Trimble acquired privately-held Cengea Solutions Inc., based in British Columbia. Cengea is a provider of spatially-enabled business operations and supply chain management software for the forestry, agriculture and natural resource industries. The acquisition is part of Trimble's strategic initiative to bring productivity solutions to the forestry and other industries. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Cengea's forestry enterprise software solution manages the operational activities associated with producing raw materials such as lumber, paper and other forest products throughout the value chain — from initial project planning to scheduling of work, growing, harvesting, delivery, tracking of goods, payment, inventory management and real-time reporting. The operational data can be integrated with maps and other spatial data to provide a complete perspective on activities and costs. The combination of Trimble and Cengea's forestry solutions can provide organizations with a comprehensive set of tools to collect accurate operational information faster, manage and analyze the information to facilitate better decision making, and optimize operational activities to improve productivity, efficiency and safety.
