GivenHansco, an Ohio-based software developer premiered its new Keystone On-Demand mobile app at the World of Concrete show in Las Vegas earlier this year.
An extension of their advanced Keystone Dispatch, Truck Tracking and Financials suite, On- Demand is said to be a ‘first of its kind’ mobile app providing live business intelligence to ready-mixed concrete sales personnel, plant managers and owners in the field.
Designed in house by GivenHansco, On-Demand is written for and compatible with most iPad and Android devices.
“Rather than mimic the functionality of our desktop applications, we took great care to create an app focused on the essential tasks that mobile employees need to accomplish,” said GivenHansco president Mike Sanders.
“On-Demand is responsive and easy to use with a clean, modern design. The app leverages the vast array of data from the Keystone Office Suite, yet doesn’t overwhelm the user with information overload.”
According to GivenHansco, On-Demand opens up a new realm of streamlined customer service possibilities for today’s concrete industry. A multitude of functions provide an immediate overview of focused information that can be leveraged from virtually anywhere, including: drill-down schedule data from plant overview to ticket detail; tracking of truck on-job times with live GPS map view; customer account balances and ticket history; and job-site awareness for sales personnel that allows them to solve problems on site.
Being touted as ‘the intelligent mobile app’, GivenHansco vice-president Ron Wallace says the key inspiration for Keystone On-Demand is to put the power of Keystone in the palm of your hand. ‘With anytime, anywhere access to critical information, producers gain the power to serve their customers in a newly effective and efficient manner,’ he said.
Keystone On-Demand is available as an add-on to the Keystone integrated product line, consisting of the award-winning Keystone Accounting, Keystone Batch, Keystone Dispatch and Keystone GPS. GivenHansco say they plan to expand the mobile app platform across the entire Keystone product line.
