B2W Software to Introduce New Scheduling and Dispatching Solution for Heavy Construction at CONEXPO/CON-AGG
B2W Schedule Strengthens ONE Platform, Providing Vital Features
to Optimize Resources
Portsmouth, NH – February 24, 2017 -- B2W Software, a leading provider of heavy civil construction management software, will introduce its B2W Schedule solution at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2017 (South Hall – Booth 65228). As an addition to the company’s unified ONE Platform for estimating, operations and business intelligence, B2W Schedule enables contractors to manage resources more effectively across job sites and over time, by centralizing the scheduling and dispatching process and connecting it with field management and maintenance workflows.
“Advanced analysis and scheduling functionality, drag-and-drop simplicity and real-time connectivity across the enterprise are the key advantages with B2W Schedule,” according to B2W Software CEO Paul McKeon. “This new element empowers employees to communicate and collaborate to optimize crews and equipment.”
B2W Schedule provides customized daily or longer-term views of resources. Scheduling – including submission and fulfillment of resource requests – can be completed in real time, with role-specific access and visibility across the enterprise via mobile tablet or desktop devices. The system intuitively identifies resource needs and conflicts, and presents solution options. A Map View incorporates GPS and telematics data to assist with scheduling and logistics.
B2W Schedule is unified with B2W Software elements for field tracking and equipment maintenance. Each of the elements utilizes and updates one common operational database that includes employee, equipment and job information. The platform approach ensures real-time accuracy and eliminates redundant data entry.
B2W Software will also highlight B2W Inform at the CONEXPO/CON-AGG show – a mobile-first solution for data capture and analysis that was added to the ONE Platform in 2016. Contractors throughout North America use B2W Inform to create configurable electronic forms, replace inefficient paper-based processes, and mine data to generate reports, dashboards and immediate alerts.
Additional elements within the ONE Platform include B2W Estimate for estimating and bidding, B2W Track for field tracking and analysis, and B2W Maintain for equipment maintenance and repair. The ONE Platform allows contractors to leverage a singles source for operational data, common user interfaces and a logical flow of data across the elements in real time. Full mobile functionality, including a unified B2W Mobile App enables anytime, anywhere access to the operations platform elements on Apple or Android tablets.
“Our platform approach provides substantial advantages over trying to integrate disparate software solutions for individual workflows,” explains McKeon. “Unified software elements connect people, workflows and data to enhance efficiency, data-driven decision making and project outcomes.”
