Command Alkon and Sugar Land, Texas-based software provider Heavy Construction Systems Specialists are leveraging their existing program integration partnership to expand safe social distancing capabilities on jobsites. The combination of Command Alkon eTicketing Essentials and HCSS Trucking programs, available free of charge through June, will help automate material and truck ticket collection and curtail the need for paper-based, person-to-person processes.
HCSS Trucking enables contractors to track vehicles and digitally record loads and timecards via tablet or smartphone. When used alongside eTicketing Essentials, program users receive electronic tickets for both materials and trucks all in one place. “We are happy to work in conjunction with Command Alkon to actively mitigate the impact of COVID-19, advancing essential heavy-civil construction projects while keeping workers’ health the number one priority,” says HCSS CEO Mike Rydin. “By replacing both paper material and truck tickets, we are keeping jobs safer and supporting ongoing operations in a more productive way.”
“The heavy construction community needs digital capabilities across supply chains now more than ever,” adds Command Alkon CEO Phil Ramsey. “Our combined efforts will provide a more end-to-end solution to better serve all stakeholders: material producers, suppliers, haulers, and contractors alike.”
