The ready-mix concrete industry in the U.S. has reached a point of significance in its digital transformation. With recent innovations, ready-mix concrete producers now have access to a complete end-to-end view of the performance and behavior of their company.
With cost-effective solutions now available, it is easier than ever for the ready-mix industry to take advantage of Digital Transformation. By integrating data from different systems and implementing a single platform, you can efficiently transform your operation and take it to the next level.
With ready-mix deliveries, every second counts. As ready-mix concrete is a very time-sensitive material, it must be delivered to the precise location right on schedule. Thanks to systems such as iStrada, we no longer have to deal with paper-based ticketing systems and manual processes.
By utilizing real-time tracking and job statusing with advanced delivery management systems, key personnel are able to see at any given time exactly how many mixer trucks are ticketed, loading, driving to job, on job, pouring, and returning to plant. Designed specifically for use in ready-mix environments, the operational data and comprehensive view are completely automated. With access to track their shipments live, place orders, print their account statements and even download their invoices, this system also boosts customer satisfaction.
These solutions connect drivers to vehicles and vehicles to dispatchers. ConcreteGO, a cloud-based solution for central dispatching, assists producers in growing ready-mix businesses without requiring traditional IT infrastructure. Dispatchers and batch operators can access critical operational data from anywhere at any time using a simple web browser login. With real-time data at hand, producers, fleet operators, and drivers can achieve higher quality and more efficient production. Key performance indicators (KPIs) and dashboards enable management teams to more easily make decisions.
Our engine data and Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), powered by Geotab, are fully integrated with iStrada, our delivery management solution that includes features such as auto status updates, routing assistance, voice communication, eTicketing, customer access, and many others.
Besides reducing fuel consumption, in-cab systems also reduce waiting times on the jobsite, which can be expensive. Monitor work time versus idle time on equipment to determine which vehicles are operating outside of defined work parameters and wasting fuel.
Regularly collecting Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs) with the help of iStrada is important. DVIRs are digital inspection checklists that serve as pre- and post-trip reports for identifying vehicle defects. It is much easier for mechanics to determine what work has to be done before the truck can be driven again.
Businesses can avoid unnecessary equipment purchases when adhering to a preventive maintenance schedule and adopting technology to identify potential problems. With these tools, your maintenance department is able to keep track of potential issues, so your vehicles stay on the road and you reduce downtime and lost revenue.
Pioneer Cloud Batch, the latest addition to Sysdyne’s product suite, allows users to monitor and adjust any load of concrete both easily and securely using an internet-connected device. With a unified database (dispatching and batching), decision makers have advanced analytics, as well as preventive maintenance that lowers downtime. Real-time control of the batching process from anywhere creates tremendous value and savings.
Management of everything separately becomes extremely time-consuming when systems and processes are not aligned correctly. By integrating Sysdyne’s solution suite with industry-leading 3rd party systems using API technology, concrete producers can offer a better end-to-end experience to their clients, reduce back-office tasks and enjoy increased productivity.
Early on, advanced software solutions were available only to large ready-mix producers. Many ready-mix producers were unable to adopt technology solutions due to the upfront expenditure required. It is every producer’s aim to maximize productivity, reduce operating costs, and produce high-quality concrete, regardless of their size.
Taking advantage of a subscription option levels the playing field by enabling companies of any size to easily implement an integrated solution and to expand features as their business evolves.
