Operations management and dispatch system

The Access Unlimited system maximizes the efficiency and productivity of any concrete plant using client/server architecture for fast, efficient operations over networks, modems, and cell phones. Orders are taken faster, and scheduling graphs can be customized to reflect truck or plant demand. The system can also be integrated with accounting systems. Jonel Engineering. 800-432-4567. www.jonel.com..

Track trucks in the field

The TRK-240 Mobile Display Terminal gives dispatchers the ability to communicate with and keep track of trucks in the field. It can be fitted with a GPS device, as well as a credit card reader, bar code scanner, external memory module, external keyboard, and a mobile printer. It features a four-line x 40-character message screen for the driver to receive information from the dispatcher. CES Wireless Technologies Corp. 800-327-9956. www.ceswireless.com..

Web-based dispatching system

ConcreteGo.com is a Web-based dispatching system that let's producers reduce non-productive time, cut delivery costs, and improve on-time deliveries. Users log in to enter orders, deploy trucks, send tickets to batching computers, and transfer the tickets to accounting. The system is suited for small to medium operations. Sysdyne Corp. 877-797-3963. www.sysdynecorp.com..

No more incomplete tickets

Specifically designed for ready-mix producers, the fully integrated DigiTic ticketing device requires drivers to completely enter ticket and delivery information. It features forensically verifiable digital signature, and can give the driver complete product information before he loads. The digital information can also be supplied to customers, or analyzed to improve efficiency. Paradyme Technologies. 877-624-6848. www.paradymetechnologies.com..

Dispatch module eliminates errors

The Integra Ready Mix Dispatch module matches the plant, vehicle, and material resources to contractor requirements. It automates much of the order entry process, saving time and eliminating errors. This scale-able, Windows-compliant system also can work with most tracking and GPS vehicle management systems to monitor truck activity. Other functions include COD pricing, planning, dynamic demand graph monitoring, and performance analysis. Systech Inc. 630-515-0200. www.systech-inc.com..

System checks fingerprints

The BioTrakit is a new biometric sensor and software solution designed to act as a time clock for the TrakitGPS vehicle tracking module. The system will work with any USB-equipped PC computer and allows workers to sign in and out by touching the sensor with their finger. Trakit GPS. 801-273-0111. www.trakit-gps.com..

New GPS feature

The Dispatcher resource management software added an integrated GPS feature. When a truck moves into a predefined area, that event is recorded and a trucking cycle-time report can be produced. In addition to cycle-time analysis, the GPS shows where equipment is currently located, where it's been, its speed, and meter readings. The package includes the GPS receiver, antenna and harness, data service coverage, airtime, and software. HCSS. 800-683-3196. www.hcss.com..
