GivenHansco programmers enable Keystone Online Operations users to build extensive dashboards for timely tracking of raw material, ready mixed concrete output, fleet status and order flow.

“Keystone Online Operations is the only industry specific online application that provides an advanced, flexible, finger-tip communication platform for maximum operations control, tracking, and time management fulfillment,” says GivenHansco Vice President Ron Wallace. “It delivers a new realm of streamlined control and logistics management for today’s ready-mix concrete operations professional.”

Designed in-house, Keystone Online Operations is comprised of “On-Demand” and “Key Performance Indicators.” The collection of online tools gives end users the power to monitor, manage, and optimize efficiency throughout their organizations, whether they are at their desk or in the field.

On-Demand is a versatile tablet or mobile device program that progressively allows users to view all orders for all plants—monitoring any day’s loads, tickets, batch weights, and truck locations. With one flexible, powerful platform, orders can be viewed by single or multi-location plants, salesperson, and customer by date range.

Key Performance Indicators is a graphical dashboard affording up to the minute view of productivity and efficiency using easy to understand charts and graphs. Dashboards can be customized to job roles so that plant managers can focus on production, sales managers on sales, and owners on profitability of essential performance modules including:
