Command Alkon Introduces CONNEX

Command Alkon introduced CONNEX, a next-generation vertical cloud solution designed to increase productivity levels and create unprecedented results across project performance, schedule, workforce management and safety.

HaulHub Partners with Command Alkon on CONNEX Platform FOB Material Order DashboardWhen no longer reliant on manual or paper-based workflows, CONNEX-enabled companies gain many more automated processes, capture clear visibility into inter-company operations, and experience real-time collaboration and business intelligence tools tailored to their role in the heavy work supply chain.

“Based on Command Alkon’s longstanding community of heavy material suppliers that are critical to all jobsites, we whole-heartedly embrace this unique opportunity to deliver break-through capabilities to the global construction industry,” said Phil Ramsey, chief executive officer at Command Alkon. “More than 40 years of proven performance and partnerships on the supply-side makes us the natural choice to digitally connect the end-to-end ecosystem.”

As an open industry collaboration platform for construction, CONNEX connects contractors, project owners and jobsite inspectors with their heavy building material suppliers and haulers to accomplish more together than they would on their own. Supporting shared digital transformation goals, the platform ensures stakeholders are all working with the same trustworthy information and resources; creating transparency and removing waste.

“In an Amazon experience world, our industry can no longer depend on five-part paper forms, phone calls and faxes, disconnected systems, and difficult to access data,” said Ed Rusch, vice president of marketing at Command Alkon. “We’re thrilled to help lead the journey to connect the dots across systems, deliver software to facilitate business-critical operations, execute frictionless transactions, reveal insights that fuel success, and eliminate risk; all while helping people and businesses grow intelligently.”

Without a collaboration platform like CONNEX, certainty of outcomes on construction projects will remain opaque; continuing to fail to meet time and budget goals. Critical path materials like concrete, aggregates and asphalt, along with their haulers, all play significant roles in every heavy civil and commercial project’s success. Hence a neutral, digitally connected, many-to-many software platform is needed to make a major impact on removing decades old productivity barriers across the industry.

“A collective desire of ‘help me work more efficiently with my external partners’ has been made clear from across the industry,” said Chris Strickland, vice president of product management at Command Alkon. “From production, to fulfillment, logistics and the jobsite, CONNEX delivers powerful analytics that reveal new possibilities, unlock additional dimensions of value, and enrich investments already made in heavy work technologies.”
