As the COVID-19 pandemic forced the ready-mix industry to find new ways to keep workers safe yet connected, the Illinois Ready Mixed Concrete Association (IRMCA), Illinois Department of Transportation, concrete producer Welsch Ready Mix and contractor RW Dunteman worked together to go paperless for a pilot pour. The organizations teamed with BCMI to begin integrating electronic ticketing and recordkeeping into ready-mix businesses.
“I am pleased at how the industry reacted through the COVID-19 period to provide electronic data to any device and make it very user friendly, with all the data easily transferrable to other entities for recordkeeping purposes. Like most technology, it is going to keep improving fast!” says Jim Randolph, executive director of IRMCA.
