Trimble’s ViewpointOne construction management platform is now Construction One

Trimble Construction One will now replace the company’s ViewpointOne platform to connect project finances with field and operational data.
According to the company, Trimble Construction One will enable contractors to leverage a purpose-built connected construction management platform that reveals the right information at the right time.
“The growing needs of our customers has always been our focus, and they’ve told us that connecting project finances with field and operational data is at the top of their wish list,” said Matt Harris, vice president and general manager, Trimble Viewpoint.
“With Trimble Construction One, we offer expanded connections across the construction project lifecycle enabling better data for decision making. All existing ViewpointOne customers are now automatically on Trimble Construction One and have the opportunity to access additional benefits and flexibility.”
The company says connected construction management software allows contractors to connect how they “Plan, do and manage” their construction projects and associated data for greater returns.
With data connected under Trimble Construction One, contractors gain real-time data and reporting, allowing them to make reliable strategic decisions such as whether or not to take on a new project in a challenging time, when hiring should occur, or what the project margins are likely to be. Utilizing both current and historical data, contractors can get a real-time view of all their projects, evaluate cost projections on projects to create better bids and discover problems or issues in time to address them.
“From a preconstruction point of view, Trimble already connects thousands of distributors and contractors, and manages millions of manufacturer items, prices, labor and metadata,” said Lawrence Smith, vice president and general manager, Trimble MEP. “Now, under Trimble Construction One, estimating is connected to the ERP, so when the contractor has won the job, that estimate becomes the baseline budget for the project - and that information is put in the hands of the project manager efficiently, through our estimating to ERP integrations.”
Craig Lundskog, director of finance, Great Basin Industrial, added, “Under Trimble Construction One, I’m not just looking at labor or costs, I’m looking at the actuals of what we got done and am able to project that at a very detailed level so I can understand how we’re doing on a job. It will be invaluable to how we run our business.”
As part of the Trimble Construction One launch, Viewpoint and its subsidiary brands will now operate as Trimble.
