SUGAR LAND, Texas, April 7, 2020 (Newswire.com) - To keep the construction industry moving during COVID-19, HCSS is waiving the charge for its HCSS Trucking software. Companies who sign up for free HCSS Trucking can completely eliminate the handling and hassle of paper truck tickets at no cost through June 30.
The solution, which provides less person-to-person contact and more effective tracking of loads and tons of material, such as asphalt, aggregates, and dirt, is perfect for companies that are trying to keep their people safe while improving their efficiency in this lean time. Moving to electronic ticketing is especially critical for companies operating in states with new guidance, such as Alabama Department of Transportation's recent ban on accepting any paper tickets as materials are delivered.
HCSS' completely free option gives ticket takers and foremen the option to download the ticket taker app and log every truck that comes on-site, along with any quantity and cost code information, plus take and store photos of tickets to eliminate the need for paper tickets.
Drivers can also download the HCSS smartphone app to indicate load and dump events, as well as other information, and record an event when their phone GPS enters a geofence.
The HCSS partnership with Command Alkon also takes advantage of its free offer of the Connex platform; when used together, the tools allow companies to automate both their material and truck tickets for free until July 1.
Organizations that wish to further automate can add optional low-cost Bluetooth beacons and "Loadbots" (load-tracking robots) to collect data even where no human being is present, such as dump sites, dangerous high-traffic areas, or inside the cab of a loader or paving machine. The software remains free, and only if they wish to use these fully automated options would companies pay the small fee to purchase the hardware from HCSS.
This no-cost HCSS Trucking offer is just one way that HCSS has mobilized to help the heavy construction industry continue to operate efficiently and effectively in uncertain times. The company has also added eight COVID-19 safety meetings and two inspection forms in both English and Spanish to their HCSS Safety product and will be providing these resources free to the industry to help keep workers healthy.
