More Than Ever, Going Paperless Makes Sense

Share This ARTICLE

It’s no secret that paper-based processes power construction services. Using emerging technology, companies are moving traditionally paper-based workflows to the cloud. This means everything from employee hour logs to ticketing, even payments can now be conducted online. Shifting workflows to the internet provides efficiency gains to field workers, dispatch and managers, as they have constant need to file, organize and manage documents. By moving to the cloud, paper management tasks can now be reduced – or in some cases, even eliminated. Going paperless is now more important than ever before. With the popularity of mobile devices and cloud computing, companies have an unprecedented opportunity to provide employees and customers with access to documents anywhere, anytime. Here are eight reasons why you should consider moving away from paper, and embracing the cloud.

1. Automates tasks

Going paperless can help automate time-sensitive tasks, such as delivery management, time keeping and payroll reports. When tasks are automated, working on projects as well as tracking project needs becomes an easy duty.

2. Boosts morale

By automating tasks, a lot of time is saved for employees, and the quality of their work is improved. Instead of having to focus on the filing and management of documents, they can focus on doing more work in the field and doing more to tangible work to serve the mission of their company – the reasons why they joined in the first place.

3. Saves employee time

If you’re a dispatcher tasked with 60 trucks, that’s a lot of paper to manage. If all those documents are stored online, and accessible anywhere, anytime, you save a lot of time looking for misplaced files and collecting data.

4. Integrates related technologies

Going digital with your workflows means that you can start to integrate other services. Tools like iStrada and ConcreteGO can be integrated to give you a more efficient workflow. Document management is the core, and by integrating various solutions, you can gain a more complete view of your company and its needs.

5. Cuts costs

Moving to the cloud can help you with cost savings. Not having to print, mail or store paper can lead to significant cost savings. By not having to constantly be moving paper, employees are able to take on more responsibilities.

6. Empowers workers

By going digital, employees gain access to their most important documents, which can help them become more efficient and effective. With the cloud, information can automatically be synced – eliminating the need to input and collect data twice.

7. Extracts important data from documents

Documents hold essential information on services. By moving documents to the cloud, businesses can collect more data and information with better accuracy. They can use this data to help improve the quality of services – everything from how the customer is informed, to how services are distributed.

8. Supports green initiatives

By reducing the amount of paper utilized, you can reduce your company’s carbon footprint whilst cutting costs.

Sysdyne is happy to announce iStradaView, our newly redesigned Dashboard. The iStradaView Dashboard can be enabled by going to: Settings > Account > Modules > Dashboard type

Once you have selected the iStradaView option your Dashboard will now look like this:

This new view can be filtered by plants or regions (a new resource option we have added to simplify your filtering) and also by day both into the future and the past. Regions can be accessed from the Resource menu and allow you the option to group plants into logical sets of plants for quick filtering of many plants i.e. a metropolitan area central dispatch office.

When you click on one of the pie charts in iStradaView as a concrete producer you will see a list of orders at that plant on that day like the following:

From here you can click on an individual order line to see the Order Details view of the information:

This offers the most detailed level of information we have ever provided about orders in iStrada. You will see:

• Total number of Loads/Tickets that have been created up to the minute.
• Total number of Yards Ordered and Yards Poured.>
• Based on the schedule information provided by Concrete Go you will see the percentage of Loads that were On Time.>
• A Basic Summary of the order information and a Google Maps image of the job site geofence.>
• Each ticket is listed in the central area with a hyperlink associated with the ticket number to allow you to bring up the ticket details you are used to seeing in the Tickets area of iStrada.>
• Just below that is the detailed schedule information about the order. This contains a copy of the original order information which represents how the schedule and products were set when the order was initially saved. In addition to this, we also show the current order information which allows a side-by-side comparison of how the order has changed.>
• We currently have 2 graphs on the right-hand side of the screen:

o The first shows cumulative Waiting and Pouring time at the job site.
o The second shows three different pieces of data:

■ Red line – This line is based on the Pour Rate calculated on the schedule. This line increases over time until it reaches the total ordered quantity.
■ Teal Line – This line shows how many yards have been delivered.
■ Blue Line – This line indicates how many yards have been poured.

• The difference between Red and Teal give a visual indicator of how closely you are meeting the agreed-upon delivered quantity over time based on the schedule. A gap between Red and Teal indicates you are not delivering the concrete to the job site at the same rate agreed upon based on the Pour Rate in the schedule.
• The difference between Teal and Blue gives a visual indicator of whether the customer is pouring the concrete at the agreed upon Pour Rate. If there is a large gap between Teal and Blue there is a large quantity of concrete waiting to be poured on site.

All of this is built with a responsive web design which allows this information to be viewed on everything from a phone to a tablet to a computer monitor.

Combined with our all-new Sysdyne View App available on both iOS and Android. This new functionality is available at your fingertips from a single app on any device.
