It’s unanimous, industry experts agree that digital transformation will continue to enhance and impact ready-mix concrete production and delivery. Due to recent technological advancements, ready-mix concrete producers can now track their company’s performance and behavior in much greater detail. Leading the way is Sysdyne Technologies with their suite of Cloud-Native applications that automate and transform concrete production and delivery.
Today, there are more cost-effective solutions than ever available for implementing Digital Transformation in the ready-mix industry. Implementing a single platform and integrating data from multiple systems can greatly improve your operations and get them to the next level.
Every second counts when it comes to ready-mix deliveries. The timely delivery of ready-mix concrete is imperative, because it is a highly time-sensitive material. Innovative delivery management systems like iStrada help facilitate timely transportation.
With iStrada’s real-time tracking and job statusing, key personnel can view the status of every truck at any time. Specifically designed for the ready-mix concrete industry, operational data and a comprehensive view is completely automated. This system also allows customers to place orders, print invoices, print account statements, and view their deliveries in real time.
With ConcreteGO, a cloud-based solution for central dispatching, producers are able to grow their ready-mix businesses without investing in traditional IT infrastructure. With a simple web browser login, dispatchers and batch operators can access critical operational data from anywhere at any time. Real-time data helps batch operators, dispatchers, and drivers achieve a higher level of efficiency and quality. Dashboards and key performance indicators (KPIs) facilitate decision making for management teams.
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, GPS routing assistance, voice communication, eTicketing, customer access, and much more.
On top of reducing fuel consumption, in-cab systems can also reduce waiting times on the jobsite, which can be costly. Identify which vehicles are operational outside of defined work parameters and wasting fuel by monitoring work time versus idle time.
Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs) are digital inspection checklists that serve as pre- and post-trip reports for identifying vehicle defects. These records make it easier for mechanics to determine what needs to be done so the truck can be driven again. It is important to collect DVIRs regularly, which is made much easier with the help of iStrada.
Following a maintenance schedule and adopting technology to identify problems can avoid unnecessary equipment purchases. By using these tools, your maintenance department can keep track of potential issues, which keeps your vehicles on the road and helps you minimize downtime and lost revenue.
Pioneer Cloud Batch, the newest addition to Sysdyne’s product suite, allows users to monitor and adjust any load of concrete quickly, securely, and on the go. Through a unified database (dispatching and batching) decision makers will have advanced analytics and preventive maintenance capabilities that will lead to lower downtime. The ability to control the batching process in real time from anywhere creates tremendous value and savings.
When systems and processes are not aligned properly, managing everything simultaneously becomes overwhelming and time-consuming. Integrating Sysdyne’s solution suite with 3rd party systems is a great way for concrete producers to reduce back office tasks, increase productivity, and offer clients a better end-to-end experience.
Advanced software solutions were initially reserved for large ready-mix producers. Due to the upfront costs required, many ready-mix producers were unable to adopt technology solutions. Whatever their size, all producers aim to produce high-quality concrete, maximize productivity, and reduce operating costs.
By using a subscription option, companies of any size can implement an integrated solution easier and add features as their business grows.
