Trimble has purchased the assets of Accubid Systems in Concord, Ontario. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Accubid is a provider of estimating, project management and service management software and services for electrical and mechanical contractors.
Accubid’s family of software products allows contractors to analyze their estimates in detail including CAD-based estimating and takeoff and then export the data into project management, accounting and procurement applications. The acquisition of Accubid broadens what Trimble calls its “BIM to field” products for mechanical, electrical and plumbing contractors.
“BIM collaboration processes are transforming the way building construction projects are planned, managed and executed,” said Pat Bohle, general manager of Trimble’s building construction division. “Combining Accubid’s deep understanding of the electrical and mechanical trades and their detail-rich application data with Trimble’s field solutions will provide contractors additional tools to become more productive, efficient and prepared to meet the demands of the industry in the future.”
