TRIMBLE has acquired privately-held Quantm International and its subsidiary Quantm Ltd of Australia in an all-cash transaction.
Quantm is a leader in transportation route optimisation software used for planning highways, railways, pipelines and canals.
Quantm’s innovative software system enables infrastructure planners to examine and select route corridors and alignments that simultaneously optimise construction costs, environmental restrictions, existing feature avoidance and legislative obligations.
Trimble's Connected Construction Site strategy seeks to improve efficiency through a tighter integration of construction process information.
Transportation route alignments generated by Quantm's software add another piece to Trimble’s strategy by forming a closer link between the planning and design phases of a transportation project.
Infrastructure owners, such as Departments or Ministries of Transportation, and the construction companies that support them can all benefit from Quantm's capabilities.
Quantm will be reported within Trimble's Engineering and Construction business segment.
