Benefits of a Manual Panel?

Benefits Of a Manual Panel?

“The upgrade to a portable solution that offers complete control with a detailed record of everything was simple”

We recommend Concrete Producers take into consideration the potential complications and minimal benefits an electrical manual panel has to offer. A manual panel adds complexity and unnecessary risk factors to your operations. Everything that can be done with a manual panel can be done more effectively with our smart batch control software, Pioneer.

There is No Guarantee

An electrical manual panel is not a guaranteed backup – at best it’s a false sense of security for the event that your computer goes down. The solution for this scenario is to have a backup computer; A backup computer would be just a fraction of the price of a manual panel.

Risk Factors

Okay, so nobody wants to imagine employees stealing from their own company… it is however, always good to be prepared. A manual panel increases the opportunity for employees to steal from the company. With Pioneer, everything is tracked, monitored and recorded. Managers can actually access the program via web browser in order to review inventory reports, assess batch performance, and adjust settings as needed, allowing business operations to run much more smoothly.

Would Pioneer Prevent This?

Yes – Without a manual panel and Pioneer in place, everything is guaranteed to be tracked by the computer.

How Does Going Paperless Save Money?

How Does Going Paperless Save Money?

“The paperless office is possible, but not by imitating paper.” – Ted Nelson

Businesses of all sizes handle a variety of documents every day, from contracts and tickets to utility bills and inspection sheets. Printed materials are costly to produce and tend to take up lots of space in filing cabinets and folders. Here’s how going paperless with concrete ticketing software and other digital platforms can help businesses save money, space, and time.

Less Money Spent on Paper

Going paperless comes with a few upfront costs, but the long-term savings and profits make it a wise investment.

Studies estimate that companies still using physical documents spend an average of $80 per employee on paper each year. By transitioning to a paperless system, businesses across industries will reduce or phase out these expenses. Beyond the cost of paper alone, other fees including cost of labor to scan tickets, scanner expenses, carrier payments, and the charge from lost tickets (which registers even more with customers), are entirely eliminated, which should be taken into consideration.

Increased Efficiency

Going paperless can also save businesses money by increasing their day-to-day efficiency.

Organizing, filing, and searching through physical paperwork takes up a lot of time and energy. With digital documents/systems, employees can process valuable information with just a few clicks. When staff members waste less time and energy managing paper documents, they have more time to take care of business.

Without depending on paper for transactions, customer interaction is enhanced as well. Billing is easier and faster without waiting for the tickets, and customers are able to access their tickets in real-time, which reduces calls and business time spent to deal with customer inquiries.
