Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Trimble introduced TerraFlex, a software and services platform to manage data collection activities for geospatial projects. Trimble TerraFlex helps managers maintain control of the flow of geo-enabled field data.

Two essential components comprise the TerraFlex platform: cloud services and a mobile app. With an online data repository and streamlined toolset for creating custom form templates, TerraFlex Cloud services provide managers and team leaders with a centralized system to configure and manage the data collection process. In the field, the TerraFlex Mobile app provides a common interface for users of a range of mobile devices. The result is more flexibility in the field and streamlined integration of data into the office environment.

Trimble TerraFlex brings diverse field work together. Regardless of the type of mobile device preferred, the TerraFlex interface provides a consistent experience. Managers responsible for integrating field data can now be confident that all users, regardless of field hardware platform are following trusted field workflows. All field data is captured via the cloud for integration into a GIS, database or mapping application.

 "With Trimble TerraFlex, organizations can deploy a common workflow to collect or inspect their assets," said Daniel Wallace, general manager of Trimble's GIS data collection division. "Designed for simplicity in a mobile environment, Trimble TerraFlex can enable a new generation of field workers to contribute to geospatial initiatives."
