Command Alkon, a global leader in digital supply chain solutions for the building materials industry, has introduced BuildIt, a technological solution to aid Contractors, Haulers, and Suppliers in interaction along the supply chain.
Companies can order, receive, and account for materials being delivered to the job site, all on a centralized platform that integrates with virtually any ticketing software, transforming the way that trading partners communicate with one another.
“In North America alone, roughly 250 million tickets are handled each year by the heavy building materials industry. These tickets are often in multi-part forms that are manually key punched into other systems,” said Steve Cox, VP, Business Development at Command Alkon. “The industry is beginning to understand that we are all part of an ecosystem where all participants impact and are impacted by each other. We need to modernise and transform to digital formats for better communication, collaboration, and information exchange across all community participants. Digitisation generates more timely and accurate data, enabling faster, more intelligent business decisions.”
Command Alkon’s BuildIt solution offers a centralised information archive allows entire ecosystem to engage and interact with information, brings material ticketing information to life by tracking materials entering a jobsite to streamline the real-time delivery process, provides real-time visibility of material quantities and job expenses, and better asset utilisation by knowing where trucks are at all times through TrackIt integration.
