Trimble acquires Nexala to expand its role in the Rail Transport Industry
Trimble announced that it has acquired privately held Nexala, a provider of enterprise solutions for the rail transport industry, headquartered in Dublin, Ireland. Financial terms were not disclosed. Nexala’s enterprise solutions manage the lifecycle of rail transport vehicles from operation through maintenance and repair.
The Nexala enterprise solutions complement Trimble’s existing portfolio of rail solutions, enabling Trimble to address the broader railway workflow—from initial greenfield track alignment planning to managing the maintenance of locomotives in a repair depot.
Trimble’s existing railway solutions leverage the spectrum of Trimble technology for track and structure construction and maintenance—including construction machine control systems, Building Information Modeling (BIM) software and highly precise track measurement systems—to enable high-quality railway construction on time and budget. On the operations side, Trimble’s fleet mobility solutions, RFID reading technology and Positive Train Control (PTC) mapping systems enable productive and safe operation of passenger and freight railroads. The addition of Nexala will accelerate Trimble’s ability to deliver more complete solutions for both railway infrastructure managers and transport operators.
Nexala provides an integrated suite of on premise and software as a service (SaaS) solutions for large transport operators and global train and component manufacturers. Click here for the full document and what solutions are included.
