Why has Trimble acquired CSC? What benefit is it for me as a CSC customer?

Trimble is committed to providing a total solution for the Design-Build-Operate (DBO) lifecycle. Trimble and Tekla’s combined offering has real value in the detailing to construction workflow. CSC has a long history in the structural engineering design software sector and is considered a leading brand for Analysis & Design (A&D) solutions. With the addition of CSC to the Trimble portfolio, this will strengthen Trimble’s position for the DBO lifecycle by providing an enhanced design to detailing workflow for structural engineers.

Being acquired by Trimble will help CSC strengthen its presence in existing markets and accelerate growth in strategically important emerging markets where there is currently limited presence. This offers an exciting opportunity as CSC will benefit from further global reach and additional resources, enabling us to deliver an enhanced level of service to our clients. Trimble will help CSC realize our ambitions far quicker than we could have done by organic growth. CSC complements and extends the Trimble Buildings’ Structures division portfolio.
