Trimble’s Catalyst software-defined Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver for Android phones and tablets is now available with a usage-based service plan: Trimble Catalyst On Demand.
According to the company, the new service plan is focused on satisfying the requirements of a growing number of industries and organizations who recognize the benefits of using high-accuracy GNSS technology in the field, but need a more flexible payment model.
Trimble Catalyst On Demand provides scalable access to RTK-quality GNSS positioning using an affordable pay-per-use hourly pricing model in addition to the current Catalyst monthly plans, the company added. The service also enables automated domain-level email address access, which streamlines license allocation for organizations with a large number of users.
“Catalyst On Demand is Trimble’s response to the growing number of individuals and organizations needing flexible access to high-accuracy GNSS technology,” said Rachel Blair Winkler, business area manager, mapping and GIS, for Trimble. “By providing a usage-based payment model for Catalyst, we are empowering more users inside and outside the geospatial profession to record positions, navigate to points, measure relative distance and create digital maps. This results in better work and better decisions.”
Trimble Catalyst service subscriptions and the Catalyst DA1 antenna are available through Trimble’s Authorized GIS Distribution Network.
