The partners will seek to eliminate paper tickets, manual tasks and automate data flows so that inter-company operations are easier and more friction-free on the jobsite.
JP Giometti, executive director of global strategy and business development at HCSS, says: “Removing data entry of material tickets and simplifying reconciliation are game-changers. Our customers will applaud their bulk material ticket information being automatically presented in their HCSS field and project management software applications.”
Steve Cox, vice president of business development at Command Alkon, says: “Harmonising information digitally, from supplier production, schedule, dispatch, and transportation management systems through to software solutions in the hands of contractors and owners will enrich the experience for buyers and sellers alike.”
Command Alkon says the Connex Platform enables the integration of their product portfolios to deliver information to all stakeholders in real-time.
As part of the deal, both parties are conducting joint R&D efforts alongside customer feedback sessions to help ensure reliable interoperability.
More details will be presented at Elevate – Construction’s Heavy Work Conference & Expo – in November in Chicago, and at the HCSS User Group Meetings in January in Houston.
