Technology enthusiasts have pointed out that a lack of automation and resistance to the adoption of new technology are two primary reasons the Heavy Building Materials industry has failed to increase worker productivity for decades.
The ability to adapt to new technology is what sets apart leaders in the industry. This industry hero understands the benefits that can be gained by automating their business processes.
Anderson Concrete Corporation
Anderson Concrete Corporation has been in business since 1921- nearly 100 years of providing excellent products and superior customer service to commercial and residential projects in Central Ohio. They own a fleet of about 80 trucks and have 6 plants in operation.
Anderson Concrete has been a Command Alkon customer for years, and has integrated several different solutions from our catalog of products in our CONNEX Fufillment and CONNEX Production Suites, including: Integra, COMMANDbatch, OnBase, and ScheduleCom.
Their fleet operates with tablets in the truck for navigation with TrackIt, part of the CONNEX Logistics Suite. They were also early adopters of MOBILEjobsite, part of the CONNEX Jobsite Suite, and have since rolled it out to a large number of contractor users (100+).
“The consistency of the products has been great over the years. Most of the changes that have been made are at the request of customers. It’s nice that Command Alkon takes in to account what people are looking for.” -Shane Hegarty, Dispatching Supervisor at Anderson Concrete
As a company that frequently adapts to new processes and technologies, it’s important that Anderson Concrete has a reliable guide to help them get back on track if any problems occur. Command Alkon has had many acquisitions over the years, but it is important to us that our customers’ experiences never change due to this–unless it is for the better.
“The integration of all of our products is pretty nice, and it is easy to get things done when you can go through one company instead of two or three different ones.”
What makes Anderson Concrete a leader in the industry? Obviously, they have been around for nearly 100 years for a reason. They strive to build a better community, and they understand that the continuous adoption of new technology can help them strengthen their relationships with their customers and trading partners, maximize efficiency, and increase productivity.
