Caterpillar Inc and Trimble are extending their collaboration to bring mining customers improved operational decision-making capabilities. The collaboration will leverage Caterpillar Global Mining´s industry expertise and combine its in-pit operational execution system, Cat MineStar, with Trimble´s portfolio of technology-enabled mining information solutions. This expanded collaboration in mining will include product integration and development, marketing, distribution and support of Trimble Connected Mine solutions.
The companies have signed an agreement that outlines areas for increased engagement to begin in early 2017. Caterpillar Global Mining is anticipated to become the primary sales, marketing, distribution and support channel for Trimble´s Connected Mine platform. In addition, Cat MineStar and Trimble´s Connected Mine platform will be integrated and collaboratively developed.
