ConcreteGo.com® is a central dispatch solution tailored for the ready-mix concrete and materials industry. Like any other central dispatch product, ConcreteGo helps producers allocate resources effectively, improve operation efficiency and provide better customer care. Applying cloud-computing technology, ConcreteGo delivers all the functions and benefits of a dispatch system, over through a secure Internet site. It can reduce, or even eliminate, the hassle of building and maintaining an IT infrastructure and complex private network previously necessary to maintaining a central dispatch.

Our system is easy to learn and use. All you need is a PC with broad-band internet access such as cable, Fios, DSL or a wireless Internet card. Simply open Internet Explorer, type in www.concretego.com and log in with your user name and password. Now you are ready to start using the central dispatch. SYSDYNE staff can complete the initial setup quickly, importing data from accounting, batch systems, or other dispatch systems. Training is done on-site or remotely. Total implementation takes from two weeks to one month for most producers.


The following are some feature highlights with screen shots:

  • ConcreteGo enables dispatchers to enter orders efficiently with utilities such as auto-complete, mapping, routing, and automatic travel estimates.

order-tools

  • ConcreteGo’s tracking screen manages plants, orders and trucks. Truck status is automatically updated when interfaced with a GPS status system, such as Trimble GPS signaling system and Trakit GPS system, which are readily available. We can also build custom interface with other GPS systems upon request.

  • ConcreteGo will work with any batch control that supports the Universal-Link protocol, and offers two-way communication. These features allow plants to centrally manage and adjust all mix designs via dispatch. In addition, our program allows dispatch to extract batch weights as soon as the load is finished.

  • The built-in Concrete Messenger application optimizes communication between dispatch and batching personnel. Drivers with trucks using GPS systems that support messaging can also communicate with the team.

ConcreteGo can also interface with back office and accounting systems to automatically bill completed orders.
