Implementation Consulting Services with a Focus on Collaboration

We understand that no two-construction operations are alike, and each has different estimating and project control requirements. The Trimble and BuildingPoint consulting teams work with your business and IT teams to plan and deliver a solution that meets your needs. We will take the time to fully assess your current processes and determine what is working, as well as identify areas that present opportunities for improvement.

Work With Experienced, Certified Professionals

It is important to choose implementation consulting services delivered by credentialed professionals with years of relevant construction industry experience and extensive product knowledge. All consultants are certified in our products and are experts in our industry. Together, these skills enable them to work with your business experts to design efficient business processes specifically designed for your organization.

The processes are then implemented by leveraging Trimble’s product configuration tools or by creating customized applications, system interfaces and specialized reporting.

Implementation Consulting Services Based on Proven PMI Methodology

Trimble has adopted the Project Management Institute (PMI) project management methodology to manage the design, development, implementation and maintenance of its projects. This approach provides the overall methodology that will be used to guide implementation.

The PMI methodology entails breaking down each project into five distinct process groups: initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing. Our consultants will tailor this methodology to meet your company’s unique estimating and project control requirements.

We Involve Your Team in Every Aspect of the Process

Our implementation consulting services include the direct involvement of key members of your organization. A selected set of staff from your team (referred to as the Core Team) will be identified to participate, and will be actively engaged in the planning, definition and validation of the solution.

This gives you total assurance that the implementation solution can easily be integrated into your current processes, and that it will deliver the results you expect.
