Trimble's competitive position is maintained through the development and introduction of new products, including software and services, that incorporate improved features and functionality, better performance, smaller size and weight, lower cost, or some combination of these factors. They invest substantially in the development of new products. They also make a significant investment in the positioning, communication, and information technologies that underlie their products and will likely provide competitive advantages.

Across industries and applications and around the world, Trimble innovation enables economic breakthroughs—enhancing safety, boosting compliance, and reducing environmental impact. Furthermore, their portfolio includes over 1,200 patents and serves as the basis for the broadest positioning offerings in the industry. Trimble augments its organic product development with strategic acquisitions to bring the latest positioning technologies to a wider market.

Trimble Risks and Challenges

In fiscal 2020, Trimble total revenue decreased by $116.6 million or 4%. Overall revenue decreased due to weakness in Transportation, and to a lesser extent, Buildings and Infrastructure and Geospatial, which were impacted in the first two quarters by COVID-19. The decrease was partially offset by organic and acquisitions growth in Resources and Utilities, as well as recovery in Buildings and Infrastructure and Geospatial in the third and fourth quarters. Trimble considers acquisition growth to include acquisition revenue that was not applicable in the prior corresponding periods.

Product revenue decreased primarily due to weakness in hardware sales in Transportation, and to a lesser extent, Buildings and Infrastructure, partially offset by growth in Resources and Utilities. Geospatial was relatively flat. The decrease in Geospatial hardware sales in the first two quarters was largely offset by increased hardware sales in the third and fourth quarters. Service revenue decreased due to lower professional services associated with customer installations. Subscription revenue increased primarily due to strong organic growth in Buildings and Infrastructure, and to a lesser extent, acquisition revenue from Resources and Utilities, partially offset by weakness in Transportation.

Trimble's heavy investment in the construction vertical was tested in 2020 as the pandemic is upending a host of asset-intensive industries with severe economic pressures being felt among small and midsized contractors and subcontractors that are already debt-laden. With over 500 products and heavy investments in mobile, construction, and other verticals that require heavy use of mapping, weather, and location data, Trimble is in a sweet spot as natural resources become scarcer than ever. The question is whether customers can leverage such a large portfolio of products and expect continuous enhancements if they decide to standardize on its platform.

During 2020, Trimble made several leadership changes. Jaime Nielsen has been appointed chief people officer; Mark Schwartz has been appointed chief digital officer; Leah Lambertson has been named head of sustainability; and Albert Momo will serve as chair of the Trimble Foundation, the company's philanthropic fund.
