Trimble rounds-out construction technology offering
By Jillian MorganConstruction
Trimble has agreed to acquire Portland, OR-based Viewpoint. The purchase aims to extend Trimble’s construction management software offering, and is complementary to its recent acquisition of Florida-based software company e-Builder, which it purchased in February 2018.
Viewpoint integrates a contractor’s financial and resource management to their project operations and to their jobsite and field.
With Viewpoint, Trimble will offer a central workflow platform for construction management. Viewpoint will focus on general, specialty and heavy civil contractors, and link project data into the owner-facing e-Builder suite.
Currently managing over $400 billion of construction project value, Viewpoint has approximately 8,000 customers worldwide.
“The acquisitions are strategically significant and position us to play a unique and central market role in providing comprehensive enterprise and project solutions,” said Steven W. Berglund, president and CEO of Trimble. www.trimble.com
