Trimble and Esri Collaborate to Bring Location-Based Products and Services to the Global Forestry Market
SUNNYVALE, Calif. and REDLANDS, Calif., Feb. 2, 2021—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) and Esri announced today that the companies are collaborating by integrating Esri software into Trimble’s Connected Forest™ solutions, which are used by both forest owners and products companies. The integration adds location intelligence technology designed to transform workflows and provide greater visibility, traceability and efficiency for the forest industry.
An example of the collaboration can be seen in Trimble’s recently released Land Resource Manager (LRM) 4.4, which features significantly enhanced mapping capability powered by Esri’s ArcGIS insights, Dashboards and ArcGIS Online products. In LRM version 4.4 mobile users can access spatial information with user-friendly interfaces that enable even non-GIS professionals to view and use maps more readily in the field.
“Working with Esri to expand and further integrate location intelligence into our Connected Forest solutions enables our customers to create a more coordinated, optimized and flexible supply chain from harvest through delivery,” said Kevin Toohill, general manager of Trimble Forestry. “The extension of access to real-time, location-generated data from the office into the field empowers employees on-site to make real-time, data-driven decisions to increase operational efficiency.
“The Trimble and Esri relationship dates back decades,” said Scot McQueen, Esri commercial forestry account manager. “Today’s announcement represents a commitment to collaboration and supporting the forest industry with spatially-enabled technology products and solutions. We are excited to see this continued commitment to our technology and are expecting a positive impact on the forest industry.”
