TRUX has launched a new widget within its Order Delivery Tracker tool for material producers. The debut of the delivery velocity visualization provides customers with greater insights into their scheduled deliveries and helps them monitor and improve their jobsite operations and efficiency.
With the addition of this widget to the Order Delivery Tracker, material producers can provide a more enhanced customer service experience to their customers. The new tool builds on the existing ability to track deliveries throughout the day and get an accurate estimated time of arrival for material en route to the jobsite. The widget displays the number of tons delivered per hour, the number of scheduled tons per hour, and the average delivered tons per hour, all designed to measure delivery velocity on a broader order level.
“Since we launched the Order Delivery Tracker in October of 2019, we have been able to provide material producers with a detailed view of delivery progress for their customers,” said Bart Ronan, CEO of TRUX. “The introduction of this new widget takes our tool one step further and provides order-level insights to help material producers provide a differentiated service to their end-customers. Jobsite operations are significantly impacted by the number of tons delivered per hour and there was not an accurate way to capture this information in the field. Time-sensitive materials, like asphalt, or equipment that is rated for a particular velocity rely on accurate delivery velocity and now we are able to provide that through our Order Delivery Tracker.”
The delivery velocity widget is the first in a series of widgets TRUX plans to launch aimed at helping material producers optimize delivery management and prepare contractors to receive material on-site. The additional visualizations, expected later this year, will allow material producers to provide even more value to their customers, with deeper insights into delivery status, jobsite efficiency and overall material supply.
