Ground engineering contractor Ground Developments Ltd says Trimble software development supplied by Sitech UK and Ireland has transformed its business model over the last 18 months.
The company operates a large plant fleet including excavators, dozers, and heavy compaction equipment, and while machine control hardware has provided precision, their site managers are now using Trimble software to resource plan weeks in advance to ensure they have the right type and amount of equipment at site when they need it.
Based in Whitburn, Scotland, GDL was an early adopter of machine technology and began equipping its dozers and excavators with Trimble GCS900 Grade Control Systems more than a decade ago. The company is now a Beta tester for Trimble allowing it to try the latest products in their earliest stages.
Sitech regional sales consultant, Liam Payne, said GDL were at the forefront of implementing new technology to tackle complex site designs and soil stabilisation work. Over the years Sitech engineers have supported GDL’s journey, installing and calibrating its growing inventory of hardware and maintaining its software to help it achieve maximum efficiency.
He said: “GDL have an unrivalled reputation for the work they do thanks to their design and site team, and Sitech are proud to be their technology partner and support them with the best-connected site solutions. Their grasp early on of the value of live site data and portfolio of site positioning and machine control hardware, combined with their skill at gaining the maximum advantage from the Trimble WorksOS and WorksManager software, not only gives their customers complete assurance but has undoubtedly given them a competitive advantage.”
