Who Should Attend?

The Trimble sponsored event will be hosted in combination with SITECH and Geospatial dealers of Australia / New Zealand and is open to all Trimble Business Center users from the Asia Pacific region.


Trimble Business Center has an extremely wide capability, however there is a lot of common ground between the extremes required specifically for the CEC or Geospatial user. The training will primarily focus on the middle ground areas that are suited to all types of users. We will be polling attendees as to what they would like to learn / what areas they would like us to focus on prior to the event and will tailor the event accordingly. The venue has the possibility to split the training facility into two rooms so that we can do breakouts as required to focus on the more specific subject areas that may get requested. This is a first for the PUG concept and targeted at bringing together the Power Users from both customer communities.


For sure we will be covering Site and Highway construction / survey modeling applications including Data Preparation, Estimating, Corridor Modeling, Field Data Management and Producing Reports and Drawing Deliverables. We will also look at the use of Point Clouds in modeling and computation processes.


The Power User Group is an Intermediate to Advanced user training, it will not cover the basics of the software, so all attendees should be proficient in the use of the software already. 


Who Is Leading the Training?

Alan Sharp (Business Area Director - CEC Software Solutions) from Trimble will be leading the training, and will be supported by software focused staff from Trimble, SITECH and Geospatial dealers, to give all attendees an opportunity to discuss requirements, issues, technical problems etc. with representatives of Trimble directly.


Training Goal / Objective

Our goal is to make this an annual event to develop a strong user group for the Trimble Business Center application. The training is targeted at getting users from 50% to 80/90% productive with the software, and will teach techniques and workflows associated with that goal. 


Networking Opportunity

As always, these events provide a great networking opportunity to see how others in industry are using Trimble Business Center and other Trimble Products in construction applications, and to also learn from Trimble specialists.
