Research and Development Efforts Foster New Integrations for Electronic Ordering Through Heavy Materials Delivery and Receipt
Birmingham, AL – March 5, 2020 – Command Alkon, the leading Supplier Collaboration Platform for Construction’s Heavy Work, and HCSS, the Leading Heavy Civil Software Solutions Provider, are thrilled to be demonstrating the success that their partnership has cultivated for heavy contractors, suppliers, and haulers at CONEXPO in Las Vegas. Achievements made together, alongside further details on the future progression of their partnership, will be shared. Presentations and materials will be available at Command Alkon’s Booth S60528 and HCSS’ Booths S63929 and N11549.
“Early adopters have reaped the benefits of automating material data workflows, working with trustworthy real-time information, and significantly streamlining processes across project stakeholders,” said JP Giometti, Executive Director of Global Strategy and Business Development at HCSS. "Our solutions, combined with Command Alkon's CONNEX Platform, will greatly simplify communication and value chain orchestration through a more reliable and friction-free quote-to-pay process."
With eTicket, supplier generated heavy materials tickets are sent digitally through CONNEX and are automatically presented in HCSS Trucking and HCSS HeavyJob software applications. With eOrders, material orders are created, captured, confirmed, scheduled, tracked, and received using integrated workflows. eOrders enable Contractors and their Suppliers and Haulers to work from a single version of the truth, from order to testing, acceptance and payment, all with a tap on the screen on a mobile application. Automating order entry to final delivery and reconciliation transforms the heavy-civil supply chain, helping stakeholders reduce costs and enhance experiences across business partners.
“The less that people manually handle order information, the lower the likelihood for human error,” said Steve Cox, VP of Business Development at Command Alkon. “Removing paper-based workflows while automating order-to-cash and procure-to-pay processes boosts the speed of ordering, provides transparency and visibility into material movements and payments, and significantly improves overall productivity and efficiencies for all constituents on a job.”
The initial partnership between HCSS and Command Alkon was announced in September of 2019. More information on CONNEX and the alliance between the two companies can be found here. For more information on HCSS, visit their website.
