Industry Leaders Work Together to Shape Ready Mix Industry Technology
Command Alkon has partnered with McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing to offer an integrated telematics solution combining McNeilus® FLEX Controls and Command Alkon’s TrackIt fleet management system.
TrackIt is FiveCubits’ and Command Alkon’s comprehensive telematics and fleet management system custom-built for the construction materials industry. TrackIt will now be available with McNeilus FLEX Controls and the Android-based FLEX display tablet, which comes standard on McNeilus mixers. This integrated solution allows for one in-cab display instead of multiple, enabling safer vehicle operation and reducing hardware and installation costs.
“We are excited to be partnering with Command Alkon to deliver a cutting-edge technology solution with exclusive functionality. We’re providing a fully integrated package for the ready mix concrete industry” said Bryan Datema, platform lead for concrete mixers, McNeilus. “Their innovative fleet management product is the perfect choice to integrate with our FLEX Controls, and helps move the industry forward.” Engine diagnostic information can also be broadcast through the TrackIt platform.
Emily Branum, Vice President of Stragetic Planning for Command Alkon notes that “Trackit integration with McNeilus FLEX Controls is just the first step in a partnership to leverage the commitment of both companies to the ready-mix concrete industry to drive new efficiencies and reduce complexity for our joint customers.” McNeilus and Command Alkon are collaborating on additional enhancements that are scheduled to be released to the industry within the next year, in an ongoing effort to develop more intelligent trucks.
