A part of Trimble's Engineering and Construction segment Trimble Buildings has unveiled a new cloud-based solution for construction field management.

Trimble ProjectSight provides mobile workers with access to up-to-date project information and smart workflows, and simplifies the creation, access and sharing of project information between the field and the office.

The technology is claimed to boost productivity, allows contractors to lower software costs and a wide team of collaborators to access information.

Said to be designed for contractors and construction managers, Trimble ProjectSight is accessible through a web browser or an iPad app and features an intuitive user interface overlaying project-based workflows to keep teams in sync.

"ProjectSight ensures workers have access to accurate, up-to-date information and it puts that information in the hands of highly distributed teams at very low cost."

ProjectSight users will gain up-to-date information on material tracking, issues reporting, information requests and critical project drawings, models and documents.

The technology is integrated with offline capabilities that keep information available during unconnected sessions encountered on construction sites.

Joining other solutions in Trimble's portfolio for managing construction project logistics, ProjectSight leverages the new Trimble Connect collaboration environment for design, engineering, as well as construction firms.

ProjectSight users can access and share project management data with Trimble Connect users across the design-build-operate lifecycle.

Trimble Buildings general contractor / construction manager division general manager Mark Sawyer said: "Effective project management is critical to the profitability of any construction project.

"ProjectSight ensures workers have access to accurate, up-to-date information and it puts that information in the hands of highly distributed teams at very low cost."
