New features for Command Alkon's TrackIt system provide full autostatusing and reduce idle time
Command Alkon has launched new system features and hardware for the TrackIt product offering. The Delivery Cycle Monitoring (DCM) functionality enables real-time visibility into each stage in the ready mix delivery cycle, including jobsite performance insights.
"Drivers inconsistently provide status updates when it requires manual intervention. This results in incomplete or inaccurate information from the field being fed to dispatch, hampering the dispatcher's ability to make informed decisions," said Rich Haus, TrackIt Product Manager at Command Alkon. "With Delivery Cycle Monitoring, TrackIt provides complete insight into the location and status of deliveries without driver input, automating delivery status reporting and eliminating driver reporting errors."
Minimal hardware with easy installation gets trucks connected and on-the-go quickly. Drum direction and speed are captured throughout the delivery process providing an accurate count of rotations as well as the status of the truck at the jobsite.
The optional water-add meter sensor captures water being added to the concrete and will let the driver know how much water can be added within the mix design specifications. Historical reporting of water additions will also help protect against false claims from customers.
• Automated loading, pouring and washing statuses
• Integration with an optional Water Flow Meter for water additions
• Support for virtually any truck regardless of truck age
• Real time alerts and historical reporting
