AgileAssets acquired by Trimble
By Bill Tremblay
Trimble has acquired AgileAssets, a provider of enterprise infrastructure asset management software.
AgileAssets’ Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) asset management solutions provide organizations with advanced analytics for real-time decision making as well as insights for managing day-to-day maintenance operations. AgileAssets’ solutions address the global challenges associated with maintaining and replacing aging transportation infrastructure.
“AgileAssets is a pioneer in developing software to address the challenges associated with managing and maintaining aging, critical infrastructure,” said Shelly Nooner, general manager of Trimble’s Civil Design and Engineering Division.
“Trimble has a long history of transforming industries by providing full solutions that help customers survey, design, construct and assess infrastructure at scale. With AgileAssets, we now expand our civil infrastructure solutions portfolio to include managing and optimizing the performance and sustainability of our customer’s assets across the entire lifecycle. It is an exciting time in infrastructure. Trimble and AgileAssets together create a powerful combination to advance technology adoption and will allow owners to realize the full potential of digital as-builts through the entire asset lifecycle.”
AgileAssets provides organizations managing roads, bridges, airports and rail assets with SaaS solutions to plan, operate and report on assets across the lifecycle.
AgileAssets’ real-time inspection data
For example, using real-time inspection data and advanced analytics capabilities provides insight to make more informed decisions on how to maintain or reconstruct vital infrastructure. To date, the software has helped infrastructure asset owners to maintain about 55 per cent of state and highway roads (about 2.8 million lane miles) and 357,000 bridges in the United States.
The addition of the company to Trimble’s platform will add “as-designed” and “as-built” data to the 3D model for the maintenance and improvement phases. Availability of this data within the model creates a robust Digital Twin for owners throughout the asset lifecycle. This solution allows an owner to track the transportation asset through its full lifecycle, which provides predictability, sustainability and lower lifetime asset costs.
“We’re excited to join the Trimble ecosystem. Trimble is an ideal match for AgileAssets and our work to bring intelligent analytics and maintenance solutions to enterprise infrastructure owners,” said Stuart Hudson, CEO of AgileAssets.
“Integration with Trimble will accelerate our intelligent infrastructure asset management approach and allow us to increase the impact and value our solutions deliver to customers. The combination of Trimble’s construction modelling technology with our asset lifecycle solution will provide our customers with an elegant end-to-end, highly visual, interactive platform for all of their infrastructure management needs.”
AgileAssets will be reported as part of Trimble’s Buildings and Infrastructure segment.
