Datamatic Becomes Certified Trimble Service Center

Nov. 26, 2014

PLANO, TEXAS – Nov. 19, 2014 – Datamatic, a leader in meter reading solutions for utilities worldwide, announced that it has been named a Certified Repair Depot for Trimble’s line of ruggedized Nomad™ handheld computers. Datamatic has completed the expansion of its existing Plano service center to include repair capabilities for the Nomad’s 800 and 900 lines.

The certification allows Datamatic to take care of its hundreds of worldwide utility customers from the Plano service center rather than requiring these customers to send handhelds to Trimble for repair. The move also helps existing Trimble customers who can now take advantage of Datamatic’s state-of-the-art, quick-turnaround North Texas repair depot.

Trimble is best known for their integrated GPS technology with a wide range of options including application software and wireless communications that provide complete commercial solutions. These integrated capabilities allow users to collect, manage and analyze information faster and easier, making companies more efficient and profitable. Trimble products are used in over 150 countries worldwide when coupled with highly capable dealers and distribution partners serving and supporting customers.

“Datamatic can now provide faster and more personalized service to our current customers, as well as support existing Trimble customers who need repairs,” said Dave Secord, Director of Operations for Datamatic. “With this certification, we continue to provide the superior level of service and support that Datamatic customers have come to expect, and open new business opportunities.”

Datamatic provides value added meter reading software for the Nomad. The ROADRUNNER™ Nomad is a powerful and versatile solution for meter reading. The Nomad incorporates the latest technologies, including WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, a laser scanner and a 5MP camera. When combined with Datamatic’s RouteSTAR™ Meter Reading Software, utility meters are read with or without AMR/AMI radio technology.
