HCSS announced at the 2019 Users Group Meetings that its trucking software is ready for release to existing HeavyJob customers.
HCSS Trucking is designed to help construction companies digitize the trucking process and, after a year of Beta testing, it is now available for current HeavyJob Mobile users.
“As we close this Beta period, this next period is about making sure that we can push this into HeavyJob in the right way before releasing to the general public,” said Tom Webb, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Research and Development. “We think we’ll be able to provide a lot of value to the industry by doing it this way.”
HCSS Trucking allows contractors to manage brokered and owned trucks utilizing easy-to-use technology. It features a mobile app for ticket writers in the field to record trucks entering and exiting the job site and create paperless tickets, sending load and dump events to the office. Managers can see cycle times in real time to spot herding or request additional trucks, optimizing and improving operations immediately.
The software is perfectly designed for earthwork, demolition, and paving contractors, allowing you to manage your trucking based on loads or cycle times.
HCSS Trucking also features Bluetooth-enabled “Beacon” receivers that drivers keep in their trucks, allowing them to be recognized by the app in the field any time they are in range. “LoadBots,” unmanned ticket taker devices, can be set up at job site entrances or dump sites to record trucks automatically.
“This is a groundbreaking product, and we expect pretty heavy adoption,” said Josh McDonald, HCSS Trucking Product Manager. “We want to start with HeavyJob Mobile customers first because it will be the simplest to implement with them, and we think we’ll get a good groundswell moving forward.” HCSS Trucking integrates with HeavyJob to set up jobs and job information and push hours to time cards and daily diaries.
