Adds Location-Based Intelligent Scheduling Within Oracle E-Business Suite

Trimble announced today that Oracle has developed an extension which allows Oracle Field Service Applications (part of Oracle® E-Business Suite) users to add Trimble's GeoManager solution to create an enterprise-level intelligent scheduling and dispatching platform for field service organizations. The on-demand location-based features of GeoManager will allow organizations to improve fleet performance and the management of mobile workers and distributed assets.

"By developing an extension for Trimble GeoManager, Oracle E-Business Suite Field Service can now take advantage of real-time location information to increase field workforce productivity and streamline call dispatch operations," said Steve Tonas, vice president of Oracle's EBS CRM Applications.

"Working with Oracle allows Trimble to provide an integrated global solution across many industries for businesses that want to streamline operations and increase productivity," said Rick Beyer, vice president of Trimble's Mobile Solutions segment.

GeoManager provides engine idling, fuel economy and carbon emissions information for fleet operations and fuel/carbon management programs. Speed, driver performance and engine fault codes can also be monitored and managed with Trimble's GeoManager solution.
