“As tools, equipment and materials
are assigned to new locations [other
warehouses, projects, vehicles, employees, etc.], transactions are logged. The
transactions generally initiate workflow,
such as job cost and billing or service
events, and the transaction data supports
reporting and analytics,” Kafka said.
As for the financial impact of using
this system, he said it depends.
“The cost to an organization is predicated on the number of user subscriptions,”
Kafka said. “A typical cost for the first year,
including licensing, training and data-migration services, would be $8,000 to
$15,000. Subsequent years only require a
$1,700 annual subscription fee per user.
“The amount of training depends on
how much of the system is being implemented. At the most basic level, personnel
are trained to enter new items, assign items,
search for items and run basic reports.
“A system actually is easy to maintain,
provided someone is dedicated to the
success of managing tools and equipment,” he said.
John Inman, product manager, Trim-
ble Navigation (All Trak), said:
“Trimble All Trak Cloud is a SaaS-
based program [software as a service]
providing instant access to asset infor-
mation to allow for proper job-site
allocation, service scheduling and
project utilization. SaaS-based pro-
grams enable users to access tool and

“All Trak Cloud is scalable for companies that work out of a single office
or out of multiple offices in multiple

There is no specific package; it is
scaled according to the needs of the user.
