Best in Class Construction Technology Distribution Channel Provides Strong Local Sales, Support and Service to Contractors of all Sizes and with Mixed Fleets
Las Vegas, Nov. 3, 2014—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that it has established more than 100 SITECH® Technology Dealers worldwide. SITECH Technology Dealers are the first fully dedicated global distribution network focused on offering the most comprehensive portfolio of construction technology solutions available to the heavy civil and site construction contractor.
The announcement was made at Trimble Dimensions.
Trimble is committed to delivering value across the entire life cycle of heavy civil and site construction projects, providing enhanced information for improved productivity and uptime through real-time integrated information management on-site. Trimble technology is changing how construction work is performed—allowing contractors of all sizes and with mixed fleets to bid with more confidence, reduce rework, eliminate downtime, improve quality and manage costs.
SITECH Technology Dealers understand how to apply innovative construction technology to solve a variety of contractors’ construction challenges—from small site construction to large infrastructure projects. Through a greater implementation of technology across construction processes, contractors of all sizes can gain greater insight into their operations, enabling them to lower operating costs and improve accuracy, safety and productivity.
As part of building and maintaining a world-class partner for the contractor, Trimble is investing in continuous dealer improvement and development programs. Trimble works with each SITECH dealership to ensure long-term business viability and strong relationships at the local level. Combined with strong domain knowledge and understanding of the entire construction process, SITECH dealers are able to provide best-in-class customer support and service, training, system optimization and configuration, rental, installation and consultation to heavy civil contractors for their entire project and mixed fleet needs—regardless of machine brand.
“To be of value to the contractor, it is critical that the SITECH dealer become the contractor’s partner and advisor in how to best apply and adapt technology to the contractor’s project needs. Therefore it is much more than just selling hardware, it’s about selling solutions. In order to do this it is critical that SITECH understands the construction management process,” said Roz Buick, vice president for Trimble’s Heavy Civil Construction Division. “The SITECH dealer’s relationship with the contractor is paramount and can extend throughout all areas of the construction organization.”
SITECH Technology Dealers represent the Trimble® portfolio of Connected Site® solutions—grade, compaction and paving control systems, site positioning systems, fleet and asset management services, software and powerful wireless and Internet-based site communications infrastructure. In addition, SITECH dealers sell and support certain Caterpillar machine control systems.
Trimble has established more than 100 SITECH dealers across all regions—the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia, China and the South Pacific—including more than 30 in new territories and developing regions.
