Trimble introduces Starter Edition site positioning software for construction surveying
Trimble has introduced the Trimble Siteworks SE Starter Edition, an entry-level, easy-to-use construction surveying software at an affordable price point.
Using a construction GNSS receiver, a supervisor, foreman, grade checker or site engineer can easily check a grade, slope or alignment and navigate the project more accurately and in less time than with traditional survey methods. Budget-conscious contractors can realize a quick return on investment by giving more personnel on the jobsite access to survey technology, enabling more productive and efficient field crews.
Low-cost, scalable construction surveying
Trimble Siteworks SE Software is a simplified version of Trimble Siteworks Software, intended for users who do not require a full feature set and are interested in a lower-cost version to connect to GNSS only. The same colourful graphics, natural interactions and gestures, and self-discovery features found in Trimble Siteworks make the software easy to learn, so both experienced and new users can get up-to-speed quickly.
Using the same data folder structure, file formats and workflows, Trimble Siteworks SE Software is fully compatible with Trimble Siteworks Software. Contractors can easily upgrade to the full version, making Siteworks SE an ideal entry point into construction technology for surveying.
"The Trimble Siteworks SE Starter Edition is an important addition to our site positioning portfolio," said Scott Crozier, vice president of Trimble Civil Construction. "With a lower cost-of-entry, the software is scalable and makes it easy for contractors to upgrade to more advanced Trimble Siteworks Positioning Systems as soon as their needs change."
Powerful software, flexible hardware
Trimble Siteworks SE Software is ideal for contractors who want to determine their location on a project, see cut/fill values to a design surface or alignment, or visualize constructible models in 3D. Users can easily measure feature (non-surface) points, lines and areas, or navigate to points, lines and alignments, and create PDF reports.
In vehicle mode, users can capture high-accuracy measurements on steep slopes from a moving vehicle. Trimble Siteworks SE is compatible with a wide range of GNSS hardware configurations to meet the contractor's business needs and budget requirements.
By connecting the field and the office, contractors can improve efficiency and productivity, while minimizing wasted time and expense. Trimble Siteworks SE can share up-to-date information wirelessly between the field and the office to increase operational efficiency and reduce downtime.
