B2W Software has added new capabilities within its B2W Schedule application to assist in managing trucking orders and assignments with online visibility and real-time agility.
“Continuously changing resource and trucking requirements are the nature of the business in heavy construction,” said B2W Software CEO and Founder Paul McKeon. “The essential benefit with B2W Schedule is the ability for stakeholders throughout an organization – including those in the field – to collaborate in real time to manage resources at maximum efficiency.”
B2W Schedule provides a centralized view of resource needs and assignments, equipment moves, material orders and trucking requirements. Users access the system from desktop, laptop or tablet devices and customize one-day, multi-day or multi-week views, according to their roles. Specific users can create and modify assignments with drag-and-drop simplicity, based on permission levels.
Move Planner and Mass Haul Planner modules within B2W Schedule are used to manage equipment moves and mass haul schedules efficiently. Notifications about these trucking assignments, including revisions to a schedule, can be communicated automatically to drivers via text message or email.
B2W Schedule also assists in identifying and resolving scheduling conflicts, and includes a Map View to validate the location of resources.
