HOUSTON -- December 11, 2012

PolyVista, Inc. announced today that Trimble Navigation (NASDAQ: TRMB), a
leading provider of advanced location-based solutions, has deployed
PolyVista’s Discovery software in their quality, reliability and service
groups. Trimble uses PolyVista’s advanced analytics to mine data from multiple
databases, leading to greater data access efficiency, increased engineering
group productivity, and significant warranty cost reductions.

“We wanted to find a one-stop-shop solution in terms of data analytics that
could plug into multiple databases, so we looked at a number of sources,”
explains Tim Burneka, PMP, the Director of Corporate Quality at Trimble. “We
narrowed down the selection process to two vendors, and after evaluating
[them], we selected PolyVista.”

Trimble started using PolyVista to analyze data from multiple locations
worldwide. “The number of people now doing data mining has significantly
decreased,” Tim added, which allows the quality team to “focus on finding the
potential issues and root causes” instead of spending time mining data.
“Something that may have taken us half a day or so to get, we can get in as

Tim cites the reduction in warranty costs as the “primary indicator” of
PolyVista’s benefit. “A 15-25 percent reduction was due in large part to the
data analysis capability of PolyVista.”

“I would have to say that PolyVista has demonstrated itself to be a key part
of our data analysis system,” added Tim. “PolyVista is powerful, scalable,
intuitive and user friendly for both experienced and novice users.”
