Command Alkon has announced a partnership with Texas-based Ruckit Inc., a collaborative transportation management software provider for aggregate and asphalt dump truck fleets, with an eye to eliminating paper ticket handling, speeding invoice reconciliation, raising record-keeping precision, and enabling back-office personnel to focus on more productive tasks.
“This marks another step forward for the digitization of the heavy civil and construction materials industries,” says Ruckit CEO Tarun Nimmagadda. “Ruckit and Command Alkon’s partnership was forged on the jobsite and in service of companies that purchase heavy materials. Our combined industry and technical knowledge will foster new opportunities for construction companies to operate with real-time visibility and boost productivity and profitability to new levels.”
Users will be able to receive digitized materials ticket data in real-time from their suppliers by connecting Command Alkon’s Connex Platform to Ruckit’s TicketPro solution, removing the time delays associated with manual entry and scanning paper tickets. “Each manual touchpoint of a paper ticket introduces new opportunities for inaccuracies, wasted time, and mistakes that almost inevitably arise when jobs are not effectively synchronized,” notes Command Alkon Business Development Representative Justin Mannina. “We are excited for the opportunity to help Ruckit’s customers through this integration by reducing time collecting information from the field and reducing errors and admin hours by eliminating the need to re-key information into office systems.”
