{mosimage} Trimble has acquired the assets of privately held Accubid Systems (Concord, Ont.), a provider of estimating, project management and service management software and services for electrical and mechanical contractors. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Accubid’s family of software products allow electrical and mechanical
contractors to analyze their estimates in detail (including CAD-based
estimating and takeoff) then export the data into project management,
accounting and procurement applications. The acquisition of Accubid
broadens Trimble’s “BIM-to-field” solutions for mechanical, electrical
and plumbing (MEP) contractors to automate project estimating and
management, modeling, detailing, layout and construction.

“In today’s world, construction projects have become more complex and
sophisticated, yet at the same time contractors are expected to build
them faster than ever before,” said Giovanni Marcelli, founder and CEO
of Accubid. “By combining the strengths of Accubid’s project management
and estimating expertise with Trimble’s powerful MEP field solutions, we
can better enable clients to address these challenges head-on.”
