1 Introduction to Asset Management

2 What is VisionLink?  Web-based fleet, asset and site productivity management solution, enabled by telematics hardware  Supports multiple users in different locations  Near real-time monitoring of fleet utilization  For mixed fleets, from portable assets to heavy machinery  New and existing equipment

3 VisionLink™ can help your organization:  Understand and improve asset utilization and productivity  Reduce fuel cost and theft  Monitor and improve equipment operations  Employ “predictive” maintenance  Mitigate equipment theft  Make More Effective Decisions! The More You Know The More You Earn

4 VisionLink powered by Trimble  Provides a telematics solution for a contractor’s mixed fleet of machines and portable assets  Provides site productivity solutions that improve operational performance and accountability on projects

5 Three Software Cornerstones  VisionLink is one of three key products that together deliver the Trimble Connected Site ® –Business Center – HCE –VisionLink –Connected Community  VisionLink –Connects portable assets, light and heavy production equipment into the Connected Site

6 Connected Site – Data Flows Business Center - HCE Connected Community VisionLink SPS & GCS Systems Design Systems

7 VisionLink Telematics Devices  VisionLink is facilitated by telematics devices attached to the machine  Telematics hardware incorporates GPS positioning with cellular or Wi-Fi communications technology  Additional sensors (switches) can also be connected to the telematics hardware Trimble Devices SNM940 Connected Site GatewayTrimTrac Pro Locator
