  • Trimble Inc (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced it introduced a Hardware-as-a-Service option for its Transportation fleet mobility solutions

This week, Trimble Inc (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced it introduced a Hardware-as-a-Service option for its Transportation fleet mobility solutions. And this new service consists of four bundles, which enables fleets to purchase Trimble hardware and software solutions and upgrade without upfront capital investment.

Each of the bundles is designed to help fleets predictably manage technology expenses while gaining access to the latest innovations from Trimble, including 4G LTE connectivity and a streamlined Android-powered user experience.

“The launch of Trimble’s Hardware-as-a-Service options gives fleets the ability to purchase hardware, software and professional services together for the first time,” said Jon Passman, chief product and marketing officer for Trimble Transportation. “By bundling our subscription and professional services with hardware for a single monthly price, customers can receive the services they value, our assistance in deploying and using them, and the predictability of new hardware each term without any upfront capital investment.”

The Trimble mobility bundles are tiered into four categories:  Premier, Professional, Flex, and Base — each designed with easy-to-understand solutions and straightforward pricing. And the new bundles deliver core telematics and regulatory components with additional available solutions, including CoPilot Truck in-cab navigation, Driver Retention Analytics, Automated Workflow, and messaging in certain bundles — which enables carriers to select the right bundle to meet their specific business needs. Each of the bundles are backed by Trimble’s domain expertise and extensive integrations to Trimble and third-party back-office transportation management system (TMS) platforms.

“We are committed to making it easier for carriers to better serve their customers, improve the safety and efficiency of their operations and, ultimately save money,” added Passman. “We created these bundles to simplify the purchase process and take the complexity out of selecting the right solutions for a fleet’s unique needs.”
