Trimble Connect Collaboration Platform Hits 10 Million User Milestone

Trimble Connect is an open collaboration platform for design and construction that connects project stakeholders with the data they need to inform decisions and improve team efficiency.


Sunnyvale, CA, June 2020–Trimble announces its Trimble Connect cloud-based collaboration platform has surpassed 10 million users.

Remote collaboration

In response to COVID-19, distributed working has intensified the need for teams to share information and collaborate remotely, leading 1.2 million users to join Trimble Connect in March and April alone. To date, Trimble Connect has hosted more than 80,000 design and construction projects, making it possible for people to collaborate and work together from anywhere in the world.

Trimble Connect is an open collaboration platform for design and construction that connects project stakeholders with the data, the need to inform decisions and improve team efficiency. Project stakeholders can share, review, coordinate, and comment on data-rich constructible models, schedules, and critical project information in real-time – reducing miscommunication and improving coordination to keep projects on time and on budget.

Increased Activity on Trimble Connect

During this pandemic, Trimble Connect has seen a considerable increase in use, enabling AECO stakeholders to collaborate and stay active during times of mandated shutdowns and remoteness. The number of invitations to collaborate increased 58 percent in April over the previous month, indicating that users are adjusting to new remote work mandates and maintaining operations and demonstrating agility and resilience.

“This is an exciting milestone for Trimble Connect,” said Ray Bagley, business area director for Trimble Connect. “Businesses in the AEC industry need an open, common data environment that allows project stakeholders to unlock the real value of building information modeling (BIM), civil construction, and geospatial data. The increased adoption of Trimble Connect in recent months shows us that businesses need reliable, open collaboration more than ever before.”

Trimble Connect’s API

Trimble Connect features an open API that facilitates data-flow to and from a variety of applications and enterprise solutions. Users can customize workflows as needed; they can access project files stored on Trimble Connect directly through a wide range of solutions, including Tekla Structures, Trimble SketchUp, Trimble ProjectSight, Trimble Access field software, and Trimble FieldLink layout software.


Trimble Connect is available online in a range of flexible plans, including the Personal (free), Business, and Business Premium for enterprise deployments. For more information, visit:
