GivenHansco, a leading developer of integrated producer-driven software products for the ready mixed concrete industry, has launched an online suite: Keystone Online Operations. This is an extension of the company’s Keystone Online family of products that enable plant managers, sales teams, and owners to look at orders in real-time. They can receive the information needed to make intelligent business decisions that can decrease operational costs and increase fleet efficiency.

Keystone Operations is comprised of on demand and key performance indicators. The collection of online tools provides end users with the power to monitor, manage, and optimise efficiency throughout an organisation, both at desks and in the field.

On demand

A versatile online, tablet, and mobile device programme progressively allows users to view orders for all plants. This includes the monitoring of any day’s loads, tickets, batch weights, and truck locations. With one platform, orders can immediately be viewed by single and multi-location plants, sales people, and customers by date range.

Key performance indicators

An up-to-the-minute dashboard shows productivity and efficiency with easy-to-understand charts and graphs. This can be customised to job roles, meaning that plant managers can focus on production, sales managers can focus on sales, and owners can focus on the profitability of essential performance modules.

These modules include an actual sales widget, average minutes per load in status, loads and yards per hour, material required per hour, on time by status, and time in stats vs target.


Optimising the production and delivery cycle is critical for efficient operations and profitability in the ready mixed concrete industry. The Keystone Online system allows vital operations personnel to have an immediate bird’s eye view, with the choice of the dashboard operation that they wish to monitor and manage.

“Keystone Online Operations is the only industry specific online application that provides an advanced, flexible, finger-tip communication platform for maximum operations control, tracking, and time management fulfilment,” said Ron Wallace, Vice President of GivenHansco. “It delivers a new realm of streamlined control and logistics management for today’s ready mixed concrete operations.”
