Trimble’s next generation VisionLink redesigned for faster access to fleet, asset and productivity data on mobile devices
MUNICH, April 11, 2016—Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) introduced today the next generation of its VisionLink® solution for fleet, asset and productivity management. The new version provides easier and faster access to more focused information using targeted apps via any Web-enabled device, such as a tablet or smartphone.
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.
Designed for Mobile Devices
The new version of VisionLink optimizes the solution for mobile devices. It provides identical functionality whether users are viewing the information on a laptop or on a smartphone, with uncluttered, easy-to-read screens featuring large buttons.
Customized and Targeted Apps
The Web-based VisionLink solution has been redesigned into smaller, task-based targeted apps so users can quickly access the information they need more quickly. Contractors can also configure the software to fit their unique needs with a new feature that offers a variety of customizable dashboard widgets. Similarly, they can specify when automated reports are generated and what content the reports will include. New targeted apps include VisionLink Unified Fleet and VisionLink Landfill.
The VisionLink Unified Fleet app, developed for the fleet manager, features user-friendly screens to display information such as hours, miles, location, idle time, asset status, and customer-defined asset states. The app continues to support the AEM/AEMP Telematics API Standard, allowing the system to be used for mixed fleets.
The VisionLink Landfill app is designed to enable landfill operators to better manage solid waste. The new app tracks the compaction and fill processes on landfill compactors using a Trimble® CCS900 Compaction Control system. The app calculates waste volumes placed and compaction densities.
Third-Party Data Integration
Partners and third parties can extend the VisionLink apps to fit their unique needs with the VisionLink Services Platform. Third-party developers can create unique solutions using VisionLink data to offer solutions that broaden the standard VisionLink features.
An Easy Transition
To ease the transition between the legacy and next generation solution, the VisionLink Legacy app allows contractors to use the original interface. Customers will use the same URL, which will take them to a Website with information about new VisionLink apps. From this screen, existing users can log on and then select VisionLink Legacy or select one of the new apps, such as VisionLink Unified Fleet or VisionLink Landfill.
VisionLink is now available globally through the SITECH® dealer channel.
