Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System Connects the Machine to the Office

MUNICH, April 11, 2016—Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) announced today that the purchase of a complete Trimble® GCS900 Grade Control System will include six months of Trimble Connected Site® services at no additional cost if activated by June 30, 2017. The services make it even easier for contractors to connect the machine to the office to realize significant cost savings and productivity gains.

The announcement was made at bauma 2016, the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment.

Connected Site Services

Integrating grade control data communications, remote GNSS corrections and telematics, the Trimble Connected Site optimizes asset productivity and reduces operational costs. Contractors can better remotely manage assets and projects from the office and machine operators can stay up-to-date with the latest design files, work orders, and training without ever leaving the machine. Trimble Connected Site services include the Web-based Connected Community and VisionLink® solutions.

Connected Community is the backbone of the Trimble Connected Site, allowing contractors to share information in real-time using the Internet. Using Connected Community, contractors can manage crews, devices and sites effectively from the office, and see and interact with Trimble machine control and Site Positioning Systems for troubleshooting and training. Accurate information flowing between the office and the job site gives managers more time to make better, more informed decisions.

VisionLink integrates site productivity data, fleet and asset management, and materials and volumes movement information. VisionLink is pioneering the ability to present a collective view of all machines and their contribution to overall productivity across the organization and across sites. In addition, VisionLink gives contractors the ability to view asset and productivity data on mobile devices.


The Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System with six months of Connected Site Services is now available globally through the SITECH® dealer channel.
