ERoad, BCMI work to streamline concrete supply chain workflow

The partnership is aimed at uploading and auto-updating information in multiple systems simultaneously, limiting the need to manually input the same data in different applications.

ERoad announced that it is is now collaborating with Bulk Construction Materials Initiative (BCMI), which develops cloud-based software for ready-mix concrete and bulk materials, to improve concrete supply chain efficiency. The main goal of this partnership, according to the companies, is to upload and auto-update information in multiple systems simultaneously, limiting the need to manually input the same data in different applications.

ERoad’s Drive app can be installed on Android-based tablets in the cabs of trucks that use CoreHub, ERoad’s telematic gateway. Job details and with supporting information are sent from BCMI’s dispatch platform to drivers’ tablets. Auto-status updates and log-in details are transmitted between BCMI and ERoad for logging and analysis. Text messages can also be sent and received from the Drive app, displaying on drivers’ in-cab tablets and are visible from BCMI’s dispatch system.

“By joining forces with BCMI, we are positioned to deliver unparalleled value to our shared ready-mix customers by aiding with plant-to-site visibility, turning complex data into actionable information, streamlining workflow, enhancing efficiency, and ultimately, driving greater business success,” said Dean Marris, ERoad’s chief data science officer.
