Trimble recently announced that TDC Group, Inc. has joined Trimble’s GIS Business Partner Program. As part of the program, TDC has implemented the Trimble Precision SDK (Software Developer Kit) to integrate high-accuracy positioning capabilities in its Freeance mobile software applications running on tablets and smartphones using Trimble GNSS receivers.

Freeance provides field crews with simple yet powerful and configurable location-based mobile apps to manage data collection and inspection activities across utility and public works organizations. By adding the Trimble R1 and R2 receivers to the Freeance workflows, users are empowered with real-time access to high-quality, reliable data.

“Trimble recognizes the value our GIS software partners bring to our customers by delivering targeted, industry-specific solutions,” says Stephanie Michaud, strategic marketing manager, Trimble Survey & Mapping Field Solutions. “We’re very pleased to collaborate with TDC and leverage their domain expertise, and to integrate Trimble technology into the Freeance solution for the utilities and public works markets. As a direct result of this relationship, Freeance users can now work with the confidence of knowing their field workflows are precision-enabled with Trimble GIS technology.”

“We’re excited about the integration of high-accuracy Trimble GNSS receivers with Freeance software that enables organizations to add sub-meter or better accuracy to mobile workflow activities using smartphones and tablets,” says Matthew Reddington, CEO of TDC Group. “Adding high-accuracy positioning to field workflows by means of simple mobile apps paired with Trimble GNSS increases the quality and uses of data captured during field operations.” 


Trimble R1 and Trimble R2 GNSS receivers are available through Trimble Geospatial Distribution Partners. For more information, visit: Freeance software applications are available through TDC. For more information, visit:  .
