Trimble acquire software solutions suite from Premap.com
U.S. telematics giant Trimble has acquired a suite of software solutions from Penmap.com of Bradford, England.
Penmap.com’s solutions include both office and field data collection software specifically designed for the cadastral and surveying markets. The acquisition enables Trimble to further cater for local application requirements and customer needs by providing complete customised surveying software solutions for the cadastral market.
The software solutions acquired by Trimble include Penmap encore: a new solution specifically designed for PDAs and handheld GPS receivers running Windows Mobile operating system. The software’s claimed revolutionary user-friendly interface is said by Trimble to take advantage of virtually the entire display screen to maximise map real estate and is designed for fingertip operation.
Meanwhile, Penmap encoreT is new premium data collection software specifically designed for tablet PCs running Windows 8, 7, Vista or XP operating system. Its claimed innovative and intuitive user interface shows collected data on the map in real-time. This is said to give users peace of mind that they have collected data correctly before leaving the work site.
Finally, Penmap Office is described as an intuitive office platform for Penmap encore software. The office software streamlines the land administration professional’s workflow—from project preparation and importing data, to managing large raster and vector background maps collected in the field.
Erik Schütz, managing director for Penmap.com, said: “Since Penmap.com was founded, our vision has been to focus on the local requirements of the regional markets we serve and provide those customers with a fine-tuned and easy-to-use solution. The software is an ideal fit within the Trimble portfolio of solutions to address the cadastral market.”
Matt Delano, business area director for Trimble’s land administration solutions, said: “The acquisition of Penmap.com’s software suite of office and field solutions reinforces Trimble’s continued commitment to the cadastral market, as well as our focus on providing customers with complete solutions that are customised for local market requirements.”
