Read MoreHide Full Article

Trimble (TRMB - Free Report) unveiled a significant development in its cloud software solutions, particularly targeting asset lifecycle management. The announcement entails that two of Trimble’s flagship offerings, e-Builder Enterprise – Commercial and specific functionalities within AgileAssets, have attained a Level 2 Certification under the Texas Risk and Authorization Management Program (TX-RAMP).

The certification underscores Trimble’s commitment to adhering to stringent security standards, particularly crucial in the context of cloud-based data processing for Texas state agencies. As part of the Texas Department of Information Resources, TX-RAMP ensures the security of commercial cloud computing products and services utilized by state entities, mitigating risks associated with data processing, storage and transmission.

Trimble’s e-Builder Enterprise serves as a digital project delivery software tailored for capital improvement programs (CIP) and State Transportation Improvement Programs (STIP). Given the substantial influx of federal grants — approximately $51 million over three years — allocated for the adoption of advanced digital construction management systems by U.S. state departments of transportation (DOTs), Trimble’s TX-RAMP-certified solution emerges as a timely and indispensable asset.

Similarly, AgileAssets, equipped with TX-RAMP-certified capabilities in pavement management and maintenance management, empowers DOTs and infrastructure management organizations to optimize asset maintenance and management. Leveraging predictive data analytics, AgileAssets facilitates informed decision-making to ensure infrastructure safety, affordability and longevity.

Trimble’s solutions help in improving infrastructure management by digitizing and streamlining workflows across the asset lifecycle. e-Builder and AgileAssets not only bolster data security but also enhance productivity, cost-effectiveness and sustainability.

Trimble's TX-RAMP-certified solutions epitomize a paradigm shift in infrastructure management, offering state agencies and organizations a robust framework to navigate the evolving landscape of digital construction and asset maintenance. With a relentless focus on innovation and security, Trimble reaffirms its position as a frontrunner in enabling efficient and resilient infrastructure ecosystems.
