Welcome to the Bulk Construction Materials Initiative

We are a collection of software developers and producers of ready-mix concrete, aggregates, cement and asphalt envisioning what the industry can become, and building the tools to get us there.

 

Real tools for a real-time industry

The Initiative has resulted in cloud-based industry specific software including sales, CRM, mix management, quality control, dispatch, truck tracking and billing. Material producers, contractors and their suppliers are now collaborating with Material Pro and Material Now apps at the office, on the road, and at the job site. It’s your data, and we put it all in your hands.

    Truck Tracking

    Contractors don’t have to call Dispatch to find out when their next truck is on the way. The Material Now app shows each truck and its status: ETA to jobsite, Waiting on Job, Pouring, Washing. With each load, contractors and producers see real-time project status updates.

    Job Site Performance

    Material producers and contractors can now see the same project details anytime, from anywhere. Sales reps can troubleshoot issues before arriving at the jobsite. Contractors can contact Dispatch as soon as trucks start to stack up. Both can see step-by-step job details to investigate problems on past orders.

    Alerts

    Material Pro and Material Now apps deliver email or text alerts to your mobile device. Set a reminder to follow up on a new project bid. Get a note when a new order is placed, or a truck is 10 minutes away from the job site. Customized alerts keep every day on track.

    Order Request

    Send new order requests from a phone, tablet or laptop, with the Material Now app. A simple form captures order details and submits them directly to Dispatch. Whether it’s a new or standing order, contractors can submit it directly from the field – and skip the phone call.
