Trimble expands civil construction portfolio with acquisition of B2W Software
With the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) in the U.S. and other infrastructure legislation across the globe, construction organizations are fast-tracking the digitization of their processes and operations. As infrastructure projects become increasingly complex, data-driven insights and analytics will be imperative to improve productivity, increase efficiency, and drive sustainability.
The addition of B2W's pre-construction and operations solutions will expand Trimble's civil infrastructure portfolio and Trimble Construction One, a purpose-built connected construction management platform. B2W's integrated suite of applications includes estimating, scheduling, field tracking, equipment maintenance, data capture, and business intelligence. By combining these capabilities with Trimble's rich field data, project management, finance, and human capital management solutions, civil contractors will be able to bridge the gap between office and field in new ways.
"B2W has helped thousands of heavy civil contractors increase their bid accuracy and operational efficiency," says Paul McKeon, B2W founder and CEO. "And now with Trimble, we can realize the next chapter of our story. By linking the planned with the executed, we will provide civil contractors with a truly connected construction experience, unlocking valuable new insights for our customers across their entire operation."
B2W will be reported as part of Trimble's buildings and infrastructure segment.
