farmers use the Trimble Connected Farm dashboard to monitor real-time information about the location, productivity, and activity of assets. The solutions’ remote troubleshooting feature allows challenges in the field to be solved by remote specialists, while machine-to-machine communications between vehicles in the same field streamline operations through information sharing. Moreover, the Connected Farm dashboard can also be accessed through a smartphone or tablet for utmost efficiency.
All Trimble products and systems are backed by a full range of support options ranging from technical, to protection plan, maintenance and repair, and global training. The company offers free, comprehensive online support alongside traditional instructor-led courses. Trimble also boasts of a global partner network that provides support, consulting, and training services in over 125 countries. The breadth and efficacy of Trimble's solutions are such that it has been used everywhere from North Pole expeditions and Antarctic surveys to helping rescue miners trapped deep underground.
Always staying ahead of industry trends, the company recently released Trimble 4D Go, a cloud-based solution that redefines how organizations access earthquake event data. The solution allows users to receive data remotely from a web browser on any internet-enabled device, anywhere, anytime. As an extension of the service, the solution also facilitates the generation of hardware compliance reports to support building code reporting in many seismically active areas.
In the end, whatever an organization’s monitoring needs maybe in a vulnerable and fast-changing digital world, Trimble is the one-stop shop for real-time and remote monitoring.
