March 01, 2021

Contractors looking for fresh insight into the critical issues facing construction this year can take part in a free informational series produced by Trimble.

Trimble’s new on-demand Dimensions Spotlight Series begins March 10, runs through 2021, and includes topics on Reviving the U.S. Infrastructure, the Evolving Workforce, Sustainability and Automation.

Each Spotlight theme will include unique episodes aimed at inspiring and transforming the way industrial technology professionals work.

“Before the pandemic, many organizations were on a digital transformation journey. This global crisis not only accelerated that journey, it has forced companies to pivot to a ‘better normal’ that is redefining how we connect and collaborate now and beyond the pandemic,” said Rob Painter, Trimble’s president and CEO. “Our Spotlight Series is one answer to this ‘better normal,’ which will allow us to address industry challenges and present real solutions that can help companies grow and thrive by improving productivity, quality, safety, transparency and sustainability.”

The first Trimble Dimensions Spotlight Series will focus on ‘Reviving the U.S. Infrastructure.’ - Targeting the aging U.S. infrastructure, industry experts will share their thoughts on the role of advanced technology and processes in supporting informed, data-driven decisions, and why smart technology is vital to revive our nation’s infrastructure and stimulate our economy.
