Trimble’s TRA-SER ICT helps with job bids
By Renée Francoeur
March 24, 2015 – Trimble recently introduced its TRA-SER ICT and Submittal Manager, created “specifically for contractors who specialize in Information & Communications Technology (ICT).”
ICT contractors will have access to a digital database of over 250,000 items from 100 manufacturers where they can access pricing, detailed product descriptions, images, manufacturer catalog pages, specification sheets and installation instructions for both estimating and submittal purposes, said the company.
Leveraging the expertise of Trade Service—acquired by Trimble in 2013—makes TRA-SER ICT an “easy-to-use tool for contractors who need to create accurate bids to win more jobs,” said Trimble. Contractors can get instantaneous price quotes from their preferred suppliers with the built-in functionality of Supplier Xchange.
TRA-SER ICT integrates with Trimble Accubid Enterprise Estimating so that prices can be constantly updated within the software, independent of the TRA-SER interface. Any price quotes obtained through Supplier Xchange can be inserted directly into the estimate.
