Trimble Transportation Announces Major Graphical User Interface and Web Access Option for Innovative Software

BEACHWOOD, OH. April 18, 2013 - Trimble Transportation® today announced a browser-based graphical user interface option for sale with its Innovative transportation management software. The sophisticated user interface solution runs natively on the IBM i platform and preserves the speed, simplicity and application stability of the Innovative business software. The Innovative IES - Web Edition increases business agility with mobile access on tablets and other devices, easier training for new users, seamless interaction with common Microsoft Office® applications and responsive screen design.

"Trucking companies are constantly challenged to adapt and respond to economic and market changes," said David Wangler, president of Trimble Transportation. "The need for quick reactions and continuous innovation in their own operations drives many companies to demand the same qualities from their vital operating systems. This new capability for Innovative software delivers on all fronts."
