The Heavy Building Materials supply chain lives in a world of manual and costly paper-based processes. For example, when it comes to material deliveries, much of the industry still relies on paper tickets that are handed out to each involved team member, including drivers, contractors, and field testers/inspectors. Not only is this unnecessary and inefficient, but it compromises jobsite safety.
According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), 48 percent of roadway worker fatalities are caused when workers are run over or backed over by vehicles or mobile equipment, such as dump trucks.
Safety is one of Command Alkon’s top priorities, and our BuildIt e-Ticketing solution helps ensure your employees are safe at the jobsite. Instead of having the traditional ticket taker — whether it’s the “dump man” or field tester/inspector — in the way and often not in view of the truck driver, the BuildIt app allows users to electronically and safely view tickets, capture proof of delivery, and add test results directly from a mobile device.
In addition to improving safety, BuildIt also allows users to collaborate with suppliers, reducing the amount of necessary paperwork and providing real-time visibility of materials and job costs.
