Trimble Launches New Version of its Smart Water Management Software to Streamline Utility Field Operations

Trimble Unity 3.0 Adds New Features to Ease Deployment and Connect Mobile Workers to Maps and Data

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 5, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today the latest version of its smart water mapping and work management software—Trimble® Unity 3.0. Trimble Unity is a cloud-based, (GIS) centric software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution for smart water management. Version 3.0 includes new features and workflows and also offers an App Builder and new integration capabilities to simplify connecting mobile workers with maps and data from back office enterprise systems.   

Trimble Unity offers a unified cloud-based and mobile collaboration platform for smart water mapping and work management to water, wastewater, stormwater and environmental water industry customers. The software is designed to automate a variety of workflows through individual "apps" that enable utilities to monitor real-time operations, deploy smart meters, assess the condition of assets, repair leaks to reduce non-revenue water (NRW), and locate and map critical infrastructure using Trimble high-accuracy GNSS mapping technologies. Trimble Unity can be deployed to assist utilities in reducing spills and environmental damage, extending the life of aging assets and enabling improved worker safety and productivity. These benefits enable utilities to address many of the significant challenges they are facing due to water shortages, flooding, budget constraints and environmental regulations. 

The new version includes a variety of apps with enhanced features for automating and streamlining common water, wastewater and stormwater asset management activities and monitoring field operations. Customers are now able to use the included App Builder to create and customize their own apps, workflows and data collection forms to improve their organization's existing business processes. Version 3.0 adds new administration capabilities for managing mobile and office user roles, access rights and available apps. The product also includes new integration capabilities for allowing customers to connect Trimble Unity with their existing third-party back office customer service and asset management systems and provide a single GIS-centric field solution across their entire workforce.  

Trimble Unity leverages the Esri ArcGIS technology across the product providing support for Esri GIS mapping in the office and field. Trimble Unity is available on iPhones, iPads, and Windows and Android smartphones and tablets as well as on Trimble rugged, high-accuracy mobile mapping devices.
