Trimble makes information-sharing acquisition
By Andy Brown05 January 2023
Trimble has acquired Ryvit, an integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) provider for the construction industry, as part of the company’s goal to make it easier for data to be communicated across projects.
Launched in 2016, Ryvit builds connections between commonly used applications and data sources, enabling information sharing both within and across organisations.
“The construction industry today is stymied by disparate data and technology solutions that don’t connect with one another, making it difficult to share information across departments and amongst project teams,” said Pete Large, senior vice president, Trimble Construction sector.
“Ryvit provides a platform for software solution providers and construction stakeholders to rapidly build and deploy workflows, enabling the automatic flow of critical information across organizations and teams in real time.
Providing integrations that process millions of data records daily between different construction technology partners, Ryvit helps customers integrate their data and coordinate their workflows for greater project visibility.
These integrations will continue to be supported as part of Trimble Construction One, with the primary offerings from Ryvit undergoing a rebrand to Data Xchange and App Xchange. Data Xchange represents the contractor tools that allow end users to configure and manage their data flows between connected systems. App Xchange serves as the developer’s command center for connecting systems, building pre-configured dataflows, and onboarding new customers.
Tom Stemm, chief executive officer of Ryvit, said, “Trimble is similarly focused on becoming an industry-leading open platform provider so this acquisition is a perfect match for both companies, who share a similar mission and vision for the industries we serve.”
