In a notable advancement for digital project management and infrastructure maintenance, Trimble, a leading technology company, has achieved Level 2 Certification in the Texas Risk and Authorization Management Program (TX-RAMP) for two of its cloud software solutions. This certification underlines the company’s commitment to meeting the rigorous data security standards laid out by the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR), reinforcing the trust Texas state agencies can place in these solutions for managing critical infrastructure.

Trimble’s e-Builder Enterprise – Commercial and select capabilities within the AgileAssets software have been recognized for their compliance with the stringent security requirements of TX-RAMP. This endorsement acknowledges the solutions’ robustness in handling data that is both confidential and of moderate to high impact. The e-Builder solution is targeted at public and private entities overseeing capital improvement programs, offering a digital project delivery software that ensures projects within a Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) are carried out efficiently, securely, and sustainably. With a significant amount of federal grants, approximately $51 million, made available for U.S. state departments of transportation (DOTs) to leverage advanced digital construction management systems (ADCMS) over the next three years, the demand for secure and compliant software solutions is higher than ever.

On the other hand, the AgileAssets software is designed to support DOTs and other agencies in the optimum management and maintenance of roads and other crucial infrastructure assets. This solution empowers asset managers with predictive data analytics, enabling informed decision-making to maximally utilize available funds for infrastructure preservation with an emphasis on safety, cost-effectiveness, and longevity.

The certification of these Trimble solutions marks a significant milestone in the company’s strategy to transform the way the world manages construction and infrastructure projects. According to Shelly Nooner, vice president of Innovation and Platform for Trimble’s Owner and Public Sector, the acknowledgment by TX-RAMP bolsters their mission to deliver digital solutions that not only secure critical data but also enhance productivity and sustainability across the asset lifecycle.

The e-Builder system’s capabilities include digital tracking of fund allocation, real-time project status updates, implementation of cost controls, efficient document management, and robust data security for capital improvement programs. AgileAssets goes a step further by providing a comprehensive management system for transportation infrastructure, covering aspects from budgeting and fund allocation to the scheduling of inspections, maintenance activities, regulatory compliance, and performance reporting.

These certifications are not just a nod to Trimble’s technological advancements but also evidence of its solutions’ ability to reduce the total cost of ownership of infrastructure assets by enhancing efficiency and mitigating risk throughout the asset lifecycle. This is indeed an era where digital and physical worlds are seamlessly connected, fostering improved productivity, quality, safety, and sustainability within critical industries such as construction, geospatial, agriculture, and transportation.

As Trimble continues to innovate and push the boundaries of technology to meld the digital with the physical, the TX-RAMP Level 2 Certification serves as a testament to the company’s dedication to delivering secure, efficient, and sustainable solutions. This development heralds a future where managing and maintaining the infrastructure that underpins modern society is not only easier but safer and more reliable.
